Low Carb Keto Chocolate Peanut Butter Fat Bombs

I must admit that I’m not on the keto diet. In fact, I was even skeptical of it at first. But I’ve had enough friends find success on keto for me to think there must really be something there. Plus, I love that people on keto don’t complain about keto. There are enough foods available on the diet to keep them satiated and not feeling grumpy — they’re still fun to hang out with! Not that other diets can make us cranky… or wait. Yes. Yes they do. My keto friends were feeling left out of the Everybody Craves page. Except for a few low carb smoothies, I hadn’t shown them much love. Time to change that. This recipe comes from my friend (and videographer!) Jess, who loves this recipe so much that when she accidentally let a baggie full of these melt in her hot car, she called it…

Keto Blackberry Smoothie

Berries are one of the few fruits that are allowed on the Keto diet. That’s because they are lower in sugar and carbs than most other fruits (don’t even try to eat a banana or grape on Keto!).

A small handful can help new keto followers get a taste for something sweet and fresh while they’re getting accustomed to their new diet. Here’s a relish leto-approved berry smoothie to get your morning started: Keto Blackberry Smoothie Ingredients  1/4 avocado 1/4 cup frozen blackberries 1/4 cup unsweetened coconut milk (the full-fat kind) 1 cup cold water Directions Add all ingredients to blender and process until smooth.

High-fat diets might not be best for weight loss, one study shows

If you’ve gone on a diet recently, you’ve probably been told by a friend or even a fitness professional that a low-carb, high-fat diet is the fastest way to fitness. The theory goes that this type of diet will force your body into ketosis, where it will burn fat instead of carbs, prompting you to shed more pounds. But a new study suggests that this might not be the case. The new study from the University of Aberdeen in the Chinese Academy of Sciences was published in Cell Metabolism. Researchers found that mice who ate high-fat diets gained more weight over a three-month period than mice who ate high-carb diets. And actually, the mice fed carbs, didn’t gain any weight at all, while the high-fat diet produced overweight mice. Researchers at Aberdeen studied how mice responded to 30 different diets, which varied widely in fat and carb content. The diet-appropriate foods…

All calories are not created equal, new study shows

We’ve all been told that if you eat less calories and exercise regularly, you’ll lose weight. It’s harder than it sounds, but it’s been touted as the only true path to weight loss success. But the Journal of the American Medical Association is saying this just isn’t so. While exercise still stands as an important part of weight loss, smaller portions and fewer calories have less to do with weight loss than we’ve been taught. Instead, the study pinpoints exactly what dieters much ditch in order to lose weight: refined grains, processed foods and foods with added sugar — no surprises there. The research was conducted by Christopher D. Gardner, director of nutrition studies at Stanford Prevention Research Center. Around 600 people were split into two different diet groups. One at “healthy” low carb and the other “healthy” low fat. Dietitians trained both groups to eat home-cooked, minimally processed whole foods. Both…
