The ranges are:
Underweight = 18.4 or less
Normal weight = 18.5-24.9
Overweight = 25–29.9
Obesity = BMI of 30 or greater
As you can see, at a BMI of 24.6, I am just barely into the "healthy or normal" weight range. However, I wear a size 4 in jeans and a medium or small top depending on the brand. Do I still have fat on my body? Sure, I do. I still have areas I am working on but, I don't know how realistic it would be for me to lose another 18 pounds. Here is a picture from last Sunday just for fun!
How, you ask, did I get my Red Velvet Cake so pretty and red without food dyes? With Cocoa Cardio! I love it! It has cocoa powder, beet juice extract and hibiscus extract in it. I use it a lot. I used it to make my Red Velvet Cake Batter Protein Shake. That post has the link where you can purchase it on Amazon.
RED VELVET CAKE
So, here is how I made this:
I melted 1 TBSP of butter in my crock.
I added 2 TBSP of full fat sour cream to the melted butter and whisked it together until smooth.
I added 2 drops of SweetLeaf Vanilla Crème stevia drops.
(You can use regular stevia and a dash of vanilla extract but, I had this so I used it.)
I added 1 egg and whisked it all together.
Then I added the dry ingredients:
2 TBSP golden flax seed meal
2 TBSP almond flour
2 tsp CocoaCardio
(You can use plain cocoa powder and add red food coloring if you don't have this.)
1/2 tsp aluminum free baking powder
1 TBSP xylitol (or sweetener of choice)
a pinch of Celtic Sea Salt
Whisk all of it together until smooth and microwave for 1 minute and 30 seconds. I made 2 of these for breakfast. One for me and one for Michael. It was so good!
CREAM CHEESE FROSTING
Oh yeah! I forgot I made a quick frosting!
This recipe is for 2 cakes so if you are just making one, cut it in half.
4 oz of full fat cream cheese (softened in the microwave)
2 drops SweetLeaf Vanilla Crème stevia drops
(or regular stevia and a few drops of vanilla extract)
1 heaping TBSP of powdered xylitol (or sweetener of choice)
Whisk everything together until smooth and put half on one cake and half on the other!
Isn't it delicious looking?
MMMMMMMMMMMMM!!!!!!!!! You know you want some!
