Me and my Daugter 2005.
In the photo above 10 years ago I felt great, looked good and had no health issues, weight 125. here is my story.
Thank you for stopping by, I’m hoping I can touch some folks with my ideas and recipes. Me, well I’m Cynthia I live in the South East of Georgia were southern food reins supreme. At 51 years young I discovered I was developing Diabetes and having Menopausal symptoms and hypertension, extremely tired all the time. One blood test after the other everything was fine except for my ups and downs with my blood sugar. After some brief instructions from the doctor and givin a prescription or two, I was on my way.
After several months of trying to change portion size eating better foods, less fat, salads omg I felt like a bunny, in fact I was so misarable eating salads I felt sorry for our pet bunny and started changing his food from fresh to mixed with a verity of goodies.
Another trip to the doc. Not much had changed. I saw a movie about Food healing,getting away from preservatives,I decided to try a style of eating I touched on some years ago. It was called The Belly Fat cure by Jorge Cruise. Since most of my weight was around my midd presenting itself like a large donut I was trying to hide. In this plan you count your sugars and carbs. Simple, not quite. There’s some math and label reading involved. But otherwise a really good concept.
Starting on the Carb/Sugar plan I allowed myself 12 weeks to feel better, look better and have some overall improvement. Around the 4 th week I started really getting into the low carb plan. I didn’t crave anything. If I did I found a substitute that was low carb. I started studying Atkins,Paleo and all the other Carb cutting sites and services. Getting more and more involved and tiring to figure out why this plan was working and working well. Could I live like this forever, I came to the conclusion that this was a life changer.
Going into my 8th week I decided to take the world on this trip with me. If your having problems on yo yo diets,can’t find time to cook, don’t know what to cook, I’m going to try to help.
I’ve got a family to cook for and a home I’m remodeling not to mention a house full of pets and a chicken coop. So A busy life for a stay at home mom.
My stats, well starting I was 163 and after 7weeks I’m 148 and have no Menapausal symptoms and a lot more energy, I still take hypertension mess. But intend on speaking to doc about getting off when I’ve reached my 12th week. I’m not a professional doctor or nurse or dietician. This is just my options and recipes that myself and my family love. from breakfast to main course it’s all going to be in here.
I’m going to keep the recipes as Simple as possible, but I do have to warn you, if you don’t cook…we are going to learn. In my recipes everything is from scratch absolutely NO preservatives. Your going to learn real flavor. Please don’t be scarred like I was learning is FUN.
So HUGS to everyone and thanks for stopping by.
