About Us

We started the keto lifestyle because we were both overweight and worried about the future of our health. We started baking keto friendly treats to have something delicious so not to stray from the keto way of eating. We then started baking for our friends and family because they loved what we made and how it helped them stay on track.
We are both nurses with over 40 years combine experience between us. Unfortunately, we have more than that with trying other “diets”. But when we started the ketogenic lifestyle, we knew we were saving our own lives. Now we want to help anyone that wants this too.

Hi, My name is Dawn  and I have a few more names, Mom, sister, nurse , fat!!!. Yep fat which is what I have struggled with most of my life. My mom always said it was in my genes, You know fat mom, fat dad , then they have fat kids and so the story goes.

When I was young I fasted my way to skinny. I handled my weight by only allowing myself to eat on weekends, this way of life helped me maintain a semi normal weight but of course was not sustainable,  I remember before I got married at the age of 18 I had fasted my way into a size 9 and looked great  that was august 1983 and by Christmas of the same year I was in a size 16 jeans and it only got worse from there. I struggled with my weight ever since, I have took pills , been on  nutrifast, weight watchers, low carb , low fat, I even had gastric bypass in 2001 and at that time I weighed 286.  ‘that worked for awhile, but is not an end all solution. I still gain weight and have a weight problem I have been as high as 260 since gastric bypass. Now that I am 52, I no longer have youth on my side. And my body is not as forgiving as it used to be. I have been struggling to find a lifestyle that I can live with and not feel deprived and hungry, This spring my roommate suggested we try a new diet called Ketogenisis. Guess what, I have even been on keto before, at age 14 my mom had to sign for me to do the diet because I was underage I have thought about Keto numerous times since then, because they gave me a food plan and I remember losing a lot of weight on the  diet and doing well. But I never believed I could do it on my own, and never thought to even look it up . Big mistake, this diet has been such a blessing to me, I have lost 23 lbs in about 2 months and I have lost 18 inches off my frame, I look like a new person but more than that is how I feel. Which is amazing and,  I have not exercised at all. Not to say that exercise is a bad thing, I feel I need to do some because I am flabby. But I hate to exercise and I hate when people say that is the only way to lose weight. I am here to tell you It is not. But I know  I need to exercise and I will look and feel better when I do , But that is another website. LOL. I am not a physician or a dietician, I am not a Keto professional. I am a normal everyday person ,like you wanting to look and feel better and not die an early death from a knife and fork. My hope is that through this website we can do this journey together, sharing stories, recipies and struggles and successes. I want each of you who desire to give this diet a try to join us on this journey .

Being overweight most of my life has been my cross to bear and the poor relationship with food has been the cycle I could not seem to break. I would diet, lose weight, gain weight, diet…on and on it goes.  The addiction to food was the worst; I would seek more and more to fill something in me that never seemed to be filled. Being a nurse, I knew at a deeper level that I was very unhealthy and headed for dangerous territory. You know that place:  short of breath, diabetic, high blood pressure, and all those things your grandparents have. I have tried low carb in the past but it never felt like a lifestyle. Then I tried a crazy diet called the ketogenic diet. But what has happened is I am changing, on the inside and outside. Yes, I have lost weight and inches. But I also have stopped obsessively thinking of food and craving the junk that has hurt my body for so many years. Instead of a diet, I found a lifestyle that I believe is saving my life. I want to share what I have learned and what I will learn with anyone that wants a new ways of eating, feeling, and existing!
