Saggy boobs. It happens to the best of us and there’s no denying that it’s a problem.

It is a truth universally acknowledged that age and gravity defy us all eventually. What once was tight and perky has a tendency to become loose and, dare we say it, droopy. Breastfeeding, fluctuations in weight, age and hormonal changes all contribute to changes in our breast tissue. It can be both embarrassing and annoying when these changes occur and your shape may prevent you from doing activities you enjoy or from wearing certain clothes.

To make matters worse, breast shape is not something that we really talk about is it? You might ask your friend how their sick cat is doing, or how little Robbie is getting on in Kindergarten but generally speaking you won’t find yourself casually asking, ‘So, are your boobs drooping worse than a dehydrated petunia?’ 

Well Auntie Stick Insectz is here to help you, I’ve been doing some digging and I’ve got just what you need.

Low Carb Snacks On The Go

So you’ve come here to find out about some tasty low carb snacks huh? Well before I give up the goods, here are some facts you should know about those slippery little critters we call ‘carbohydrates‘.

What is a carbohydrate and what does it do?

Carbohydrates are sugars and starches. We need some of these in order to provide our bodies with the energy it needs. Low carbohydrate weight loss programs are all the rage at the moment but no matter how much those programs tell you that carb is the new ‘c’ word, you still need to eat some carbohydrates to maintain a healthy diet. If you are following a low carb plan right now, you’ll know that it’s not too tricky to come up with low carb meals but finding snacks to eat on the go can be a little more challenging.

Here at Stick Insectz I’ve been checking out the hottest low carb snacks for busy people just like you and I’ve compiled them in one handy list. For more great ideas, please check out my Pinterest page which has a board dedicated to low carb foods and snacks. Continue reading
