Last Thursday (May 18) was my birthday! Lizabeth was determined to make it the best one yet. It was a very good day. She said I could do anything I wanted (within reason) and she would join me.

Too many calories, protein grams, carbs or fat may kick us out of ketosis. Too few calories and our bodies may go into starvation mode and quit losing weight. It's a fine balance. The best thing we can do is keep a close watch on the macros in the food. So, we pay attention to the amount of fat in relation to calories, … [Continue Reading]
