Stopping In To Say Hello!

18 March 2014 - 10:36 AM

I am alive and well - just very busy.  We are preparing for our gigantic move to Croatia in May which means listing and selling our house, vehicles, trying to decide what to take along (we are very restricted with space) and what to leave behind; what to sell and what to donate. We have no idea how many years we will be there but we are planning on many.  We do hope to visit family every summer in Canada which will be great.  We are also working through residency issues, learning the language, and so on.  We will soon be saying our farewells to family and friends (and our precious dog we only have for a few more weeks).   I have always been sentimental but am more now than ever.  However, thankfully there is Skype.  :)


Just wanted to give you a brief update.  Once settled, I will become a regular again. 


All the best, everyone!  :D  I have missed you.  :(  Be well.

Advice Re Low Carb, Moderate Protein, High Fat Diet?

30 December 2013 - 10:32 AM

After seeing numerous articles, TV shows, etc. on this topic my husband and I are going LCHF for several reasons:


1.  Sugar is inflammatory - I would love to lose this horrid 24/7 pain!

2.  Prevent diabetes and Alzheimer's

3.  Improve short-term memory

4.  Weight loss

5.  Become healthier - I eat WAYYYYYYYYYYYY too many carbs!


So, it seems as though this is sort of primal or paleo but yet not exactly.  I have seen this called the Swedish diet. 


Any tips and experience or favourite websites to share?  This is going to be difficult not having rice, potatoes, bananas, etc. but we are both very motivated to do this.  And I rather like the idea of bacon and eggs regularly!  :lol:
