What Is Sharketo?
That’s simple….it’s keto with Shar in front of it…but it’s so much more than that.
I started the keto lifestyle on April 17th, 2017 with the hopes of losing a few pounds and I went all out- I started watching YouTube videos and doing research and trying to figure out what I could eat and what I needed to do.
I joined Facebook groups to get valuable information from people doing keto and that is where Sharketo was born- I got so many conflicted opinions that it almost made me just give up and go back to killing myself slowly…then I decided to take keto and make it MINE.
Everyone is different and the exact plan usually won’t work for the same two people and I understand that…I got tired of people telling others what THEY could eat and what they couldn’t and if you didn’t agree with specific people 100%, then they would be snobbish and try to tell you that you weren’t doing keto…but that is their opinion.
Keto is pretty simple – the ketogenic diet is a high fat, adequate protein, low carbohydrate diet that forces your body to burn fat instead for energy.
With that said, it can also get really, really complicated and that could scare people away…throw the rude know it all’s in there and some people may give up…well, those people can come over and do Sharketo with me! You don’t have to do keto perfectly to do Sharketo…you just have to make better changes through research and adapting to what works well for you until you eventually find that sweet spot.
Sharketo is basically keto….only with a learning curve! You don’t have to be perfect when you start Sharketo and you can screw up and make mistakes and even eat the wrong thing and no one is going to yell at you.
My wife and I made huge changes and we still needed some things that “keto elitists” describe as “no-nos” or “chemical shitstorms” and that is because these folks don’t understand that if you do a complete change, overnight, it’s probably not going to stick. I am NOT telling you to go out and eat all the sugar alcohols or eating process food is good for you….I’m saying that if you need that stuff to make the change easier…to slow into it and make long last changes- then go for it!
So…we cut our carbs way down but we still eat some Atkins bars that may contain specific alternative sugars that cause your insulin to spike and YES…that may stall your weight loss but, at first, it’s fine and you adapt and change as you learn more and figure out what works best for you.
Sharketo is keto…without the assholes.
Love, Peace and Sharkyness
