About

Welcome! Välkommen! Howdy!
This blog is my humble attempt to keep the English speaking world updated with the diet revolution in progress in Sweden. This revolution means that more and more Swedes are starting to eat less carbohydrates and more of natural fats, which makes us leaner and healthier.

We call this method LCHF (Low Carb High Fat), and it’s more than just a diet – it’s a healthy lifestyle! In the English speaking world this method is better known by names as Atkins, Paleo or Low Carb. But the Swedish way of doing it is to stress the importance of replacing the carbs with fat, hence the “High Fat”. Don’t ask me why we chose an English name for it, I guess it sounds more catchy than “Låg Kolhydrat Hög Fett”? Or perhaps someone predicted that we’d start exporting the concept?

I will do my best to summon LCHF-related news from Swedish television, newspapers, blogs and press releases. I won’t be writing articles of my own on the subject, nor share recipes or weight loss-plans. I will simply be translating what I think might be relevant to share, so that you won’t have to use Babelfish or Google Translate to guess. I’ll also write comments on the posts when I think guidance from a Swedish perspective might be needed.

If you are following this blog you probably already know why carbs are bad, but if this is news for you please follow the links in the right colum. (It might change your life!)

If you have any suggestions (or want to nag about misspellings or grammar), please write a comment or send me an e-mail at epicindy[A]gmail.com.

Who am I?
That’s not very important, but I’ll give you some clues. I’m a soon-to-be 30 year old Swede living in Stockholm, who spent most of my teens and twenties as a convinced vegetarian. A couple of years ago my doctor banged a diabetes type 2-warning in my head, and gave me another diagnose to stack with the others (hypothyreosis, endometriosis, allergies, irretable bowels and prone to catching colds, depressions and muscle inflammations).

He recommended me to stop eating sugar and refined carbs, and after having read all those books I should have read before becoming vegan at the age of 15, I decided to reverse my way of thinking when it came to food. Out went all the white foods, in went the greasy animal products. All but my endometriosis (which has irreversably damaged me for life) is now gone or under control as long as I don’t mess with the white stuff and stick to LCHF.

So why did I start this blog?
It’s simple, really. If I can change one persons life to the better, it’ll be worth the trouble. I wish that “The Vegetarian Myth” had been written then and that I’d read it, so that I would have been able to see the world from another perspective. That might have spared me of more than a decade of suffering.

I wish that whoever reads this blog, who eats no or little animal fats but plenty carbs, and suffer from any of the wide range of Western diseases, will pick up the courage to ask the difficult questions and try a new life with LCHF.

I found a healthier life, and so can you wheter you’re obese, diabetic or just plain unhealthy.

    Granted, some people fare poorly when carbs are spared, and not just on cognitive tasks. Many also suffer mild to major anxiety or irritability, especially in the early (induction) stages of the diet. Some folks are just built that way, and may need to increase carb intake slightly while dieting. Others endure the initial stress to reap immediate benefits. Hands down, there is no faster way to lose weight, while improving metabolic health. The degree of discomfort depends largely on the choices you make.’
