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”

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.

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.

The Chips and Dips Cleanse “Plan”

I went off my M-F cleanse cycles and back to regular keto last week, meaning I added dairy, sweetener, nuts and alcohol back into my diet while staying under 22 net carbs. And I only lost 0.6 pounds… I really want to know which of those things are crippling my weight loss, and I alsoContinue reading “The Chips and Dips Cleanse “Plan””

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!”
