High Protein Rice Salad

High Protein Rice Salad

I just wanted to show everyone how I am incorporating more fruit and protein into my meals with this High Protein Rice Salad.

Once you measure out all the components too, it shows how easily the fat portion rises quickly, even when I am really trying to keep all added fat to a minimum. (There’s more than enough in the food itself.)

Cheeses Protein vs Fat

 

There is no doubt that cheese is a wonderful food in the Ray Peat line up. When weight loss is a consideration however, the protein vs fat equation comes into play in all the cheeses you are eating.

This post was inspired by two of the members of our private Facebook group who were discussing cottage cheese and the fact that it was awful and tasteless. Another issue was gut irritation.

High Protein Ice Cream

High protein ice-cream for breakfast?

You bet! That’s what I’ll be eating in the heat of summer with loads of fruit.

In our Facebook Private Group, we were discussing making sure we get enough protein to keep the liver functioning properly. One member complained that she struggles to get it all in because she doesn’t always feel like it. So I asked the question:

“If it was ice cream with fruit & chocolate on top would you feel like it then?”

Gluten Free Blueberry Muffins – Ray Peat Inspired

BlueberryMuffins

Everyone loves fruity muffins, but they’re even better for your health when they are Gluten Free Blueberry Muffins!

I was trying to think of other things to have for breakfast instead of eggs, fruit and Greek yogurt or the 5 other options in my Zen Beach Diet book. All are fabulous choices but sometimes you want something that still fits the Ray Peat Inspired eating model, but is a little different. The fact that it can be eaten with the amazing protein filled cottage cheese and zesty marmalade is just an added bonus.

Fat Burner HIIT

.

Recent research and a few other influences piqued my interest to read a little about Fat Burner HIIT and test it to see if it actually works.

Fat Burner HIIT is actually recommended to those with PCOS, which seems like a huge mistake as it would raise stress in a person who’s health is already compromised.  Realistically most HIIT programs out there would be a mistake for most people – it’s brutal.

The Zen Beach Diet – How to lose weight

diet, healthy, metabolism, get fit, ray peat

After months of hard work and my kitchen/household turned upside down, I am excited to reveal my latest book – The Zen Beach Diet and show you how to lose weight and gain your health at the same time.

The Best Diet

After Keto ruined my health, I went searching for something else that would enhance my health as well as give me the weight loss results I desired. The fast metabolism, thyroid supporting approach by Dr Ray Peat was the one.

What’s in the book?

It’s based on my experiences with the Dr Ray Peat style of eating and solves the many questions about what to eat, how much to eat, and exactly how to lose weight with this diet. You’ll learn how to formulate a meal, exact macros, calories and how to balance your starch and fat intake.

Sweet Treats Dessert Recipes

While I mentioned in passing in a few social media posts that I was making a dessert recipes book, I prefer not to say much about it while I’m doing it, because you never know when the finish line is going to be.

I’m super excited now though to announce – IT’S HERE! Ta da!

Low Fat Diet – A Health Perspective

I just wanted to give everyone an update on my super low fat diet experiments.

As you may or may not know, since about June (4 months,) I have been trying to have only 20g fat a day, (10% of my 1,800 calories,) which was spurred on by the desire to lose about 5kgs (10lbs) within a Ray Peat diet framework.

(10% of calories was deemed to be the magic level where weight loss was more likely, along with a wider margin of calories allowed to no adverse effect.)

Best exercise to lose weight

Bicepsmaller

Do you know how much daily exercise for health we are supposed to be doing? How much is too much, where it starts to negatively impact your health? Do you know the best exercise to lose weight?

I was visiting my parents who live two states away and I have a running joke with my father, where I ask – “Dad have you been lifting your weights a little?” He always replies, “I’ll start tomorrow.” He has said this for the last 30 years!
