Three Simple Tips to Shed Fat

Today it seems people are willing to go through almost anything to lose body fat.
Fad diets, pills and magical exercise equipment are costly and most often simply ineffective. In order to lose those pounds you have to have a basic understanding of the food you are eating, and how to utilize various forms of exercise.

There are three things to consider when losing body fat.

Diet watch your carbs in general and especially simple carbs. Avoid consuming lots of carbs in the evenings. Quite simply, to lose weight you must burn more calories than you consume.

Weight training having more muscle mass is a huge aid to burning calories and getting lean. Each additional pound of muscle burns 30 50 calories per day at rest.

Cardio to burn the most fat it helps to do it in a glycogen depleted state, such as immediately after waking (before consuming any carbs or fat) or right after lifting weights. HIIT high intensity interval training has been shown to be exponentially more effective at fat burning than endurance type (level resistance) cardio.

All too often people are looking for the hidden secret when ti comes time to lose a few pounds, when in reality, it just takes a bit of work and some basic understanding of diet and exercise.

Keto Cajun Trinity Crab Cakes | Peace Love and Low Carb

 

Crab cakes are one of those appetizers that my eyes naturally gravitate toward on a menu. However, it can be hard to find gluten-free keto crab cakes on a restaurant menu. Many of them contain bread crumbs, panko or something of the sort as a binding agent. In this recipe I took care of that problem and as a low carb substitute for breadcrumbs, I used crushed pork rinds to hold it all together. You can’t taste them, and they play the part of bread crumbs perfectly. Before you say “Ewwww” and click away from this page, I promise, promise, promise that you won't taste them at all. Not only do they help bind these keto crab cakes together, but they keep them from drying out as well. Now you can have your crab cakes and eat them, too!

These Keto Crab Cakes are a low carb nod to one of my favorite cities in the world – New Orleans! So, I felt it was only fitting to make sure they included the Cajun Holy Trinity – onions, celery, and bell pepper.

Loaded with lump crab meat, these low carb crab cakes are perfectly crispy and juicy at the same time. Before I made this recipe, I was on the hunt for a good keto crab cake and I just wasn't able to find one. SO, I just made my own!

Not only are these keto crab cakes perfectly high in fat and low in carbs, but they are also gluten free. Instead of using breadcrumbs or panko like a traditional crab cake might call for, I made these with crushed pork rinds.

I love to serve these crab cakes with my low carb Russian Dressing or Roasted Red Pepper Garlic Aioli.

Keto Cajun Trinity Crab Cakes | Peace Love and Low Carb
Cajun Trinity Keto Crab Cakes

Author: Peace Love and Low Carb

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 20 minutes

Total Time: 35 minutes

Yield: 8 Crab Cakes

Print Recipe

Description

This recipe yields 8 fairly large, entrée-sized patties. If you make smaller patties, you could easily get 16 out of this recipe.

Ingredients

2 tablespoons butter
1 large rib celery, chopped
1/2 cup chopped mixed bell pepper
1 shallot, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
sea salt and black pepper, to taste
1 large egg
2 tablespoons mayonnaise (get my homemade recipe here)
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon spicy brown mustard
1 teaspoon hot sauce
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 cup crushed pork rinds
1 pound lump crabmeat, picked clean of shells
2 tablespoons olive oil

Instructions

Heat a large sauté pan over medium heat. In the pan, heat the butter, then add the celery, bell pepper, shallot, garlic, sea salt and black pepper. Sauté until the vegetables are translucent and soft, about 10 minutes.
In a large mixing bowl, combine the egg, mayonnaise, Worcestershire, spicy brown mustard and hot sauce. Add the sautéed vegetables and mix until all the ingredients are well incorporated. Mix in the Parmesan cheese and pork rinds. Fold the crab into the mixture.
Line a large plate or rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. Form the crab mixture into 8 equal-size patties. Place the patties on the prepared baking sheet and refrigerate for 1 to 2 hours.
Pan-fry in olive oil, in a large skillet over medium-high heat, until the crab cakes are golden brown and crispy on each side. Be careful not to flip them too many times or they will fall apart.

The heart is one of the most essential organs of the body, the heat works by pumping blood to different parts in the body. To explain circulation this is what happens when the heart is at work, first the unoxygenated blood enters two veins of the heart called superior and inferior vena cava, then enters the right atrium then to a valve to the right ventricle then passes to the pulmonary artery to get oxygen from the lungs in the respiratory center called alveoli, and viola the blood then becomes oxygenated. Then goes through the pulmonary vein and left atrium and goes through a valve to the left ventricle and the left ventricle pumps the blood to different parts of the body through the aorta. The blood then contains red blood cells which contain oxygen and when oxygen reaches the cells it will aid in the cells functions. These complex mechanism, explains why the heart is important. That is why we need to take care of it by choosing the right foods and application of exercise. This article tackles the benefits of cardiovascular exercise and examples of it. This article is a key to have a health heart.
Cardiovascular exercise is in various forms of rhythmical exercise which is usually done for long periods of time. It is causes the raise of heart rate and makes it elevated continuously for a prolonged time. It is also called as aerobic exercise. Cardiovascular exercise involves works in the muscles of the body which increase the pulse and breathing rate above normal levels.
There are several benefits of cardiovascular exercises and topping these would be that it keeps the heart strong and healthy. Cardio routines are known to develop the muscular walls of the heart and help it to beat normally. Thus, it makes the heart pump a greater volume of blood for better circulation. In sum, cardiovascular exercising is all about keeping your heart efficient, strong and healthy. But at the same time, such exercise also helps strengthens the lungs and increase our lung capacity. Physically, they make the muscles and joints stronger while increasing calorie expenditure and metabolic rates. Cardio exercises at home or elsewhere is known to invigorate people, reduce stress and increase metabolism. Those who are having trouble sleeping and are always dealing with hectic schedules achieve restful bedtimes and better moods at work because of such exercises. At the same time, such routines help burn calories to help people lose weight.
Cardiovascular exercise can be done at home. There is no need to go to the gym, or to do it outdoors, you can just purchase a video of a cardiovascular exercise where it is done step by step. Some cardiovascular exercises you can do at home include walking and dancing. You can just walk at home by climbing a flight of stairs several times, or do some household chores. As for dancing, you can do this enjoyable cardio exercise while watching TV! Other stuff you can do to keep your heart healthy even at home are jumping jacks, push ups, jogging in place, doing leg lifts and squats, and doing crunches and step exercises.
So you see, keeping your heart healthy and fit doesn't have to be an endeavor solely undertaken outdoors or in the gym. Cardiovascular exercise spent at home is money-saving, but you should do this 4-5 times a week for about 30-60 minutes. Do the exercises routinely and you sure will have a good heart – and great figure as well!

Keto Russian Dressing

Keto Russian Dressing

This Keto Russian Dressing is pretty much the perfect condiment. Great as a dressing for salads, a sauce for Ruebens, and a dip for Crab Cakes, you name it!
Keto Russian Dressing | Peace Love and Low Carb

Keto Russian Dressing | Peace Love and Low Carb

 

If you aren't familiar with Russian dressing, then you have likely heard of Thousand Island dressing, and they are very similar in taste. If you have ever had a Reuben sandwich, then you have most likely had Russian dressing. I like it because it is lighter than thousand island and not quite as sweet. This Keto Russian Dressing makes the perfect dip, sandwich spread, or low carb salad dressing. I even like it on eggs.

This Keto Russian Dressing is amazing served with my Low Carb Reuben Chopped Salad and also my Reuben Stuffed Sweet Potatoes.

 

In addition to this keto russian dressing, check out some of my other favorite low carb dips, dressings, and sauces:

Avocado Ranch Dressing
Keto Alfredo Sauce
Sun-dried Tomato Garlic Dip
Keto Honey Mustard Dressing
Creamy Chive Blue Cheese Dressing

The Fastest Way To Lose Belly Fat

The Fastest Way To Lose Belly Fat

Have you been looking for the quickest way to lose belly fat?
There is a program that can give you a flat stomach in just two weeks. This program doesn't include shakes, pills or potions and the only cash outlay is $30 at your local sports store. This article isn't about trying to sell you some magic pill; it's simply showing you how you can lose that excess fat around the tummy.

This routine does require a stability ball that costs around $30 and you can get one from your local sporting store. These balls come in various sizes between 18 and 26 inch and you will need to choose the right size for your height. Studies have shown that people who work out with a stability ball build twice the muscle fibers as those who do regular crunches without a ball. Using a stability ball for your exercises will definitely help you to lose that excess belly fat much faster.

When you purchase a stability ball it will come with an instruction manual that will outline various exercises that you can do with the ball. The exercise instructions usually come with diagrams to illustrate how to do each exercise. In this article I will outline a couple of exercises that are great to do with the ball to help lose that fat around the stomach area.

The first exercise is called the Ball Curl. Sit on the stability ball with your hands behind your head. Next you want to roll your body down until your bottom is just off the ball and your lower back and middle are on the ball.

The next exercise is called the Pike and is a bit more complicated. Lie on the top of the ball with your legs together and the ball should be under your thighs. Keep your legs straight and then contract your abs and lift your hips up toward the ceiling, rolling the ball to the shins. Hold this for one second and then lower.

The ball is important in the plan to lose fat around the stomach but it isn't the only tool that you need. If you really want to lose fat fast then you also want to do some cardio workouts at least three times a week. With a cardio workout you should warm up for three minutes, follow this with three minutes of regular paced exercise and then two minutes of high paced exercise. Repeat the three minutes regular and two minutes high exercises for a total of 45 minutes finishing with two minutes cooling down exercises. Cardio workouts might include running, brisk walking, cycling or a cardio machine.

Lastly, you need to reduce your intake of calories. You can exercise all you want but if you continue to eat too many calories then you're not likely to lose any weight. You need to eat 500 fewer calories than you would to maintain your weight. So if the required calories to maintain your weight are 2700 then you should only eat 2200 to lose weight. The required amount of calories to maintain your weight will depend on your sex, height and age.

If you follow this program for two weeks you will see a remarkable difference in your stomach fat. You should lose at least an inch from your weight and lose around five pounds.

This really is the quickest way to lose belly fat!

Want to have more energy and strength, and look and feel great? If so, then the Method Pilates, which was originally developed by Joseph Pilates in 1921 but gained strong popularity throughout the world these days is no doubt a perfect option for you.

There are a handful of fundamental skills that everyone must learn before they can reap the full benefit of the Method. Fortunately, a number of new Method Pilates workout tapes are now coming out in the market. These new Method Pilates workout tapes are even available on the web and they provide great Pilates workouts that you can do even in the privacy of your own home.

Although not as good as a private Method Pilates class, the new Method Pilates workout tapes are convenient enough and much more affordable than taking a Pilates session. They also allow you to sample different types of the Method much more easily than you otherwise could.

Now, if you are serious with your search, I have here below some of the new Method Pilates workout tapes that could help you strengthen and condition your body. They are now available both online and offline.

The Method Cardio Flex Band Workout Video

The Method Cardio Flex Band Workout is a total body workout that focuses on the cardio and body toning. According to some reviews, there are multiple sections full of energy to keep your body moving through the entire program. And, as one of the popular new Method Pilates workout tapes, the Cardio Flex Band combines upper and lower body workouts with great music including salsa and mambo sections.

The Method Core Ball Workout Video

Here is another well-known product in the line of new Method Pilates workout tapes that promises to condition the core of your body. This video is deemed as a great way to work out your upper body, lower body, abs and core, while focusing on breathing and inner strength. Note that core is the center of the body. It is where the center of gravity of our body is located and where all movements begin. In this particular new Method Pilates workout tape, an 8 pounds core ball is used and the workout consists of three sections plus a bonus Ab Blast. With this video, you will feel great, strengthen your core and obtain the results you have been looking for.

A.M. and P.M. Pilates Mat Workouts

This product is actually a two-part fitness video is deemed perfect for those with a budy schedule who still want to fit in a daily dose of invigorating Method Pilates exercise. In the first part of this new Method Pilates workout tape, you are required to wake up with a 25-minute, low impact Pilates mat workout. Then, the second part of this new Method Pilates workout tape is designed for the evening session, just to unwind tense muscles and soothe the nervous system at the end of the day.

There are other new Method Pilates workout tapes available in the market these days, and these above mentioned three products are the top-rated tapes available. The importance of these new Method Pilates workout tapes lies on the fact that whether you are new to the Method or have been practicing for years, it is your mastery of the fundamentals that produces a strong, sleek and more flexible body. So learn the Method through these tapes.

Incredibly Tasty Paleo Peach Cobbler

Incredibly Tasty Paleo Peach Cobbler


In this video, I make an incredibly tasty paleo peach cobbler. It’s a delicious fruity dessert that will please anyone on a Paleo diet.
Recipe: https://paleocrashcourse.com/paleo-peach-cobbler/

For the best result, I highly recommend that you use fresh peaches. If you’re out of options, then tinned peaches will work fine too. Just make sure if you’re using tinned that you get peaches with no added sugar.

You can eat this peach cobbler on its own, but it also goes great with delicious coconut custard. Just try to keep any extras paleo friendly if you’re trying to be strict.

If you need a list of ingredients for this tasty paleo dessert, then you can find one right below. Altering any of the topping ingredients may lead to a dessert that isn’t very tasty.

Filling

500g peaches, sliced

Topping

2 eggs
¼ cup honey
¾ cup Coconut milk
2 Tbsp. Coconut oil
1 tsp. vanilla extract
2 & ½ cup almond flour
½ cup tapioca starch
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. baking powder
¼ tsp. sea salt

This dessert is entirely gluten-free, so it’s perfect if you’re suffering from gluten intolerance.

Personally, I will keep any leftovers as they reheat great the next day. You can also eat it cold and still be happy with the taste and texture.

Feel free to be creative with the fruit in this cobbler. For example, something like blueberries or raspberries will be a great addition.

I hope that you enjoy this Paleo peach cobbler and that this video was easy to follow. If you have some feedback, tips or anything else, then please feel free to leave a comment below or over at paleocrashcourse.com

Tart Cranberry Cooler

If you are looking for a crisp and refreshing low carb cocktail this summer, then you have come to the right place. This Keto Tart Cranberry Cooler is easy to make, and completely delicious.

Low Carb Cocktail Tart Cranberry Cooler | Peace Love and Low Carb

Low Carb Cocktail Tart Cranberry Cooler | Peace Love and Low Carb

 

One of the most common questions I receive here through the blog or on my Instagram is “Can I have alcohol on a keto diet?” Or “What are some good low carb cocktails?” In fact, I was asked these questions and so many questions like it, that I decided it was time to create some resources that clearly seemed to be missing in the low carb world. I started with this Complete Guide to Carbs in Alcohol, and from there, I decided to start mixing up some low carb drink recipes. Once I got started, I just couldn't stop, and I ended up writing a complete low carb cocktail book – Keto Happy Hour!

But before I get to that, let me tell you about this Low Carb Tart Cranberry Cooler. It is so crisp and refreshing on a hot summer day, or any day for that matter. It is quick and easy to make, with only simple ingredients. If you are not a fan of gin, it is also great with vodka or rum. If you you prefer a sweeter drink, simply add a little more erythritol.

Check out some of my other favorite keto cocktail recipes:

Low Carb Cucumber Mojitos 
Strawberry Margarita Gummy Worms
Keto Hot Buttered Rum
Black Beauty – Blackberry Black Pepper Low Carb Vodka Drink

 

Keto Happy Hour By Kyndra D. Holley

 

Before we get to this delicious low carb gin drink recipe, let's circle back to my book Keto Happy Hour! If you looking for other creative ways to enjoy a low carb cocktail, then this is the book for you. With nearly 60 low carb, keto drink recipes, and several low carb appetizer recipes too, this book is your go-to for happy hour, low carb party planning, summer backyard get togethers, or even just your idle Tuesday night!

I’ll show you how to indulge, while still sticking to your healthy living, ketogenic lifestyle. Think you can no longer have those delicious Margaritas at your favorite Mexican restaurant with your friends? or that you have to skip those boozy hot drinks after a day of skiing? Think again! I’m putting your favorite drinks back on the menu, the low carb menu, that is.

 

Whether you are craving a cocktail after a long day of work, or looking to entertain without feeling like you are sacrificing, this book has you covered. From mixers, to drinks and even some pub grub. It’s all in there! Mixing up cocktails should be fun and it shouldn’t come at the cost of your health and weight loss goals. Keto Happy Hour bridges the gap between feeling deprived and feeling mighty fine.

16 Ways to Burn Stubborn Body Fat

16 Ways to Burn Stubborn Body Fat

Eat less … lose weight?!? Here's the other stuff you can do to get leaner.

1) Don't diet to extremes. Reducing calories by 15-20% a day will almost exclusively burn fat while larger cuts in calories will burn a combo of muscle tissue and fat. Muscle drives the metabolism – calorie burning. If you're currently eating 3000 calories, reduce to 2400-2550, but do so according to smart guidelines like those laid out in The Living Health Weight Loss Audio.

2) Graze all day. Professional athletes and models eat all day long yet keep their total calories under control. The grazing method, 5-6 small meals, elevates the metabolism. Each time you eat, the metabolism increases, and over a 6-10 week period, that increase can parlay into another 2-3 pounds of fat loss.

3) Increase Protein. Carbs, protein and fat – are equal in their efficiency to be stored as body fat, but protein exerts a greater metabolic boosting effect than carbs or dietary fat. When calories drop, protein saves muscle which helps keep the metabolism elevated. Aim for 1.2 grams per pound of bodyweight daily.

4) Play with Carbs. Carbs help retain metabolic boosting muscle yet they can stimulate fat storage. Following a modified low carb diet – staggering your carbohydrate intake is one of the most effective ways to jump start your
metabolism and to burn stubborn fat fast (as outlined in Maximize Your Metabolism and the Living Health Audio Program.)

5) Go Backward. One reason fat loss comes to a halt; the body downgrades its metabolism to meet its dwindling intake of calories. The solution: dramatically increase your calorie intake once every 2-3 weeks. The one day splurge “re-sets” the metabolism by restoring thyroid levels, the calorie burning hormone that declines with dieting.

6) Skip the Late Night Carbs. Carbs eaten before bedtime are more likely to be stored as body fat so focus on lean proteins and fiber based vegetables like broccoli, cauliflower and salad fixings. The lone exception: if you train late at night and your goal is to build muscle mass, you'll need the carbs to replenish glycogen and support growth.

7) Go Fish. When calories are controlled, the inclusion of omega-3 fatty acids found in salmon, trout and sardines may promote speedier fat loss. One study revealed dieters who ate fish on a daily basis lost more weight than those who ate fish just once a week (Am Journ Clin Nutr 70:817-825, 1999)

8) Go Spicy. Red peppers, the spicy ingredient in Mexican and Indian dishes contains Capsaicin which can increase the metabolic rate by effecting the Sympathetic Branch of the Nervous system. Spiking your chicken dishes with red might be a small benefit or you can gulp 5 to 10 encapsulated grams of Capsaicin from your local health food store. (Journal of Nutrition 116:1272-1278, 1986.)

9) Don't Be Cardio Crazy! Radically reducing calories slows the metabolism short circuiting fat loss. Same is true with radical caloric expenditure. You know: 2 cardio sessions a day. Excess cardio slows the metabolism, promotes a loss in muscle and even can lower testosterone levels. For real results, stick to 4-6 sessions a week, 30 – 45 minutes at a clip and maintain a high level of intensity.

10) Separate Cardio From Weight Training. What happens when you do cardio first and follow it up with weight training? You don't build as much muscle density. How about cardio after training? You risk overtraining and the negative hormonal milieu that can stifle the metabolic rate. The best scenario; hit the cardio in the morning – on an empty stomach – get in a few meals and return to the gym later in the day to build muscle density.

11) Serotonin Control. Serotonin is a brain chemical that helps controls hunger. Guess what? It can take a nose dive with dieting. ( R.J. Wurtman and J.J. Wurtman, “Brain serotonin, carbohydrate-craving, obesity, and depression.” Advances in Experimental Medicine and Biology 398 (1996): 35-41.) One way to prevent a drop; smaller, more frequent meals.

12) Garlic Chicken! Mother Earth's flavor enhancer stimulates adrenaline and uncoupling proteins (UCP). Adrenaline triggers fat breakdown and UCP, located in metabolically active “brown fat”, increase calorie burning. Garlic also controls cortisol levels which can supports muscle retention while dieting. For best results use fresh raw garlic in your salads or on your other meals, but if you can't handle raw garlic then use fresh bulbs in you cooking or give supplements a try. (Oi Y, et al., Allyl-containing sulfides in garlic increase uncoupling protein content in brown adipose tissue, and noradenaline and adrenaline secretion in rats. J Nutr 129:336-342,1999.) (Wang HX, Et al., Natural products with hypoglycemic, hypotensive, hypocholesterolemic, antiatherosclerotic and antithrombotic activities. Life Sci 65:2663-2677,1999.)

13) Sip Green Tea. Green tea contains caffeine and polyphenols called epilgallocatechin gallate which have been shown to increase calorie burning. These special calorie burning compounds help burn an extra 100 or-so calories a day, about equal to a brisk walk. In maximizing fat loss, every calorie counts. (Dullo, A.G., et al., Efficiency of a green tea extract rich in catechin polyphenols and caffeine in increasing 24-h energy expenditure and fat oxidation in humans. Am J Clin Nutr, 1999. 70(6):p.1040-5.)

14) Fat? Yes Fat! To rip up, you have to eat fewer carbs, but on occasion – say once a week – you can add a little healthy fat, 2-3 tablespoons of olive oil, some red meat, walnuts or cashews. The reason? Dietary fat can make the body more effective in using and burning fat – as long as calories and carbs remain under control. (Thomas CD et al. Nutrient Balance and Energy Expenditure During the Ad Libitum Feeding of High Fat and High Carbohydrate Diets in Humans. Am J Clin Nutr 1992;55:934)

15) Thyroid Support. Irony of Ironies. When you eat less and try to dump body fat, a lot of times the metabolism adapts and burns quite a bit fewer calories. One way to get around the slowdown is with phosphates. A combo of 537 mgs of calcium phosphate, 107 mgs of potassium phosphate and 25 mgs of sodium phosphate given to strict dieters yielded a 12-19% more elevated metabolism than dieters who did not use phosphates.

16) Write It Down. This one seems simple, but it's one of the most overlooked tips in shedding fat. Dieters who record what they eat, meal by meal, day by day, not only make better choices, but cheat less and eat fewer total calories. Writing it down “keeps you honest” and is a tool for reminding you that getting lean is a day by day process.

Adopting A Low Carb Diet

Diets have appeared in many different forms, especially fad diets. Among the problems with these fad diets is that as well as often leaving you feeling very hungry they can also be unhealthy and only work for a short space of time. Research has indicated that the most effective diets are those that can be adhered to over long periods of time. In the case of fad diets, weight tends to be very erratic and while you may lose weight initially it is not unusual to put that weight back on and eventually increase your weight.

One of the huge benefits of a low carb diet is that you do not need to feel hungry. This may seem like it avoids the point of a diet, but it doesn’t. The aim of dieting is not to eat less but to lose weight or eat more healthily. The most famous of all low carb diets is the Atkins diet and this remains popular because it allows you to eat good-sized meals and is proven to help you lose weight.

The basics of a low carb diet are that you can eat as much food as you like until you are full, as long as you only eat the allowed foods. Generally speaking, this includes meat, cheese, fish, eggs and poultry. You are also allowed a certain amount of green vegetables each day. As well as being a healthy way to lose weight, a low carb diet will give you a sustained weight loss meaning you can continue to lose weight even after the initial push and you will keep the weight off once it is gone.

It will also lower your cholesterol and blood pressure as well as stabilize your blood sugar level. You should supplement a low carb diet with multi vitamins because your body will become partially starved of these essential vitamins.
