  • KETO Journey - My Conclusion

    I made it:) I was actually able to make it thru almost the entire month. I cut my adventure short by 4 days. Reason being: I was out of energy, the exact reason why I gave this much-loved diet a try. My cut and dry opinion of Keto: I think like any other diet out there it is not the way to go if ...

  • Vegetarian KETO Day 27

    No matter how good they make it look like, this Keto way of eating is pure discipline. Sure, you can eat that piece of apple pie. But it takes up lots of your carbs for the day. This is day 27 and I’m struggling. I want food, real food and lots of it☹️. My guess is that if someone is overweight b... View Post
  • KETO Journey - 8 Days to go :)

    Today I stuffed zucchini and portobello mushrooms with a mixture of spinach, ricotta and feta. Garnished them with tomatoes and topped it all with more cheese. I have to say I’d make that as a side dish anytime. That was tasty:). So, I’m 3 weeks in. Energy levels are up and seemingly increasing. ... View Post
  • Keto Food Pyramid

    The countdown is on. I got 9 days to go. I’m back to normal at the gym and had 2 great workouts over the weekend. I keep on sleeping like a baby which is unusual for me.

  • KETO Journey Day 18

    Yep, I made it almost thru day 18. I’m thinking the next few days will be a challenge. I got so tired of counting and adding carbs, fat and protein I basically stopped eating. I’m not hungry at all, so not eating is easy. However, without food I don’t have the energy at the gym I am looking for. ... View Post
  • KETO Journey Day 15

    Today marks half way of my Keto month. After an amazing workout Saturday, I skipped 2 workouts. I simply could not make the time. Tomorrow I will go back in the early am. Let’s see how it goes. I think I’m able to make it thru 2 more weeks..... because I know a huge plate of pasta like you see he... View Post
  • There is that energy!

    HELLO??!! As in Pulp Fiction’s scene where Mia finds Vincent’s stash....at some point today I realized that walking upstairs does not make my heart beat faster any longer. So, I went to the gym. My workout was rather fantastic😎. 2 hours passed in a blink of an eye and I feel totally rejuvenated. ... View Post
  • KETO Mac 'n Cheese Day 11

    I made Mac n cheese yesterday. It was good but did not resemble Mac’n cheese at all. It simply tastes like a cauliflower gratin. I’m hanging in there, waiting for the energy I’m used to have kick back in. I’m supposedly in Keto flu. Everything is fine but I decided to skip the gym til the weekend... View Post
