For those who know me, I eat and fast according to my menstrual cycle and fuel and train my exercise sessions according to my menstrual cycle. I base my meals around a good quality protein source (be it eggs, salmon, chicken) to ensure I maintain muscle bulk – a crucial metabolic organ which helps regulate our metabolic rate. I don’t shy away from fat – we NEED healthy fats in our diet to support cell membrane and hormones. Remember – our sex hormones (oestrogen and progesterone) are steroid and fat based; so we need fat to support them. I always ensure that when I am eating the macronutrient carbohydrates, I try to get as much from an unprocessed source which is packed with fibre and phyto and micronutrients. From there, that’s when the lightbulb moment Light Bulb on Apple iOS 16.4 was born; the idea of A pinch of TLC © –  using food for TLC (tender loving care) and also TLC representing THE LOW CARB. So here, you will kind whole food unprocessed meals and recipes which are delicious.

Enjoy ; Lots of love and fat kisses
