ARE YOU READY TO FEEL GREAT?
FIT GIRLS SF
I'm Alexis - a Ketogenic Living Certified Coach and fitness instructor located in San Francisco, California. My goal is to improve my clients' quality of life through nutritional therapy, keto dietary education, and personalized fitness programming – I am here to show people just how great they are capable of feeling.
It takes more than just knowledge of keto’s benefits to stick to this lifestyle - It takes support from someone who has been in your exact position - someone who is honest and relatable.
I’m that person. That friend. That coach. And I am here to help you find a way to eat and live keto that best fits your health goals and lifestyle.
WHAT IS KETO?
Ketosis is a natural state for the body in which it becomes almost completely fueled by fat through eating a ketogenic diet: low carb, moderate protein, and lots of healthy fats. As babies, we are all born in a state of ketosis and remain that way until we begin eating solid foods (breast milk is almost entirely fat!) We also dip into a state of ketosis when we enter prolonged periods of not eating, or fasting, including while we are asleep. It is highly likely that you wake up in a ketogenic state!
While in ketosis, the body is producing ketones. These small molecules are used as fuel when we have depleted our glucose (a.k.a. blood sugar) supply. Ketones are produced in the liver from fat, as we eat very few carbs and a moderate amount of protein.
The entire body – including the brain – consumes ketones as fuel.
Those of us who follow a ketogenic lifestyle switch our fuel sources back to the way we were born: we run almost entirely on fat. Insulin hormones dip to low levels and we rapidly burn stored fat for fuel. Outside of weight loss, those in ketosis experience sustained energy, mental focus, exercise endurance, and a ton of other health benefits such as preventing, treating, and curing chronic illness and life-threatening disease.
To put it simply: eat fat to burn fat....
"Alexis a gem of a human. She has filled my life with laughter and an insane amount of information. She documents her life and struggles in such a real and raw way that you cant help but relate (and laugh). She is incredibly smart and so passionate about nutrition and the ketogenic lifestyle, breaking everything down so that anyone can understand. The keto community is awesome (don't get me wrong) but it is flooded with people pushing and selling "keto" products...Alexis is quite the opposite and genuinely just wants to help and educate others. She has absolutely no ill intentions or need for a sale. She has helped me in so many ways and I cannot thank her enough. She will be your biggest cheerleader and better your life in so many ways. Make her part of your life and you will be forever thankful."
