Do you think that it is really possible to eat well, not be hungry, and at the same time lose weight and maintain the general health of your body? We present to you the LCHF (Low carb- High fat) diet that is all that.
You won’t believe it, but this diet involves a significant amount of fat with reduced carbohydrate consumption, no counting of calories, no supplements, no starvation, and experts claim that it is really effective.
Basics of LCHF diet
The most important item of this diet is to eat less carbohydrates and increase fat intake, and the intake of sugar and starch should be reduced to a minimum or eliminated altogether. This means that you can still be full, eat a variety of foods, but lose weight.
Allowed foods include meat, fish, eggs, vegetables that grow exclusively above ground, and natural fats such as butter.
Bread, pasta, rice and potatoes are what is not allowed, as well as foods that contain sugar and starch.
The LCHF diet does not support measuring, calorie counting and starvation. She advocates that we eat when we are hungry and not be fooled by industrially processed food labeled “fat-free”.
From a scientific point of view, this diet is effective because eliminating sugar and starch from the diet stabilizes the level of sugar and insulin, and the hormones that store fat in the tissue decrease. This encourages the body to burn calories as well as possible.
What to eat?
Meso – of any kind including beef, pork, chicken,… You should not even avoid the fatty part of the meat, nor remove the skin from the chicken. The only thing recommended is to look for meat from organically raised animals.
Fish and seafood – All kinds of fish and seafood are allowed, but avoid frying them rolled in bread crumbs.
Eggs – in all possible ways, preferably domestic.
Natural fats – to make the food taste better, enrich it with butter or sour cream for cooking. Use coconut or olive oil for cooking.
Vegetables – all types of cabbage (cauliflower, broccoli, prosciutto), asparagus, zucchini, eggplant spinach, mushrooms, cucumbers, lettuce, avocado, onions, peppers,… Avoid eating root vegetables that grow underground because they are usually rich in starch.
Dairy products – It may sound strange, but dairy products with a higher percentage of fat are recommended, which means that you can eat butter and sour cream, but avoid milk and products with added flavors, which usually contain sugar.
Nuts – Replace unhealthy snacks with them while watching TV.
Berry fruit – Eat occasionally with small moderations.
What is forbidden?
Sugar – Forget about sweet drinks, sweets, cakes, pies, chocolate, ice cream and breakfast cereals. It is also recommended to eliminate artificial sweeteners.
Starch – bread, pasta, potatoes, rice, snacks, muesli are a forbidden zone. Even the use of whole grains is not recommended, and you can enjoy root vegetables (carrots, celery) only occasionally.
Margarine – because of very bad nutritional values and because of bad taste.
Beer – This drink is full of carbohydrates that have great absorption power.
Fruit – Unfortunately, fruit is only a natural sweet and you should avoid it, but you can occasionally treat yourself to some fruit.
In the moments when you want to relax, feel free to treat yourself to a glass of dry wine or a strong drink (whiskey, cognac, vodka, cocktails), but which do not contain sugar. You can also cheer up your palate with a cube of dark chocolate with at least 70 percent cocoa.
Drink unlimited amounts of water, tea and coffee, of course without sugar, but you can use full-fat liquid sour cream or milk.
