Why I went from a Low Carb High Fat Diet to a High Carb Low Fat Diet

plantbaseddietI have always been conscious of my health, studying and experimenting since I was in my twenties. There is no doubt that the topic of diet is very confusing. What is the most optimal diet for health, weight loss and stability and longevity?

Well popular “lifestyle” diet information ranges from low carb, high fat, moderate protein to high carb, low fat, vegetable protein to anything and everything in between. We have the raw food diet, the paleo diet, the starch diet and so many others to choose from. We have meat based, vegetarian and vegan diets. What diet is right? What is the best diet?

I don’t feel there is ever a one size fits all for diets, however I have been a vegetarian since my twenties and for both ethical and health reasons I have remained vegetarian. I recently watched the film “Cowspiracy” on Netflix, which lit a fire under me to move towards veganism. The problem was that I was a low carb, high fat vegetarian at the time and my diet consisted of a lot of cheese, eggs and butter. It would be difficult to be vegan on a low carb diet unless you ate mostly vegetables, nuts and seeds. That did not feel optimal to me at all, so I knew a diet change was necessary.

When I initially went low carb I weighed 137 pounds on my five foot eight inch frame and was feeling a bit dumpy. I had maintained a weight of around 130 pounds my whole adult life, after recovering from an eating disorder in my late teens. Now my weight was creeping up and I knew I needed to take action before it got out of control. I did some research and decided to give the “low carb, high fat” diet a try.

Healing Narcissistic Abuse and Finding the True Self

Great News!  My book Healing Narcissistic Abuse and Finding the True Self is now available in print for those of you in the U.S.  If you are not in the U.S. you can still get this book in E-book form.  

This episode talks about the information that is in the book, which is how to really heal from Narcissistic Abuse.  I talk about Narcissistic Personality Disorder and other disorders such as borderline and anti-social personality.  I also talk about empaths and codependents and how this whole dance weaves together.  Most importantly I talk about how to bring your attention and energy back to SELF where the real healing begins.

Healing Narcissistic Abuse and Finding the True Self Now Available in Print

healing-narcissistic-abuse-large_frontWhen I first began writing books I released my books in E-book only. The demand for E-books is high because people ordering books often want the information “right now!” But there is also a demand for a print book that readers can curl up with on their sofa or in bed at night without the distraction of electronics.

My book “Rebirth; Traversing the Dark Night of the Soul” was my only book available in print, but by popular demand I have decided to print “Healing Narcissistic Abuse and Finding the True Self.” This is a compilation of my many years of knowledge and experience working in the field of narcissistic abuse.

kaleahBecause of the size of this book (over 380 pages), and I am a small, independent publisher, I will need to increase the price to cover the cost of printing, however I am offering this book right now for the same cost as “Rebirth,” which is much smaller.

Healing Narcissistic Abuse and Finding the True Self covers the topic of narcissistic personality disorder, narcissistic abuse, cult behavior, energy, the sociopath, the borderline, the highly sensitive personality, the empath, Codependency, the trauma bond, adult attachment, psychic and emotional cords, shame, karma, forgiveness, the true self and much more.

Please consider ordering your copy of this book today and have an excellent resource for your healing and recovery, on your nightstand.
