Welcome to KETohh
I’ve always had a great interest in food and living a healthy lifestyle and have worked in both the food industry as well as the fitness industry. A few years ago I signed up for one of those 8 week diet and exercise programs to try to lose a bit of weight. The diet was very low in carbs but I was allowed to eat a restricted amount after exercise. I didn’t realise at the time but I was actually doing a Targeted Cyclical Ketogenic Diet (TCKD). I was amazed at how good I was feeling, how much weight I had lost and also at how good the food I was that I could to eat. This was actually the start of my low carb journey.
I now spend a lot of time researching and reading about the low carb way of life and I also spend a huge amount of time in the kitchen working on simple but healthy recipes that fit in with my lifestyle. I also love sharing my knowledge and recipes with others so I hope that you will find recipes and information on KETohh that will help you along your low carb journey.
You can embrace the low carb way of life a little or a lot. You may simply want to reduce the number of carbs and sugars that you eat or you may want to be extreme for example and do a low carb high fat (LCHF) diet or Ketogenic diet. Either way, the recipes and information I share on this page can apply to your situation.
I have been wanting to start a food and lifestyle blog for such a long time and finally have the confidence and the time to put it out there. I am very passionate about the food that I eat and prepare for my family and friends and I try living as healthily as I can. I am also quite lazy and if ever there is an easier way to get something done, I will find out how to do it. The benefit of this is that I am not a slave to cooking nor to to the mundane things that we get so preoccupied with in life. The bonus to applying this to my life is that it leaves me lots of time to do the things that I love doing. I get real joy out of baking and also love experimenting with, adapting and creating recipes that are really healthy for my family and I.
Based on my posts you will quickly discover that I have effectively thrown the current food guidelines out of the window. I have tried to eliminate as much sugar and processed carbohydrates from my diet as I can and I have embraced adding fat into my diet. I eat amazing food and although tempted occasionally by foods that I would normally avoid, generally I eat a ketogenic diet. Amazingly I have lost my cravings for overly sweet food and I can also easily say no to a bowl of fries these days, something I would have eaten often prior to taking on this way of eating. Perhaps the biggest change is that I very rarely eat processed foods and I also never eat sweets out as I can generally never find low carb sweets available from shops or restaurants. I do enjoy eating the occasional low carb sweet treat at home though, especially with a cup of home brewed cup of coffee and it is things like this that help keep me on track of this way of living. You will find that the majority of my sweet recipes are never overly sweet though and I never make my serving sizes large, as part of my objective is to stop craving sweet foods. The best thing about my sweet recipes is that they actually comply with being low carb so I don’t feel guilty eating them.
Perhaps the one of the best things about the changes I have made to my lifesyle is that it has resulted in a weight loss of over 15 kgs….and this was achieved by eating amazing food. What’s not to like about that? I don’t want to sound like a Jenny Craig ad but when you see people nearest and dearest to you take on this eating regime and lose 25kgs in 6 months then you realise what benefits this way of eating can offer people. I am also very proud of my dad, who is doing an amazing job eating low carb and losing weight in an attempt to get his type 2 diabetes under control.
My website and blogging name KETohh is a combination of my initials KET, combined with Keto which is short for the Ketogenic diet, which is a diet based on low carbs and high fat (LCHF), which is my way of eating, so I figure that this way of life and I were meant to be.
Thanks for taking the time to read this. I hope that you will get inspiration from some of the recipes and articles that I will be sharing on this site.
