From Carb Addiction to Freedom
The definition of addiction is “the state of being enslaved to a habit or practice or to something that is psychologically or physically habit-forming, such as narcotics according to Dictionary.com. That was life 8 weeks ago. My drug of choice was not a narcotic or alcohol.  My vice was food. Chewy, gooey, salty or sweet, a delicate treat or lots of carb with little meat. Food has been was my drug of choice for all of my adult years. It was my comfort and in some ways my friend when I didn’t feel like I had anywhere else to turn. more “Ketosis Brought Me From Carb Addiction To Freedom- You can do it too!”

Cloud bread is a great low-carb alternative to traditional bread.

Eating on cloud 9

One of the many things that most people worry about changing to a low-carb lifestyle is giving up bread. We have become a sandwich nation. Taco Bell ran a campaign for years saying think outside the bun, that was a clever way of saying everything else you eat at fast food restaurants has a bun on it, try something different. Well this bread recipe is gluten-free and carb free. It has 3 main ingredients and everything else is just flavoring. It is great for making sandwiches, in this photo, I have made sausage, egg, cheese cloud sandwich.

My first Bone Broth Brew made in a Crock Pot

Bone Broth

After 48 hours of waiting my bone broth was complete. Given I have never tasted someone else’s bone broth I am really wonder if this is what it is supposed to be. Well I know I did a few things wrong at the start of this process so that could have something to do with how it turned out. I don’t think it turned out “bad” I just was not sure what I should have got. more “My first Bone Broth Brew made in a Crock Pot”

A time to remember

Remember the time.

Standing at the stove as the sun light started to peek through the window shades this morning felt natural. I could remember the time my great-grandmother was standing at the stove in her kitchen in Tennessee. It was an ancient stove to today’s standards. It still used wood for fuel. But she treated it like it was most important thing in the house. I miss those summer days  being a little kid looking up to this, fish catching, shotgun shooting, pig slaughtering, snuff chewing, blue-eyed, dark-skinned woman named Joe. She talked with that Tennessee draw that always makes you feel at home. Every morning she was up before the sun getting breakfast for the family. more “A time to remember”

Making progress the low-carb way.

Making progress the Low Carb Way

Today I wore a size 17 1\2 dress shirt. This is huge deal to me. When I started in March I couldn’t button this shirt up. 2 weeks ago I could get it on but it was snug around the belly. So I didn’t wear it. Today I wore it with room to move. I love these kind of improvements. Scales be damned, lol.

People are asking me how I have lost 44 lbs. in 4 months, “It’s the sugar, stupid.” Now in the abstract that seems like an over simplification, but I am telling you, it is the whole story. As with all of my post now I have included in this one what I ate the day before. The thing you will find very little of is sugar. To me sugar is like kryptonite, it saps me of my strength and health. Over the last few months I have really started learning a lot about how the body works. I know enough to know that some simple truths.

Get rid of the damn scales

I am so tired of scales.

I bought one last year that was supposed to be super accurate, you know lasers and all. 3 months ago I realized that depending on where in the house I set the scale it would give me a different weight. Can you imagine weighing 200 in the kitchen but weighing 215 in the bathroom? This made no sense to me, how could I weigh more in one room then the other, up to 15 lbs. difference. more “Get rid of the damn scales”

The Big Fat Lie, Why We Get Fat

The Lie

What if I told you that you have been mislead for the last 45 years.  Maybe everyday of your life you have been told the “Big Fat Lie”. We have been told that we get fat because we are lazy and we eat too much while thin people have control and are active.  Our entire lives have been divided between people who are more active and eat less compared to the rest of us. We had been told that this was based in science. We were told that the U.S Government had done exhaustive studies and there was no debate. We had been told there was scientific definitive proof, that millions of people became super lazy and ate too much in less than 20 years, and it was all our fault. That was a “Big Fat Lie“. more “The Big Fat Lie, Why We Get Fat”
