fat2fabI’ve been doing some SM work for a friend of mine that owns Get Slim SAΒ and have really been educated in what is a low carb high fat diet with all the work I’ve been doing in content creation for her SM accounts and website. I’m now even more convinced than ever that lchf is the way to go! Elize has lost in excess of 20kg’s following this eating plan and best of all, she has kept it off and seen remarkable improvements in her cholesterol, insulin and fatty deposits around her liver – she donated an organ last year, so has been closely monitored by a team of specialists over the past couple of years in preparation for the organ harvest.

As part of my I AM challenge for 2014, one of my goals has been I AM HEALTHY and so we started chatting about a weight loss idea for the four of us, Elize, her husband, Walter and I. We decided to set up a kitty and each of us would pay a monthly amount of R200 into the kitty and the winner come 15 December 2014 would get all the money in the kitty, which amounted to R9 600!

I’d just come back from grocery shopping for the week ahead following a lchf eating plan and posted this pic:
