    Default Low carb high fat support thread

    Now the baby is out it's time to get back into my size 10 stuff (size 8 would be better). I've had huge success in the past with this diet and found chatting to others and sharing recipes and fitness ideas really helped me along.

    So come and join me! This diet is fabulous for just losing the carb belly even if you don't want to lose weight

    Ooh, can I join? Although bub is only a week old, he is #3 and it has totally taken a toll on my poor bod (age doesn't help either) I have a weight loss diary, but quite frankly need some support and inspiration. Having had a c section my ability to exercise at the moment is somewhat limited (and my place is very hilly so no pushing a 15kg toddler and newborn up the hill)... but I can concentrate on the diet bit for a while! I got to 83kg this pregnancy and my aim is to get back to my comfortable pre pregnancy weight of 60-65kg....

    Of course you can! We sound in very similar places. It's been 3 weeks since my c/s. I got to 89kg, now about 77. Want to get to 65, maybe 60.

    I'm not going to be big on weighing but how my clothes fit. Last time I was on this diet I dropped 4 or 5kg but I went from a size 12 to a 10 in 4 weeks.

    How does 'low carb' work? Is it small amounts of any carbs or are white carbs banned?

    And how high is high fat? Can you give some examples?

    Sounds like a diet I might be interested in doing!

    And good luck getting down to a size 10 (or 8)

    I usually like to keep under 30g of carbs per day, but under 50 is often enough. Carbs aren't banned, just greatly reduced. Cutting them altogether isn't healthy.

    I don't put restrictions on fat content. In our last thread several articles were posted from research saying it was sugar and carbs that caused heart disease and stroke, not fat.

    So an average day for me might consist of...

    Breakfast - omelette
    snack - low carb dip with celery and carrot sticks
    lunch - chicken/beef salad
    afternoon tea - boiled egg
    dinner - garlic chicken breast and veg

    I started eating LCHF about 3 months ago. I have dropped 2kg, but in actual fact I didnt have any weight to lose, rather I just wanted to lose some of the fat around my tummy. My pants are definitely much looser. I did take a starting photo (on my phone) in my underwear so I could compare whether I changed much, but my annoying Miss 6 thought the photos were silly so unbeknownst to me she deleted them (needless to say I now have a password on my phone).

    I am enjoying this way of eating a lot, but I do struggle sometimes with breakfast in that i get sick of having a big breaky and having eggs, so i do change it up a bit.

    This is what I want to do! I got from 90kgs down to 57 with exercise alone but now that's not working. I am back up to 60kgs and gained cms. I want to get to 55kgs. Chocolate is my weakness oh and carbs!! Hahah. I think a drastic reduction in carbs is key but they are just so addictive so I'm subbing for motivation

    I'm a carb monster too waterlily. I love fresh white rolls with roast beef, pasta and potatoes.

    I found though there are so many hidden carbs. Sauces and dairy were the stand out ones.

    Girlsrock - I agree about breakfast. Eggs do get boring. But I found once I hit ketosis I often just skipped it. Probably not the best but I wasn't hungry.
