Low-Carb Diet – Conclusion

After about 3 months on a low-carb diet, I stopped seeing posititve results on my derriere.  In other words, it wasn't diminishing anymore.  I lost some fat from that area but then I just reached a plateau where no more progress was being made.  That was disappointing so I stopped following this diet as strictly as I had been.  I did, however, lose any fat I had on the rest of my body!  So if you're not particular about where the fat disappears from, this diet will not fail to get rid of some fat. And I did learn a few things!  This diet was probably one of the healthiest things I have ever done for my body.  It made me realize how much of [...]

Low-Carb Experiment Results

Well, after a full month of ahering pretty stictly to my low-carb diet, I lost 3 lbs and 1" circumference around my posterior.  Considering I was probably consuming over 200+ carbs a day prior to the diet and spent a month consuming less that 50 carbs a day only to lose 1", I can't help but wonder what my body's been doing with all those extra carbs before, as I was not all that much more active... It's encouraging to see that some of the fat disappeared so I'm determined to keep this up as long as I see progress.  My goal for December is to not regain the fat as I will allow myself to enjoy some small indulgences of the season.  My plan [...]

My Low-Carb Vegetarian Experiment

I'm going to start off by explaining that I am a healthy, slim and fairly fit woman (although I should exercise more).  But like alot of women, I have some stubborn fat I've never been able to get rid of.  Unlike most women who usually deal with belly fat, my fat storage compartment resides in my derriere and has remained there for my entire adult life.  Nothing I've done has gotten rid of this useless fat. When I read about Ketosis almost 2 years ago, it sounded like the perfect solution to dissolve the fat.  However, all the Ketogenic cookbooks I've seen are written for meat eaters.  I did not want to deal with the hassle of reconfiguring recipes to suit my vegetarian lifestyle.  Finally, [...]
