After losing a total of 136 lbs,
76 of those lbs were lost by following the Dukan Diet,
which is high protein, low carb, low fat,
I was getting to a point where I was needing to figure out
how to eat for the rest of my life. I was getting bored
with all the protein. It was an awesome diet and it was just what
I needed to finally lose the weight that I had been carrying most
of my life. It worked fast and allowed me to each as much protein
as I wanted, so I never had to worry about being hungry.
So I tried adding back in some carbs…Wow Nelly!!!
My body was not very happy with that. I started to gain weight.
My joints would ache, my muscles felt sore and fatigued.
What the heck was I going to do?
I mean, come on, the only food group to add back in is fat
and I’m a nurse and I have always been taught that
FAT IS BAD!!!
A friend introduced me to a way of life called Keto
or ketogenic diet/ketosis/high fat low carb.
I love it!! It is just what I needed to keep the weight off
and to maintain the weight that I had lost.
I have actually lost 7 more pounds
since changing over to ketosis!
Of course, being a nurse,
I read multiple books written by doctors
to learn all that I could to get my body into ketosis.
I’ve spent the last few months adapting my favorite recipes
to be high fat, low carb, mod protein. (HFLC)
Getting enough fat into my diet was sometimes difficult
until I learned about the world of fat bombs.
It is a way of getting enough fat into your system to get your
body into ketosis or to help you stay in ketosis.
Here is one of my most favorites!!
Pumpking Pie Fat Bomb!
Seriously 60 g Fat and 5g of Carbs (3g net carbs)
for the entire recipe!
I can never actually eat the whole thing at one time
because I get so full.
But it saves easily in the fridge, covered.
I usually come back for it later in the day
or the next day because I love it that much!
Pumpkin Pie Fat Bomb
60g Fat | 5g Carbs
3/4 c Heavy Cream – find a brand with zero carbs like Meadow Gold
1/4 c canned pumpkin
1/2-1 Tbsp pumpkin pie spice (per your flavor preference)
2-3 Tbsp erythritol or any other no calorie sweetner you prefer
1. Add all the ingredients to a small bowl. Using a hand mixer, beat on high (I start on low and work my way up so I don’t splatter it all over my kitchen) until it resembles whipped cream. If you over beat, it gets a buttery texture. It isn’t bad like that, just depends on your likes.
2. Place it in a piping back with large star tip and pipe into ramekin jars. Or do like me and get out a spoon and eat it straight from the bowl!
Look out for many more keto recipes to come!!
