Hi, I’m Megan, and I don’t eat bread.
Well, it’s more than just bread. I don’t eat rice, wheat, corn, lentils, soy, sugar, or any byproducts of the aforementioned “food” items. I stopped eating these items in April of 2012, after a years-long battle with weight fluctuations, hormonal issues and general low-self esteem. After going no-grain and no-sugar, my energy lifted, I started losing weight, and…well, you get the picture.
I initially started my low-carb lifestyle by eating ketogenically, which essentially means high fat, moderate protein, low carbs. Source and quality of fats and proteins are not as important in this way of eating—the main idea is to simply avoid carbs and blast through fat.
It changed me, and my view on modern life, and I haven’t looked back since.
I’ve since made the transition into paleo/primal eating. I am by no means strict in my paleo-ness: I still have the occasional beer, piece of cheese or sweet potato fries. Strict paleo eaters are invited to squabble with me—I’d rather have some semblance of sanity at the risk of forfeiting a ripped six pack or super-human strength.
I was born in Colorado, grew up in Minnesota and successfully made my way back to Colorado after graduating college with a degree in English (go ahead, laugh). I work here as a Content Coordinator for a web development company downtown. Basically, that means I write a lot and edit a lot. When I’m not doing that, I’m planning my wedding (May 18), driving to the mountains, enjoying the company of my fiancé and my cats, immersing myself in music or flipping through the new picks on Netflix. I also make handmade soaps and enjoy learning how to create new things from scratch.
I’m always interested in meeting and talking with new people about Paleo or Ketogenic living, health, fitness, DIY projects and more. Drop me a line and we’ll chat.
