A (LCHF) or keto or banting way of eating can be simply explained as eating low carb and healthy fat foods.

Begin by eating less carbs (and sugar), stick to the green list & eat only when hungry

* Limit carbs to 20-25 grams or below for weight loss and around 50-100 grams carbs for maintenance.

Eliminate all sugar from your diet. Yes, that means most fruit, dates & any refined or unrefined sugars.

Fill up on healthy fats – some nuts, seeds, avocado, olive oil, dairy & animal fat, any foods from the green list. This will help satiate your appetite and fuel the body.

Eat more whole foods and start reading and understanding product nutritional labels.

Of course, use our delicious recipes to help make delicious and easy LCHF food for you and your family.

We also suggest to;

Step 1 – read as much as you can about LCHF. We love the Diet Doctor website as a good place to start!

Step 2 – download these green, orange and red food lists! Download RMR food lists here

The basis of our recipes follow a Low Carb Healthy Fat (LCHF) way of eating, which we follow in alignment with the Real Meal Revolution/Banting lifestyle using information & scientific research sourced by Professor Noakes and Real Meal Revolution. The Green list we eat freely from until satiated, Orange list items is occasional or once you’re in ‘maintenance’ (ie. you’ve reached your goal weight), and the Red list items we stay well away from as they are too high in carbs, sugar and inflammatory foods.

For more information purchase the The Real Meal Revolution book by Professor Tim Noakes, Sally-Ann Creed, Jonno Proudfoot and David Grier, as it is the ultimate LCHF/Banting book which will explain everything and anything you want to know about LCHF. Get it here.
