Too much of a good thing can be a bad thing!

Some people believe they should stay completely away from wheat, gluten and all starches. There a those who stay in ketosis using alternatives to bread, pastries and sweets. They successfully stay low carb with artificial sweeteners, sugar alcohol and modern food products that mimic a high carb diet. This is an interesting method in that in the absence of calorie concern, portion control could get out of control. You could still be in ketosis while consuming way more calories than you need. Consuming Stevia, erythritol, Sucralose and other sweeteners multiple times a day, everyday may cause other imbalances in digestion, hormones and thus, your health.  This could be why you have plateaued!

Tina Kotterman reminds me that treats are just that, treats.  Treats, by definition are not supposed to be eaten everyday.  They are supposed to be things that enhance an event or celebration, not a commonplace food that you expect everyday.  If you develop that mindset, you’ll be able to manage healthy eating better both physiologically and psychologically.  So how is your mindset?

Do you depend on “keto safe” foods that you can eat large quantities of?  or can you eat 1 -2 small slices of a low carb pizza (like the recipe in my newsletter below) and receive the benefit of a small portion of legumes in your diet.  The American habit of eating a whole pizza or even a half of one is in part, one of the reasons we’ve gotten to this modern health dilemma.  There may be valid health conditions that warrant a no bean diet but,  just because it’s not “Paleo” is not a reason to banish all legumes from your diet for ever.  They actually have nutrients in them.

NEWS FLASH: It’s a Family Affair!

Twenty one years ago, Tina and I started TriSystem here in San Diego.  Through raising our children and supporting family living with us, we have kept TriSystem going through it all.  Together, Tina and I along with Kathy and the rest of our TriSystem team, have grown and adapted our nutrition, exercise and supplementation programs to continue to be the most contemporary, research based and effective of anywhere else.  No one does what we do, the way we do it.

For a time, Tina limited her clients to just a few with special needs and in-home training requirements.  Over the last two decades together, we have been in the center and in homes doing everything from shopping with clients to building home gyms and, of course, training at the center.  With the recent new changes in nutrition planning and training, you will see more of our whole family participating at the TriSystem Center.  Noah, Kaetlyn, Tina and I are working together to bring a collaborative service that is more effective and customized than ever before. 

*Tina is now adding additional training session availability to her schedule.  If you’d like to train with Tina please respond in the form below and specifically request her.  Her sessions are filling up quickly.

  • We are now medically supervised by our medical director, Dr. Brian Lenzkes, one of the most recognized physicians in San Diego available for consultation
  • We have new nutrition planning that includes the full spectrum of eating styles from vegan to ketogenic, we have the expertise to develop the individual menus that fit you best.
  • We have new exercise programs that are really effective for those with joint issues or conditions that prohibit traditional exercise.  We are now working with Dr. Ben Bocchicchio to provide his innovative S.Ma.R.T. training.
  • We have also included the Intermittent fasting protocol and research from Dr. Jason Fung.
  • We now have a doctor of Physical Therapy,  Dr. Marc Robinson available for consultations.

Take some time to get a free assessment and see if you can be a part of all the new things going on at the TriSystem Center.
