LCHF has been around for a while in Sweden. I mean, Atkins is the father of low-carbing diets (right?) but since the Swedish doctor Annika Dahlquist started promoting LCHF in Sweden in 2005, the "movement" has become very popular in viking-land. Although Dahlquist was criticized at first (and she probably still is), she has continued to promote the diet and now LCHF is spreading around the world.
Most of my readers are from America, the UK and Australia but I thought most are expats like me who heard about the news from home. Now that super-blogger Jimmy Moore has started a new blog, I am not so sure it's all Swedes anymore.
I think this is really good news! It's not that I want to convert people to low-carbing, people can eat whatever they want, but I think it's great for people to know there might be an alternative way of eating out there that would suit them much better than the current fat-phobia.
My LCHF is about my choice of eating LCHF and how it works in practice. It's not always easy, sometimes I fall for cravings but this blog helps me to find the way back to a healthy life style and I hope it will help you, too!
