For those of you who don't know what LCHF is, it's a Swedish diet where you skip all carbs (bread, pasta, rice, potatoes, etc.) and eat a lot of high fat food, like high fat milk, cheese, cream, eggs etc. Why? Because carbs turn into sugar in your body, which will make you gain weight and affect your heart and cause vascular disorders, while there are no known disadvantages to eat high fat products.
Take this for example:
Not only does this diet make you lose a lot of weight, LCHF is also said to help, sometimes even cure, people with diabetes and epilepsy.
Denmark, the only country I know of with fat taxes, should learn from us Swedes. ;) "Despite half a century of research there is still no evidence that natural saturated fat (like butter, eggs etc.) is anything but completely safe to eat." - From dietdoctor.com. And here are some other quotes to support this.
Read more about this here, where you find all reseach supporting the LCHF diet.
You can find many cook books, even with desserts, LCHF-style.
Why is LCHF good? Like I said before, carbs turn into sugar in your stomach, which causes bad cholesterol (there's good cholesterol too, which is in high fat products) levels to rise. Your blood sugar rises to the roof and then sinks just as quickly, making you tired and hungry again. Whereas with LCHF, your blood sugar levels stay the same, and you won't get hungry as quickly.
So then, what can you eat? The answer is: fish, chicken, meat, vegetables, cheese, eggs, and other high fat products such as milk, whip cream, butter etc. You should avoid carbs (obviously) and food containing a high amount of sugar, such as candy, cookies, and fruit. - Yes, fruit does contain vitamins and other healthy things, but it also contains a lot of sugar, and therefore it's better to eat vegetables than fruit.
I am way too lazy to write about it all, but you can read more about it here: http://www.dietdoctor.com/
To be competely honest, I do not follow the LCHF diet myself, but I might cut down a bit on carbs. And when I get older, I will probably stop eating carbs completely, to lower the risk of diseases. My mother and sister follow the diet though. Now, my mom must be proud of me for blogging about this! :D
