Yes both of those images are me, 8 years separates the two and about 45 pounds. Let me tell you a story so you can begin to understand how I can help you.
- Studied at The Royal Academy of Dance ( ballet ) for 4 years as a child
- Avid swimmer & life saving course completion growing up
- Found a passion with high jump at 10 years old, probably because I was taller then everyone else
- Fell in love with running all through Jr & Sr High. Was on the track teams as a distance runner & speed walker, joined the cross country team & was the girl to remind the teacher of the 10km run that day.
Through out my 20’s & 30’s I ran to clear my head & to keep fit. I played sports when asked to join & could play well. I even broke my thumb when I was 17 playing floor hockey. In my 30’s I got married & had my 2 kids & all of a sudden weight became an issue. ( I maybe weighed 120 lbs before I had kids, very underweight, and never gave 2 thoughts to weight )
After baby #2 the doctors told me I was over weight & needed to lose between 40-50 lbs. I had been extremely under weight till baby #1 so this was a shock to my system. Having had 2 medical necessary c-sections my recovery was slow and going no where. I ate healthy, making sure calories out where less then calories in, I did portion control, following the Canadian Healthy Eating Guide. NOTHING was happening. I even joined a local gym and worked out 5 days a week for 52 weeks and the only weight I lost was the 15 pounds I gained on 6 months of Weight Watchers.
After the 3 years of mandatory recovery from c-section #2 the doctors began testing me for issues that could be stopping me from losing weight. Turns out I have a hormone imbalance. urgh. So off to specialists for artificial hormones & NOTHING worked. I am still running, eating healthy, I walk everywhere and getting more frustrated by the day. After following some inspirational people on my instagram account I learned people were correcting auto immune diseases following the Keto way of eating. So I researched for months about keto, talking with doctors & the likes. So May 22, 2017 I said ” what have I got to lose?” and began Keto.
NOW don’t dismiss me just yet. I do not recommend this way of eating to anyone. But what I have learned is proper nutrition, the importance of macros, nutrients & what foods are good for us and what foods aren’t so much. And I have discovered a passion to share all my research, knowledge, lessons and more with those who find themselves in the same boat.
How I can Help You Out in the Food Department!

A women struggles with PMS, mood swings, acne & certain auto immune disorders I want to look inside their fridge.
