TV4 Nyheterna Värmland: “Lost 40 kg by eating fat”


TV4 Nyheterna Värmland: “Lost 40 kg by eating fat”
May 3, 2010

My comments
This is a clip from the local news in Värmland featuring Monique Forslund who runs the blog Life Zone. Monique is one of Sweden’s foremost LCHF advisors, and she also writes in English on her blog.

And now over to the show!
Three years ago she weighed about 105 kg and kept in the back of the room on the workouts. Today she weighs forty kilos less, leads training sessions and has one of Sweden’s most widely read health blogs. We have met Monique Forslund from Karlstad who live by the LCHF method.

MONIQUE: I think I was about 12 years old when I first joined the Weight Watchers. Since then I’ve tried basically everything, and I’ve always been hungry, and it has always only ended with me eating everything I could get my hands on after a week.

NARRATOR: But then Monique Forslund discovered the LCHF method, which means that you exclude all sugar and instead eat a whole lot of fat. So on cozy evenings, chips and ice cream are now replaced with strawberries with wipped cream and nuts. And for breakfast she eats homemade bread made of eggs and cream cheese. Monique also works out a lot and is an aerobics instructor. In three years she haven’t eaten candy, pasta, potatoes or rice. So the obvious question is if it isn’t hard to refrain from all of that?

MONIQUE: No, not at all. Not at all! [Laughter] It’s crazy really. And if someone had told me three years ago that I would never again eat a cookie, then I would have said “that’s never gonna happen”, and I don’t think I’d would gone through with it. But the sugar addiction disappears, and today I feel that don’t miss any of it.

[Monique shows the reporter what’s in her fridge.]
MONIQUE: A lot of cream, butter, cream cheese, creme fraiche, meat…

REPORTER: There’s been a lot of writings claiming that this diet can cause cardiovascular disease. How do you react to that?

MONIQUE: No, I don’t get alarmed at all. I’ve seen so incredibly many who has become healthy with this lifestyle, so I don’t feel any worries at all.

NARRATOR: Monique writes about her lifestyle on her blog, and she now has one of the most widely read health blogs in Sweden.

MONIQUE: Well I hadn’t even read a blog before I started, so I was like “how do I do this now?”. [Laughter]

MONIQUE: I know how hard it can be to loose weight, and I’ve felt so bad for so very many years. So I feel that if I can help someone else who feels unwell, or feels that it’s hard, then that gives me a lot in return.
