Hello and welcome to my low carb baking and dessert blog, Drop The Sugar. To learn more about this blog and what it has to offer, check out the “Start Here” page.
My name is Lisa and my story is similar to most who decide to follow a low carb or ketogenic diet; I needed to lose weight but nothing was working for me.
You see, I didn’t always have issues with my weight. But I’ve always had problems with my eating. Combine those eating issues with weight gaining medications, and it becomes an easy recipe for reaching obesity.
When I was thinner, I constantly felt starved even after having a large meal. Followed by the constant racing thoughts of food that would last all day long.
And having tried and failed many popular diets in the past, I always felt starved when I should feel full. I might have been thin, but I was living on diets in hopes of maintaining my weight.
I’ve known about low carb diets for many years. After having read up on the current research on ketogenic diets, I felt comfortable to try it for myself. Not only am I losing weight eating foods that I enjoy, but my issues of hunger quickly disappeared.
Drop The Sugar more or less became a passion project for me. I love to experiment with baking and low carb and keto friendly desserts. So creating this blog was just the natural next step for me.
Although I don’t write too much in depth of my weight loss journey here, I do occasionally talk about them in my posts. Though, you can also follow me on my personal accounts to keep up with my daily updates.
