I thought I would see how succinctly I could describe what this Low Carb, High Fat (LCHF) diet is, (at least the way I do it) to those who may be unfamiliar. Here goes.
I eat virtually no sugar. (Including sodas, sugar in other drinks, deserts, etc.)
I eat virtually no grains. (Including breads, pasta, cereal, rice, etc.)
I eat virtually no starchy vegetables. (Potatoes, etc)
I eat little or no sweet fruits. (Citrus, ripe bananas, apples, etc)
I eat a "normal" amount of protein, about 100 gms./day (Beef, pork, chicken, fish)
I eat fat, about 70-80% of calories. (Mostly saturated and monounsaturated)
I eat eggs. (About 1-1/2 dozen a week.)
I eat full-fat dairy. (Butter, full-fat cream, hard cheeses)
I eat some nuts. (Mainly macadamia, but also some almonds, Brazil nuts, pistachios, cashews)
I eat some less-sweet fruits. (Blueberries, strawberries)
I eat very dark chocolate (usually greater than 85% cocoa)
I strive for quality food sources. (Dairy and beef from Grass fed cows, eggs and meat from pastured chickens)
I eat very little packaged or junk food, or food with labels containing more than 2 or 3 recognizable ingredients.
I never count calories.
I don't worry about getting it all perfect.
