It's everything you need to know about Keto to start losing fat and building muscle
Why eat a SLICE of pizza with almost 40g of carbs when you eat a whole keto pizza for less than 15g? Only 5 ingredients and only took me 20 min to make. Perfect size for Jimmy and I to split. This is the best recipe ever and won’t make me feel miserable! 🙌
REASONS TO MAKE TALLOW LOTION:
- You want to use up tallow made from your leftover animal fat (https://www.minimalisteating.com/blog/simplest-stove-top-tallow-or-lard)
- Eating animal-based in not enough and you want to use animal-based products on your skin!
- You want to use a non-toxic skincare product rich in skin-healthy vitamins and fatty acids with anti-microbial and anti-cancer properties!
- You're tired of lotion that leaves your hands oily or quickly dried out again
Whatever your reason, this is a simple recipe that you can make for as little as pennies. I'm sure you'll agree is a great alternative to store bought products!

This time of the year is full of temptations. Normally if I received a gift like this I would go to town... and then feel full of guilt afterwards.
Now I don’t even feel like I’m missing out. When you put the right kind of food in your body every day your will power becomes unbelievably strong. Stick to the foods that make you feel good long enough and the temptations will start to lose their power over you!
I used to think getting bone in steak was lame because they charged you for the bone but T-bone steaks are awesome. How wrong I was. There's something about gnawing on a bone and getting the rest of the meat off the bone that I find enjoyable. These were delicious!
Tagged by @keto_together for my last selfie, song, and quote!
I'm not the most consistent person at doing these Instagram tag things, but I thought this one was super cool, so... here it is!
Last selfie is from Friday because I'm realizing how few I really take. One of my favorites, though!
Last song was Scrollin by Futuristic and Hopsin. The song I dedicate to trolls everywhere!

I spoke about this in my stories this morning but I receive a few messages asking me how I started and stuck to keto....sharing some of my tips below. It’s been over 2 years for me now and I’m maintaining my weight and health through a keto lifestyle which sometimes maintaining can be just as hard as the beginning but if ever I put on a few kilos I don’t want then I go back to basics like below. .
So this is what I did.....doesn’t mean it’s what will work for you and I know everyone is different. .
1️⃣ I didn’t eat any keto baking or sweets for the first 6 months
2️⃣after 2 Months I brought in intermittent fasting daily minimum 16 hours. I ate dinner at 5.30pm and nothing until lunch time 12/12.30 the following day.
3️⃣ ive never added sweetner in my coffee. Just black with @temple_nutrition MCT oil or with almond milk/macadamia milk
4️⃣I did track my macros for the first week but I didn’t enjoy doing this so I researched all the low carb/keto foods, wrote lists and went with that.
5️⃣i set alarms to remind myself to drink plenty of water.
6️⃣ I exercise every day ..going for a walk, running, Reformed Pilates, weights, sit ups ....any of these but I do something (I get asked if I believe it’s necessary to lose the weight on keto.....)no but it helps speed it along, plus makes you feel amazing, helps your heart rate, your brain, your daily function and will help add tone to your body as you lose the weight.
7️⃣ did I ever cheat or slip up? Of course! I’m no saint but I got over it and the next day was a brand new day. Don’t let it get you down, just keep going, you’ve got this!
8️⃣ my dinners were pretty much what I eat now, although I didn’t even start to make fathead pizzas until a year after starting keto. My lunches were similar, lots of eggs and avocado.
9️⃣ if I felt like a snack I had a few almonds or slice of cheese.
🔟take the before and after photos, it’s very rewarding to look back and see how far you have come. I would weigh myself daily and wrote it down next to the date.

★BPC★ I don't have it often, maybe like once two/three weeks when I feel festive & want a super treat and even then I can't even finish the whole cup...but once in a while I do make it. ★ Butter & heavy cream, plus I do add SF flavoring - salted caramel is probably my fave, it kills the occasional need for a sweet treat which is seriously less & less on carnivore ★ I do drink lots of black coffee & this drink isn't about coffee for me, it's more a dessert type ★ I like the flexibility of carnivore - there's no real policing out there in the community (or I haven't experienced it yet) and you can see what works best for your body (real hard core carnis are steak & water only which I respect but not yet ready for such regiment) ★
I know that these days, people are really pushing the “low carb” or “no carb” or “Ketogenic” diets and so forth. People think that carbs are evil and they’re unhealthy … they make you fat, bad for your brain, and so forth.⠀
This is utter nonsense.⠀
As with any type of food, it’s the KIND of carbs, fats, and proteins you eat that can be good or bad for you.⠀
Open up to new things today.....if the past hurt, don’t let it depress your emotions today.
I miss so many beautiful mornings by allowing yesterday’s worries to steal my joy.
Reminding myself today that it’s a fresh start. Keep it simple and treat the day like an adventure - don’t live a “Groundhog Day” existence!
Today was the first time I’m really experiencing the decreased hunger associated with keto. I’ve been up since 11 (it is now 3:15) and I’m still not hungry! Usually by this time I am ravenous. I woke up, took a shower, watched a few youtube videos, studied, went to class, and took a final exam. Still nothing! Considering I spent almost all of my life addicted to food and letting my hunger run me, its an odd feeling. This is a cobb salad I picked up at my dining hall -sans dressing, I have my own- and I’m looking at it questioning why I bought it in the first place. Do you guys ever experience this? I think my brain is so used to me being hungry all the time that I automatically went and bought food because I knew I hadn’t eaten, without putting my actual hunger levels into consideration! Maybe my head is messing with me, who knows🤷🏻♀️ All I know is I can’t even stomach this right now. Still, this is a nice meal I’ll have for a late lunch when I DO get hungry.
Another awesome thing: I woke up at 288 lbs this morning. It’s so crazy to me to see that things are actually happening. On other diets I would go a few weeks and see no progress at all, but on keto my body is ridiculously happy to dispel this weight on my body. I’m positive a lot of it is water weight, but I expected that to be over 9 days in! I feel amazing though, no signs of the keto flu anymore and I’m generally feeling a boost in my overall happiness. Having suffered from intense depression since the age of 12, I’m glad to see that my mood is shifting into more positive thoughts than negative ones. It’s slight, but fingers crossed it keeps going up from here 🤞🏻😊
