Since eating low carb high fat I have new hair growth that sticks up, its about 5 inches long which correlates exactly because ive been low carb for almost 10 months. 😉 it's annoying but I lost a lot of hair over the last few years. I almost never get acne , and I can actually add numbers in my head and think clearly. And I am not constantly hungry! I used to think I had a problem because my appetite was so big. Nope, just too many sugars and processed carbs.🍌🥞🍩🍰🚫 If I could just get my eyebrows to thicken up! I haven't got my thyroid labs since late August. TSH is August was 1.2 (before it was 0.02)
What health benefits have you seen since starting Keto???? I want to know!
I told my keto friend about the @cheeseisthenewbread
and she made some that afternoon.
She put garlic granules in hers because she missed garlic bread.
So guess what I just did? I have some egg salad that will taste yummy on these for lunch today. This is the keto hack I have appreciated the most. I miss sandwiches so much but am not a person who can afford all of the expensive keto flours. They also seem to give me flares because of my autoimmune disease. #ketoforhashimotos
The cold hard truth of living with an #ED
. For just a moment I lost sight of ME being in control of my motor functions. I gave too much power to the animal brain in that moment.
But it’s over and I am committed to:1) losing the weight in a HEALTHY (non-purge) manner
2) refocusing on the fact I am the one that CHOOSES to binge or not.
3) while “triggers” are created by me as an excuse to binge, I am aware certain foods will cause a physiological response in my body. I felt/feel like I have the flu after eating all of that junk. I need to recognize that eating even just one bite will cause my blood sugar to drop and I will crave more sugar (and the animal brain will take full advantage of that fact). So my plan is to be more prepared and not give in to initial cravings.

A pile of Mexican cheese baked in the oven turns into a taco shell! And it’s so yum yums😋. Inside my shell is taco meat, Rotel tomatoes 🍅 and chilies 🌶. Cheese 🧀 , riced cauliflower, and sour cream. This is one of my go to meals for the family. Jack would eat this everyday if he could. 😃 #ketolife #fatfueledathletes #ketoforhashimotos
All I ever got from carbs (donuts, bagels, grains, cereal, bread) was lots of stored fat (energy) ! Despite exercising I managed to gain 50 pounds (over 3 years) after Having my 4th child. I never lost the baby weight. This was a *true example of trying to "out work a bad diet" and a terrible sugar addiction -With hypothyroidism- 🚫🚫 Don't fall into the carb addiction cycle..the more you eat , the more you will want!

My TSH was 0.24 . My T4 was 9.4.The office said it was normal. I bet my primary doc disagrees. 😏It is better than it was in Nov of 2017. Which was 0.02. But no, I don't have hyperthyroidism, I have hashimotos..but sometimes it acts weird. I can never tell by symptoms, for instance I've been freezing cold for 3 weeks. I figured my TSH would be at least 5. I'm just surprised both tests were in the normal range..they never are! .
A yummy chicken salad sounded so good after working in our basement for a few hours. The hubs has started a leptin reset plan due to a pretty long stall in his weight loss journey so we decided to reduce our processed food intake. This includes salad dressing. We decided to try our hand at Ceasar. Pretty good for a first try and super easy in the Ninja blender. A special thanks to my neighbor @sueporterhaney
for the yummy garden fresh tomatoes. 🍅🍅🍅🍅 I haven't had a yummy tomato in a long while and these babies are soooo good.

Keto Mexican Egg Casserole. So easy!
1 pound breakfast sausage
1/2 pound chorizo
5oz fresh spinach
1 red bell pepper, diced
1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
12 large eggs
1/4 cup heavy cream
Brown sausage and chorizo together in a large skillet. Add spinach and bell pepper and cook until spinach is fully wilted down.
In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, cream, cheese and dry seasonings.
Transfer meat and veggies to a greased 9x13 baking dish. Pour egg mixture over the top and stir gently just to incorporate all the ingredients.
Bake at 350 for 45 minutes or until eggs are set. Serve with taco toppings. We had cilantro, tomato, avocado, and sour cream.
Makes 18 servings. I bet it would be good reheated for easy breakfasts all week long.
