What's to Know?


What the h*ck is LCHF?

LCHF stands for Low Carbohydrate High Fat. A LCHF diet means you eat less carbohydrates and a higher proportion of fat. Most importantly, you minimize your intake of sugar and starches. This dietary lifestyle has been recognized for about 150 years, and been used by various cultures for much longer than that.

But what about your poor arteries?

Studies have proven time and again that there is no link between dietary fat and dietary cholesterol with regards to heart disease or artery health in general. However, there is tons of proof that carbohydrates such as sugars and starches do cause those health issues.

So... Just give me the jist of what you eat

Basically, I eat meats, eggs, vegetables that grow above ground, natural fats (such as butter) and avoid sugars and starch, such as bread, pasta, rice, potatos, and grains.

Your explanations blow, give me some solid evidence!

I'm by no means an expert, I just enjoy cooking this way and have personally experienced very satisfying results.
