I grate my own cheese straight from a large block. Pre-shredded cheese can be used as well, but many ...

My body said “I’m in!”

My body said “I’m in!”

I have always been a bit of a gym rat. I was a soldier, and have always tried to stay in good physical shape.

I ended up seeing a naturopath who highly recommended the keto diet since cancer cells feed on glucose. I immediately got on it and had to search really hard for all the info. ...

Daily out of breath only half way up, and needing to pull myself the rest of the way. I would grab a Diet Pepsi, my poor attempt at trying to lose weight, and collapse at my desk as I caught my breath.
