Hey guys, it’s me again. Rania, and let me tell you about this gem of a recipe I just discovered. Low carb Death by chocolate Bundt cake. If you’ve gotta go low carb with chocolate then this is the way to go! I really can’t believe that I’m able to eat such decadent sweets and call it low carb. It really does taste very close to a pound cake, its super moist and delicious and also quite low in calories with 264 calories a serving and only 5 grams’ net carbs. This recipe makes 16 servings and I know by now you are probably thinking each serving is one bite right? wrong! its quite big, so you will need a deep Bundt cake pan. If you don’t have one you can just divide it up and make two cakes, yes it’s that big.
Well lets move on to the recipe and let me know how it goes

Hi everyone, allow me to introduce myself, my name is Rania and I’m Hamada’s sister. I was very much inspired by my brother’s transformation and decided to make another attempt at healthy eating and weight loss. Historically, I have always struggled with my weight and have lost weight in the past through various means such as low calorie diets and very low calorie diets (less than 500 calories a day), which did work but is unrealistic and unsustainable for long term goals, and as expected I put all the weight back on and then some.
For the last year, I have had success with a low carb/ketogenic diet. I have lost 12 kg (26 LB) in the last year through this diet. I would not even call it a diet, it’s more of a lifestyle change. Surprisingly I consume more calorie wise than I have on any other diet. I still count calories and consume between 1300 to 1500 a day, and still manage to lose weight; Whereas, in the past I was on a 1200 calorie diet and would not lose any weight. I’ve always exercised, doing both cardio (spinning mainly) and weight training (body pump) and boot camps (mixture of cardio and resistance training). I consume between 20 to 25 Net Grams (taking into account fibre) of carbs a day. My diet is also Gluten free and has a reasonable amount of fat and protein.
I have found that with this way of eating I feel satiated for longer and rarely crave unhealthy fast food because I feel full; whereas on previous diets I always felt hungry and was constantly battling my cravings. The one thing I missed the most with this new lifestyle is bread, I love bread and I’m sure you do too. I especially miss buns which is why I have been experimenting with different recipes to make low carb buns, that can be used for everything like burgers, sandwiches etc. I’ve tried a few and so far this is my favorite bun recipe. I will be posting more variation recipes as I try them out so keep your eyes open for updates to the site.
