The theories behind Low Carb High Fat, abbrevated as LCHF, are simple and easy to comprehend. As LCHF says, you should go low on carbohydrates and high on fat! A lot of people unfortunately only go low carb, and avoid to increase the important and needed fat intake drastically. Mostly because it in the beginning seems so awkward. The core of this lifestyle is to change your body’s fuel from being carbohydrates to being pure and healthy fat.
I have followed the LCHF diet for more than two years with exorbitant results. I will consequently in this blog present the newest research, and what can verify the amount of the healthy fat in our diet. While following the LCHF lifestyle you will never again feel hungry. It’s documented that you burn your fat by eating fat, just follow simple rules and stay calm. Wellbeing and weight loss will be your reward.

More About The Low Carb High Fat Theories
If you like to read more intensively about the research behind this lifestyle, and about the Low Carb High Fat theories, please visit dietdoctor.com, which is my favourite website when it comes to details about LCHF.
This is what the DietDoctor says; “A low-carb diet means you eat fewer carbohydrates and a higher proportion of fat. Most importantly you minimize your intake of sugar and starches. You can eat other delicious foods until you are satisfied – and still lose weight. A number of recent high-quality scientific studies shows that a low-carb diet makes it easier both to lose weight and to control your blood sugar. And that’s just the beginning.”
So no starch, sugar, pasta, white bread, rice, beans and potatoes (see a list of what to avoid here and please stop counting calories! If you follow the simple LCHF advice, your blood sugar will stabilise and you will slowly – but don’t worry, you WILL – automatically lower your levels of insulin, the fat-storing hormone. This increases fat burning and makes you feel more satiated. So all in all you will move yourself to a feeling of happiness with what life gives you, but keep in mind, you should stay strong when friends challenge your fat intake. This is most likely to happen as people often find the LCHF meals unattractive due to their own habits and to the official guidelines from the health authorities, which still need adjustments.
Our fat intake must be high, but it is important it is the best quality. Please always remember never to let go of the beautiful fat in your food. Some persons might feel bad about the fat. I love cream, butter and lard, and I love that it’s part of my daily life now. To stick only to a low intake of carbohydrates is not good enough.
Live Low Carb High Fat and enjoy an improved quality of life!
