Permanent, sustainable fat loss (rather than rapid-but-temporary weight loss) is really the ultimate goal of most people trying out a diet.  Health is an integral part of fat loss however, and should not be ignored.  There is a compelling body of information that advocates low carb and/or slow carb diets as the key to fat loss, but also the key to controlling inflammation and enhancing mental clarity.

As a diet and health coach from 2012 through 2020, I have had valuable experiences in helping over 400 people to fat loss and health improvement.

Low carb, slow carb, and Mediterranean diets can fit into many types of fat loss approaches. Each of these approaches focuses on avoiding sugar and processed foods and focusing on metabolic health through proteins, good fats and vegetables.

Included in this category are recipes and guides for low carb, slow carb, keto and Pesco Mediterranean lifestyles.
