Hi and welcome to KetoDiet!
My name is Martina and I live in the UK. I hold a degree in Economics and worked in auditing, but I have always been passionate about nutrition and healthy living. I love food, science, photography and creating new recipes and I am a firm believer in low-carb living and regular exercise. As a science geek, I base my views on valid research and I have first-hand experience of what it is to be on a low-carb diet. Both are reflected on my blog, in my apps and book.
I started eating low-carb in 2011, shortly after I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s hypothyroidism. Since then, I‘ve been trying to figure out what works best for me and discovered some of the great benefits of low-carb eating. Following a low-carb, paleo-friendly diet plan helps me maintain a healthy weight while eating real food. I believe that true paleo is great, however if your goal is to lose weight, paleo is often not enough. You can learn more about my diet in this post.
KetoDiet is an on-going project I started with my partner in 2012 and includes KetoDiet for the iOS, KetoDiet Basic for the iPhone and Android. I've also authored several books which you can find here.
UPDATE: KetoDiet App for Android coming soon!
When creating recipes for KetoDiet, I don't focus just on the carbs content: you won't find any processed foods, unhealthy vegetable oils or artificial sweeteners. My recipes are all grain-free, sugar-free and gluten-free. Most of my recipes are paleo-friendly or include paleo-friendly alternatives. I always opt for grass-fed beef and butter, raw hormone-free dairy and healthy fats like coconut oil.
KetoDiet is for people who follow a healthy low-carb lifestyle. My mission is to help you reach your goals, whether it's your dream weight or simply eating healthy food.
