Health-minded entrepreneur Eric Bland founded EarnLiveGreen, an online business and wellness community, with a goal of helping people embrace holistic nutrition to change their lives. He offers natural hemp foods and marine phytoplankton, which he refers to as “one of the oldest and most natural foods, coming from the ocean” that can regenerate cells and support liver health. In addition to those products, Bland has added the Ketopia fat-burning plan to his growing assortment of offerings.

Ketopia, a product launched this past July, is based on the ketogeneic diet, a high-fat, adequate-protein, low-carbohydrate diet designed to maximize the body’s fat-burning potential. The diet has become popular with some professional athletes. “Everybody from birth has ketones,” explains Bland. “When you’re a child, you have these ketones, but as you get older, they disappear. It’s almost impossible to get to a fat-burning state in your 30s, 40s and 50s. Ketopia puts you into a state of nutritional ketosis, or a fat-burning state.”

Beginners start with the 10-day Ketopia Reset Challenge, designed to reset the body’s ketosis to once again burn fat. The KetonX drink powder is a blend of multiple raw, natural ingredients which comes in orange or raspberry flavors and is mixed with water. “It helps control cravings by using ketones instead of glucose from carbs to help increase energy and burn fat,” Bland says. “The product is aimed at weight loss, but it also edifies the body’s natural intelligence with the raw materials included in the Ketopia system—optimizing overall health.”

The Dough Bites, which have the taste and texture of cookie dough, can be eaten as a mid-morning snack. The bites are high in fiber and probiotics, designed to boost energy and satisfy hunger cravings. Bland says that people who typically crave carbs will likely enjoy these, as they give the illusion of a carbohydrate.

Rounding out the plan are the FIXX meal replacement shakes, made from “cold-processed New Zealand whey protein from clean pasture-raised cows”, according to the product’s packaging. Thirty organic fruits and vegetables added to the shakes provide a blend of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and probiotics. The shakes can be made into creative drinks and smoothies by adding fruits or other ingredients.

The complete package includes the KetonX mixes, Dough Bites and FIXX meal replacement shakes, as well as ketone urine testing strips that show when the body is in a fat-burning state, so users can see the results. While on the plan, one also eats a daily meal of lean proteins such as eggs, chicken or fish, along with green, leafy vegetables.

Bland began offering the Ketopia plan along with his other products because he had used it and was impressed by the results. He also believes in Ron Williams’ (founder of ForeverGreen, the company that makes Ketopia) philosophy of eating clean and healthy while being environmentally conscious of what is consumed. “I want to help people return to nature, where we can all get our nutritional needs met organically,” he enthuses.
