031. "Are you keto?" "No, I'm Netta!"

So what's the difference between Life After Sugar and keto? And why does it annoy me when people ask me: "Netta, are you keto?"In this episode I explain what keto is and its history, and how it's become so popular today. Yes,  it's understandable that people confuse how I eat with the keto way of eating, because both approaches cut out sugar. But I also rant a little about why I don't like to be identified with  what I eat. I'm me, I'm not my food! Keto is great, but it doesn't fit my personality. I point out several similarities and differences between Life After Sugar and keto. For example, I don't enjoy tracking my food or counting grams or seeing what I eat in terms of macros. I don't use any type of sweetener. I also include all fruit in my diet (albeit not much of it, as now my tastebuds get overwhelmed with only a little sweetness).But that doesn't make keto "bad". On the contrary, I think it's great because it questions accepted dietary dogma and aims to reduce unnecessary sugars and starches. It's just that my experience of the posts and exchanges in various keto groups was... well, off-putting, and I talk about that in this episode.Basically, in my humble opinion, do whatever is a good fit for you, both for your food and for your personality. That, for me, is part of Life After Sugar, and a big part of feeling free!To know more about Life After Sugar, go here: https://aftersugarclub.com/
