Diet Fudge Recipe

I've been living the love of the Keto diet now for a couple of weeks and have a few updates for you. 

1. Eat what you like. You will be more apt to succeed if you do and I found if I ate my favorite Keno friendly veggies at night with lots of butter and salt and pepper I had a good nights sleep. For those of you that haven't had a good nights sleep being on keto then that might be your answer too. 

2.I have lost 5 pounds, yeah me but think I could do even better if I don't go hog wild on the protein. So I have reset my macros (see the My Fitness Pal App for your phone) to be 15% protein, 10% carbs and 75% fat which means all things naturally fat like butter, coconut oil, bacon grease and olive oil. No corn oil type stuff. Did you know that the turkey growers tried to fatten up there turkeys in the 1940's with margarine and killed them? The turkey's that is. So don't kill yourself with that stuff. Do what the pioneers did and eat the butter and the bacon and the bacon grease. 

3. If I'm not hungry I don't eat. That simple. My daddy always said we eat to keep from getting hungry not just because we're hungry. But I'll take that up with him at a later date. So in the morning I am not hungry for hours so I drink my keto lemonade which is a little lemon juice, Himalayan salt and water. If I get a little hungry I make a bullet hot cocoa which is fun with whip cream, butter, cocoa powder, sweetner like splenda or stevia (not sugar) hot water and whipped to a froth. 

I'm going to give you another fun fat bomb recipe. I also am going to make these for my hubby who is a diabetic for Fathers Day. 

  1. Melt cocoa butter in a small sauce pan in a bath of water. (I just use another slightly bigger sauce pan, half full with water)
  2. Add cocoa powder to the sauce pan.
  3. Now add the Swerve and mix well until all ingredients are well blended and melted.
  4. Add macadamias and stir in well.
  5. Add cream, mix well and bring back to temperature.
  6. Now pour in molds or paper candy cups.
  7. Let cool, then put in the fridge to harden.
  8. Keeps at room temperature, with a slightly softer consistency than chocolate.

Have fun trying some of these recipes and let me know how you are doing on your own keto diet. 

Love, Grammy T.

One Of The Bests Of Keto Dieting

One of the funnest and yummy recipes that have tried are the Cream Cheese Pancakes (Low Carb and Gluten Free)My hubby and I both loved them. We had them with bacon and sugar free maple syrup. He happens to be diabetic so these recipes are good for him too. You can find the recipe here

One of the best websites is on the All Sweetener List for well just what it says - sweeteners.  It has a huge list of what is good and what is not good. A must see.  

One of the best websites on Keto Dieting is by Martina All You need To Know About Carbs. Go see her there you will love her. She is blonde and cute and a major brainiac when it come the Keto Diet. She has an app that makes life a lot simpler and cookbooks too. Here is her KetoDiet Buddy - Easy Way to Calculate Your Macros on a Ketogenic Diet.

One of the best All around websites with recipes that are gluten free and low carb is right here at I Breathe I'm Hungry. Ok, so how can you go wrong when you look at all of that great food to eat? 

Happy Ketoing everyone.

Time For a Keto Diet

What have I been up to you ask. Well three or four things really. So I'll tell you all about them one at a time so as not to exhaust you. 

First off I am on a Keto Diet and I Love it!!! What is a the ketogenic diet? It is a high fat, moderate protein, low carb diet. It's a diet that causes ketones to be produced by the liver, shifting the body's metabolism away from glucose and towards fat utilization. It has been making my skin itch because of the liver thing but I can fix it quick by rinsing off in the shower. That works and I take milk thistle and dandelion root. And that is helping. I drink lot's of water like it is my job. I drink a hot drink called Pero with butter, coconut oil, heavy cream and no cal sweetner then whipped to a froth. Yumm and it makes me use the restroom regularly which is nice too.

What is a Ketosis Diet good for? It's good for high triglycerides, 
fatty liver and a myriad of other ailments. 

The first time I got acquainted with high protein low carb diets was when I was pregnant with my second baby. The doctor said I was on the verge of having toxemia and that unless I went on the high protein, low carb diet he gave me he was going to put me in the hospital. So I obeyed him and I lost 10 pounds in a week. I'm sure it was a lot of water but still it kept me out of the hospital and I did really good on it until I delivered my baby girl. The second time was when I was pregnant with my fifth baby, yes I have lots of kids. I needed to loose the water weight and keep myself from the hospital again so I went on a low carb high protein diet and did really good and again lost 10 pounds in a week. After that I ate lots of egg and cheese omelettes with hot sauce for my two other pregnancies. That kept me faraway from toxemia because we need the extra protein when we are pregnant. Just like my ewes needed extra protein when they were about to lamb.  

I always did love sweets and those are not good for me. I found a few websites with lots of help and recipes etc. One is "I Breathe I'm Hungry". Look at this lemon pie which fits into my diet regime!!  Click the picture to get the recipe and she has lot's more.  

Another site is: 
Keto Diet App. And she has these killer Keto Bounty Bars. Check them out. 

Oh how many calories a day? I like to eat 800-1200 a day. that's all I need but I'm never hungry with this Kenosis way of eating. 

Well I think that is good for today.
