Lately, I have been experimenting with a Targeted Keto Diet (TKD) and a strength training routine to undo a lot of the damage sitting/driving has done as we concluded a year long multiple cross-country RV road trip. Long story short I have suffered from pretty intense low back pain for years and someone recently mentioned I may have anterior pelvic tilt (APT), so I began looking into it and after performing a self-test at home and speaking with a trainer…yep, that explains the pain.
Adding in collagen and a quality protein source is key when trying to alleviatel any joint abnormality. It’s not the fix, but it is a tool you can use among others to facilitate healing. Biochem’s Whey Protein Isolate + Joint combines Type I & III collagen, and Type II collagen from clinically studied UC-II cartilage to support join comfort, flexibility and mobility.
It’s also important to me for my protein to be sourced from high quality protein and Biochem fits that bill being sourced from grass-fed cows, they’re also non-GMO!
Anyways, back to the TKD which calls for eating a few more carbs than the standard keto diet, but limiting carb intake to shortly before, during, and immediately after a workout. Hopefully, with the combination of yoga, weight training, and being more aware of my posture this APT will be corrected asap.
If you are following a TKD or just want to add a little more protein to your diet via baked goods these scones are perfect. I personally loved the strawberries in this recipe, they added a depth of flavor that I wasn’t really expecting. Plus strawberries, like all berries, are fairly low on the glycemic index and are great fast absorbing carbs to fuel your workouts.
