Perfect Keto | Berry Method Keto

  • Do the best you can today, and then do that again tomorrow. – Grassfed/Grain-finished/hotdogs = better than chicken nuggets from McCrappy
  • -keto approved real ingredients snacks made either at home or in a package=better than a snickers bar or bag of chips
  • -cheap butter/grassfeed butter = better than country crock of crap
  • -cheap egg/pastrued eggs/cage free eggs = better than an egg mcmuffin
  • -chaffle/keto waffle/90 second bread = better than wheat bread-fat head pizza = better than dominos
  • HOW YOU EAT WILL CHANGE AS YOU CONTINUE WITH THIS WAY OF EATING. That is what BERRY METHOD KETO [ BMK ] means. The first step is to START, then sustain, then clean it up, and modify as your body needs. If you have chronic inflammation, metabolic disease, auto immune disease etc, eventually you will find that the cleaner you eat the better you feel. Some of you will go carnivore, some of you will not. It is NOT one size fits all as I have said about A MILLION TIMES. As long as you are getting the results you want, you are doing ok. We recommend ONLY eating things that are actually keto ingredients (no wheat, no grains, no seed oils NO SUGAR) and keeping TOTAL CARBS under 20. 1:1 fat to protein ration – bacon, eggs cooked in butter or lard, fatty brisket, fatty ribs, fatty steak etc. Quality Salt and plenty of electrolytes. You are the master of your ship. Do your own research on YOU. Most people will do best on meat heavy keto and animal fats.
  • People Keto Diffferntly : for example Ken eats Carnivore and no products. I eat meat heavy keto and occasional products (bc it doesn’t kill my keto – I have been very successful as many have while eating this way and using products to succeed.) I do feel much better when I don’t eat any sweets, for sure, but with breastfeeding I have had way more cravings than before. I am back to my pre-pregnancy weight and feel amazing 3 months out from delivery. Will I stop the use of products? Absolutely – I am in a transition period that hopefully will be over very soon.
  • YOU DO NOT NEED EXPENSIVE PRODUCTS to succeed, but some people may find them helpful during times of stress! Especially for those who may have a sweet tooth, these can be used as a tool to learn to not go back to the cookies cakes and candy of the SAD, they can have something that doesn’t wreck their progress. If you follow BMK (meaning you start to cut the sweeteners, nut flours, etc out of your keto) you will find that most of you will want these keto treats less and less because cleaning up your keto and especially carnivore helps kick cravings. There are many who have done this way of eating and have a Diet Coke everyday. Is that optimum, probably not but if they have perfect labs and have lost 100 lbs, I’m not going to say crap to that person. Knowledge is where it’s at. Know that products aren’t better than real Whole Foods, but they ARE better than the Standard Diet alternative to get you through the transitions of BMK. The dogma that has become attached to Keto is unsettling and will turn people who need keto away because of the absoluteness that people are throwing around. If you are new to this way of eating know that 99.9999% of people came to this way of eating gradually. Most started with Low Carb, dirty keto, lazy keto, and worked their way to an optimum Proper Human Diet way of eating. Fat bombs were used by most in the beginning and as each person becomes fat adapted, the need for those goes away. Keto coffee isn’t for everyone and it certainly isn’t a base component of this way of eating. Not everyone will be able to fast until they are well into their keto journey, but eventually most will be able to at least intermittent fast with ease. IT IS A PROCESS.

The point is, humans aren’t perfect and to expect that from yourself or a stranger you don’t know is a recipe for disaster, or even an excuse to quit. Just because I don’t believe in crappy products being necessary to do this way of eating, doesn’t mean that I don’t think there is a place for them in the transition from SAD to BMK or just Keto or even carnivore.

Stop the dogma.

STOP acting perfect.

Start sharing your success story.

Enjoy your health that will come to you along the way.

    I will never be perfect, and I don’t want to be. I like Dr. Fungs attitude. He also promotes clean, but he does say life should not be avoided forever. If you have a bowl of ice cream at a Birthday Party it is life use clean eating and fasting, and you should be able to control. Doing treats everyday may not work for most of us, but then if you can control it more power to you!! I will also never be able to afford the best grain/fed, but if it is Walmart Hamburger fried up at home still better then fast food for every meal. Thanks Neisha!!!

      Thank you for your time that you give us and thank you for your wise words. We have to remember that this is a journey and there are lots of road maps and side streets, Stop lights and good weather and bad weather along the way. I am so glad to have you and your husband as guides on this trip

  • Deirdre Picchietti

    Great advise!! I love keto way of eating and am doing it for life. I enjoy following you & Dr. B

    ❀❀❀❀ I’ve been keto for about 2 years. Now transitioning into carnivore and still have a dirty keto treat occasionally πŸ€·β€β™€οΈ. Hopefully one day I’ll kick it completely but for now I’m not gonna beat myself up about it. I’m at my goal weight (125), and feel great!!! πŸ˜€πŸ˜œβ˜ΊοΈβ€

  • Maura Regan

    Thanks to you and Dr Berry I have been doing low carb since last summer. I would be sitting at the park with my boys, reading Lies My Doctor Told Me while drinking your ketorade!!! Reading that book, I saw nutrition and the entire healthcare system in a different way. And watching the videos lead me to a doctor that finally diagnosed me as hypothyroid and a carrier of MTHFR gene. My health has truly been transformed. Being a nurse myself and watching my father slowly die of type 2 diabetes complications I can’t deny the science that backs up carbohydrate consumption. My focus is to some how get involved with this movement. My time is coming to return to work after being at home with my boys. It’s amazing that when you fix your health you automatically want to spread this message. Thank you!

    Very well put ,Thanks Much….

  • Pam

    You are wise beyond your years! Great talk that I needed to hear!

  • Mellanie Eddy

    Great article and describes me to a T. I am a little below my goal weight, IF 16/20 and do not desire SAD. I do allow myself an occasional Atkins treat, Rebel ice cream and a rare glass of wine. I am happy, satisfied and love my bacon! My sciatic pain and knee issues did not go away like I had hoped so it is getting further investigation.

    Started on keto over 7 years ago, and knowing my addictive personality, I knew it would never work for me to go off plan occasionally. I knew I would not be able to get back on easily. So even though I’ve never eaten anything not keto in all these years, I certainly started out eating plenty of non-starchy veggies, nuts, nuts flours, and sweeteners. While using those things, weight loss was often slow, and stalls were long. As Dr. Berry transitioned to carnivore, I began cutting those things out of my life as well. I consider myself primarily carnivore for life now. I do include a little dairy, and an occasional avocado, because, well, AVOCADOβ£οΈπŸ˜‚ I am always appreciative of everything the two of you do to dispense as much healing information as you can. Thank you so much.

  • Pamela Townsend

    Awesome words! I fully agree; it’s a process and we learn as we go along. As a young 50+ female, I finally was able to heal of insulin resistance and finally start dropping the weight when I started IF. It is what worked for me and here I am, 40+ pounds lighter finally! I have always eaten LC but now more of Keto the Berry Method. I test what works for me and don’t expect everyone else to do it exactly like I do it. Thanks for all you do!

  • Dana Brown

    Getting restarted and reset, this is a great reminder. Do what you can and that fits in your life. Little by little is better than not doing anything.

  • Marla Hilliard

    Thank you thank you thank you for saying this. This. Is. Truth. πŸ’œ

  • Joan Thompson

    Thank you Neisha and Dr Berry for sharing your knowledge. I found you guys almost a year ago and my life/health has been transformed by the PHD/BMK. I started out with low carb, found you, and am now 95% carnivore. Feeling better at 65 than I did at 40😁😁 ThanksπŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’–

  • Kathy Barker

    Love the Berry Method. 10 years diabetic, 4 months on Keto, off diabetic and BP meds. Keto On!

  • Kathryn

    I began my keto journey two years ago! After finding out I have hashimotos I have slowly started to transition from β€œdirty” keto to clean keto this is my second week of carnivore !!! I’m beginning to feel better than ever. Thank you for your work an words of encouragement you are awesome !!!

  • Karen Jones

    I was doing well, then completely fell off the wagon beginning with Thanksgiving and continued through all the other holidays. πŸ™ Anyway, starting to get back in to it slowly and you’re right, it’s ok to ease in to it and not be perfect. I love that you and Dr. Berry do not judge and give kudos to someone when they are doing the best they can, even if it is still far from perfect. You and Dr. Berry are adorable and your knowledge and enthusiasm is greatly appreciated. Bless you both!

  • Rosa

    Thank you! You said it all with such clarity. πŸ˜‰β™₯οΈπŸ‘πŸΌ
