Breaking News: ABC Kitchen owner reported MIA, found in the middle of a “cleanse”

Sorry, everybody. I’ve meant to keep you updated on my progress, but have found myself surrounded by chips, dips, and more recently, eggs. I’m super excited to report that I, and three others, have recently completed the second trial of the Chips&Dips “cleanse,” and all of us lost weight! I lost 2.2 lb this time,Continue reading “Breaking News: ABC Kitchen owner reported MIA, found in the middle of a “cleanse””

The Results Are In: Call For Volunteer Dippers!

Last night, to celebrate the end of my chips and dips experiment, I may have gone a little overboard. We had chips and loaded pizza dip for dinner, with a side of buffalo cauliflower bites and a bucket of blue cheese. I can honestly say that I didn’t count how many chips I ate, butContinue reading “The Results Are In: Call For Volunteer Dippers!”

All dips are not created equal

I bet you think I’m going to rave about this awesome green chutney I made last night. I am not. I gained back 0.3 lb over the last 24 hours, and while that’s not enough to slow me down, the chutney definitely wasn’t worth a gain of any kind. I love Indian food – curry,Continue reading “All dips are not created equal”

Frosting is a dip

Instead of cooking, we ended up going out for wings, so I did not make my own blue cheese (which is delicious) or have any chips with dinner. After my lunch of leftover dips and chips, I still had over 20 chips left of my allotment when we got home last night. They couldn’t justContinue reading “Frosting is a dip”

I’m winning right now

No drumroll necessary – I’m down 1.6 lb this morning! I’m happy with a loss of 2 or more pounds each week, so almost being down 1.8 on Wednesday while eating chips and dip is just what I needed during a week of back-to-school-back-home-from-school-because-someone-got-carsick-on-the-bus-but-no-fever-so-maybe-they-can-come-back chaos. But I digress… For last night’s 7-layer taco dip, IContinue reading “I’m winning right now”

Day 2 – No pain, no gain

That is a picture of what we ate last night – as you can see, we are both a chip-loving and mixed-up football family. And not food photographers. While I didn’t eat my 32 remaining chips, I ate enough of them, loaded with crab rangoon, to feel very full. For those of you who askedContinue reading “Day 2 – No pain, no gain”

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 MondayContinue reading “Is It Time For Another Cleanse?”

Beef & Butter Results Are In!

I was so motivated by results on the Soup Cleanse two weeks ago, that after a weekend off (doing regular keto) I decided to try another 5-day cleanse, Beef and Butter. For 5 days, I once again grudgingly gave up sweeteners, nuts, dairy and alcohol (I had one drink Wednesday night with my hubby), thoughContinue reading “Beef & Butter Results Are In!”

How I (finally) broke through my keto weight loss stall…

Keto Soup Cleanse Results Are In! As a former carb addict, keto was at first very strange, and also a raging success as far as weight loss went. Following a 22 net carb daily limit, I dropped the first 60 pounds fairly quickly, and then settled into a comfortable but not very exciting 1-2 poundsContinue reading “How I (finally) broke through my keto weight loss stall…”
