Let’s check out a few of the ingredients:

If you ask, you shall receive. Well, this time anyway.
When I posted my recent comparison photos, quite a few people asked me what I eat. Fat. I eat lot of fat, silly people. But I guess that is not specific enough. I went back to basics and logged my food EVERYDAY for two entire weeks.

Ok, ok – alcohol can sometimes doom any diet, especially a ketogenic diet. There are some people who can get away with a drink or two and still live to keto on! Yet there are others who just want to throw their hands in the air like they just don’t care, all diets be damned! But only until they come crawling back on Monday with weekend regret and sore arms.

When you start to feel a scratch in your throat or a drip from your nose, it is time to heat up a good old fashioned Keto Cold Buster Tea. Ok, it is something I made up, so there is nothing old fashioned about it, but it works. That’s my point, it works!

Keto. Like it or not, keto is a four letter word. See k-e-t-o. Now that we had our morning math, we can move along. Like most four letter words, you can use the term keto when you are ecstatic as f#+& or when you are as angry as $&!+. Some people absolutely love keto and all of the awesome health benefits it provides. Others speak of it as yet another demon fad diet that is sure to end this new civilization that is drowning itself in coconut oil. Those people, I can assure you, either want to keep you sick in order to keep their pockets full, or they tried keto and did it wrong.

Pregnancy pounds – they suck. You know what is even suckier than sucky pregnancy pounds? The constant yo-yo dieting pounds already accumulated before the baby was even a tiny twinkle in your eye, but then you added the pregnancy pounds too. And I’m talking over twenty years of yo-yoing up, down, and that big old loop de loop really talented yo-yo magicians can do.

The worst day of my first pregnancy was by far the day I had to submit to the three hour gestational diabetes test. Don’t get me wrong, the one hour test – drinking that way too sugary drink and getting blood drawn – was not a party by any means, but the three hour test was awful. Making a hungry, pregnant lady fast for 12 plus hours, making her drink a disgusting, sugary glucose drink that hopefully no one ever drinks for breakfast, and then drawing blood four times over the next three hours while not being able to consume any food or beverages SUCKS! And that does not even add in the unbearable heartburn caused by the sugary drink. And, and the shaky, ravenous hunger felt throughout the fasting period. How is this test even legal to perform on a woman in her third trimester of pregnancy?

Every fall for as long as I could remember started out pretty much the same. My summer was filled with food and drinks and I was ready to do away with all of the junk I consumed to get healthy once and for all. Fall seemed to be the perfect time to start that process. Since there weren’t as many social outings, I could put down the alcohol and pick up the elliptical training once again. I also had many months before the next summer to slim down.
