I wont lie. I am a very lazy person. I would much rater sit down in front of the TV and eat junk food and SLOTH all weekend than do most things. Until recently that was what I called relaxing, switching off, unwinding.Read More

I have a confession. I fell right off my LCHF lifestyle over the Chrissy break. I went to South America for 5 weeks with my family and I not only fell off the LCHF bandwagon; I gorged myself on sugar and starchy carbs the whole time! And I gained back the 7 kilos I had lost last year.Read More
