Please join us on Tuesday! We're live streaming in the morning (9am EST) and invite everyone to bring their before and after photos and talk about whichever diet method worked for you! <3 you! xo
This is the accompanying article for a scheduled live stream on the Ketogenic diet (Monday, September 28, 2015). What you’ll read below are our “intention notes” (our term for what we ‘intend’ to talk about, but conversations on a live stream do have a way of wandering off topic). The video version of the live stream will be posted on this page and on YouTube in a day’s time. If you want to join in on the conversation, here’s the link. https://bl...

Samantha Chang featured Veronica and I in her Jessica Simpson post! So. Much. Fun. #lchf #weight-loss #diet
 
I must be working too hard - feeling a little punchy as I head to bed at 4 am - but for some reason this absolutely tickles my funny bone. (You have to click through to see that Veronica and I are on the same page as Jessica Simpson!) Gotta love that Samantha Chang - she's one of the hardest working celebrity journalists I've ever watched at work... ‪#‎jessicasimpson‬ ‪#‎lchf‬ ‪#‎diet‬

Sixty (60!) pounds down! By allowing bacon, cheese, cream into my diet and kicking out the simple, anti-foods high in carbs.

My year of #keto diet is here (a work in progress): http://www.ketohybrid.com/year-keto-50-years-old/
 
It has been awhile since we posted a personal weight loss update. This is Mom (Laura Childs). She has never released the photo on the left but it will be aired on national television shortly and she can't hide it on her computer any longer. Next week we are on set with Clean Eating guru Tosca Reno. ‪#‎cleaneating‬ ‪#‎lchf‬ ‪#‎loseweight‬ ‪#‎weightlossafter50‬

Ditch the sugar and the weight just falls off. This stuff really isn't as sweet as we thought all these years... #strikesugar
 
Did you know sugar can go by 65 different names?
It might go by a bunch of different names on food labels but they all mean the same thing. Sugar.
Check out the picture below to find the names.
Have we forgotten any? Let us know!

Links to the FDA press release at the bottom of this article. Unfortunately, 50-60% of the population has no idea what to look for in these unsafe, packaged foods. (It's not the beef.) Please share and help your friends, loved ones and neighbors avoid these dangerous foods. #foodsafety #fda #news  
Last week the FDA announced that foods containing partially hydrogenated oils are not safe. No one listened, even though it is in 70% of the foods we eat.

Health Through Balanced and Responsible Nutrition
Introduction
Honesty, health, sustainability, integrity.

After years of living in the downtown, corporate, cut throat world I gave it all up for 17 Green Acres. Seventeen must be my magic number because that's the year I empty-nested (daughter went away to college) and is also how long we owned the farm (2 years after she left home.) Farm life provided a unique perspective on social responsibility, personal joy, and what it really means to be both gentle on the earth and with each others' hearts.

A few years ago I moved to southern Ontario, closer to amenities, my husband's work and our awesome daughter. Although we no longer had the space to grow our own food, we are living in an area known as Ontario's Garden with ample Farmer's Markets nearby.

However, that is not where the story ends! Our eating habits didn't change, our exercise didn't change (no less movement per day), but our waistlines did!

In the last few months we have been piecing the reasons for the weight gain together. I am a woman of 50, my daughter a young woman of 20 years of age. Both of us had gained over 30 pounds each.

When we finally solved the problem of weight gain, we formulated a plan to lose it based party on Paleo-inspired diets and largely on a low carb high fat diet (aka KetoHybrid.com). When folks started noticing the difference in our bodies, skin, hair, positivity, and energy levels they begged us to share our secrets.

So, we wrote a book together. Here it is if you're interested: Low Carb High Fat Diet by Veronica Childs and Laura Childs. It includes the theory and science behind our diet plan, a few weeks of meal plans, 80 recipes, and more.

Everything good you might have read about this dealership is true. We picked up our new Dodge Ram a month ago and love it! First of all there was a HUGE selection to choose from (that actually made it a little hard...choosing from all the different styles/colors/options/prices available), but most importantly our sales guy was a dream to work with! He (John) helped us sort out which vehicle we'd be happiest in for the long term, talked at length to us about resale value, warranties, features, and how any of those items fit or didn't fit our lifestyle. We never felt rushed, or that we asked too many questions, or that all of my 'nervous nellie' questions about financing and trade-ins were an inconvenience. After reading a bunch of reviews about many different dealerships (and already owning two Dodge trucks, a Caliber and a Jeep in the past from other dealers), we happily made a 2 hour drive to Peel to test drive, choose and finance/trade-in with this dealership. The dealership is a hub of activity but we never felt rushed or pressured. We'll be going back for a 2015 Jeep Wrangler in a few months. I'm keeping my eye on their mobile app and website for my dream Jeep.

Stopped in at this store on Sunday (yesterday) with a pile of questions, concerns, etc. The two guys on staff were very friendly, very helpful, very knowledgeable! They took all the time I needed - explaining twice if I needed clarification - and were patient. If I lived closer, I would visit more often and be a regular customer. Highly recommended!

I've been getting therapeutic deep muscle massage across Ontario for over 20 years - mostly for stress management, relaxation and general health, but also problems due to pulled muscles, aging, and repetitive use.Julie Leatherland, RMT is the best practitioner to date. She can manage a light touch as well as really working into the larger muscles. Facility is clean and welcoming, relaxing and conveniently located. I will return and return - for as long as she stays in business! A+

Really took the time with us that we needed as we were completely new to the area and had very specific needs and desires in our home purchase. Absolute attention to detail and follow up. When you have agents like these helping you find the perfect home, you can't help but feel that you are already at one with your new community. I will always work with Coldwell Banker for properties in Delhi, Simcoe, Port Dover and area as a result!

I'm thrilled that Google asked me to write a review of Tillsonburg Laser Clinic! I have been to this business perhaps 7 times over the course of 2 months and I like to call it my "fountain of youth". I was initially on the hunt for a Medi-Spa, high end skin care and treatments for anti-aging. What I found at Tillsonburg Laser Clinic was a small group of women offering a variety of related wellness services. Ashley (the medical esthetician - and I'm hoping I've described her expertise correctly there) - knows skin care better than anyone I've met in my travels and research. She explains everything in detail, listens attentively to your concerns, and works with you to help you achieve the desired outcome of your treatments. As I said, my time spent at the Tillsonburg Laser Clinic was related to an anti-aging facial skin program, but the clinic offers a variety of laser services (anti-smoking, laser hair removal, etc.) -- of which I have no doubt are also top notch in the industry. You'll also find a RMT (massage therapist) on staff - who, according to my daughter - is fantastic at working out kinks and sharing knowledge in that regard. To conclude the products and services are top notch and priced right. My search is over for the best Medi-Spa in the Tillsonburg, London, Brantford, and Simcoe area.
