About
It's NOT a diet, it's a way of life.

What exactly is Keto? A (keto)genic way of eating is well known for being a low carb diet, where the body produces ketones in the liver to be used as energy. It’s referred to as many different names – ketogenic diet, low carb diet, low carb high fat (LCHF), etc.

When you eat something high in carbs, your body will produce glucose and insulin.

  • Glucose is the easiest molecule for your body to convert and use as energy so that it will be chosen over any other energy source.
  • Insulin is produced to process the glucose in your bloodstream by taking it around the body.

Since the glucose is being used as a primary energy, your fats are not needed and are therefore stored. Typically on a normal, higher carbohydrate diet, the body will use glucose as the main form of energy. By lowering the intake of carbs, the body is induced into a state known as ketosis.

Ketosis is a natural process the body initiates to help us survive when food intake is low. During this state, we produce ketones, which are produced from the breakdown of fats in the liver.

The end goal of a properly maintained keto diet is to force your body into this metabolic state. We don’t do this through starvation of calories but starvation of carbohydrates.

Our bodies are incredibly adaptive to what you put into it – when you overload it with fats and take away carbohydrates, it will begin to burn ketones as the primary energy source. Optimal ketone levels offer many health, weight loss, physical and mental performance benefits.

What some recent clients say about their experience with Fox Valley Keto Coach

We might be biased. Take it from our clients.

Nutrition, diet, and exercise are complicated and frustrating for me. Who do you trust? How do you know what works and what doesn't? Everywhere I turn, someone is trying to give me advice on how to meet my goals. I feel like I've never been able to stick to a plan that works, feels right and is sustainable long term (not a crash diet). Luckily, I found Tifany and her coaching gave me the end-all-be-all answer I was looking for, for so many years. Tifany took me by the hand and showed me how to eat simply, enjoy what I eat and know that I am eating foods without processed sugars or harmful ingredients. Not only was I able to gain muscle through strength training, lose weight with this diet, but the best part is that I have consistent energy throughout the day. I work long hours and I was turning to a lot of energy drinks to keep me going but I was able to kick that habit with this nutrition plan. Oh, and, one more bonus: my skin has never been clearer. I haven't had a breakout in months and I believe it's part of eating whole and learning about various nutrition ideas from Tifany.

If there is any part of you that thinks this may be a fad diet, it's not. I thought this at first as well. Tifany pointed me to the independent and verified scientific research behind keto. I learned that keto is not a new concept, but one that is just not becoming mainstream. This gave me some piece of mind. I'm the type that likes to research and find supporting, verifiable facts on my own, opposed to the hundreds of other fad diets out there. 

Tifany works at your pace and at your comfort level but she's also not afraid to push you and be honest with you. She genuinely cares about her client's success. I highly recommend her to anyone looking to become significantly healthier, lose weight, build muscle, gain energy and rest easy knowing that you finally found a nutrition and health plan that works.

I would have never been able to do this without Tifani. She encouraged me and taught me valuable info to succeed. She knew exactly what I needed to hear. I loved her support and the many kind words she said to me. I needed that positive encouragement she gave me weekly! There is so much conflicting information on keto and it was so reassuring to have her knowledge, compassion and counseling during our sessions. Thank you Tifani for being awesome! KETO FOREVER!

Early on in 2019 I felt crummy. Like “couldn’t do normal activities for six weeks kind of crummy”. During this time, I had a LOT of time to lay around and think about the changes I needed to make in order to enjoy life and family! Before following Fox Valley Keto Coach, I had heard a little about Keto and was pretty skeptical. Honestly, it sounded like a heart attack waiting to happen. In early April, I decided to cut out grain and sugar but still wasn’t 100% sold on this Keto thing. Slowly, I started trying some Keto recipes and then after about two weeks I messaged Fox Valley Keto Coach for advice and I’m SO glad I did!!! Tifani is so helpful, knowledgeable, and encouraging! This time last year, I wanted to do something drastic (gastric bypass) because I had given up hope of ever losing weight or feeling good. Since beginning Keto in April, I have lost a little over 20 pounds and most importantly I feel amazing! My journey has been slower than some but it is a success in my book! Every time I was frustrated and thought I wasn’t doing something right or wanted to give up, Tifani was there encouraging me and reassuring me to stay the course! If you haven’t tried the recipes, I recommend it! They are SO yummy! If you are thinking about trying Keto but you are convinced it will fail you like all the other diets you’ve tried, give it a chance. It has made a world of difference in my energy and I can wear clothes I had given up on!

My Story
What brought me to my ketogenic way of life

I've always tried to eat right and exercise in my adult life, with the exception of my college years. I'm on the shorter side and tend to gain weight quickly. Losing weight was never an issue for me. It just seemed to come off with a little effort.

Enter babies and several years older. I found myself with 40 pounds to lose. I enlisted the help of a personal trainer who whipped my butt into shape and, within 6 months and A LOT of hard work, I had the weight off.  

As time passed, I found myself just plain tired, run down, gaining weight and hormonally out of whack. Yes, I have kids and a busy life but I felt like, no matter what I did, how hard I exercised, how much I tried to sleep and destress, nothing was working.  

So many thoughts crossed through my brain during this time. Was I perimenopausal? I thought I was too young for this but I didn't know when that all starts. Did I have too much on my plate? Too much stress? Eating too much?  

As I researched Dr. Google, trying to figure out what the heck to do, I kept coming across Keto. I would laugh at this. What an insanely crazy thing to do! I thought, these people are going to die of a heart attack!  

Months went by with still no motivation, no get-up and go, no energy, 15 pounds heavier and terrible brain fog. Finally, after months of seeing the Ketogenic way of eating flash across my computer screen, one day, I decided to actually read about it. I read, and read, and read, and read and then researched and researched and researched, and researched. And then I decided to try it. I began with the mindset that this would be temporary. I would just try it for a few weeks to see if all the hype was true. If I would REALLY have more energy, clarity and feel better???? This is where my life changed.

After several weeks of getting my body to transition to a fat burning machine, a light switch just turned on. Here it all was, the energy, the clarity, my motivation....all back with a vengeance. My hormones out of whack, my bloating, my 15 pounds GONE. I wish I could make this stuff up.

After going in with a mindset of 'I'm just going to try this for a few weeks', I knew I could never eat differently again. This was it for me. I was sold.

As time passes, my body continues to get better and better. I feel better and better. This was my goal. I'm stronger mentally and physically and my health has never been better.

I'm putting my passion to work for you! If you're feeling the way I was, I can help! It's not an easy journey but it's all worth it. I can guarantee that!

  • What's the difference between low carb and Keto?

    Eating keto is a low carb diet but not the same as eating just a low carb diet. Eating ketogenic keeps your carbs low enough to achieve a state of nutritional ketosis, which is usually 20 to 50 grams of carbs per day. Low carb diets are typically 50 - 150 grams per day.  

  • How long does it take to get into Ketosis?

    Reaching Ketosis can take anywhere from 5 days up to 2 weeks. Everyone is different.  

  • What are macros?

    Macronutrients (macros) are molecules that our bodies use to create energy for themselves - primarily fat, protein and carbs. It is important to pay attention to these when you begin eating ketogenic.

  • Do I have to give up fruit and bread?

    Absolutely not! There are fruits that are better for you than others but there is nothing truly off limits as you get deeper into ketosis. As for bread, I eat it all! It's Keto friendly bread but tastes great! You won't feel deprived. You will only feel BETTER!

  • What is the Keto flu?

    Oh dear Lawd! Yes, it's a real thing and yes, I got it. As your body changes over from glucose burning to fat burning, which is A LOT of work on your body, some people get what is called the Keto flu. It feels just like the flu (body aches, headaches, tired, etc) and lasts a few days. Hang in there, it will pass.
