High protein ice cream

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

 

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

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

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 2020 (4 months,) I have been trying to have only 20g fat a day, (10% of my 1,800 calories.) This 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

 

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!

Low Fat Chewy Plum Fudge Recipe

A diet for a fast metabolism includes sweet fruity treats, so this Chewy Plum Fudge recipe fits the bill.

When people start eating a Dr Ray Peat type of diet they think, “look saturated fat is protective so gimme all the ice cream, let me put butter on everything and what do you mean a handful of grated cheese at every meal may be too much?”

20 kgs (40lbs) overweight a few months later and they wonder what happened!

Saturated fat IS protective, but only in the right doses.

Fruity Gluten Free Fruit Cake

 

A gluten free fruit cake recipe comes in handy because when eating for high metabolism, you will need to incorporate quite a bit of fruit.

Since I started reading and blogging about the Ray Peat way of eating – it’s been about 3 years now – my realisation is that 90% of people put on weight when they start eating this way.

(I did a survey on my One Ten Toned –Slimbirdy – Eating Peaty FB Group and the result was 88% with weight gain – so very close.)
