I thought I'd send you an update, along with pics taken last month after I'm down 30 pounds.I started back on a protein power type of low-carb diet on 1/17/15.

In the two months prior I had lost 9 pounds, but wasn't happy with that way of eating.I love keto/lchf, which is a very satisfying way of ...

Keto Gyros

Keto Gyros

I had a craving the other day for some nice, big, Gyro sandwiches. You know the ones I'm talking about: hot fluffy bread stuffed with thinly shaved meat, veggies, and of course that yogurt sauce.
