Hi, my name is Kim, and I am the face behind the Eat Fat Lose Fat blog. I started my keto diet journey in 2012 after researching the best ways to handle my PCOS, adrenal fatigue and other metabolic issues that I have. I have currently lost 60 pounds in my keto journey so far.
Even though I blog about diet and food I am not a professional foodie, but a home cook, someone that enjoys cooking but never wants to do it for a living. I am the type to cook when upset, coming down with a cold, or when I am stressed… cooking is relaxing to me and something good (usually) comes from it!
Nutrient-dense and keto eating is personally important to me because I need all of the nutrients that I can get. I had weight loss surgery in 2001 and lost 200 pounds, and as a result of that became severely anemic and had a shortage of other vitamins and minerals in my blood. Eating “real food” got my eating back on track. I made sure that everything that I put in my mouth was the best quality that it could be. It worked, and my anemia has been corrected and my vitamin/mineral levels are normal, partly due to the methods that I talk about in this blog. I am not a fanatic about eating the ‘right’ food all of the time, that kind of behavior just stresses me out. But if I’m eating healthy home-cooked meals 80% of the time, that is an amazing thing for me, and a huge improvement.
My goal with this blog is weight loss, healthy living, learning more about cooking, and how to incorporate real homemade food more into my lifestyle so that it becomes a habit. I am wanting to share what I’m learning and I don’t judge what others are doing. There is not ‘one’ right answer, we all have a path that we need to find. Take what you like, and leave the rest!
