Ideal Low Carb Solutions

Wednesday, January 28th, 2015

In a perfect low carb world, we could all eat organic grass fed/finished beef/lamb, wild game, happy free roaming pigs and free range chickens and their organic eggs, sustainable mercury free fish, organic vegetables, organic fats and organic spices.

Cheat meals?

Thursday, January 22nd, 2015

The temptation…the cravings…perhaps even the emotional longing for a favorite food that is NOT low carb?? The hell you say?? What should I do??

Currently, I […]

It happens.  We’re all human.  And if you tried to stay on a low carb diet during the holidays (including New Year’s) but ended up eating your weight in candy canes, cookies and pecan pies, it’s ok.  Really, it’s ok.  You survived!!  Going forward, I’d recommend forgiving yourself, if need be, and moving on  We are all […]
