About the author

Mandy Pagano

Mandy Pagano is a recovering food addict.

As a no-nonsense wife, and home-educating mother of two, Mandy's passions in life are reading, music, and teaching her children. She has a life-long love of cooking, and is a self-taught home chef. Mandy's favorite cuisine is Southern-style, but she's also got a taste for spice, so Tex-Mex and Cajun/Creole dishes are frequently found on her table.

Mandy spent the better part of a decade obsessed with food and eating, and fighting a seemingly never-ending battle with her weight. Diagnosed with asthma and constantly suffering with severe hereditary allergies and respiratory distress, she was always sick and lived in fear of dying young. In 2015, she discovered Ketogenic living and made the life-changing decision to end her love affair with carbs once and for all.

In addition to losing over seventy pounds and ten pants-sizes, the Ketogenic lifestyle has allowed Mandy to reclaim her health and her life by eliminating her obsession with food and reversing the physical conditions she was battling. She no longer spends her days angry and exhausted, and doesn't live in fear of dying young. Keto has changed not just her life, but the lives of her husband and children as well, and all for the better!
