Looking to get started with a fasting regimen - not sure where to start? My advice is to stop snacking. Give your body as much time as possible between meals. If that's going well, maybe try skipping a meal. Feel free to post questions on this page.
Happy Anniversary to me!!!
Today is an exciting anniversary for me. One year ago I decided to change my life and stop dieting. I needed a full lifestyle overhaul. I started eating fat. St...opped eating sugar & carbs and eventually began intermittent fasting. No more counting of anything or over exercising. Today I am 95lbs lighter and doc says all my numbers are perfect. So grateful for so many changes since 1/30/17. Fast Forward
A great explanation of the science behind IF (intermittent fasting)
Just a bit of info on fasting as I've gotten a lot of questions about my fasting schedule lately. Fasting doesn't have to be a big thing. I choose to do a minimum of two 24hour fasts a week. Very often I fast more than that - but I'm a busy working mom and my schedule is not consistent, so I stick with a minimum of 2 24's. However, shorter fasts can be successful too. The goal is to give yourself a break from food to let your body process the food you've given it, and burn through reserves. 12, 16, 18 hour fasts are great too. Your body needs a break to let it burn food.
This is quite possibly the best thing I've ever cooked. Cauliflower, pulled chicken, cream cheese, homemade ranch, green onions, topped with cheddar and gouda. I will make this again and again adding new ingredients like maybe spinach and onion next time.
This is my NYE app and honestly a little boring so I probably won't make it again. But it's Keto and packed full of veggies & fat. Recipe here:https://tasty.co/recipe/herb-ricotta-broccoli-parmesan-cups
Just made my take on this fantastic dish from Keto Conscious. I subbed bacon for ham. Next time will throw in more veggies. Super kid-friendly! Pic in comments.
Keto Quiche!!! NOM! Packed full of fat and protein, this is an easy one to make and enjoy for a few days (if you can stop yourself from eating it all at once!...).
I didnt have the proper size pan available so this is thinner than it normally would be (in the photo) but it didnt change how delicious it is!
1 small onion chopped (optional)
1/2 lb cooked and chopped ham
1/4t ancho powder
1/8t garlic powder
1/2c heavy whipping cream
1 1/2c shredded cheese (sharp cheddar is my choice)
beat egg, whipping cream and spices together
add ham, onion, and cheese and mix well with fork
pour into a greased/sprayed pie or baking pan
Cook on 350 until eggs are set (fork test...stick tongs of your fork into the middle, if its clean..youre done, if slimy eggs are still on it...it needs longer) aprox 30 minutes.
You'll be amazed how heavy it is, that whipping cream is magical! I sectioned it out onto individual plates and wrapped them all so I can just grab one and throw it in the microwave when I need a quick bite. Next time, I am throwing some spinach in also!
I love pizza, it's truly the only thing I miss on my LCHF diet. Thank goodness my favorite pizza joint in Chicago will ship crustless pizzas. https://www.loumalnatis.com/…/crustless-not-your-average-de…
