"I’m completely in love with this lifestyle. I feel such a sense of control over old junk food cravings, I don’t feel the need to snack, my energy, mood and focus are all very steady and even. I’m drinking a quarter of the caffeine I used to. I love the beautiful food I get to eat, in fact, I’ve been so happy with my Keto lifestyle that my girlfriend has decided she wants to jump on the train!! I’m feeling super empowered and grateful, so again, thank you all for being a part of this journey."
- Lou H.

Everything in this program is about learning what is right for you. You will get to try a lot of different options and ways of moving, learning and eating. By the end of the year, you will know exactly what food or exercise does to you, what and how your body and blood react, and what to do if you get off track (there is always a formula that works for each individual that will motivate them to stay true to who they wish to be). We will help you find that formula. You will be testing your blood and ketone levels and with the help of our certified Nurse Practitioner, Jennifer, get to know how YOU work.

How the Program Works
Get cooking with over +300 plant-based ketogenic recipes and cooking classes. Find out what it's like to live in a healthy, vibrant body!
We've got a team of experts who are adept in all areas of wellness. Get the info on the most cutting-edge nutrition and diet information and personal lifestyle guidance from Elaina Love who has been practicing these methods for over 20 years. Learn all about which superfoods, herbs, and supplements will balance hormones, and truly nourish you! Learn about how to heal from auto-immune, replace chemical household products and body care products with home make or store bought natural products (chemicals have a lot to do with hormone imbalances) and how to concoct your own medicinal teas and smoothies from our herbal expert, Katelyn Louise. Our Registered Nurse on the team, Jennifer Ikemoto will teach you what is important to know about testing your blood for certain markers to make sure you are on track for a long and healthy life. She is here to guide and support you with any of your medical questions.
We know health and even weight loss has much more to do with overall lifestyle balance than just food. That's why half of our full year program is focused on everything that is involved to be your fully realized self and not just focusing on food. We will be going deep into our personal relationships with food and family/life dynamics to help you break through blocks and plateaus and reach your perfect body BALANCE.
You will get all of your materials well ahead of time (provided you register early) so you will have plenty of time to shop and prepare. Not much mental preparation is required since the meal plan is full of easy and delicious recipes and easy to follow. You will make blended low carb smoothies, soups, nut milk, energy bars, grain-free crackers and bread, delicious granolas, delicious entrees such as noodle dishes, curries, stews, pizzas and vegan cheese, all free from gluten, dairy, and processed ingredients. Desserts will include delightfully simple chocolates, shakes, puddings, cookies, brownies and more. Everything can be made at home from scratch. Plus, if you don’t feel you will have time to make everything at home, we have included shortcuts and a list of pre-made, store-bought products (such as crackers, granolas, and other goodies) that are almost as good as making it from scratch.
Each monthly recipe book is delivered straight to your email, and includes absolutely everything you need—from what to shop for, how to prepare meals and how to stay on track, motivated, and moving forward, no matter how busy you are! Need more help with food prep? Our prep coach, Ali Stringer, will be meeting with you once a month to help you with strategies to plan your meals ahead of time.
Curious to try keto but can’t tolerate dairy or eggs? So many recipes in the keto world are surrounded around cheese this, cheese that, casseroles, quiches, fried bacon and eggs... it seems impossible for all of us not interested in those food choices.
Elaina created this program based on recipes she used to shed weight, get rid of night sweats, and balance her hormones and now you can enjoy them too! Plus, every recipe is keto approved, complete with carb, protein, and fat macros calculated for you so you can take the guesswork out of tracking. We pride ourselves on the variety of recipes we bring to a plant-based ketogenic lifestyle.
We all get off track, even me! Where are you getting off track and why? What keeps you from reaching your highest energetic self? From the very beginning of the program, you will receive a self-evaluation and goal sheet that you will fill out each week. At the end of each month, you will get a personal video chat with Elaina, Kate, Jennifer or Ali to assess your goals and target any problem areas or places in your life that we need to give more attention. We will also have group coaching call once a week (with one week off each month). These calls are discussions based on the group needs, questions, and topics that will progress and get more profound as the months go on. For example, we start with basic nutrition concepts, daily practices, and build on our goals and new skills.
Each person has their problem areas and weaknesses they can improve on. Whether you are a night eater or have a hard time with social pressures (eating out, parties, social gatherings, etc.), we will teach you our tried and true tools to change your habits and replace them with new, easy to stick with ones.
Learn how to do 1-day intermittent fasts (gradually) and experience the benefits so many of our clients have had. Did you know that fasting on green juice for 24 hours (or less than 500 calories) will lower your IGF1 factor? This Human Growth Hormone is necessary during our formative years, however, as we age, an excess of it can contribute to cancer, premature aging, and diabetes. When we give the body a break once a week, we reduce our IGF1 and thereby disease-related illness. We incorporated a fasting day every Sunday for the year to be an optional Intermittent fasting day. We recommend drinking up to 1 gallon of green juice (no fruit, carrot or beet juice) on Sundays. Green juice will give you plenty of minerals and ease the hunger pains, without loading you up on fat, carbs, salt or protein. Most people report increased levels of energy on their fasting day.
"I dry fasted for 38 hours. I felt I could have carried on. I’ve been watching your videos and I totally get now why you love it so much! It really is so much easier. My focus was amazing and I was really motivated all day and got so much done. I will absolutely do it again, in fact I’d much rather dry fast than drink water which is what I usually choose to do. I expected to have cravings but I had no thoughts about it at all. It really was a breeze! Let’s see how I go next time!" Michelina
This is also a lifestyle chef training where you will learn hundreds of new and exciting low carb, plant-focused recipes.

"I think the program works like an adaptogen for each of us. We get out of it what we need, since we are all coming from different places in our own health. I'm sleeping more deeply and for longer periods and it's wonderful. I feel lighter. I'm also eating lots less; deciding to honor my intuition and not over do it. My struggle would normally be in the late evening, but I've really been trying to get in touch with why I would previously want to eat late - and then I don't do it at all. Super excited for all of the positive changes that each one of us is experiencing."
"May many blessings come your way. A huge hug for everyone and everything you have introduced to us. I have no clue where’d I be if it wasn’t you and your team. You have also blessed me with a beautiful mentor"
- Keli A.
"I love these Keto rolls and they are a life saver as a go to cracker of bread substitute. Mine turned out great! Flavor is really good. I spread one with the Brazil Nut Parmesan in our recipes and it was amazing!"
"This TRIBE makes a BIG differnce in staying with this deep learning!!! Thank you!"
- Lori H.
"Breakfast Toast for lunch. PJ Signature Flat Bread fried in coconut oil. Spread with a raw garlic mustard, topped with arugula, avocado and Himalayan salt and pepper.Delicious! :-) Have never cooked arugula before have always had it as a salad so that was interesting."
- Michelle Baker
"Thank you all for your inspiration and support on another wonderful lovecamp. Let's keep going! I love the coaching sessions even though I’m on a different time zone it makes me feel closer to everyone taking part and also love the support we get and topics covered also enjoy the guided meditations which help me sleep and night and wake up ‘in tune.’
The Facebook page is also great as we all connect with each other in real time and can keep inspiring each other to carry on.
As for the recipes, there’s so much choice and I’ve enjoyed every single one. There’s really no excuse to get bored! Plus I’m feeling great!
I’ve had an amazing year since finding you guys, retuning my health, working on my Certifications and looking forward to more."
"I managed to fast until 12pm (which is an accomplishment for me - I'm always thinking of food/snacking and have something to eat/drink as I wake up). To distract myself I went for a jog and took my time getting ready before making a new batch of flat bread 🍞. Broke my fast with a green celery juice which was actually super filling and leftover mushroom soup and a small serving of the pumpkin & kale bake - I'm stuffed! Small achievement but it's energizing and encouraging. I'll try to do this again and be more mindful about my attitude to eating... "
- Susanna Muir, United Kingdom
"Ive been a vegan for over 30 years but wanted to take my health to the next level. So I joined these Love Camps and best decision ever! I can work at my own pace and have the support from the Team and group. The recipes are high vibe, and a mixture of raw and cooked, full of superfoods, and delicious. I love the options to make the meals more Keto friendly. I also joined the Online Level One Certification program which I work on at my own pace. This really suits my lifestyle. We not only get great recipes but education on so many other health topics. Elaine, Katelyn, and Ali keep up on all the up to date health research and i always feel well informed by their wealth of knowledge."
