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. Please note every effort has been made to include accurate information, but this is not a recommendation on this diet. About Sage VitaSage Vita, which means a life of wisdom, advocates a lifestyle that will enable us to live not only longer but also well and to engage in lifelong learning and with the world around us. No food alone could ever cause us to lose weight, there is no such thing as the best single weight loss food.
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. You eat a lot more protein, more olive oil, butter, avocado and similar, but also lots of leafy greens and other vegetables. Further research and the advice of a physician is highly recommended before starting this diet plan or any other diet plan mentioned on the Sage Vita website.
It does not give prescriptions but provides guidelines and information along a number of dimensions - including physical, mental, spiritual, social, and financial, for each of us to create our own unique Sage Vita lifestyle. 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. 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.
Critics say that it is unhealthy because the way the diet is designed you are required to eliminate a few entire food groups from your diet.
One of the main things people like about the Atkins diet is that you can eat foods that most diets restrict you from – butter, eggs, bacon, steak, hamburger, etc. People often say that another thing they like about the Atkins diet is that they don’t ever feel hungry. This usually occurs mostly in the induction phase when you are so limited on what foods you can eat. Unfortunately the biggest con to the Atkins diet is how easily people gain the weight back they lost. If you are an hour glass shape, the weight distributes evenly, especially in the butt and upper thigh area. 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. By eliminating these food groups (fruits especially and grains) it is believed that your body will burn fat for energy causing you to lose weight quickly.
The first phase of the diet, the induction phase, is the most restricting phase and it’s during this time when people seem to lose the most amount of weight. This could be because of the ‘hearty’ meals you’re eating (like mentioned above the steak, burgers, etc) but more than likely it’s probably because you are eliminating carbohydrates.
While it’s nice to be following a diet that lets you enjoy all the fatty foods you want, eating those over and over and over can get boring really quick.
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. Because of the quick loss in the beginning, it tends to keep most people motivated and driven to keep going and not giving up.
When you eliminate carbs from your diet you don’t have the up and down blood sugar levels that you do when you’re eating them. Some people also complain of bad breath and in some cases dehydration can be a problem too. I will be using Fuel Factor protein shakes inbetween meals, as I am always on the go, hence part of my problem as to how I became over weight.
However I must remember to do intense cardio and minor weights otherwise I will bulk up to much. My caloric intake is also lower than the recommendation, but again, I know this  works and I'm not below 1000, so I will be able to be alive and function daily.

    And hot tubs like a crash course to help understand this logic.
