Switching to Low Carb High Fat is heaven.
In case you’re not familiar with LCHF, it’s a kind of paleo diet with the exception that on LCHF you eat a lot of fat.
The idea is that fat makes you feel full sooner so you eat less, and because the food doesn’t contain a lot of carbohydrates, your blood sugar doesn’t rise and fall, but stays where it’s supposed to be. That means your body does not make a lot of insulin, which means you don’t gain weight but lose some instead.
Cooking LCHF is quite different from normal cooking, but it’s absolutely delicious. Like for instance the coffee I get in the morning, which I make from
2 large tablespoons coconut oil or butter
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 pinch vanilla
1 cup full strong coffee
½ cup hot water
If you like your coffee sweet you can add some coconut sugar as well
Add all the ingredients in a blender and blend for a minute or two on high speed. Pour the coffee into a glass and enjoy.
I could easily get used to this!
