Its about three years since I became aware of Low Carb High Fat (LCHF), also known as Banting, as a way of eating. A work colleague of mine did a talk on sugar and the detrimental impact it has on the health of all humans, be they overweight or not.

There is overwhelming evidence now of the damaging effects of sugar and processed food, the following is an excellent article from the UK cardiologist Aseem Malhotra on the topic.

We have been duped into believing that the low fat diet is the way humans should eat for optimum health. This is blatantly incorrect. A low fat diet means a high carbohydrate diet. In the simplest of terms, carbohydrates cause a spike in insulin which drives appetite and promotes fat storage. An LCHF diet on the other hand results in better insulin control, appetite control and better overall health in every respect.

I have become accustomed to this way of cooking and eating. No more cravings and especially no more horrible low fat yoghurts, happy days.

You can hear more about my own personal story in this recent talk that I have done

I am also a Certified Banting Coach for Real Meal Revolution. I run a face to face group in Dublin, details are here

    1. Thanks Theo. Looking forward to what the Banting elite course will bring and meeting lots of like minded people! I am living in Dublin Ireland. We badly need Banting.


  2. Simply fantastic! It is amazing to see coaches taking initiative in all kinds of ways. I would love you to write a guest post for my future blog if you have the time to spare. I would be very honoured if you did๐Ÿ™‚ Keep up the fantastic work!


  3. Hello Lowcarbmam,
    Good luck with your new group. I have been RMR banting for 5 months and it has bought me so much health and happiness as well as 2 stones in weight loss. I wish every member of your group as much excitement as I have had … and it was not too difficult!
