Hi, I'm Wendy. I am a cookbook author, recipe developer, food lover, and photographer.
Like many of you, the struggled to lose weight has become more and more challenging the older that I've gotten.
I've tried every kind of diet.
Vegetarian. Vegan. Paleo. Calorie Counting. Weight Watchers.
Most of them left me hungry, cranky, and unhappy.
Worst of all, thanks to my autoimmune disease, I'd rarely lose weight, and if I did lose weight, I'd gain it back quickly, plus an extra 10 pounds.
I needed a long term solution, and for me, that is a low carb keto diet.
For the first time in my life, I have fewer cravings, and I am eating less.
Best of all, I am enjoying delicious food AND seeing the scale inch down.
(For me, it is slow thanks to Hashimoto's, but any progress is good progress.)
Plus, my energy levels have never been better.
I want the same for you.
Let's kick carbs together!
