Decided to blog mainly about low-carb stuff, but also some other girly things that don’t have anything to do with nutrition. This will mainly be dedicated to food, nutrition and new recipes.

Bit of background, Vegetarian of 12 years, Fruitarian of 1 year, followed DANDR Atkins to loose 42lb now cycling egg fasting in order to get fit, ripped and ready for summer!

The choice to change my diet radically was mainly for weight loss, I probably wasn’t anywhere near as active as I am now, but my weight was sitting still and I felt it was worth trying a different way of life for a short period. Been low carb since August 2008.

I can’t tolerate a huge amount of dairy, am playing around with doing this with and without. Shall see how that goes! The decision to go back to being a lacto-ova vegetarian after being a strict vegan was a pretty big deal for me, I think some sort of middle ground is best!

For the last 10 weeks have been cycling Egg fasting with Stillman’s diet, the next 4 weeks aims to be as low carb as possible, playing around with amounts of fat and seeing the impact this has on weight loss as well as strength during training.

Usually consume 10-15g carbs per day, Aim to keep it as close to ZERO as possible.
