About ‘Tis Yummy

Welcome to ‘Tis Yummy!

I’m Jack: Founder and creator of the site.

I’m a food-lover, healthy-living advocate, and consumer of all things science and nutrition (I’m a health scientist by training). It’s an irony not lost on me that I have also — until the last few years — been overweight for much of my teenage and adult life.

I started ‘Tis Yummy for a few reasons:

  1. I have tried (often unsuccessfully) to manage my weight for most of my adult life, and have found the ketogenic diet (KD) to be the most effective diet for me. So, I want to share my experiences, thoughts, and favorite recipes (that I found on other blogs) in hopes that it will help others find success with the KD as well.
  2. I’ve had some success with other diets, such as more traditional low-carb diets and paleo. Again, I want to share my experiences, thoughts, and favorite recipes.
  3. Even though I like to cook, I’m not great at it. I don’t create many recipes of my own, so I spend a lot of time finding ones I like on the interweb. I needed a place to store them all and thought, “what better place than a website!?”

I only own a few of the recipes currently on the site and provide credit and links to the creators that deserve the kudos. If I’ve missed an attribution, please let me know!

I do share my own original insights, professional experiences, and independent research to help others understand the science (or lack thereof) behind keto and other diets.

Thanks for stopping by!
