Julie Fox McClureHi! I’m Julie Fox-McClure. I have lived in the beautiful countryside of Northern Vermont for the past two decades on a 20-acre mini-farm with my husband Hilary and my children Zoe (19) and Owen (14). We’ve raised an assortment of animals over the years, along with a large vegetable and herb garden. I have been a food professional, baker, sometime chef and caterer for my entire adult life and have a culinary degree from New England Culinary Institute.
I’ve always struggled some with my weight, especially after the birth of my second child when I was 42. I also acquired an autoimmune digestive disorder called lymphocytic colitis. My husband has been working with a paleo diet since 2001 and it had been very good for him, so at the age of 44, I started with paleo, which helped with some digestive issues but not my weight. I then enhanced my diet with low-carb and keto. My digestive problems cleared up without drugs, and fifty pounds melted off and stayed off.
