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.

Lo Carb Diet and Cheesy Biscuit copycats

Cheese Biscuits like Red Lobster's

So I didn't want to do it, that Lo Carb diet.  Now truth be told I'd been having hot red burning feet at night for awhile and knew what it meant. It usually means too much sugar in the blood. And I knew what I had to do. Also my stomach was puffing way out and was very uncomfortable. And I have high triglycerides and I felt like a big mess. 

But while looking at Facebook the other day I ran into a recipe for those Cheese Biscuits like they have at Red Lobster. 

You heard of the man that died because he ate 420 of these awesome biscuits. They are really good but not that good. Goodness!

Back to my story. On Facebook I went to the page of the girl with the recipe and I found a video about how she has lost 108 pounds from eating low carb.  And she also shows the most gorgeous recipes that are way over the top full of carbs for picnics and church socials. She's a very smart marketer because she sells weight loss pills too and has over 1,350,000 followers! 

Anyway back to her lo carb video's:

Shopping for Low Carb #2. Love the simplicity of it. This is the video that got me started. .

I love this frozen with 3 drops of doTerra lemon essential oil or lemon juice. Danny loves them with blueberries. A fun little one carb dessert.

I don't do Courtney's pills but I thank her for the big fat push that I need to get me back on the diet a doctor put me on when I was on my mission in Florida. And if you have trouble with diabetics this is for you also. 

How do I feel now after 5 days on the low carb? My feet don't burn anymore and my tummy is better and I don't feel like a mess anymore. :)

Now that I shared this awesomeness I can, 
Quilt On!
