Easy Low Carb Diet Guide

Just made a sample Low Carb Diet Guide which can be found online here.  It’s the exact same plan I have used to lose 74 pounds in the last 7 months.  So clearly low carb works, hence the name of the site. For some people, it’s kind of confusing knowing what to eat and what […]

Blood Test Labs Update #3

So this year’s blood tests results again showed improvement in most areas. The one thing I was most concerned about was the hsCRP.  My last one was high (last year around this time).  I suspected an underlying infection (tooth, gum, etc.).  Just got retested this week finally. Now in ketosis for 4 of the last […]

My latest keto diet update

keto-shopping-list

So 6 years ago, I started eating ketogenic.  I had no clue what I was doing or getting myself into. Now 6 years later, I have learned some things about the low carb diet and changed some things accordingly. But my core motto has remained consistent.  “Protein, Veggies and Fat”.  That’s still my diet the […]

Cholesterol drops 40 points eating saturated fat??

How can this be? All the so called ‘experts’ (especially the vegetarian ones) will tell you that eating saturated fat will raise your cholesterol. That just didn’t happen in my case. And I have the blood tests to prove it. My total cholesterol is now below 200. I dropped it 40 points eating eggs, bacon, […]

Dairy Free Low Carb / Keto

For the past several months, I managed to eliminate dairy. Finally. And it’s had a PROFOUND impact on my life and well-being. My breathing is better, my sleep quality (due to better breathing) has improved and I’ve had no sinus infections at all since letting go of dairy. These were all significant personal issues. I […]

Tips for Surviving that first week of Low Carb / Ketosis

Bacon - Low Carb Snack

Yep, the first week of low carb sucks.  Just totally sucks. Making the switch from sugar burning mode to fat burning mode can be the hardest part of a ketogenic / low carb diet.  Many a person has dropped out of the pursuit of ketosis due to the first week challenges. Cravings, low energy, fatigue, […]

Good Video about Low Carb & Diabetes

Great video from Dr. Westman about treating patients with diabetes and his experiences as a medical doctor using nutrition and a low carb/ketogenic diet.

My latest dairy-free low carb snack

Celery_and_peanut_butter

This year, having finally given up on dairy (due to a chronic dairy allergy), I switched to eating a good, old fashioned, stand by – natural organic peanut butter, organic celery sticks and real salt. There are only 6 grams of carbs in 2 tablespoons of natural organic peanut butter.  But 2 grams of those […]

Morning Keto Rocket Tea

chai

So, what happens when you spend an evening scarfing down carbs like there’s no tomorrow? Well, if you WERE in ketosis, you probably won’t be in the morning.  Perhaps trace ketones, if you’re lucky, depending on how many carbs you devoured.  Which means you won’t be getting any of the benefits of ketosis, like appetite […]

My Latest Blood Lab Test Results Eating Ketogenic

My last blood tests were about 30 months ago.  And I have eaten a low carb, ketogenic diet on/off during that time frame.  Typically, 2 to 3 months on keto then a week or two or longer (sometimes a couple months even) off ketosis. And even sometimes eating whatever the hell I wanted.  But can’t recommend […]

My Current ‘Go-To’ Cooking Oils

Over the years, I’ve tried many different fats or oils for cooking.  Coconut oil, left over bacon fat, butter, ghee, grape seed oil, etc. But recently, I’ve cut it down to just 2 :  Extra Virgin Olive Oil and Canola Oil.  Both organic.  The canola oil is expeller pressed (machine or mechanically pressed – so […]

Fun, New Low Carb Items To Try This Week

coco-manna

This week, I bought some stuff I’ve never tried before.  And am looking forward to it. Coconut Manna by Nutiva – It’s kinda like a coconut butter, basically.  I think it’s just pulverized coconut meat.  Ran across it at the local health food co-op.  Planning on using a spoonful with some black chai tea and […]

The Quickest Cauliflower Rice I Know

Cauliflower

Cauliflower is a very user friendly low carb veggie.  And cauliflower rice  (small chopped pieces of cauliflower) is a staple in many low carb households, including mine. In the beginning we had tried hand chopping the cauliflower or using my little personal food processor (way too small).  I needed to use the full sized processor […]

Use it or Don’t Lose it

Excess sugar in the body will be converted to FAT (if you have enough insulin).  If you eat lots of sugar and carbohydrates and don’t use it, then your body stores it – as fat.  This is a biological process that is very purposeful.  It’s designed to store that potential energy for a rainy day or for times of […]

Step #1 – Get into ketosis

Ketosis is a natural biological state.  It’s what happens when humans stop eating a bunch of carbohydrates.  Eating less than 50 grams of carbohydrates per day will allow our bodies to start burning fat for fuel more optimally.  This takes about 2 to 3 days to start up and then can take up to 6 weeks […]

Mo’ Betta Mayo?

Mayonnaise…it’s basically just oil, egg yolks, vinegar/lemon juice and a dash of mustard and some salt. But oil is the real issue here. If you are actually looking at the ingredients on the back of commercial mayo’s, and making an effort to refine your dietary choices, then you’ll begin to notice that companies aren’t using […]

Hardee’s All Natural Grass Fed Burger?

Okay, I admit, I didn’t feel like cooking dinner tonight, so I got a low carb, grass fed burger from Hardee’s.  Low carb because they wrap it in lettuce and not a bun.  Total carbs = 9 grams.  Fiber = 2 grams.  Total NET carbs = 7 grams.  No fries and had some new organic Gunpowder Iced Green […]
