My Atkins/Keto journey is a lifelong balance between my health and my love for all food.

Hi, I’m Brenda. I began my Atkins journey on this very website in 2010. Over time, my brain needed to compartmentalize, so I moved all of my health content to a separate website. Now, it’s time to integrate my multiple loves back under one “brand”: me. This is all who I am and what I love to write/talk about. Above, under the link to this page, you will find all of my Atkins-specific information (starting weight, before/after/during pictures, and general information about Atkins and Keto). Below, you will find some of the Atkins/Keto friendly posts I have made over the years. I hope you enjoy and if you have any questions, send me a message.
