I have eaten an all meat zero carb diet for 7.5 years. After about 3 years of eating a Zero Carb Diet, my life got crazy…really crazy. My stress level was high before, but it went through the roof for about 3 years. I learned what “burnt out” means. Read More
Notes: This can be made with any beef roast, I prefer chuck roast because it has more fat and the meat is more tender.
I use dry spices because fresh ones go bad in the fridge as I don’t use them often. Feel free to use fresh ingredients.
The mushrooms add great flavor, but I don’t eat those slimy fungi. 😉
This is also good without the cream cheese and sour cream. Read More

I am diabetic, been eating Zero Carb for 2 weeks and my blood sugar is still too high, why is this?
Since this question comes up a lot I (Dana) decided to post Caitlin’s answer, so I can direct people when she’s not available. 😉
This sometimes happens to diabetics in the early days of ZC (Zero Carb Diet). That level is high for someone in good control, but it is not dangerously high. For those that stick with ZC, their levels come back down within 4-8 weeks.
Two and a half years ago, at the age of 27, I was working as a personal trainer and was physically very active. However, I was forced to stop working towards the end of 2012 because I was experiencing debilitating fatigue and severe migraine headaches. The doctors I consulted told me that my symptoms were most likely due to excessive stress.
