2 Amazing LCHF groups and a very useful macro chart!

I stumbled across the Facebook group, LCHF – Low Carb High Fat the other day while looking for some inspiration for dinner that night.  What I found was something I haven’t seen since the 90’s…a group of passionate and friendly people completely focused on Low Carb (with a twist of High Fat). Throughout the 2000’s I felt as though the ‘scene’ became jaded and lost, it seemed more focused on finding the perfect snack bar instead of helping someone through induction.  Well, that aside, A woman named Beth posted the following graphic (click to enlarge and right-click to save)


BUT, after I posted this blog it came to my attention that the graphic was designed by Raymund Edwards who started the Facebook group Optimal Ketogenic Living. At 10,000+ members it is another LCHF/Ketogenic powerhouse of information! Optimal Ketogenic Living was described to me as THE place to find the science to back up the macros, find support and learn about fitness.  Do yourself a favor and head over there and join!  I did!

This chart will get you jump started into what your macro for LCHF should be!  A macro in case you don’t know is the breakdown of Carbs / Fat / Protein that you should consume to maintain or lose weight.  Look up your height and get started!

Another post that got me tonight was from a poster named Chris (please contact me if you would like to be linked to this story), he posted magical looking Scotch Eggs and said this was how he made them,

Started the eggs in cold water over medium heat. Removed and chilled them after they boiled 4 minutes. I peeled them after they were in the frig a few hours. Wrapped them with Italian sausage and left them in the frig overnight. The next day I cooked them at 375 degrees until the sausage was done.”

Simply amazing and an inspiration!

At over 15,000 members you can imagine the amount of posts they get daily but it’s all really from a  great bunch.  I look forward to the many ideas I will get here  Check them out

Atkins Diet Recipes: Low Carb Puppy Chow (E-IF or OWL) **Fixed**

In partnership with FaveHealthyRecipes, my son recently started the Atkins Diet and has lost 17 pounds in 3 or 4 weeks on the diet. It has been remarkably simple for him — even dealing with school lunches. We prepare a couple lunches as week for him, and he eats deli sandwiches (no bread) or salads with eggs and meat for when he eats at school. This was one of his first low carb items he prepared himself, and it turned out really well. Puppy chow was one of his past favorites, and now he has a good low carb conversion for it.

1/2 cup “Natural” peanut butter
1/4 cup coconut oil
1/4 cup butter
3 tbsp cocoa powder
4 tsp Splenda or liquid equivalent
6 oz Original or unflavored pork rinds
2 tbsp powdered Splenda
Makes 12 Servings.

Nutrition Info per serving (1/2 – 3/4 oz):
204 Calories, 17.6g Fat, 3g Total Carbs (1.0g Fiber), 10.2g Protein

**Depending on your view of peanuts (as a nut or legume), this recipe may be considered E-IF or OWL. Dr. Atkins was never clear in his books how to treat them.

FYI – as any good dad, I am protective of my kids, so any perceived negative comments about my son will be subject to immediate block.

McDougall On LLVLC Show With Jimmy Moore – Chipmunk Edition

When low-carb podcaster Jimmy Moore attempted to interview a high-carb, starch-based vegan diet advocate named Dr. John McDougall on his top-rated iTunes health podcast “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show,” he was genuinely interested in having a civilized conversation about the role of diet in a healthy lifestyle. But what happened next could very easily be described as bizarre, surreal and completely laughable. So in honor of how the interview went, enjoy this special chipmunk edition of Episode 686 of The LLVLC Show that aired on Monday, June 2, 2013.
