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 […]

Meatballs in tomato sauce with grilled aubergine

This time of the year I think aubergine works very well on the plate together with other seasonal food. Aubergine, meat and cheese are all together a nice mix of low carb, high fat ingredients and all part of the basic LCHF food. If you prefer a stricter LCHF version of this, take less of […]

Fat is in – sugar is out

The pointless fear of fat is fading away. Increasing numbers of experts do not longer blame fat for the obesity epidemic, but rather junk food with added sugar and other processed carbohydrates as the number one to blame for the obesity epidemic. BBC News reports new rules are proposed for US nutrition labels to draw […]

LCHF Oopsies

Generally bread is a big no-no when living the LCHF lifestyle. Bread is often full of flour and therefore high in carbohydrates. In a previous blog post about LCHF bread I mentioned UK food stores don’t provide any bread low enough in carbohydrates that would fit the basic LCHF food. Therefore, making your own LCHF bread is […]

A billion overweight in developing countries – time for a change?

The obesity epidemic affects not only the already rich world. According to a new report, the proportion of people with weight problems in developing countries has quadrupled since 1980. The development can be seen everywhere in the world. The chart shows proportion with weight problems in various parts worldwide. The report from a British think […]

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. Looking at the human evolution, the humans has evolved as hunter-gatherers and fishers, during the last two million years. Edible […]

Expert Committee: A Low-Carb Diet Most Effective for Weight Loss

Is LCHF the most effective lifestyle for weight loss? Earlier this week was a historic day in Sweden. After over two years of work, a Swedish expert committee published their expert inquiry Dietary Treatment for Obesity (Google translated from Swedish). This report from SBU (Swedish Council on Health Technology Assessment) is likely to be the […]

Delicious full-fat Turkish breakfast

Mediterranean food has often good LCHF food options and so does my local Turkish restaurant Clicia in Stoke Newington, North London. Here I’ve discovered some of my absolute low-carb high-fat favourites. One favourite is the still, I suppose you can say, rather liquid utterly delicious Turkish scrambled eggs, called Menemen. This is traditionally served with […]

Toxic Sugar

Why is sugar toxic and the cause of the obesity epidemic? A recent video called Toxic Sugar from the major Australian science program Catalyst, Is a great introduction on the true causes of the obesity epidemic. The program features professor Robert Lustig, science writer Gary Taubes and obesity expert professor Michael Crowley. The video correctly blames the […]

The Men Who Didn’t Make Us Thin

After last year’s 3 episodes The Men Who Made Us Fat, Jacques Peretti is now back with new episodes called The Men Who Made Us Thin. The episodes are about those men who actually didn’t make us thin at all. It’s about the men who made big fat rich profits out of making us think they would […]
