Testimony of the Day
“I just want to thank you for everything. I purchased your book Keto Adapted and it changed my life. I was doing low carb years prior to beginning a ketogenic diet and stalled out on losing weight shortly after. It wasn’t until I read your book that it all made sense. I lost over 20 pounds since January! Though my weight hasn’t been dropping quickly, I am less than 10 pounds away from my goal weight! I was 283 at my heaviest and 150 at my lowest. I am happy to report I now weigh 143! On this journey, I learned that weight loss is a journey and not always linear. I am also learning to love and accept the body I have, even though some days it’s difficult.
Weight loss is only half the battle; the other half is learning to accept any physical flaws in appearance that were caused by the weight loss. I am now proud of the body I have and have you to thank for that. Here are three photos. The first one was before I went low carb and was over 200 lbs. The second one was when I was eating low carb and lost weight, though stalled out around between 160-170 lbs. The last one is recent, where I now weigh 143. I have less than 10 lbs to go, so I will send a new photo once I finally hit my goal! :-)” – Allie
I decided to stop the advertisements on my blog. We thought it would be a helpful revenue (and it was) but I was unable to control what companies advertised. There ended up being lots of diet products I don’t approve of. So we have taken down the ads.
I know many of you all look to me for nutritional information so I just can’t justify having that content on my site. Thank you all for your love and support and keep using my astore and affiliate links (on right side of my blog under “stock your pantry”)

Why Yellow Tomatoes
I like to tell my clients to play this like a game of golf, the lowest score wins! So whenever you can make an easy change of lowering the sugar or carbs, do it! For example, change the marinara sauce you use if you find one with one less carb. I used Prego marinara in my college days which has about 12g carbs per serving (not to mention how it never goes bad in the fridge! I can’t imagine how many preservatives there are). Now my homemade marinara has only 3g per serving since I use yellow tomatoes.
I was totally shocked when I found that green tomatoes were highest in carbs! I thought they would be lower since they are less ripe and less sweet.
Here is the breakdown per CUP:
Yellow Tomatoes = 4.1g carbs, 1g fiber
Orange Tomatoes = 5g carbs, 1.4g fiber
Red Tomatoes = 7g carbs, 2.2g fiber
Green Tomatoes = 9.2g carbs, 2g fiber
