To all the carbs I loved before…

Dear friends and other interesting creatures, One backstreet boy lost, one more to go… 🙂 18 months…. longer than I have ever kept to any way of eating. When it reaches seven years I can say it lasted longer than any of my marriages… #justsaying I’m living in hope however #SirNoidForTheWin ! I review restaurants, travel destinations, movies, theater productions, products and books. By it’s very social nature, I attend a fair amount of events with flare and extravagance! Beautifully decorated settings, decadent food, exquisite drinks and exclusive venues. It is exciting, fun and one can easily get distracted by … Continue reading To all the carbs I loved before…

Dear friends and other interesting creatures, When contemplating starting anything new, it is imperative that you are informed. Please make sure you research, ask and feel content with your decision before you embark on something that will change your life, especially when it comes to changing the way you eat which impacts your health. Banting as LCHF is called in South Africa, is NOT a quick fix. It is something you need to commit to for life.  You can’t go back to carbs.

Don’t chuck your brain out with the bread. @ProfTimNoakes @loseitmag #banting #lchf

Dear friends and other interesting creatures, I’ve been following a LCHF (low carb high fat) way of eating for six months now with great results and benefits. In South Africa,  this is referred to as banting. Having an online presence it would make sense that I belong to many Facebook groups on the topic as well as have a personal Facebook page where I post recipes or articles. I have however witness how people appear to have lost the ability to think for themselves. On various forums, a post went round about ‘flat tummy water’. Believe me after six months you have … Continue reading Don’t chuck your brain out with the bread. @ProfTimNoakes @loseitmag #banting #lchf

I’m shocked! @real_meals #banting @proftimnoakes

Dear friends and other interesting creatures – #Banting. Wow – what a total way to mess with my head. As a fat person (none of us are blind) I am very well informed about food – all types. Hell, I’ve eaten enough of it. What I do know is that in my head you always reach for the low fat or non fat in everything. It is like a learned behaviour, and here comes @proftimnoakes and turns it on its head. My blogger friend, @SharonVW has been doing incredibly well and I am incredibly proud of her…. and incredibly jealous so naturally … Continue reading I’m shocked! @real_meals #banting @proftimnoakes
