Yesterday I created the "LCHF Revolution - Inspiration Swedish Diet Doctor" challenge on Fatsecret. The (low carb, medium fat, high fat) challenge is due to commence on 07 January 2013 and will run for a period of 12 weeks.

I created the challenge based on the Scandinavian LCHF (Low Carb High Fat) food revolution - a healthy lifestyle which I believe most Scandinavian people are following now, which is a mealplan reverting to the way many (and slimmer) people used to live by - 50 or more years ago.

The inspiration and guidelines for the Challenge is linked to the Swedish LCHF Diet Doctor - which is a website run by the Swedish Doctor, Andreas Eenfeldt.

Quote:
Do you want to eat real food (as much as you like) and improve your health and weight? It may sound too good to be true, but LCHF (Low Carb, High Fat) is a method that has been used for 150 years. Now, modern science backs it up with proof that it works.

There is no weighing your food, no counting, no bizarre “meal replacements,” no pills. There is just real food and common sense.

A LCHF diet means you eat less carbohydrates and a higher proportion of fat. Most importantly you minimize your intake of sugar and starches. You can eat other delicious foods until you are satisfied – and still lose weight.

A number of recent high-quality scientific studies shows that LCHF makes it easier both to lose weight and to control your blood sugar. And that’s just the beginning.

The basics:

Eat: Meat, fish, eggs, vegetables growing above ground and natural fats (like butter).
Avoid: Sugar and starchy foods (like bread, pasta, rice and potatoes).

Eat when you’re hungry until you are satisfied. It’s that simple. You do not need to count calories or weigh your food. And just forget about industrially produced low fat products.
