Our Keto Transformation

We believe it didn’t happen in vain. What was meant to destroy us, is now being used to inspire. The health challenges we faced as a couple, have given us a platform that today shares hope.

The lessons we learned when we combined our Christian faith with a keto diet, not only changed our lives but it’s encouraging others to do the same.

This blog is started as an extension of a church community group. As ministers at Word of Faith Global Ministries, the church we attend, we are committed to teaching people how to become whole in spirit, mind, and body.

We do so by combining the truth found in God’s word with a ketogenic lifestyle. It’s what we did to get our health back and it’s why we are passionate about sharing our journey with others.

If the goal is to walk in divine health declaring God’s word is not enough. In order to see a true transformation, we must be willing to back up our confession of truth with real change. We can’t expect to live in optimal health and not do the challenging work of making a healthy diet a lifestyle.

The blog has given me a platform where I can share my low-carb keto recipes and lifestyle tips. Although I started creating these recipes as a necessity for Randy and me to stay compliant, today recipe development has become a passion. It thrills me to hear when one of my articles or recipes has helped someone adhere to the keto diet. 

 

My Keto Journey To Transformation

As a survivor of the Guillan Barre Syndrome, fibromyalgia, and chronic sciatica, today I live my life very intentionally.

At my worst, I relied on a walker and strong pain medications to barely function. Hope stepped in when my health was at its bleakest and God led me to a ketogenic plan while in a season of extended fasting.

You should know that it took me almost eight years to understand how being in a state of ketosis would be an important key to regaining my health. Once I understood the transformative power of ketones in our body, I combined it with my Christian faith and my body began to heal. Out of place a pain FITTOSERVE GROUP was birthed to help bring hope and inspiration to others.

Although I still struggle with the consequences of having battled Guillan Barre, I am in a much better place and with each passing day, I see my body getting stronger.

What started as a small gathering of women at our home, has grown into a beautiful ministry where we have the honor of sharing what we’ve learned with the community.

It was those first ladies that encouraged me to share my recipes and lifestyle tips, and it’s why today you can enjoy this Christian Keto blog. Had it not been for their insistence I would have never taken the leap of faith to start this blog.

Without a doubt, my husband Randy’s keto transformation has been nothing short of a miracle. He was able to lose over 80 pounds and no longer suffers from type 2 diabetes, hypertension, and fatty liver disease.

At his worst, he was on nine different medications trying to manage these diseases.

Randy would tell you that his moment of revelation came while he was quoting scriptures of healing, yet making no dietary changes to back up his confession.

It wasn’t until he was convicted by the Holy Spirit to put action to his Bible-quoting that his health began to finally transform.

Randy had nothing to lose and everything to gain when he chose to combine his faith and got rid of the sugar, gluten, and high carb foods in his diet.

It was this combination that set him free from the weight and food issues he struggled with most of his adult life.

Today, our transformation has encouraged thousands to do the same. It has been a humbling honor to assist people on their journey to being whole in spirit, mind, and body.

The decision we made in January 2014 of offering the keto lifestyle as a fast unto the Lord, has had a ripple effect that continues to grow today.

That one act of obedience was the catalyst to our change.

Community Group Ministers

As community group ministers we are committed not only to the spiritual growth of individuals but to the mental and physical wellbeing of those God has entrusted us with.

We realize that our ministry is not typical. Nonetheless, this out-of-the-box ministry has been a powerful blessing in the lives of many.

If there is one thing this girl has learned is that you can’t put God in a small box of fixed preconceived ideas.

Combining our faith with the keto diet and offering our support has expanded our reach because we use this blog as a platform to reach places we would have otherwise never been able to go.

Today, we don’t just minister to those who faithfully attend the local Fittoserve Group, but also those who are part of our readership, Fittoserve Facebook Group, and follow our Facebook Page. As well as the beautiful engaging Instagram community.

In what we never could have imagined, God has allowed us to minister to people all around the world using our Christian Keto blog.  On any given day we are connecting with people who reach out to us from the blog via email for guidance.

Why We Combine Keto With Our Christian Faith

We make no apologies for our Christian faith because it takes center stage in our lives. Without Christ Randy and I would not be who were are today. Nor would have or marriage passed the test of time with over 35 years under our belts.

We can’t separate our faith from what we do or who we are.

People are choosing to come to us not only for the keto lifestyle advice we give, but to put their faith in Christ as their eternal hope. We may never know how many lives have been ministered to because of the decision to be bold with our faith.

The Need For Change

Sadly, for the most part, the body of Christ has not taken seriously the responsibility of taking care of the physical body. The deception in this area has been blinding. So much so, that many Christians have either given up on trying or feel it’s not necessary.

It’s my belief that the enemy of our souls has used this attitude as a breach to attack the health and wellbeing of what should be a people walking in divine health.

Can I tell you that you will never be able to serve God to the fullest if your body is not functioning optimally? It is simply impossible to do all He created you to be with such hindrances.

Why does it surprise us that we need to do a better job of taking care of our bodies? Isn’t it the very place that God has chosen to deposit his Holy Spirit when we choose to make him our Lord and savior? Does He not call us His temple?

Isn’t it time the church rises up and takes what rightfully belongs to her, divine health?
I for one am tired of seeing the enemy attack the church in this area.

As far as I am concerned, the world should be storming the doors of our churches to find all the answers. And this includes how to take care of our physical well-being.

Why So Passionate About Keto And Jesus?

My passion comes from a place of having been in the grips of the enemy’s deception in this area. For years I was focusing on my spiritual health yet ignoring my physical well-being. I had no clue that my dietary choices were the root cause of my poor health.

It’s why when my body finally fell apart I was completely blindsided by the attack and therefore ill-prepared to fight the necessary battle. I was at death’s door and didn’t realize how I ended up in this scenario. I blamed the devil for it all and was oblivious to my role.

It’s my heart that you avoid the need to completely rebuild your temple because your body just gives up. That instead you heed the warning before it becomes much more of a challenge.

Trust me when I tell you that it is much easier to maintain than to rebuild.

Please don’t make the same mistakes I made.

Lack Of Knowledge Is Destroying Many

Why are so many people suffering from poor health? Mostly, because like us we couldn’t find a sustainable solution that worked. With so many conflicting voices in the health community, it can be difficult to tune in to what our bodies are trying to tell us. Or to listen properly to the Holy Spirit’s promptings.

If you are looking for sustainable change get rid of the processed junk, and eat as close to how God intended.

But the question is how? We believe that combing the keto diet with the Christian faith has the potential to unlock the keys to finally being whole in spirit, mind, and body. Why? Because we learned this firsthand.

My people perish for lack of knowledge Hosea 4:6. This verse has served as a mandate and it’s what propels us to share what we have learned.

Randy and I are passionate about sharing what we’ve learned because we lived the devastating consequences that come when we live in a chronic state of illness.

Understand, that the long-term effects of our poor choices do not just affect the person ignoring the cues.  The truth is, it can impact the lives of all who are connected to you.

For this and so many other reasons, Randy and I endeavor to bring clarity to the issue of complete wellness using our personal stories of transformation. It’s our hope it will inspire others to live their very best life and avoid the pitfalls we encountered.

Michelle Gonzalez

Hey, I’m Michelle Gonzalez! I love food, hair, makeup, and pretty much anything creative. Growing up I never knew what I wanted to do when I was older. Some people might see that as a bad thing but I personally love it.

I have learned and mostly taught myself how to do a large variety of things. I can run a box office, manage your social media, dye your hair in five different colors and revamp your furniture. Or you know, help run the backend of this blog.

As you can see, I’m a lot like my mom. I like to wear many hats, although mine would probably be one of those goofy hats that are 2 feet tall.

I believe you should have fun with everything you do, or while getting down to business. It’s a delicate balance that often leaves the house covered in food coloring splatter or glitter that just keeps showing up in the most random places.

In closing, 

I want to thank you for visiting our blog. It’s my hope and prayer that you find value in the recipes and lifestyle tips I share with you. Please feel free to reach out to me with your questions and suggestions. We are here to encourage and support you in any way we can.

I love your Facebook page and enjoy seeing recipes when I can. But I am strict keto so a lot of the comments about having cheating days and using store bought breads with wheat an not reading the ingredient list because they don't think it's necessary is kind of confusing to say the least an I'm wondering if I should be on this site. I do enjoy your credit given to God for your wisdom and gratitude for the reason for this learning site however. So I'm wondering I guess if this site is geared more for low carb or if it embraces both ways of eating? And if I should just pass by remarks about cheating, and of course there is drinking alcohol which is not a strict keto because of slight insulin reactions or even chances of stalling. That combined with the fact that people should realize that now alcohol has a much bigger effect on their reactions, judgements etc. Besides I ,as a long time Christian do not believe in the practice of consuming alcohol. I am old but my biblical standards have not changed. What do you think.? Should I just stick to the STRICT KETO sites?

Hi Phyllus, Unfortunately, It would be impossible to sensor every comment to ensure it meets strict keto. We have all people on Facebook who are at different stages of both their Ketogenic and Christian walk and it's why you will see differing opinions. My prayer is to be a resource but an online group will never take the place of a personal interaction group. You may want to look for a church small group that is doing keto, we are hearing more of them. We won't take offense if you decide to leave our Private Facebook if it's not the right fit for you. Blessings to you and yours and may the Lord continue to lead you.

Blessings to you Hilda and Randy! Having been on the keto journey for over a year with great results-was diabetic with A1C rising fast to an 8 on the guidance charts after keto eating lowered it to a 5! Now within the normal range and holding! This is proof for me that it works! Also having fibromyalgia for several years the inflammation levels have dropped- I believe from the "no white flour or sugar" theory- those are inflammation foods I would also like to share with you both my fantastic journey to knowing Christ! Having been baptized in His name in 2001 has brought me a loving peace and guidance of His will. May the Lord continue to bring many blessings to you as you provide through Him the way of health and happiness! Glad I found you and my 2020 wish is that more people come to Christ. Take Care kathleen

Thank you for accepting me into this group. I was on the Keto diet a couple of years ago and felt great and then I had a double knee replacement (at the same time) in the hospital and rehab you have to follow their diet of lots of carbs (they think that helps you heal faster) LOL so I haven't been able to psyche myself into doing it again. I am hoping your facebook page will be my motivation to get started again. I am also 71yrs young so metabolism has really slowed down.
