So, What is it?

All you need to do for a healthy Low Carb High Fat diet is cut down your starches and sugars and replace them with good fats and oils. This is in fact the way human beings are meant to eat. It is not a fad or a crash diet it is simply the most healthy way to fuel and nourish your body for health and fitness. In a well formulated LCHF diet most of your energy or calories should come from good fats such as olive oil, coconut oil, butter and animal fats.  Some of your energy will come from good carbohydrates, choose starchy whole foods over refined sweet things, and a little bit of your energy should come from protein; meat, fish, eggs, dairy, tempeh, tofu, hemp.

Low Carb High Fat Dinner

For a balanced diet, I recommend a 70:20:10 split of fat:carbs:protein in that order for a typical day’s intake. The rest of your plate should be brimming with a multi coloured array of vegetables and leaves. Check out my instagram feed for regular inspiration. The easiest way to get started is to make your breakfast a LCHF meal. Ditch the cereal and toast and go for full fat Greek yogurt with nuts and seeds or eggs, bacon, avocados and omelettes. Save your healthy carbs for lunch time meals. Healthy carbs like sweet potatoes instead of white, buckwheat and quinoa instead of white rice. As you get the hang of it, make dinner a Low Carb High Fat meal too.
