How to lose weight on a
high-fat low-carb diet,
WITH carbs!!


Last week, the U.S. News & World Report published their 2018 list of best diets, placing the high-fat low carb ketogenic diet last. How could this be? I lost four pounds that same week on ‘keto’, and it’s wildly popular with the likes of Kim Kardashian, Gwyneth Paltrow and LeBron James.

The judge’s stance: ketogenic diets are highly restrictive, which they are. Could you live off 5% carbohydrates, 10% protein and 85% fat? Turns out, you may not need to. Mark Sisson, author of The Keto Reset Diet says it’s possible to have your cake and be keto too.READ MORE

Pumpkin Sheet Cake


The holidays are here, and it’s time to have your full fat, carb-loaded cake, and eat it too. Did you know that gluten + carbs + fat = happiness (in some worlds).  So instead of guilt, feel joy. Instead of deprivation, enjoy your food – tis the season!

My pumpkin sheet cake will not only please your taste buds, but I challenge you to stick to one slice – it’s impossible :-). As a side note, I gave this to the trainers at my gym (irony) and one of them (who barely says a word btw), told me he couldn’t get over it. Then he asked me if I’m a professional baker………  LOL.   READ MORE
