I figured if I could share some of my favorite recipes for Slow Carb eating and to help others stick to the program by showing them how a Slow Carb lifestyle can be delicious, decadent and doesn’t have to be remotely boring, then it would motivate me to keep cooking yummy, healthy food as well.
That was back in January 2011. Fast forward a few years, and my eating style has evolved a bit from the standard Slow Carb Diet -the plan made popular by Tim Ferris in his #1 NYT Best Selling Book, The Four Hour Body.
The Slow Carb Diet worked well for me the first year (I lost 15 lbs and hit my goal weight!), but 2012 brought with it a lot of stress and health challenges as I started a new business, and the weight crept back on despite me sticking to the protocol (and getting stricter.)
I tried tweaking the diet, every which way.
I tried Paleo. I tried Primal Blueprint. The Blood Type Diet. a High Alkaline Diet. Green Juices + Smoothies via The Beauty Detox Diet. I even incorporated Intermittent Fasting (still doing this one – for all the other health benefits!)
All seemed to have merit (and damnnnn did I learn a lot about diet and nutrition during the period!), but nothing worked.
I was completely frustrated. And since nothing was working, I figured ‘why bother’.
A friend mentioned I should look in to adrenal fatigue as that had really impacted her energy and caused her to pack on the pounds her first few years as an entrepreneur.
A trip to the Kinesiologist verified her suspicion. Just to be sure, I had my doctor run some blood tests.
Yep. Adrenal Fatigue.
So that’s where the story picks up. It’s now early 2013, and I’ve gotten my adrenal fatigue to a manageable point.
I’m ready to get my body and energy back.
Keep coming back to join me in the journey. I’ll be sharing tips, trick, learnings and failures with you as I go.
