Low Carb Keto Berry Cheese Pie

Low Carb Keto Berry Cream Cheese Pie

Lately, I’ve been craving pie. Specifically, I’ve been missing pie crust. I know there are some people who really don’t care for the crust on a pie, but I truly feel it’s the best part of pie.

Obviously, on a low carb keto diet regular pie crust is out of the question. Don’t even get me started on the side-effects that gluten has on our health.  So, what’s a girl to do? Well, create a deliciously simple low carb pie of course!

I have a large mulberry tree in my back yard that my mother-in-love planted years ago. She truly had a passion for gardening but her number one rule was that whatever she planted needed to be something we could consume. She was a very practical woman and although she now lives in heaven, I cherish her many words of wisdom and keep them close to my heart.

With that being said, my hubby didn’t inherit her gardening traits. LOL, I think he feels we have an obligation to feed the myriad of birds that visit our backyard with this ginormous mulberry tree; or maybe he just didn’t want to tackle trimming it back every year. Either way, when mulberry season comes this girl takes full advantage of free organic berries.

Not familiar with mulberries? Well mulberry trees grow throughout the eastern half of the United States and in many cases in the wild. The flavor tastes like a cross between blueberry and raspberries to me. They are also very high in vitamin C, 61% of the RDA as well as 23% of the RDA for iron! Not to mention the antioxidants and phytochemicals. That’s a lot of nutrition in a little serving of mulberries.

I wanted to create a pie that had a double crust because I wanted an excuse to enjoy as much crust as possible; just keeping it real folks! I decided that it would be nice to add a cream cheese layer to this pie, but not necessarily a cheesecake layer. Don’t get me wrong I love cheesecake, but I wanted the mulberries to play center stage.  Which is why I decided to just spread Neufchâtel cream cheese to the bottom layer of this pie.

Neufchâtel is a cream cheese that is a little sweeter than regular cream cheese and has less carbs; go figure. You can certainly just use regular cream cheese if you can’t readily find it. What’s more If you don’t’ have access to mulberries you can substitute with your favorite berry. Any berry would work with this simple yet delicious pie.

These mulberries do not need any real enhancement, which make for easy pie. If you follow my blog you will notice a running theme of simple recipes. I aim to create low carb keto recipes with easy to find ingredients and that don’t require endless steps.

Frankly, when I see a recipe that has lots of  difficult to acquire ingredients, or too many steps I just move on. One of the main reasons I began to create my own recipes, was because I knew there had to be an easier, less expensive way to convert high carb favorites into delicious low carb options.

Probably, what will take the most effort in this recipe is making the crust. This low carb nut-free crust is one that I use whenever I want to make pie and it’s been featured on the blog before. It has a perfect mouthfeel and tastes as close to real crust as you can get. It’s a delicate crust that needs a gentle touch when using.  However, don’t let that stress you because if a crack occurs all you have to do is simply pat the dough to smooth it out perfectly.

It’s my hope you would give this recipe a try and that it allows you to enjoy pie in a low carb keto diet.

Low Carb High Fiber Breakfast Muffins

low carb high fiber breakfast muffins

I may very well be the only girl who loved her bran muffins back in the 80’s but I not only loved them but ate them on a regular basis. I suspect it probably had something to do with the fact that they were quite sweet. Back in those days if it passed the “sweet” test, and had some healthy claim attached to them, this girl was all in.

Today, I won’t step anywhere near a bran muffin because of the wheat sensitivity I have. However, the idea of a muffin that is high in fiber for breakfast still really appeals to me.

Recently, I began to study more about the benefits of fiber and how it can fit nicely into a low carb ketogenic diet. Unfortunately, there is an abundance of information and opinions out there when it comes to fiber and a low carb diet. What’s more not all of the advice is sound. Frankly, I think some information can even prove to be disastrous to our health. With so many conflicting voices I try to limit where I learn to only a handful of reliable sources. One such resource is ketogenic.com. I highly recommend you give them a look.

Personally, I am not a fan of the zero carb diets that advocate no dietary fiber. It’s pretty common knowledge that for our gut health we need fiber. Do you know that 80 percent of your health stems from your gut? Which is why it’s often referred to as our second brain.

The past two decades have brought research pointing to the fact that gut health is critical to overall health, and that an unhealthy gut contributes to a wide range of diseases including diabetes, obesity, rheumatoid arthritis, autism spectrum disorder, depression and chronic fatigue syndrome.

Today, you have many researchers that believe that supporting intestinal health and restoring the gut barrier will be one of the most important goals of medicine in our 21st century. I hope this sheds some light as to why you want to ensure your gut is healthy and that you find ways to add more fiber to it.

Where fiber can prove to be tricky in a low carb keto plan, is that many foods high in fiber can also be high in carbs. However, this does not mean we should not include any fiber in our diet.

We can include plenty of healthy low carb fiber that is also low in carbs by consuming leafy green vegetables, nuts, seeds and small amounts of berries.

Fiber comes in two forms soluble and insoluble, with our bodies needing adequate amounts of both.

Benefits of Soluble and Insoluble Fiber

  1. Soluble fiber can keep our hearts healthy because it passes through the digestive tract attracting cholesterol. For people with high cholesterol, this is can prove to be very beneficial.
  2. Soluble fiber may act as a tool to prevent spikes in blood glucose and insulin. It makes sense to include fiber in your diet, especially if you are a diabetic. What’s more because your sugar levels are on an even keel, it may keep your hunger hormones also under control.
  3. Because soluble fiber absorbs water as it passes through the digestive tract, it can help prevent diarrhea and constipation.
  4. Insoluble fiber may aid in weight loss because it may increase satiety.
  5. Insoluble fiber may help with our digestive health because it passes through the digestive tract into the colon where it can feed the gut microbiome.
  6. Fiber is also considered a pre-biotic, which means fiber actually helps to feed the beneficial bacteria in our gut.

Now that I laid a little ground work as to why fiber is important to our health, let’s get into the fun part, my low carb high fiber muffin recipe.

This muffin is studded with plenty of nuts and seeds and therefore high in fiber and protein. It’s an easy and delicious way to add fiber to your diet. I hope you give it a try and let us know your thoughts.

Are you struggling to eat a low carb keto plan? Thankfully, there are ways to make the transition easier and the keto lifestyle doable. With the ability to now get ketones exogenously (we can now drink our ketones), and be in in a state of therapeutic ketosis. People are experiencing the power of ketones sometimes for the first time. Making our journey to share this conversation much more easier. The testimonials that are coming from the community because of this new technology have been very encouraging.

How To Manage Your Time Wisely With 3 Practical Tools

Pastor Yvette Gallinar's 3 tips to stay organized.

Meet Yvette Gallinar, one of my dearest friends and co-pastor of the church Randy and I have been attending and serving at for the past 12 years. The Gallinars have been part of our lives for close to 30 years since I had the honor of being the kindergarten teacher of their eldest daughter Christina.  Their love and support is a blessing to our entire family.

It was at Word of Faith Global Ministries that the ministry of Fittoserve Group was birthed. If  you find value in what we do, you can thank them for believing and allowing us to flourish with the vision the Lord entrusted us with. Today, pastor Yvette Gallinar is going to share her favorite tips she uses to manage her life. I encourage you to give her wise words attention.

Guest Post:

As a wife, mom, grandma, full-time pastor, employee of a non-profit ministry and entrepreneur, I think you would agree that I need to manage my time in the most effective way possible.

Managing your time will not always go as planned 100% of the time. However, it’s my desire that as I share with you what works for me on a pretty consistent basis, so that you too will begin to manage your day and not let your day manage you.

I suppose my brain is wired administratively so that might make it a bit easier for me to juggle three jobs and a home. This doesn’t mean that I don’t need all the help I can get, which is why employing these tips have been so beneficial.

I find that using a few basic tools helps me stay organized and focused. Today, I am going to share my three favorite ones and how I apply them.

  1. Reminders App from Apple helps you to easily keep track of all of your life’s to-dos and with iCloud, you can keep your reminders up to date across all of your devices. I love how I can set when and where I want to be reminded. NOTE: There are plenty of other good reminder apps for android phones too.

The Reminder App has become my best friend.  From reminders such as “pray for a specific request” to “write in my book“, or “stop by Publix and buy chicken“, (this one’s not often on the top of my list since I don’t like the kitchen much…LOL); however, this little simple app helps me get through my days.

As soon as I have a thought that requires my attention I reach for my reminder app and jot it down.  Frankly, this has saved me tons of time so that I don’t have to rack my brain trying to remember details.  It’s an incredibly convenient way to stay on top of your day.

  1. Franklin Covey Planner I love this planner and find that it suits me best. I especially like the month-at-a-glance feature.  It’s so much easier to plan when you’re looking at the entire month at once. As soon as something comes up; an event, speaking engagement, meeting or anything that requires my attention my calendar gets checked and I jot down as many details as possible.  I understand that most millennials prefer using gadgets, but I’m a little old school and like to also jot things down.

However, when I don’t have my agenda on hand, I reach for my phone and write it in my calendar app.  I take it further by then adding it to my reminder app so that I won’t forget to write it down on my planner.  The tips I am sharing with you I learned mostly from Lee Cockerell’s book, Time Management Magic.  I figured that if someone like Lee Cockrell can manage his time effectively using this method surely, I can too.

Lee Cockerell says he writes everything down on his planner; I mean everything!  From picking up his cleaners, to visiting cast members at Disney, where he was the Senior Operating Executive of Walt Disney World Resorts overseeing over 40,000 cast members!  So, if he has anything to say about time management, I make sure to take note.

  1. Keto//OS my focus in a cup. If there’s anything we all need more of these days is to be able to focus better on one task at a time.  Terri Savelle-Foy says; “with focus you can achieve anything, without it you can’t achieve anything.”  But how can we focus when our minds are always racing at a thousand miles an hour?

I don’t know about you, but this girl’s a multi-tasker! Is that even a word? Anyway, according to Dr. Caroline Leaf, it is actually impossible to multi-task effectively.  Dr. Caroline Leaf says that; “we don’t do multiple things at once; we actually shift between different tasks quickly. If we do this well then, we are doing busy well. But, if we are doing busy badly, we are doing what I call milkshake multitasking. We cause literal neuro-chemical chaos in our brain, which, in turn, causes literal brain damage.” Yikes!  Who wants brain damage?  I certainly don’t!

Because I’m faced with multiple projects during my day that require I be laser-focused, I need to make my health a priority. This is where my Keto//OS comes in.  I’ve been on a journey to eat healthy for over a year now and for the past seven months, I’ve been drinking ketones to help me.  Doing so has brought me countless benefits including endless energy, keeping my weight in check, and restful sleep.

When it comes to wanting focus, here’s where this amazing supplement has revolutionized my life! I especially depend on Keto//OS when I’m called to preach a Sunday morning message.  I drink my Keto//OS Max with 12 ounces of ice water and I’m ready to focus on my time of prayer, studying and writing out the message.  It just doesn’t get any better than this!  It’s my daily fuel that helps me get focused and energized, without it I wouldn’t be able to concentrate as effectively.

So, there it is, my three go to tools to keep my full life organized. Don’t let the cares of this world keep you frazzled. I encourage you to begin to organize your life with these practical tips and see if you don’t find that you can tackle your to-do lists effortlessly.  If you have any questions I would love to connect with you and assist you.

Best Low Carb Mexican Hot Chocolate Cookies

Yum

Low Carb Mexican Hot Chocolate CookiesHola amigos! Today, I thought I would share my Low Carb Mexican Hot Chocolate Cookies. If you enjoy chocolate and spices you’re going to love this cookie.  I had been toying with the idea of a low carb cookie that reminds us of Mexican hot chocolate. If you are not familiar with Mexican hot chocolate, the addition of cinnamon and cayenne pepper give a regular hot chocolate a major taste boost.

The funny thing is that here in Miami the weather is starting to get warmer and frankly hot chocolate is not on most of our minds. However, we can still enjoy this flavor profile in a delicious low carb keto friendly cookie. What’s neat about adding cinnamon and cayenne pepper to this cookie is that these two spices are known to raise your metabolism. If that’s not a reason to enjoy this cookie, I don’t know what is.

This recipe will produce a very rich chocolate cookie and you can add less spices or leave them out completely if you are not a fan of spicy foods.

Are you struggling to eat a low carb keto plan? Thankfully, there are ways to make the transition easier and the keto lifestyle doable. With the ability to now get ketones exogenously (we can now drink our ketones), and be in in a state of therapeutic ketosis. People are experiencing the power of ketones sometimes for the first time.

Easy Low Carb Keto Chili

Yum
easy keto chiliI’m not one to normally brag, but my chili recipe is a little famous around these parts. Well, at least with my family and friends that is. Yeah, that kind of sounded like a major brag. But here’s the thing, my chili recipe was often requested long before I ever became a food blogger.  It’s not only delicious but easily customizable.

Let’s be frank there are a lot of fantastic chili recipes out there. I believe mine became  popular because I didn’t skimp on the spices. I like my chili bold and chunky. If that’s not you, you can certainly reduce the spices.  I really thought I had posted this recipe up, so I apologize that I hadn’t.

My original recipe called for kidney beans and although I still add them on occasion, it raises the carb-load too high to make it to the blog. So, the beans have been left out of this low carb chili. I promise you, you won’t even miss the beans. If do decide to add them, one can of kidney beans rinsed, adds a tasty dimension.

My low carb chili was often served when the community group met at our home. It was a crowd pleaser and it didn’t break the bank either. To be honest, I really miss those days. I think the Fittoserve Group community probably misses those days too.

As a low carb food blogger, I love how taking the time to write down my recipes allows for a place for my family and friends to access my recipes. It’s my prayer that my children and future grand-babies will one day see that it was an act of love to blog and share our family favorites.

A great accompaniment to my low carb keto chili is my faux corn bread. If you haven’t tried this yet, you need to make this for your family too.

Low Carb High Fiber Cheesy Crackers

Yum
keto high fiber cheesy crackers

So, can I be frank with you? Getting enough fiber in a low carb keto diet can prove to be a bit challenging at times. Sure, there are supplements you can take to ensure your fiber levels are high enough, but why? If I’m given the option of taking a fiber supplement or a a tasty snack, what do you think I’m going to choose?

This foodie wanted to create a delicious low carb high fiber cracker. I know there are plenty of good recipes out there for low carb crackers, but I not only wanted a delicious cracker, I wanted it to meet my fiber needs too. Can I hear an amen from those who’ve been wanting the same thing?

I must admit that at times I crave regular wheat crackers but a high carb, gluten-loaded cracker is the last thing I need. Which is why I just let the craving pass and usually resort  to pork rinds when I want something crunchy. Don’t get me wrong pork rinds are great and all, but they offer no added fiber to my diet and doesn’t have the mouth-feel of cracker.

This low carb high fiber cheesy cracker hit the spot perfectly. It’s loaded with fiber since it has chia seeds, flax seeds, and psyllium powder. Is that enough fiber for ya? Well, it certainly was for our family.

Remember though, I was not only looking for a low carb cracker high in fiber, but one full of cheesy goodness flavor.  This little number tastes like a really cheesy Nabisco Triscuit Cracker. It really tasted like it was made with wheat, which made me feel like I was cheating. You know it’s a winner when a low carb keto recipe tastes like a major cheat.

I can’t wait for you to try. Let me know your thoughts and as usual if you find value in our recipes, sign up via email and never miss a post.  Please share with friends and family and encourage them that a diet low in carbs is not as challenging when you have delicious recipes that can assist. Here’s to making a high fiber recipe taste like an indulgence!

Low Carb High Fiber Cheesy Crackers

Ingredients

½ cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese

½ cup coconut flour

½ cup of finely ground parmesan cheese (what comes in a container)

½ cup of freshly ground parmesan cheese

2 teaspoons of psyllium powder

¼ cup of chia seeds

¼ cup of whole flax seeds

1 teaspoon of baking powder

1 teaspoon of onion powder

1 teaspoon of garlic powder

1 teaspoon of dried basil leaves

1 teaspoon of dried oregano leaves

½ teaspoon of sea-salt

¼ teaspoon of black pepper

¼ teaspoon of red pepper flakes

3 tablespoons of avocado oil or any other healthy oil of your choice

1 cup of water

1 whole egg

Instructions

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees

  1. In a large stand-up mixer add all the dry ingredients and stir until well combined.
  2. Add the water, oil and egg to the mixture and stir until a fully incorporated dough forms.
  3. Divide the dough in half and roll out the dough thinly between two sheets of parchment paper. The thinner you roll out the dough the crispier the crackers. NOTE: If you choose to not roll out to thinly, you get more of flatbread consistency. This is also a very good and delicious option.
  4. Remove the top layer of the parchment paper and either bake the whole flattened dough on a large cookie sheet with the bottom layer of parchment paper left in place. Bake in the oven for 3o minutes or until lightly brown around the edges or score the dough to create more uniform crackers. I went for a more organic shape and therefore baked the dough whole in two batches and then once the cooked dough was cool I broke the large cracker in my hands.

Low Carb Chocolate Sour Cream Cupcakes

Most people celebrate Resurrection Sunday on Easter. However, can I share a secret with you? The two are not the same thing. Easter is not a Biblical term, in fact it’s history comes from the celebration of an ancient fertility rite. Which is why you see bunnies and egg decorations in abundance during this holiday.

Whether it is called Easter or Resurrection Day is not as important to this girl as the event and purpose of the resurrection. Jesus’ death on the cross and resurrection are God’s provision for the perfect and final sacrifice for man’s sins. It’s the only payment God accepts for our sins.    I accepted Christ as my savior when I was twelve years old, and I haven’t looked back since. Without a doubt, it was the best decision I ever made.

Can I tell you that it really does not matter to me if you call it Easter or Resurrection Sunday? I know that may offend some people, but frankly I am not about to stop a child from collecting Easter eggs in the same way, I would never put a blockade on Santa Claus during Christmas. It’s up to us as adults to teach the children the true meaning of these Christian holidays.

What I think we can agree on, is that both Easter and Resurrection Sunday, offer no shortage of sweets. Whether it’s chocolate covered eggs or solid chocolate crosses. Sugar-laden foods seem to be in abundance. Even the traditional holiday ham is covered in drippy, sugary syrup.

As a Christian, I will personally celebrate Resurrection Day at church. I will make it a point to where a new outfit, traditions are important after all. Wink, wink. That being said, I don’t need any sugar treats to celebrate. If it’s ok with you all, I will share a lovely low carb chocolate cupcake recipe instead and encourage you to focus on the true meaning of this holiday as you take your little ones to egg hunts and church this weekend.

Are you struggling to eat a low carb keto plan? Thankfully, there are ways to make the transition easier and the keto lifestyle doable. With the ability to now get ketones exogenously (we can now drink our ketones), and be in in a state of therapeutic ketosis. People are experiencing the power of ketones sometimes for the first time. Making our journey to share this conversation much more easier. The testimonials that are coming from the community because of this new technology have been very encouraging.

Low Carb Triple Chocolate Crinkle Cookies

keto triple chocolate crinkle cookies

This cookie could have been called Low Carb Chocolate Overload, but is there such a thing as too much chocolate? Well, as long as it’s a healthy low carb option, I think you can’t go wrong with a little extra chocolate.

Can I tell you I know some who don’t like chocolate and Frankly, I am not sure if I can trust them. LOL, just kidding!  However, it is difficult for me to understand those who don’t love chocolate. I mean, it’s chocolate people! So if this is you, feel free to give this  recipe a pass. Just don’t forget to share with your chocolate loving friends!

You know what else is great about chocolate? It has a decent amount of magnesium. It’s a and essential mineral our bodies need. Chances are if you are craving chocolate your body may be asking for magnesium.

I chose to add three different types of chocolate because I wanted the combination to give me a richly flavored cookie. Plus it was a delicious way to take raise my magneisum levels. Although it’s a cookie it wants the consistency of a brownie with the bite of a cookie. Translation, it wants to be glorious.

Back in the day, I used to bake a carb-loaded version of this cookie for the youth group when my husband and I were youth pastors. When this cookie made an appearance, the youth would go wild. We nicknamed it Elly’s cookies because it was her favorite and she requested it often. I would always bake a large batch when we would take the youth on trips. Boy has this girl changed her ways!

Well, although the carb-loaded cookie was quite delicious, it needed a conversation in order to make it back into our lives.

It’s my hope you enjoy it in great health!

How Low-Carb Dieting Helped Me Get Over My Plateau and Lose 100 Lbs!

Peter Weintraub before and after picture

GUEST POST:

Today I’ve invited Peter Weibtraub a Permanent Weight Loss Specialist, to share his transformation story with our readers to help shed some light on how he lost 100 pounds permanently.

Hey – I’m Pete! I’m a Permanent Weight Loss Specialist, whose mission is to help as many people as I can to lose their unwanted weight, FOR GOOD, by making healthy, sustainable lifestyle changes.

This is not only my mission, but my PASSION.

Why? Because nearly 70% of the United States struggles with its weight. Over two-thirds of these folks are considered obese. To make matters worse, public incidences of Type-2 Diabetes, heart disease, various forms of cancer and even degenerative neurological conditions like Alzheimer’s have all gone up exponentially in the past 60 years due to the deterioration of the public health and fitness.

The answer(s) to your health and weight loss issues are so simple, and yet the government, the medical community and the major food industry makes it incredibly difficult for you to figure out for yourself. If you hear it from them, nutrition is all about calorie counting and portion control. It’s about lowering dietary fat and raising your carb intake. Fitness is about moving more, and getting 60 minutes (or more!) of physical activity in per day.

Now, I don’t know about you, but is any of this advice ACTUALLY healthy or sustainable? We’re going to break this down, and I’m going to do so by revealing some of my personal struggles on my weight loss journey.

At the ripe old age of 19, I had just begun my first semester of my sophomore year of college. I was 6’0, 215 lbs, and while I was technically about 30 lbs overweight, I had quite a bit of muscle on me. Unfortunately, my poor dietary habits finally caught up to me, my teenage metabolism left me, and I gained 70 lbs in just the first three months of my sophomore year.

That’s 7-0!

When I went home for Thanksgiving break, my family members and home friends all asked, ‘What the heck happened to you since summer?!’ I weighed in at 285 lbs, had gone up not one, not two, but SIX pant sizes, and was suddenly getting all this crap from my ‘support system.’ My buddies at school would make fun of me about my weight and my dating life quickly evaporated into thin air.

For the first time in my academic career, my grades dropped from the usual A’s and B’s to B’s and C’s, and my self-confidence was in the toilet for the first time since my childhood, where I also struggled with my weight due to (speak of the devil!) poor diet and inactivity. All of these occurrences made me want to change, and I began doing what I thought would work: To eat less, and exercise more.

Initially, these methods worked! Over the summer heading into my junior year, I lost 35 lbs, and was confident that by my second semester, I’d be back to where I was. Unfortunately, this began a nearly THREE year period where my weight loss stagnated, and I was stuck between 235-245 lbs.

After I graduated (about a year-and-a-half into this process), my days consisted of 5 AM wake-ups, a four hour commute to and from work, a two hour gym session until about 8:00 at night, and then a quick dinner, shower and attempts to sleep. Unfortunately, due to the physical activity, my body was wired! To make matters worse, due to the lack of satiating foods (AKA dietary fats) and my calorie restriction, I would often go to bed hungry, really pushing my discipline to not go down to the kitchen and demolish everything in the refrigerator.

After all that time, I nearly gave up, and almost accepted the notion that perhaps this is where I’m going to be forever. With the Dad-Bod craze starting to become a thing, I thought this is just what was in the cards for me going forward…

It was around this time that I was turned onto CrossFit, and more specifically, the Paleo diet. While I’m not a huge fan of CrossFit the fitness methodology anymore, I think the principles of Paleo are great, in that it preaches eating real, whole foods, over artificial, processed ones. By simply making these foods the crux of what I ate, my weight loss finally began to start up again, and I got back down to the 215 lbs I wanted within six months.

Of course, being the perfectionist I am, that wasn’t good enough! I wanted to be shredded – Single digit body fat, and to finally not have any trepidation taking my shirt off on the beach.

Low Carb High-Fat Diet Key

It was around this time that I got turned onto Dr. Stephen Phinney’s work on high-fat, low-carb dieting. I was amazed that many ultra-endurance athletes were switching from traditional carb-loading before races, to utilizing their fat stores as their primary energy source during races by eating a high-fat, ketogenic diet in the months leading up to it. Their performances were IMPROVING, and so did their overall health!

I began to follow this type of dieting, and after also cutting out some foods I found out I was allergic to (Bye bye, dairy!) I quickly lost another 30 lbs inside of three months without even trying. This wasn’t a bad thing, as I was tighter, more vascular than I’d ever been, and for the first time in my life, I HAD ABS!

Of course, because high-fat diets were considered dangerous to heart health, the small skeptic left inside of me went to get my bloods checked, and upon receiving the results, EVERYTHING was down! My blood pressure, which was borderline high prior to implementing this new method of nutrition, was now down to a ‘normal’ level! Everything looked good 🙂

I not only look better, but I FEEL better since beginning this method of eating! I have more sustained energy throughout the day, the chronic inflammation in my knees and my back went away inside of a couple of weeks, and my moods were much more elevated! My cognition as a whole improved – Instead of worrying about any problems that would arise like I used to, I’d be able to break the problem down, and create a(n) (often) successful strategy to overcome it.

High-fat, low-carb dieting is the ultimate dietary crux of what helped me lose 100 lbs! It’s the final phase of nutrition I teach my clients after they’ve focused on cutting out processed, sugary garbage, and it’s helped so many people the world over get both their bloods and their health in order.

Through these methods, I’ve helped Type-2 Diabetics REVERSE their condition, helped others to lower cholesterol and blood levels… You name it! From college students to busy parents to successful executives, and even United States Marines, it’s worked for various people of different genders, ages, races, etc.

If you’re on the fence about trying high-fat, low-carb dieting out, then you DEFINITELY have to take the plunge! Trust me – Once you start seeing the results in how you look and how you feel, you’ll never go back. 🙂

I Finally Figured Out What Works Long-term

After five years of plateaus, research and trial-and-error, I figured out what worked for me. The amazing thing is that it’s worked for many of my clients the world over, ranging from college students to busy moms to top-level executives, and even Marines!
