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:
- 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.
- 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.
- 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!
