5 High Fat Foods To Help You Lose Weight

We have heard it before: Gram for gram, fat has more than twice the calories of protein or carbohydrates, and eating too many calories leads to weight gain; therefore, people should eat less fat.

A traditional beef stew, with fall-apart tender beef, vegetables, and rich broth, is almost impossible to pull off on a weeknight. It can take two to three…

Free Ditch The Sugar Challenge

SUGAR… I have a love-hate relationship with sugar. I mean, I love chocolate…really love it. Cookies, and brownies, and cakes are my weakness. But I also hate sugar for the way it makes me feel. It’s so addictive! And I can’t stand the sugar crashes after the spikes. It’s always been a crazy cycle for me: cutting back on sugar so I can feel better and then giving in to temptation and going overboard. After starting a Keto diet, I…
