For me, nothing beats a gorgeous rib-eye or sirloin steak, cooked so that the meat is rare but the fat is translucent and brown on top. When eating out, desserts are usually off-limits for obvious reasons, so let’s thank the French for introducing the custom of finishing a meal with a cheese course. Low carb high fat means you don’t have to follow that cliched advice of removing skin from poultry, and chicken does taste so much better for it! So we can’t have traditional sugary desserts when on a low-carb diet, but who cares when we can have double cream instead! Duck breasts are another example of a food that is clearly meant to be eaten with skin on – discarding it makes the whole experience plummet dramatically. Egg yolks are obviously an integral part of the egg, and in my opinion much more fun than the whites!
I realise that this post is a shameless ode to fat, and reading it alone is probably enough to give a heart attack to a low-fat advocate. LCHF works if you are very strict keeping your carbs low – then you can indulge in having high fat foods. LCHF suppresses appetite so although you would eat high-calorie, high-fat foods, you would be likely to consume less calories overall.
When on strict LCHF, your body will eventually switch into ketosis, and start burning fat for fuel instead of carbs.
By the way, in less than a year on this diet, I have lost 130 pounds, dropped all three blood pressure meds I was on, and gained such good control of my blood sugar, that I now have a lower A1C than many healthy, no diabetic people.
Fiber — or what Grandma called roughage — is found in fruits, vegetables, legumes and whole grains. High fiber foods take longer to eat, allowing your brain to catch up with your stomach and know when you’re full. When you eat high fiber foods, you tend to stay full longer, so you don’t eat as much.
Another benefit of high fiber foods is that they tend to be more natural and less processed than many other foods.
Next time you’re at the grocery store, pick a couple items from your list and check labels to find the brand with the highest fiber.

I believe people want to be healthy and lose weight but it’s too darn hard because we’re lazy. So if you’re lazy too, I’ve created some things to make losing weight and living healthier easier for you.
No food alone could ever cause us to lose weight, there is no such thing as the best single weight loss food.
Losing weight can appear to be a relatively simple affair- reduce your calorie intake to the point where you consume less calories than your body uses and you will lose weight. As far back as the Stone Age, nuts have been a part of our diet with evidence of its regular consumption from archaeological sites dating back over 780,000 years.
One of the most confusing aspects of understanding calories is that what we see on food labels doesn’t always reflect the true biologically available energy content of a food.[6] For the most part, calorie values are relatively accurate but there are some exceptions and nuts happen to be one of them. The discrepancy lies in the fact that not all of the calories in a protein can be fully used by our bodies. This inability to digest all the calories from nuts comes from the resistance of the parenchymal cell walls of nuts to the gut enzymes and bacteria that break down our foods. Nuts aren’t like processed snacks that are designed to be easily eaten as they do require some degree of chewing to crush them into pieces small enough for us to swallow. While pure peanut and nut butters are listed as a healthy additions to a wholesome diet, as we have mentioned previously, there is something to be said about the mechanics of chewing to help us get the most benefits out of eating nuts. One of the most important, if not the most important aspects of any diet is sustainability, as results can only occur if you are consistently able to adhere to an energy reduced diet.[23,24] Weight loss regimes that center only around bland and unpalatable foods are always doomed to eventual failure as we are by nature designed to enjoy the foods we eat. Add to these five important weight loss factors, the bad cholesterol (LDL) lowering effects of nuts[45] and it is clear that nuts should indeed be an integral part of any diet designed for optimal health and weight management.

Healthy fat increases your HDL (good) cholesterol, which helps remove plaque from your artery walls. Eating more fat keeps you fuller, longer: the key to reducing your daily calories without feeling deprived. Low carb dieters require varying levels of fat, protein and carbs to meet different weight loss goals. It’s high lauric acid content boosts your metabolism, and helps support healthy thyroid functioning. Coconut Oil increases absorption of calcium and magnesium, helps remineralize teeth and improves overall gum health.
The natural, saturated fat in butter helps your body absorb the healthy nutrients in vegetables. Olive oil is full of antioxidants and vitamin E, adding protection against certain cancers and signs of aging. Loaded with vitamin A and potassium, cream cheese is one the most flexible high fat low carb foods.
Use it to thicken sauces, as a spread and as a main ingredient in Atkins approved desserts. A few tablespoons of sour cream gives your fat ratio a boost, helping you get into ketosis quickly. Adding coconut to your high fat low carb foods boosts HDL (good) cholesterol, and decreases your risk of cardiovascular disease. Try unsweetened shredded coconut raw, add coconut oil, flavor (vanilla, lemon, cocoa, etc.) or use in low carb recipes.
Avocados have high amounts of fiber, are sodium and cholesterol free, contain omega 3 fatty acids, and are rich in vitamins A, C, D, E, K and the B vitamins (thiamine, riboflavin, niacin, pantothenic acid, biotin, vitamin B 6, vitamin B 12 and folate)— as well as potassium. Sprinkle avocados with herbal seasoning and combine with cooked egg yolk for delicious deviled eggs. Spread cream cheese between two slices of cheddar cheese for an instant high fat low carb snack. Place thick, Canadian bacon slices in a muffin tin, fill with cream cheese, egg, bacon, spices and veggies, then bake.
Organic Raw Cacao Nibs are “nature’s chocolate chips” boast a strong, raw dark chocolate flavor.


Snack on these sweet dark chocolate nibs or use them in recipes instead of sugary milk chocolate chips. Viva Labs Cacao Powder is made from Criollo cacao beans – the highest quality cacao without bitterness.
Viva Labs Cacao Powder is unprocessed, retaining important nutrients like magnesium, calcium, iron, fiber and protein. Antioxidants in cacao provide cellular defense against the effects of free radicals, improving the look of skin and promoting cellular repair and rejuvenation. Eggs provide the perfect ratio of protein to fat, and have more essential vitamins and minerals per calorie than almost any other food. Eggs are one of the best sources of choline, a substance your body requires to break down fat for energy. Almost half of the fat in beef is a monounsaturated fat called oleic acid— the same heart healthy fat that’s found in olive oil. The saturated fat in beef actually decreases your heart disease risk— either by lowering LDL (bad) cholesterol, or by reducing your ratio of total cholesterol to HDL (good) cholesterol. Packable snack: Sliced, high fat meats are easy to roll around low carb veggies or cream cheese chicken salad. If possible, choose locally farmed grass-fed beef for higher amounts of iron, zinc and B vitamins.
Cook burgers in butter, add cheese and avocado, and spread some sour cream on top for a juicy, high fat low carb meal.
Tommy photographs and describes daily high fat low carb meals and menus, complete with fat, protein and carb counts on his blog, Eat Low Carb High Fat. Interactive digital and audio keto meal plans slide you into fat-burning mode, without needing to go strict low carb! Yes The apple with peanut butter and trail mix, I like my snacks crunchy- although the banana dipped in chocolate pudding sounds like it’s worth a try. Okay I found this blog on pinterest…I just saw the homemade trail mix, and what do you know I had everything in the pantry to make it! I just found your blog through Pinterest, and I love all of your snack ideas (and your pictures)! I could literally have this every day, it would make me very happy (maybe one day when I am rich and own a cattle farm). I prefer mine unsmoked and have a rather idiosyncratic method of cooking it in the oven – it takes much longer than frying or grilling, but is well worth the wait.
Many British restaurants now include this option to their dessert menus, and there are plenty of British cheeses that can rival their continental counterparts. Double cream plus a bit of sweetener forms a base of many low-carb sugar-free desserts, and definitely fills the void.
When on LCHF you don’t have to put up with any nonsense that advises you to discard the yolks and have just the whites.
If you are not bothering to restrict carbs, then eating extra fat as described above is likely to lead to weight gain.
Weight loss rate varies by individual, but keto diets work much faster than other types of diets, so hopefully you will notice the changes very soon. Weight loss is the result of the energy consumed from all various foods within the diet, and that a diet's total energy must be lower than the energy used by the body.
All The Calories From Nuts Don’t CountHow Nuts Help You Lose Weight- 2.The More Nuts You Eat The Less You EatHow Nuts Help You Lose Weight- 3.
Easier said than done for a mountain of reasons, but this concept of striving for a negative energy balance is nonetheless the key rationale behind most weight loss endeavors. Recently, nuts have been recognized as an invaluable source of health promoting and heart friendly nutrients such as monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fatty acids, protein and fiber. The calorie values we use today are direct results from the work of Wilbur Atwater, arguably the father of nutritional sciences here in the United States. Proteins contain high levels of nitrogen, which is not oxidized and instead is converted mostly into urea and excreted in urine.
So assuming you needed 2,500 Calories to maintain your body weight and regularly ate let’s say 300 Calories above your metabolic requirements.
Chewing activates mechanical nutrient and sensory signaling systems that appear to significantly affect our appetite.
This applies to many foods that are processed as well, since processing can remove some of the important properties of foods we have evolved to eat over the past several thousand years. Far too often we focus on the numbers- how many calories need to be consumed and what foods are best to reach that quota efficiently.

Ma J, Folsom AR, Melnick SL, Eckfeldt JH, Sharrett AR, Nabulsi AA, Hutchinson RG, Metcalf PA. Saturated fat is traditionally forbidden in most diets, but it actually helps a low carb diet.
But pushing fat levels even higher while cutting carbs makes a big difference in the amount of fat you’ll burn. Coconut oil gives food a nice “buttery” (not coconut) flavor, and is one of the healthiest choices for cooking and baking. MCT converts into energy faster than other oils, ignites your body’s metabolic rate and helps maintain healthy levels of cholesterol. Add to salads, smoothies or your latest Bulletproof coffee fasting plan for immediate, all-day energy.
Without fat, your body can’t absorb carotenoids (powerful antioxidants) or the fat-soluble vitamins A, D, E and K.
I know how important it is to eat snacks throughout the day, but I also know how difficult it can be to make a healthy choice when you don’t plan ahead and the only edible thing in sight is contained within a vending machine. I plan to print some of this list off and hang it in my kitchen for inspirationwhen the munchies hit. My new favorite snack is sliced cucumbers with a dollop of (fat free) cottage cheese on top. It’s my sweet little mini-me’s turn to bring healthy snacks to class this week at her Montessori school and they ALL look so good!
Rib of beef is another favourite – basically a gigantic rib-eye joint – lots of fat and utterly delicious (read more on roasting beef). Put bacon rashers on a roasting tray, add a couple of spoons of water, stick it in a very hot oven for 10 mins or so, then turn it down to about Gas Mark 4 and roast for another 30 mins.


For the simplest option, whip up some double cream with sweetener and unsweetened cocoa powder.
Use it for frying, spread it on low-carb bread, make gorgeous sauces like hollandaise, add it to boiled vegetables to give them some extra oomph.
However, it does taste better when the skin is crispy, so make some criss-cross scores on the skin and gently fry duck breasts skin-down for about 5-10 minutes, spooning the fat out of the pan.
They also give you more bang for your calorie buck … they have fewer calories for the same amount of less fiber-y foods.
To that end, it makes sense to eliminate or restrict the intake of high calorie and high fat foods like nuts.
Who created the caloric standards that we use today in the early years of the 20th century to measure the energy yield of our foods.
Thus some of the calories found in protein foods cannot be absorbed by our bodies and Atwater’s calorie values take this into account.
If those calories came from regular foods you would, in accordance with the laws of thermodynamics see an increase in your body weight over time.
The act of chewing (mastication) breaks the parenchymal cell walls of the nut and liberates some (but not all) of the fats and proteins they encase.
Bear in mind that the human genome hasn’t changed much changed since the emergence of behaviorally modern humans some 150,000 years and so we are still genetically adapted to eat the foods consumed by our remote ancestors [17,18,19,20,21] and in their minimally processed or unprocessed forms as they have been eaten for countless generations. In so doing many experts in the field forget that long term compliance to an uneventful but calorically correct diet is unlikely for the overwhelming majority of the population. The ancestral human diet: what was it and should it be a paradigm for contemporary nutrition? Paleolithic nutrition revisited: a twelve-year retrospective on its nature and implications.

It’s so simple and yummy and it fixes my pesky cheese and cracker craving with a fraction of the calories. I love making my own trail mixes as well (Kashi Honey Sunshine + almonds + walnuts + raisins is one of my favorite combos).
Atkins, Keto) are also high in fat, allowing the most indulgent and hedonistic meals while still losing weight. Lamb shoulder or neck and pork belly also have plenty of fat – I think the best method for those is slow-cooking. Then stick them in the oven for another 10-20 minutes (depending on whether you like them pink or well-done).
Bone marrow is basically fat but it tastes utterly delicious and absolutely melts in your mouth.
Aim for between 30-40 grams of fiber every day, but if you haven’t been eating much fiber lately, you might want to take it a bit slowly. A logical step since it would appear to be all too easy to go over your daily calorie limits by eating several handfuls of these tasty but high energy snacks. Some of the nutritional concepts behind why nuts don’t contribute significantly to weight gain can seem to be somewhat involved and are seldom fully explained in the media. These values are well known by most with any familiarity with nutrition: Proteins and carbohydrates are estimated to have 4 Calories per gram, while fat, which is higher in energy yield has 9 Calories per gram. That’s why the calorie estimates for protein foods are set at 4 Calories per gram and not 5.65 as it measures the biologically available calories. However, if those extra calories came from eating nuts you wouldn’t gain weight since all the listed calories from nuts don’t count.
These nutrients promote the release of appetite related peptide hormones in the intestines such as cholecystokinin (CKK) and glucagon-like protein 1 (GLP-1) which in turn increases our feeling of satiety and prompts us to eat less.[18-20] Anyone who appreciates eating nuts can also attest to the fireworks that seem to go off in your mouth when you eat them. That being said, for optimal weight management it is always wise to eat foods like nuts in as natural a form as possible- and while eating shelled nuts may be more convenient, it is a better practice to eat nuts that are still in their shells.
Studies have shown, however that including nuts as a staple in weight loss diets increases long term adherence and augments overall weight loss.[25,26] It makes perfect sense since having nuts in your diet allows for a tasty and calorie rich food while watching your calories otherwise. This post focuses on gorgeous low-carb high-fat (LCHF) foods – let’s count our blessings and rejoice! Finally, I always keep my eyes open for any hog roast stands– tender pork meat with some crackling, ooh – I have in the past attended music festivals just so that I can get to eat some hog roast. Finally, if you can’t be bothered to do any of that, you can always get a ready-made roast chicken from a rotisserie. However reviews of all the studies on the matter clearly demonstrate that in this case you can indeed have your cake and eat it as they say. That being said, here are five of the ways that nuts can help you lose weight- attributes that hold true for all varieties of nuts.
A corrective estimate is added to calorie values to compensate not just for proteins, but for all foods, as our digestive system never uses 100% of any food that we consume.
Apparently the sensory properties from the taste of nuts stimulates our salivary glands, digestive system and increases metabolism.[15] Perhaps as a way our body prepares to get the most out of the nutrients it can derive from the foods we eat. The form in which nuts are available is a very real factor in regards to our overall appetites, as the extra preparation time required slows down our rates of consumption. A much needed break that serves not only to reduce the cravings for unhealthy high calorie snacks, but also increases the likelihood that you will stay on your diet.
Foods that have been part of our diet as human beings for millennia- and in a form that is as raw an unprocessed as possible. However they don’t necessarily tell the whole story, especially where nuts and plant proteins are concerned. Thus any calories contained in undigested particles don’t count towards our overall energy intake and this is accounted for in the calorie values of most foods to give an accurate assessment of how much energy our body can obtain by consuming them. A rather controlled clinical study found that chewing almonds 25 times (which is the average number for most people who eat almonds without trying to choke) elicits the strongest reduction in hunger and increased feeling of fullness two hours after eating, compared to chewing 10 or 40 times.[16] Which leads us to believe there is no need to exaggerate chewing in order to reap the appetite suppressing attributes of nuts since regular chewing seems to do the trick. That it takes longer to eat nuts when they must be first removed from their shells increases the metabolic signals of satiety- which can thus reduce the amount of calories we consume in a sitting.[22] An invaluable side effect for anyone trying to control their eating habits. A somewhat puzzling and counter-intuitive happenstance but in this article we will take a look at the mechanisms behind this phenomenon and explore five ways that eating nuts can help you lose weight and stay on track with your diet.
It might be a surprise to some to learn that according to Atwater’s measurements, most protein foods have a true calorie yield of 5.65 Calories per gram.
