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.
Carbohydrates include foods such as breakfast cereal, pasta, bread, soft drink, grains, biscuits, fruit juice, lollies, potatoes, pizza etc etc. Because carbs induce an insulin response which encourages the body to hold on to fat storage which can lead to insulin resistance, weight gain, inflammation, diabetes and leptin resistance – which leads to more over eating…and the cycle continues!
High carbohydrate diets are also associated with mental health issues such as depression and anxiety as well as increased cardiovascular risks. Controlling insulin sensitivity and blood sugar levels to better control your appetite and your hormones meaning you can control a healthy weight range and reduce inflammation in the body.


By removing the refined carbs such as grains and wheat you are effectively removing most of the gluten in your diet and as we know, gluten increases intestinal permeability known as leaky gut and causes an imbalance of gut microbiota known as gut dysbiosis which increases autoimmunity and inflammation.
Further its a great way for diabetics to keep blood sugar levels stable, for everyone for overall weight reduction, epilepsy, skin acne, Polycystic Ovary Syndrome and other neurological diseases.
In addition your mood swings and sugar cravings should abate since fat takes longer to digest and helps to keep your blood sugar levels stable, meaning less cravings to hit the sweet spot. Also if you suffer adrenal issues and thyroid conditions getting slightly more carb may suit your make up and lead you to better health.
So remove the processed carbs and increase your fats and help your body to repair and dampen inflammation. Since the body does not NEED carbohydrates for energy, we can use fat for energy instead, there are no risks.
If you suffer adrenal fatigue, thyroid issues or you are a sprint athlete who needs carbs for explosive fitness, then including healthy carbs is perfectly acceptable and even recommended. I once ate pasta and bread every day of my life pretty much (yes, I was addicted!) and can say I haven’t touched pasta or bread in over two years now without any issue or complaint. Secondly, when you build your plate focus on a palm worth of protein for women (2 for men) and then get at least a thumb print of full fat  (to start as you transition, working your way up) and then finally good healthy vegetable carbs such as sweet potato.
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. 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.
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. 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.
