Zero Carb Information/Resources

As some of you may or may not know, I eat only meat (zero carbs).  My diet mainly consists of fatty ground beef but I do mix it up from time to time with chicken, ground pork, steak, and sometimes eggs/bacon. 

I eat this way mainly to be as thin as I can be and because I do have GI issues especially with anything that contains fiber/soy.  I do not have any GI issues eating zero carb.  It also helped me conquer my 'emotional' eating binges.

I have currently been zero carbing for over 14 months with years before that being very low carb.  Here is a before/after pic. 


The before pic (summer 2010) was when I was eating the so-called 'healthy' American diet of no-processed anything and was running marathons.  A lot of good it did! I just kept gaining.  So I decided I had it and started low carbing (LC) it.  I think sometime while I was doing that - I actually tried zero carb for a few months but for some reason, got back on the low carb wagon.  Then I eventually did paleo and then very low carb (VLC).  Then finally I came to my senses last year and went full fledge Zero Carb (ZC).  The after pic is me at Disney a few weeks ago. (I don't work out at all by the way.)

Happy Easter 2015!


Just wanted to say Happy Easter to everyone out there.  I have church in about an hour - my first Easter service.  Not sure if it will be like a normal service or something different so we'll see.  Then I got invited to my friend's aunt-in-law's house for a get together.  They are having ribs (one of my favs) and the kids will be hunting Easter eggs!  Should be fun.  Have a good one, guys!

Week Ending April 4, 2015 Photos

Thought I'd share with y'all some of the photos from this last week.  You can see most of them if you follow me on instagram. 

These 4 photos are from Wednesday during the afternoon.  I stayed home for a delivery (new cell phone cuz my old one finally died) and decided to hit the beach after I got the delivery.  Unfortunately, it started raining right as I got there but I did get a few pics anyways!




 
 
These next few pics are from that same evening.  Our bible study group decided to get together at the beach and so I took some pics.  Boy - did I get bitten by bugs that day.  I get the most massive bug bites here in Florida.  The only downfall to living here.  These suckers love me.  I don't care if I'm soaking in bug spray...they get me anyways!  And the bites are so massive...like some are the size of a quarter.  Not attractive but I'll take it since I have a view like this all the time!
 






 
It is finally warm enough that I can start wearing my sandals at work.  And I also decided to actually accessorize myself on Friday with a bracelet (among other items) that I got from my Grandma a long time ago.
 



The rest of the pics are from today.  I went to the beach to get some sun...and boy did I!  It was even cloudy for the most part.  Please don't use the S word.  I'm 37 years old and if I want to get some sun, I'll get some sun thank you very much.  lol Eventually, I'll have a nice tan...I just gotta work up to it.  Baby steps. 






After the beach I went to a birthday party.  I wanted to wear my cool gemstone sandals...and here they are!  Got 'em at Kohls.


And here's my red face.  No judgment.  I do it on purpose. 


A cool pic I took of the clouds at the beach today.
