Starting Lazy Keto for the First Time

Starting Lazy Keto for the First Time

I hate to admit it but I’m starting Lazy Keto as a last-ditch attempt to save my diet and stick to this type of strategy. I’m pretty down right now. I’m trying not to be, but I’m discouraged because I’ve had such great progress and for a while it was pretty great keeping ketosis going…then it all seems to have changed.

Keto Cheat Days Ruin Ketosis So Fast

Keto Cheat Days Ruin Ketosis So Fast

Okay, so I’m going to tackle the topic of keto cheat days this week.  I know this is a controversial topic, and I know that I am not a medical expert.  Please consider this an opinion piece based on my personal experience. 

What is Nutritional Psychology? Can It Help Weight Control?

What is Nutritional Psychology? Can It Help Weight Control?

Nutritional psychology is a subject I stumbled upon on social media – of all places – and that sent me into a massive online rabbit hole to better understand what it’s all about. Keeping in mind that even with all my best googling, I’m still eons from becoming an expert, I still thought this topic was fascinating enough that I wanted to share it. 

What Do Real Keto Diet Results Look Like?

What Do Real Keto Diet Results Look Like?

I’m still in early days when it comes to recording keto diet results.  Feels like I’ve been doing this for quite some time, but I’m still only several weeks in.  Still, I’d like to share what my progress looks like so far.

Finding Hidden Weight Loss Motivation Where I Least Expected It

Finding Hidden Weight Loss Motivation Where I Least Expected It

The days of finding weight loss motivation in bikinis or skinny jeans have loooong passed.  They used to drive me, but these days, I find that any help they give me is either short-lived or non-existent. In fact, over the last year, thinking about clothes that don’t fit has really only caused me stress. It hasn’t pushed me forward to do anything great for myself.

How to Eat Dandelions and Why Give Them a Try

How to Eat Dandelions and Why Give Them a Try

Finding out how to eat dandelions was never a thing I thought I would be investigating. They’re weeds, right? You pick them out of the lawn and hope they never come back (even though they always do). Springtime and later in the summer used to be a constant war between my mom and these little yellow flowers.

Is Stevia Healthy or Bad for You?

Is Stevia Healthy or Bad for You?

I’ve been bouncing back and forth about if stevia is healthy or not.  Based on what I see on my Facebook account, it is absolutely the best sugar substitute and absolutely not to be used…how’s that for solid information?

The Keto Diet Has Helped Me Stop Sugar Cravings

The Keto Diet Has Helped Me Stop Sugar Cravings

I never once in my life thought that I would be able to stop sugar cravings.  I have the biggest sweet tooth of anyone I know…except probably Holly. She really takes the cake (see what I did there). It was one of the things I was most hesitant about with starting my keto diet.

How to Know You’re Following the Wrong Diet for You

How to Know You’re Following the Wrong Diet for You

So, it’s my week to blog again and after Marley and I have both been struggling, I thought I’d talk about how to know if you’re following the wrong diet for you. After all, I’ve been testing out turmeric for weight loss (and I’ll get into that a bit in a minute) while Marley struggled a lot through her first week with the keto diet.

My First Week on a Keto Diet Plan

My First Week on a Keto Diet Plan

The keto diet plan is definitely more than I bargained for.  I give Holly credit for giving it a try, and I can see where there is a lot of room for error. I can also understand why she gave up. Am I going to give up? Not a chance!
