Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics: Stop Worrying about Saturated Fat!

Butter

The paradigm shift in nutrition is really happening and it’s moving ever faster. Even the industry-sponsored main association of American dietitians (AND) is now saying that saturated fat is probably nothing to worry about!

Instead they recommend eating less carbohydrates, especially less sugar. Pretty big news.

Here’s a nice summary by Dr. Sarah Hallberg (of recent TEDx fame): Earth Shattering, Pigs Flying, Hell Freezing Nutrition News

I’ve added Dr. Hallberg’s blog to our page with updates from great health blogs.

Avokadoaggmbaconsegel1600 2

What do you eat for breakfast on LCHF? It’s a common question and here’s another excellent suggestion.

This is the third breakfast idea from Fanny Lindkvist, who runs a popular Swedish blog and the Instagram account LessCarbs (now at 12K followers and growing quickly).

Avocado Eggs with Bacon Sails

This is a fun breakfast for the eye and good for the stomach. It’s appreciated by both mature and young people. Great for the weekend when you have a little bit more time in the morning.

“I Came Across Your Website & You Saved My Life”

Ani and his kids

Ani and his kids

Ani feared he would not live long enough to raise his kids. He had “the whole package” according to his doctor: Type 2 diabetes and just about every kind of risk factor for a heart attack, despite being only 43 years old.

His doctors just wanted to add ever more medication. But Ani went searching frantically online for a cure, as he wanted to live. And then he came across this website.

What happened next – in just a few weeks – surprised both Ani and his doctor: Continue Reading →

LCHF Breakfast by Fanny #2 – Salad Sandwiches

Sandwich800x906

What do you eat for breakfast on LCHF? This is one of the most common questions from beginners, but sometimes experienced LCHF eaters want new inspiration too.

Here’s the second breakfast idea from Fanny Lindkvist, who runs a popular Swedish blog and the Instagram account LessCarbs (now at 12k followers and growing quickly). Her recipes are deliciously simple and this is a good example.

Salad Sandwiches with Ideas for Toppings

It isn’t necessarily difficult to have sandwiches without bread! Choose a lettuce variety that is crisp and firm, preferably romaine or cosmopolitan lettuce. Rinse the lettuce thoroughly and use as a carrier for the toppings. In the picture I used the following:

Saladsandwichnutri
● 3 leafs cosmopolitan lettuce
● Butter
● Cheese slices
● Avocado
● Dried meat
● Tomato

Other great toppings are tuna salad and eggs.

The nutrient calculation is of course very approximate, depending on topping choices and amounts. Continue Reading →

A Higher-Fat Mediterranean Diet Reduces Risk of Dementia

A higher fat diet seems to be good for preserving our brains and reducing the risk of dementia.

Today there’s a new publication from the PREDIMED study. It has previously shown that a higher-fat Mediterranean diet with extra olive oil or nuts is good for preventing heart disease and improving diabetes. Now it turns out it preserves cognitive function as well: Video report / Study

People in the study who were told to instead eat a low-fat diet did worse on everything. They got more heart disease, more diabetes and more cognitive decline. Don’t eat a low-fat diet.
