close every door

People are not always open to change.
Especially in health issues.

I never thought I would say this,
But people will shop around until they find a doctor,
Or a spouse / partner / friend / lover

Someone who is compatible  -
And by that, I mean usually - 
They agree on what kind of junk food is good!

As the saying goes, you can get a person to change religions
Faster than you can get them to change diets.

Very few times you see people going on and on about healthy choices.
Too much work.

People find what vice (if you will) is ok -
And which ones are not.
Cedar here loves his 'Nip!

I even think that using a ketone meter can be a way to cheat.
If a person used a Breathalyzer before they drove,
They should probably just not be drinking. Or driving. 

Why not just cut back on carbs? 
Why worry about ketosis - if you don't eat past your carb threshold?
Cut them out. 

I'm not sure the focus is about having ketones ...
Or just being low carb. 
Are we really in ketosis - except at first?

Find the hidden sugars and get rid of them.
Why would a Doctor need to testify 
That people can live a happy life without pie?

And why are we so quick to attack people who don't eat carbs?
If a person with lung cancer quit smoking -
We would applaud. Same with a person with liver cirrhosis.
If they quit drinking, we would rejoice.

Why is it then, with Obesity
We sit there, shrugging - 
Crying and struggling - 
Saying we don't know what happened! 

And we can't figure out why we can't lose weight...
Or feel better or shed this disease or get rid of the inflammation.
The grains. The junk food. The sugars.

Just have a meat, and a non-starchy veggie...
And a salad. No hardship.
No deprivation on Low Carb.

There are even low carb treats to be had now and then!
Like this site - one of many!
Low Carb sites are so popular now - thank goodness!
And Pintrest! Win-Win.

When I first started, I was one of just a few LC bloggers 
In our tight awesome little weight loss blogger community.
Now we have Keto, Paleo, Primal, Intermittent Fasting -
And it looks like its slowly changing for the better.
Low Fat "traditional diets" are destroying health.
There is no denying it.

Everyone gets better lab results.
Everyone loses weight, and feels better.
There might be a few exceptions.
But most everyone feels better when they eat better.
And better - for me is much less "carbage."

And so many people go back to the old way of eating.

That is a good time to close that door.
So other ones can open. 


  1. Thanks! You KNOW I am serious when I start quoting the 3 Stooges.... lol

  2. Preach! I love your analogies...
    Why are people are so "afraid" to give up processed carbs??? Last night we went to dinner at a nice Italian place and I had 2 appetizers (a shrimp appetizer and an Italian chop salad with lettuce, salami, cheese, garbanzo beans...it was delish), which means I don't have to eat the pasta that comes with a regular entree. I'm full but not bloated on the carbs. Yet my dinner companions are so shocked... "that's all you are eating???" Yes, it was plenty of food, and I felt good when I was finished; not stuffed and tired from insulin shock.

  3. Yeah, I've resisted buying a ketone blood meter just because I don't need to chase ketones. I only need to eat low carb some IF. That will get me there. My ketones won't matter. My body will let me know how it's working.


I would love to hear from you!
