Hi! My name is Janelle and I am a wife, mama of 2 beautiful girls and keto+low carb lover. I love sharing easy, delicious recipes that never make you feel like you’re “on a diet.”
I started this journey about 4 years ago after I had my first daughter. I was 35 pounds overweight, struggling with postpartum depression and feeling uncomfortable in my own skin. I knew I had to make a change when I noticed I was avoiding social gatherings and photos.
After trying many failed diets, my husband and I decided to try Atkins, which is low carb and very similar to keto. Right away I dropped 15 pounds and started to feel like myself again. Over the next year I lost a total of 35 pounds. The baby weight was gone – yay!
Soon after, I got pregnant with my second daughter and I was advised by my OBGYN to stop doing keto+low carb because ketones can cross the placenta and affect the baby. In January 2020, after I had my baby and stopped breastfeeding, I was ready to jump back into doing keto and low carb again. I am currently 22 pounds down since February and still on my weight-loss journey feeling incredible!
I started this community because I want us to motivate one another and keep each other accountable to become the best versions of ourselves for ourselves!
We are in this together and I’m so happy you’re here.
