It's About Substitution Not Denial

Losing weight forever is about substitution, not denial. We all love sweets, pasta, bread, and other bad carbs, but they are a challenge to eat when living low carb or on our VLCD (keto) diet. The paleo diet we teach doesn’t deny these foods but it limits their amounts, and it makes it especially tough to eat sweets.
If sweets are your thing, we encourage you to figure out how you can eat these foods. Google and YouTube are great places to search if you need a low-carb alternative to a high-carb food you like.
Below is a link to our Pinterest page which has several recipes for low carb and keto desserts. Low-carb desserts should be used as a “treat.” They are not something one should eat every day like dessert. Dessert is a concept you should rid from your memory. Dessert is a treat, not something you should eat every day.
