Not just any fat – saturated fat is key

During the last year in the UK I have noticed an increase in positive reviews over low carb diets. It certainly feels that the low carb awakening has started and that awareness about low carb diets is increasing. However, still many Brits seem to associate saturated fat with something you should avoid and the majority […]

Berries & LCHF

I have been asked my view on how berries fit within the basic LCHF food. Personally, I would say berries are okay in moderation – if you are not a super strict or sensitive person.
