So, before we get too far into 2018, we’re going to take a moment and look back at the most popular and powerful posts from 2017.
This post highlighted 33 fat bomb recipes from food bloggers across the net. It was an incredibly popular piece that offers many new ideas for anyone that enjoys fat bombs. The recipes included sweet and savory options, including flavors like Coconut Lime, Jalapeno and Orange Chocolate (not all in the same recipe, obviously!).
This piece addressed a common issue many people face – the keto (or low carb) flu. We approached many bloggers for advice about how to avoid or minimize the symptoms. The results were fantastic.

Who doesn’t love chocolate? Dark chocolate is even being considered a superfood now – and it has many health implications. This guide focused on those aspects and why chocolate is so beneficial. It also highlights some of the best brands and their nutritional profiles. That information makes it easy to choose chocolate that’s going to taste great and provide benefits.
Cooking with low carb flour is often frustrating and confusing. We aimed to create a single comprehensive guide about the options out there – and succeeded. This post has been an incredible success and links out to many amazing recipes and resources from other writers.
As 2017 progressed, we became particularly interested in keto and low carb as lifestyle approaches. This recent post considered the two styles in detail, including their differences and similarities. We were interested in seeing which situations each approach applies to. After all, there is no one-size-fits-all answer.
Looking to 2018
In 2017, we had a strong focus on weight loss and health, including topics like keto, chocolate, cinnamon and autophagy. Many other topics didn’t make it onto this list, including gut health, coffee and overall lifestyle changes.
