Cake is one thing I can’t live without! I am not a fan of diets as I feel there are not enough good things for me to eat and I know I would soon lose interest. But when I found that on Keto, I could still have all my favourite foods and make the Keto lifestyle work for me, I was more than ready to take up the challenge. My biggest challenge on Keto so far has been to learn to prepare all my favourite foods with new ingredients, cutting out the sugar and carbs. I think I am winning with KETO!
