Sorry it’s been so long….

Dear Readers,

So, I have been quite busy getting things together. I realize that I have not posted in quite some time and I want to change that today. I hope you guys know that you can always reach me on face-book  and you can track my weight loss updates on my you-tube channel here.

I want to take this time to answer some questions  that I get quite frequently regarding my diet plan and weight loss. If after reading this post you still have questions, please feel free to comment below.

Q and A with Jay!

Are you on Atkins?

While I am not on Atkins, I do follow a low carb lifestyle. I had a hard time staying on the regit Atkins Induction program. So, now I eat  between 25 and 30 carbs daily and I am seeing amazing results.

How much weight have you lost so far?

To date, I have lost a total of 30lbs!

Why don’t you list the nutritional information for your recipes?

In the beginning when I did list the nutritional values, I would get comments from readers questioning the carb count of the recipes. Carb count can fluctuate based on the food brand that I use versus the food brands my readers use. I would have to spend time breaking down each ingredient by carb count to show how I achieve the final number. As you can imagine, this was quite a tedious task for me. I now realize that this information is vital to many of you on a restrictive diet. So, I am working on getting the counts for each recipe added and in the future all recipes will be published with the nutritional information attached to them.

How has your health improved since doing low carb?

Since doing low carb I have seen amazing results with my health.

1. I know longer have diabetes.It is controlled with my diet.

2. I lowered my cholesterol by 30 points. That is right people, eating fat does NOT make you fat! It gets you healthy!

3. I have so much more energy!

4. PCOS and issues associated with this health syndrome, are no longer an issue for me.

Do you exercise?

Yes! Exercise to me goes hand in hand with a healthy lifestyle. I try to go to the GYM 5 days per week. I do 30 minutes of cardio and every other day I do strength training along with the cardio.

How much more weight do you need to lose to reach your goal?

My goal weight is 140lbs. I have 95 more pounds to lose, and I am working on doing that this year. Feel free to follow my journey here.

When will you make more recipes?

I have so many goodies to show you guys, I am constantly writing and creating new recipes. I love cooking and I am always excited to share my recipes. I am reorganizing this blog before I start cooking again.  I should have a recipe video up really soon.

I notice that you have not done a podcast in quite sometime, are you still doing them?

Yes! I am working on getting that organized too.

Do you have any advise for someone who is just starting on a weight loss plan?

I am so flattered by this question,  so here is my advise I say these words to myself daily- NEVER GIVE UP!

I love you guys and I thank you for reading my blog and for the support I receive daily.

    Thanks for all the recipes that you post, you make eating low carb much easier. What a beautiful and generous lady you are. Reading your posts makes me feel that I can do low carb too.

  4. Jay says:

    Hello, in some of the recipes I am sure you can. What recipe were you referring too?

  5. Donna says:

    Hi! I was wondering if you can substitute Full Fat Sour Cream in your recipes instead of Greek Yogurt? I can’t find any full-fat Greek Yogurt and the non-fat/lowfat are pretty high in carbs.

    Thanks for your website it’s awesome!

    Hi, I have been enjoying your website. I have been doing low-carb to get my blood sugar down and it seems to be working!
    Just wanted to tell you about Julian Bakery’s low-carb gluten free bread (I can’t do gluten). It has really helped give me a satisfied feeling for a sandwhich or pizza. I got one of those starving moments this afternoon and just took a slice of it, put cheese and spinach on it and microwaved it for a minute. Yummy and took care of the hungries. Just wanted to pass it on. Thanks!

  12. Barry Hughes says:

    I really enjoy watching your videos. Glad to see the update!

  13. Tara says:

    Glad to see you posting again! You are one of the few people out there trying really creative low-carb recipes and I look forward to seeing more of yours!

    In a side note, if you ever come across a good pancake or waffle low-carb recipe, I will definitely give it a try!
