Is It Time For Another Cleanse?

It’s been a little while since my last post, but that’s because I have been happily, and slightly manically, cooking in the kitchen for y’all! Since completing the Beef and Butter cleanse, I have settled into a happy routine of losing around 4 pounds each week, simply by eliminating nuts, dairy, sweeteners and alcohol Monday through Friday! I usually gain a pound back over the weekend when I go back to regular keto (under 22 net carbs for me), but 3 pounds down each week after such a long stall has completely reset my motivation. I’m feeling more energetic, still get to eat my favorite keto treats on the weekend and have even gotten used to black coffee 5 days a week, which if you know me at all, is miraculous on its own.

Chip sales have really taken off, especially since introducing the new flavors, which got me thinking – if each full bag of chips is 10.4 net carbs (4 servings of 2.6 each), and I made a few super low-carb dips, what would happen if I did a chips-and-dips cleanse Monday-Friday? I could eat one entire bag each day, and paired with the right dips still stay well under the 22 net carbs I aim for. I could still stay away from sweetener, alcohol and nuts but would obviously have to add dairy back for the dips. Wouldn’t it be fabulous if I could lose 3 more pounds next week living off of those amazing chips???

So, over the next couple of weeks I’m going to come up with a few delicious dip options and post them here, just in case you’re wanting to try the Chips and Dips “cleanse” with me. Then, I just have to make sure I save enough chips for myself to do it….
