About LCHF

Low Carb diets are known by many names, but not all are the same. I have chosen the LCHF lifestyle. The main goal on this way of eating (WOE) is to get the body in Ketosis. This forces the body to burn fat for fuel rather than glucose (carbs). The lower the carb intake and the higher the fat, the faster the body will switch to Ketosis. Burning fat will result in weight loss. Many worry about consuming too many calories on this diet due to the high fat, but in reality, you only need about a Tablespoon of a good quality fat per meal to reach a high fat content. Look for articles on good fats vs. bad fats coming up in this blog.

Similar “diets”:

The differences in these vary. In a LCHF diet, your main concern is lower than 20 grams of carbs per day, high fat and moderate proteins. This is for weight loss and to lower glucose levels. It also puts the body in ketosis.

The other various diets have different ideas about the number of grams of carbs, what kinds of carbs are acceptable, how much fat, what kinds of fats, what kinds of proteins, etc. They are all Low Carb diets. Do your own research to see if a low carb diet is right for you and which one you want to follow. The Keto Diet and the Atkins Diet will put your body in ketosis.

Information posted on this blog will mostly be for the LCHF diet. If information is given for other LC diets, notations will be given for which one.
