Lisa MarcAurele, Low Carb Yum

Lisa is the blogger behind Low Carb Yum, a popular keto-friendly recipe site that receives millions of views per month and has well over a million Facebook fans.

She started her blog as a way to save and share low-carb foods she was creating at home to replace her high-carb favorites. As a busy working mom, her motto has always been to “keep it simple” so she favors recipes that are fast and easy to prepare.

When treatment for Graves’ disease impacted her metabolism and resulted in fast weight gain, Lisa turned to a low-carb diet. However, she never intended for it to be a permanent lifestyle change. Any time she went off the eating plan, however, her weight would always creep up. That’s why she’s stuck to the low-carb diet for over a decade now.

Low Carb Yum was one of the first low-carb specific food blogs to emerge. And since 2010, the recipes on the site have helped people all around the world successfully follow a long-term eating plan low in carbs. Lisa’s mission is to convert as many people as she can to the low-carb lifestyle.

After the success of Low Carb Yum, Lisa was able to leave a 25-year engineering career to focus on blogging full-time. She lives in Hartford, Connecticut with her husband and three children.
