Zuppa Toscana – Italian Gnocchi Soup

Month two is over on my low-carb journey. I’m a little disappointed that the scale hasn’t moved BUT I have been lifting weights 4-5 times a week. I feel stronger…as little as it sounds, it’s easy to get out of bed or up off the couch. I can feel muscle definition and I don’t get as tired as I used to!

2 month progress

2 month progress

January 1st to now:

  • Upper Arms: 16″—> 15″
  • Waist: 40″———-> 38″
  • Hips: 48″———–> 46″
  • Thighs: 29″———> 27″
  • Calves: 18″———-> 17″

So now that the weigh-in is over let’s get on to the recipe! I did a guest post for the wildly talented Martina over at The KetoDiet Blog. If you havent checked out her site and App you totally need to! She has so many amazing recipes, helpful low-carb info and quite a few fantastic cookbooks!

If you’ve tried my Keto Garlic Gnocchi you have to try this recipe for Zuppa Toscana! It’s basically gnocchi soup with sausage and kale (kinda like the soup at The Olive Garden!)

  1. Don’t get discouraged. You have lost so many inches in just 8 weeks and you can really tell in your before and after shots. I did the low carb about 10 years ago and lost sooo much weight. I did exercise along with it and that can really help shed the extra weight. I have gained a lot of weight in the last year so I am back on the program. Your recipes are helping!! Keep it up!

  2. I agree with Heather. Don’t worry about weight loss when you’re losing inches. And you definitely look thinner in your two month picture. Plus with your weightlifting, you are, undoubtedly, adding muscle, which weighs more than the fat you’re replacing. That’s why the scale isn’t moving! Looks like you’re doing a great job!
