Tears of Crimson is Going Keto!


So, I've been on the Keto "lifestyle" for over a month now and it's been working really well for me. The lockdown has really played havoc with my weight, and health, and I knew that getting back in shape was something I desperately needed.  I wanted to share my journey through this, so I thought I'd create a journal of sorts online.  You can pop in at if you're interested in recipes, and tips to get you started.  I've lost 16lbs, so far!  

As some of you may, or may not know, I'm a type two diabetic, and what really kicked me in the backside was my sugar levels reaching 377 at my last doctor's appointment. I'd been in a funk for the last year, and really let myself go, both mentally and physically.  If you've noticed, I haven't released any books in over a year, and a big reason for that is I was physically exhausted.  I'm writing again, my mental clarity is returning and my blood sugar is now back in the normal range.  Keto has been a huge life-changer for me!

It's been a huge adjustment changing a lifetime of eating habits, but I haven't been hungry!  I think the reason a lot of diets fail is that you're always starving.  If you're doing Keto right, you won't have to deal with that.  I'm not a doctor or a dietician, so I don't know why Keto works to keep you full while eating less, but it does work.  I even have to force myself to eat these days, because I'm just not hungry.  The hardest part about this is coming up with meal plans (at least it was for me) and I've shared exactly what I've eaten for the last five weeks on the new journal blog.  No, I'm not charging for this information!  

If you're looking to lose weight, or maybe even help your type two diabetes, I hope you'll join me on this journey.  For me, this is a lifestyle change, not a diet, and you have to go into this with the right frame of mind.  Believe me, I was a huge bread, pasta, rice, and potato eater prior to Keto, so it is an adjustment period.  I've learned how to substitute those foods for healthier, and believe it or not, tastier options, and I don't feel like I'm missing out.  I've even discovered how to eat out and still remain on Keto.  Basically what I'm saying is, if I can do this, I know you can too.  I hope to see you on the blog!
