Keto Retreat to Italy Recap
I never thought I would be able to afford to travel. It was always a dream of mine so when an Italian woman named Giuliana asked me to be the keto host on trips to Italy, I thought I was dreaming!
Being able to teach and coach people while traveling the most beautiful places in the World is my absolute favorite thing to do! I usually miss my kids when I travel, but on Giuliana’s trips, I have so much fun and laugh so much with my new travel friends, I do not have time to even think about my boys! LOL
The reason I wanted to write this blog post about the past retreat was to make you feel comfortable to come on my next retreat. I wanted to show you how much fun it is to travel with like-minded people and to not be afraid to travel alone! MANY of the people, including myself come alone and we make friends for LIFE! I also love how many people have so much fun, they come on many of my retreats! Check out the YouTube video at the end to see some of our adventures in Italy!
And there is NO JUDGING on any of my retreats. Some people who come are not keto but they leave with the knowledge and inspiration to change. You will have the opportunity to eat completely keto or carnivore, they even made us keto desserts! BUT if you want to eat gelato or pasta, I promise, no one will judge. I will teach you and coach you so when you get home from the trip, you will have the tools to be successful on your keto lifestyle!
Craig came with me to Italy before my keto retreat started and here is a clip of us doing our live weekly coaching with clients from our hotel in Sicily (which was the hotel featured in the White Lotus season 2). Click HERE to join my weekly coaching meetings!
Day 1 & 2: Keto Retreat to Italy
Last night we all arrived in Milan and went to the most amazing restaurant for our arrival dinner. The meal was delicious! It started with a platter of prosciutto, meats, Burrata and cheeses. The main was a grilled steak with salad. Dessert was berries but I asked for more Burrata instead
In the morning, I ran around the streets of Milan. We had breakfast at the hotel which had a harp player every morning. Then we got onto a nice minibus to drive to Lake Como. We saw George Clooney’s villa! The person who owned the villa before George was Mr. Heinz (yes, the king of ketchup) We hopped onto a boat and went to the town of Bellagio (which mean beautiful lake).
Day 3: Keto Retreat in Italy
Day 3 in Italy started with an early morning run through Milan. After my run we enjoyed a beautiful breakfast at the hotel where there was a harp player every morning.
Day 4: Keto Retreat in Italy
We all had an AMAZING lunch overlooking the sea. So delicious! Then we had time to shop around for a little while until we made our way back to the hotel.

Day 8: Keto Retreat in Italy
For day 8 of my keto retreat in Italy, I started my day with a longer run since we didn’t have to meet until 9:45am. After breakfast (which was on the roof of our hotel and was STUNNING!) we went on a walking tour of the Spanish Steps, Trevi Fountain, Pantheon, St Peters Cathedral and other special areas of Rome.
We visited the first coffee shop ever! We also threw coins into the Trevi Fountain for good luck!
After our walking tour, we all went to lunch. Yesterday I found a place that makes grilled scormoza which reminded me of a keto pizza! So today everyone wanted to try it. They all loved it! Even the non-keto people who joined the trip!
When we were done eating, we walked around Rome, shopping and enjoying the sights.
UPCOMING KETO RETREATS
My next Keto Retreat is to Costa Rica January 2024! The coolest part is that everyone who signed up to go is a REPEAT CUSTOMER! That speaks volumes on how much fun everyone has on my retreats!
