When I was 4 years of age I use to sneak into the kitchen, open the refrigerator door, grab a stick of butter and eat it like it was a candy bar. Whenever my mother was in the kitchen cooking I would dip my finger into the container of butter as if it was a bowl of frosting. I had no idea what magical thing I was doing to my body back then. I was a happy kid and a twig to boot.
From adolescent to my mid 40’s, I destroyed my metabolism, my hormones got whacked out and my adrenals became completely overtaxed. I would successfully lose all the weight 3-5 times in a span of 37 years. Each time gaining it back, becoming depressed and getting more and more hungry. All the while not realizing all the damage I was doing to my body internally. When I found the Ketogenic Diet or Low Carb High Fat Diet I became excited that I would be able to eat well and to satiety and still get great benefits of health. I am losing weight slowly but I am no longer focused on that as weight loss is a by-product of this great way of eating. I am very focused on healing my body and I am very passionate about sharing my journey, hoping this will help someone out there who is looking for a sustainable way of eating and living . Discovering I can eat butter again has simply put me in a great mood.
Hi, my name is Cynthia. I have been on a Ketogenic Diet (or LCHF Diet) consistently with no carb refeeds since January 2016. I started playing around with Keto roughly in December 2014 but I did not stay consistent because I didn’t know enough about the basic principles of this diet. I had many slip ups during the next year. I decided I needed to research the Ketogenic diet and all its benefits.
With everything I have learned and am currently learning, it is getting really easy to stay strong on this diet. I recently decided to become a health coach. Many people I know in my community have diabetes or autoimmune diseases. I would love to help them get on a path to wellness.
My hopes for this blog is to be able to share my knowledge and my own journey to health and wellness. I want to share the tools that has been key to my continued success as well as provide tons of resources that has educated me. I would like for this blog to blossom into a community where we can tell our stories, share ideas and give each other support. I think that would be amazing.
I am so happy to have my buttery days back.
