Food

My food philosophy is quite simple. I will come back here and write more about it but in really short is is:

EAT REAL FOOD

Try to avoid pre made dinners, fast food, “mixes” etc. buy real food and prepare it as it should be prepared! It does not take much more time than warming something in the micro. A pure meat hamburger flattened is done in only a couple of minutes and with seasoned butter in the fridge and some asparagus you are all set. It might in total take 10-15 minutes instead of 5 but it’s worth it. I promise.

As soon as possible I will start putting up real recipes on the site. But for now I will only put pictures and descriptions on the daily blog.

    Hey, I was excited to find this site today! my husband has been doing this “diet” since May of this year,he has weighed himself every day, he started at 272 lbs, and today he weighed in at 232, he did stay around 248 lbs in his second month of the “diet” but has been slowly losing since then. I am his cook, and am starting to find it hard to keep it interesting with no carbs, I love to cook and bake, so obviously baking has been out of teh question for us lol. I love your story and i told my hubby about it right away. Thanks for doing this site and all the meal ideas are great!

    • Tommy says:

      Thank you!

      One of the reasons for this site is to show the food you can eat when eating Low carb High Fats…

      I am also open for suggestions on dishes I have missed… 🙂

        Well in the last 6 months i have made A LOT lol, unlike you, i could never eat the same thing over and over lol, my hubby totally can…btu since i am the cook….
        Lasagna with basic homemade ground beef and tomato sauce, can use turkey, pork or even lamb, the “noodles” are 1/4″ sliced zucchinni, and/or eggplant that I roast in the oven for 20 mins @ 350. i baste them with Olive oil and garlic first. In the middle layer i put Ricotta cheese mixed with crushed garlic and chopped fresh spinach and top with zuchinni, then sauce, repeat and a final topping of Parmesan or your choice of cheese. Lettuce wraps with spicy thai ground pork with fried onions and garlic. i use red chilis, garlic, toasted sesame seeds and sesame oil to season the pork. Ground meat of your choice fried with cherry tomatoes cut in half and Zuchinni Salt and peper to taste topped with fresh chives and basil. “Lions head soup” basically ground pork mixed with green onions, an egg, sesame seed oil salt and pepper, rolled into meat balls, fry up half a head of Savoy cabbage in butter, and onions, and 2 cups of chicken broth and 2 cups of water, let come to a simmer put in the raw pork meatballs, let simmer covered for 30 mins or till pork meatball are fully cooked, we had ours topped with fresh cilantro, green onions and sesame oil. soya sauce would be good if u were feeling like a bit of a cheat 🙂 For breakfasts we have been doing baked eggs in ham cups done in ramekins @ 350 degree oven topped with cheese of your choice and green onions, bake for 12 minutes, yolks are still runny at this point but whites are cooked. and different varations of this, have used bacon, salami, thuringer, added a ricotta creamy sauce on top etc… this is just whats in my head from the last week…

          I just put my lamb meatballs on top of a 1/2 cup of spaghetti squash with 2 tbs tomato sauce and a 1/2 cup of cheese. It’s roughly 50% meatballs with everything else arranged near it, but it’s lovely. I keep them frozen in the fridge in containers and whip it would with the toddlers are eating theirs. I do the same with tiny eggplant pizzas. I keep a good stock of ones I love in the freezer for later (like Linda’s low carb lasagna recipe). So when I’m hard up it’s less of a chore. A common breakfast is the 2 egg 1 oz creemcheese microwaved fake french toast and 1 tbs of sugar free syrup topped with pecans and cinnamon (or without with a few berries). Today was egg scramble with sardines. Snack was coconut fat fast bread (packed in the freezer, grabbed 1 slice and just popped into the toaster) with 1 oz creem chesse on top and 1/2 a strawberry cut up (to be pretty and a bit of acid helps with the cream cheese). Tonight will be lebaneese marinated chicken with tabuli. I make enough chicken for a salad and an omelet for later. When I’m in a rut I pick up some of my favorite cook books and go for something crazy. My favorites are “fat fast” with dana carpenter for quick/microwave high fat and Karen Barnany (?) low carb gourmet (can be harder to obtain items if rural) when I’m stuck. I just had her keema over eggs to try and get over my last run, and loved it. I tend to pintrest things I’ve eaten off the internet to keep track of what I loved and the modifications I used. I tend to bake a lot of flax/coconut breads actually to get me through. I may have to do oopsie bread, but baking is a good part of this for me. I find it’s usually just a bottom for a topper (so kinda useless). Sometimes I get nostalgic and it’s nice. I’m in love with the black soybean chili from george stella *(chef), which also freezes great and would be lovely for the coming winter. When rutting, find something you miss and start cooking!

    Thanks!

    The pork meatballs look really nice. I have to try that soon..

    The ricotta, carlic and spinach sound great too.

    Very good, sounds lovely. Another, very important thing, that you are not hungry when you totally skip the carbs. Eat when you hungry.
    Thanks!

  12. maggie C says:

    Hi. I’ve been following LCHF for just over a week and am still on a learning curve but do feel generally a lot better for it. However, I wish to know if I can add a few croutons to my chicken caesar salad without too much detriment.
    Thanks

    • Tommy says:

      Nope, no croutons. Bread is bread so I could never recommend eating croutons. Just ad more parmesan cheese and bacon… 🙂

    how can college students achieve this diet with the poor quality of food they give us? when freshman cant have cars on campus it is even more difficult. i am trying to help some of my friends. i am a commuter to college so i eat super clean, but i understand their difficulties with being away and not being in control of what healthy options are available.

  17. Elaine says:

    Are beans allowed on this diet?

    • Tommy says:

      Not for me. Beans are a little to heavy on carbs if you want to go really low carb. if you do not go as low as I try beans now and then might be ok. Green beans lite Haricot vertes are much better than white beans in tomato sauce…

    Hi Tommy

    I have watched documentary about LCHF from
    Korean tv channel MBC and plan to give a try

    I am wondering about the way to calculate E%
    For instance if i have 200g of lamb, how much grams of fat like mayo, butter etc should i eat to have 70% of fat intake?

    Thanks in advance
