I’m Rene Averett and I am a food-aholic! I’ve had a lifelong love affair with food, but that doesn’t mean that I have been a gross over-eater all my life. I have obviously eaten more food than my body needs most of the time, but I haven’t over-indulged on a regular basis. Just cutting back on calories hasn’t worked well for me as I don’t regularly consume over 1200 calories a day. So, why was I unable lose the weight?
That’s what this whole blog is about. My journey, my weight loss and how I discovered the keys to making this work for me. Apart from being a yo-yo dieter for most of my life, I have also worked with computers from the early stage of huge mega-computers to the small tablets we now use daily. I am also a writer, making my living as a technical writer for the last decade or so of my employment with a gaming manufacturer in Reno, Nevada. Besides technical writing, I am also a novelist and do editing for other writers. I am now working on publishing a couple of novels this year under my pen name.
I am retired and live with my long-time roommate PK, two cats and a dog in south Reno, Nevada. I enjoy writing, reading, a bit of gardening and, obviously, cooking and creating recipes that are delicious and low in carbohydrates,
