Been working with a few clients lately (as guinea pigs!) to test a true ketogenic diet, which is at least 80% fat.
For some out there, it’s pretty easy to get your fats up to 65-70% – it’s that extra 10-15% that leaves them scratching their head.
If there is one thing I can do, and do well, is to manipulate a menu to meet requirements, no matter what it is.
There is a buzz right now all around the internet about being in nutritional ketosis, and using that as a way to either lose weight, or for some, just simply maintain when […]
I love high fat, did I ever mention this?
This was so super simple to make, from start to finish it was around 20 minutes. And as it was cooking my daughter was like, Mom, what smells so good? Guess who got the only serving I made that day?
This debunks the theory that you can’t have much veggies while on a true ketogenic diet, or you can’t put yourself into nutritional ketosis with veggies. I say, bah humbug. Don’t ever tell me you can’t do something.
I do have to admit however, that this is awfully GREEN – it needs some color, […]
It’s bizarre that the produce manager is more important to my children’s health than the pediatrician. ~ Meryl Streep
Ain’t it the truth?
I am reminded of the quote from Hippocrates:
“Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.”
That is true on our weight control journey and in our day-to-day lifetime maintenance, but no less the truth for how we should eat while on The hCG Protocol.
There is a sentence in Pounds and Inches that sometimes people feel gives them carte blanche in regards to what you MUST eat (or rather NOT eat) while on P2 (found More
The beauty of living the high fat way of life is that hunger is seldom an issue, and energy is in abundance, that sometimes you just forget to eat.
I know, unreal right?
But seriously, not eating is really NOT an option when you are doing high fat. High fat works better when you are not starving yourself, but instead, giving your body the energy it needs to serve you well.
That is why these little things are so incredibly awesome on a high fat way of life. It provides in just a little package everything that you would need to move on […]
What is Paleo anyway?
If you look around the internet, you are going to find a whole host of definitions. But for simplicity sake, consider it basically this:
Meat + Veggie (Fruits in Moderation) + Fat + Herbs/Spices = Happy Paleo
I am not fond of the Paleo lifestyle, preferring more of a Primal outlook, this is a subject for another day, the whole Paleo vs Primal thing.
In any case, I was sent this recipe by a client asking me to give it a shot. For something that is non-grain, gluten-free, they were pretty darn tasty … if you can get […]
Effective leaders help others to understand the necessity of change and to accept a common vision of the desired outcome. ~ John Kotter
When I was first introduced to this miracle that is The hCG Protocol and I started my first round, I was a purist. I wanted to follow Dr. Simeons’ instructions to a “T”, not deviating from it in the least.
Well … I have to add a caveat … I did my first round under a clinics care so I did do some things a little differently. HOWEVER, the food was as written in Pounds and Inches.

Ok, so it’s avocado season again. And when I say avocado season, I mean it’s the season where you can pick them up at the store for a dollar a piece. That is a steal of a deal for a meal!
I love avocados just as serving platters, as this recipe attests to. You can do just about anything you want with the stuffing, experiment. Yum, I love the freshness of this recipe.
