MasterClass: Beyond Lipedema Program

Because You Are Unique

I started Keto on June 22, 2019 because the pain in my legs was unbearable. Extra strength Tylenol was not touching it at all. For the last three days, my level of pain has dropped from 9 to a 1 or less. The Keto for Lipedema summit has given me hope.” -Theresa D, TX, USA

Living Well With Lipedema
Bio-individuality: Designed for YOU - Because You Are Unique

Lipedema - The Disease They Call FAT  is a fat disorder that affects women and is often mistaken for simple obesity. Generally under-recognized and misdiagnosed, symptoms include pain, swelling and weight gain that is resistant to diet and exercise. Lipedema progresses and without intervention worsens over time.

One complication that emerges with lipedema can be osteoarthritis and limited mobility. A Keto Way of Eating has been successful for many lipedema ladies for weight loss, swelling & pain reduction, and overall increased well-being and support for regaining or maintaining mobility. 

No two lipedema ladies are the same, we are each unique. Bio-hacking keto to your situation can make all the difference.

  • How to bio-hack keto so it works for you
  • About electrolytes and maintaining balance
  • Therapuetic approaches for mobility and pain issues
  • Intermittent and Extended fasting - when and how long
  • How to take keto with you, traveling or eating out
  • Luxurious and delicious keto - YES and it works to lose weight
  • Navigate the holiday season gracefully and with clear choices
  • Bio-individuality - we are all different - customize keto for YOU!

Our faculty and coaches can help you in understanding about body types, insulin resistance, intermittent fasting and much more to know what might be going on and what to do about it!

"Acceptance... It seems like an ordinary word. I was in the MasterClass Program before the holiday class, and I have grown in ways I never expected. I would always pick apart myself physically, emotionally and spiritually. I was never “ perfect”. I was always searching for a way to get perfect. Maybe, perfect isn’t the right word. I fought myself at every turn. I was always looking for a way into the door of the perfect life.

The happy go lucky life that is splattered all over the different medias. I took a painting class not too long ago and the instructor said something that shifted my thoughts. Someone in the group said they didn’t like their painting. The instructor said let it dry and start again. I kept thinking about that and the mini class was and is my way of a start again. I don’t have to keep forcing myself into the “perfect” box. I am a kaleidoscope of brilliant and magical moments that no one else can be because I am the only one to be living it. How cool is that." ~ Theresa D., TX, USA
