ME! for years now. I get off of it occasionally but I always go back and lose the 3-4 pounds I gain in just a week to 10 days. It is an awesome diet.

I've been on it for 4 years and it works great until I cheat. I've had such bad cravings for the last 3 weeks which I haven't been able to control


I love this Almond Flour Pound Cake for when I have to have something sweet and fruit just wont cut it!


Ingredients:
1/2 cup butter (1 stick) softened at room temperature
1/2 cup full fat cream cheese
1 cup Splenda
5 large eggs, at room temperature
2 cups almond flour
1/2 cup Cake-Ability Baking Aid
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon lemon extract
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Cream butter, cream cheese and Splenda together, mixing well. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each.

In a separate bowl, mix almond flour with Cake-Ability Baking Aid and baking powder, breaking up any lumps. Add egg/butter mixture to flour a little at a time while beating. Add lemon and vanilla extracts.

Pour into greased 9" Springform pan, bundt pan, ring pan, (or 9" round cake pan) and bake at 350°F for 50-55 minutes.

You can change flavors for this cake by using different extract flavors and even food color if you like!

Makes 12 servings. 6.1 net grams of carbohydrate per serving.
