Just bumping this thread up . How are we all going?
I've been on the health/weight loss train since end of Feb this year and have lost 20kg . I've got about another 25kg to lose to get into a healthy weight range.
I started out with calorie counting, and heaps of walking using a fitbit to achieve my step goals. Then found out about 5:2 which was good for a while but I can't seem to have a successful fast in cold weather.
I've been reading about lchf for a while, following Christine Cronau's fb page. Have now got her cookbook. Also today I purchased The Real Meal Revolution which is a good read and looking forward to making some of the food in it.
There's so much info on the net to trawl through and I notice some of the hflc sites are very very strict about carbs and Christine's cookbook you can use masa harina (cornmeal) to make tortillas etc. I guess it's a personal choice and what works for you.
It is a little scary though isn't it. The fat is bad message is so ingrained, and anyone I've spoken to about this way of eating has been very skeptical.
Anyone interested in starting a bubhub lchf fb group? To keep track, share meal ideas?
