Carbohydrates are the body’s preferred fuel source.  Once you deplete glycogen (sugar) storage, the body will use fat for energy.  At this point the body is in fat-burn mode!  For more on ketosis, check out

Coconut Keto Protein Shake:

Makes 1 – 20 oz. Shake

2 Green Tea Bags

4 oz Water (boiling)

16 0z Water

1 Tbls Coconut Oil

1 Scoop Protein Powder (plain/vanilla)

Pinch Himalayan Sea Salt

1/8 tsp Stevia (optional)


  1. In a mug, brew green tea with 4 oz. boiling water.  Only brew green tea for 60-90 seconds, otherwise it will become bitter…if you want to brew it longer and you like bitterness you aren’t going to hurt my feelings 🙂
  2. Add the salt, stevia, and coconut oil.  Stir to combine/melt.
  3. In a 20+ oz protein shaker, add 16 oz. water and protein powder.
  4. Close lid. Shake. Enjoy

<Note: the coconut oil will eventually solidify, but it will be okay…actually it will be delicious>

Be well,
