Keto Pumpkin Spice Mug Cake Recipe: 

I’ve decided to try something new. Every day I see a post online that talks about how annoying it is to read a blogger’s life story before getting to the recipe. With that in mind, I’ve decided that instead of sharing some personal anecdotes I’ll start sharing the info you might want to read (like info about the keto diet). Doing this may prove to be more beneficial for both of us. Why? 

Google wants me to share content with you (written content besides just the recipe), and you need facts about keto. Hopefully, this will be a better way to share recipes in the future. 


Low carb diets have enjoyed a great deal of popularity because they work! They are highly effective for weight loss and have other essential health benefits. Here are some of the most frequently asked questions about low carb eating.

What is a low carb diet?

The Ketogenic diet is a very low-carb, high-fat diet. Carbs are replaced with healthy fats, and the reduction of carbs triggers a metabolic state known as ketosis, where the body begins to use fat for energy, instead of carbohydrates obtained from food. By depriving the body of carbs, which are converted to glucose and typically used as fuel, it is forced to use its fat stores instead, literally melting it off the body when it is in ketosis.

Isn’t low carb just another diet fad?

Absolutely not, it is a lifestyle change and is not something intended as a temporary fix or a quick weight loss scheme.

What are the health benefits of a low carb diet?

Low carb eating results in weight loss, which is often quite dramatic. Studies show it also reduces risks for cardiovascular disease. Eating low carb eliminates out of control cravings, stabilizes blood sugar, and consequently the appetite. Low carb eating supports healthy blood pressure, and helps manage diabetes and can prevent the onset of type 2 diabetes. The Ketogenic diet is used to treat several types of cancer, along with traumatic brain injury, epilepsy, Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, and polycystic ovary syndrome.

Note: As always, speak to your doctor before starting any diet.
