My Low Carb High Fat Lifestyle Choice

Throughout this website and on most of my posts you will see that I refer to “low-carb, high-fat” as a diet. Today I want to clarify that for me it’s a lifestyle.

Low Carb High Fat Lifestyle

Yes, back in March 2016 it started out as a diet. I was going to support my boyfriend and do this with him. I was hoping to shed a bit of weight.

But then I experienced so many miracles that I have realized that LCHF is a lifestyle choice. And it is a lifestyle that I recommend for anyone who isn’t happy with their overall health.

Here is a short list of some of the changes (some huge, some small) that I have experienced on low carb, high fat.

Low Carb Lifestyle Benefits

  • Losing weight is easy peasy because you are naturally in a fat burning state!
  • Mood Swings! For the first time in my life, I feel stable. I don’t have the mood swings that sugar gave me.
  • no headaches. I used to get headaches all the time. Now I simply don’t get them.
  • Poop-okay I don’t want to get gross, but let me just say poop is normal. I don’t ever have all the issues I had before.
  • No more joint pain! As a retail manager, I am on my feet all day long. Since doing LCHF, I no longer experience pain in my knees and joints.
  • I sleep well. Now I am able to sleep on my stomach and I wake up feeling energetic.

My partner, Brian also had some amazing things happen.

  • Reversed his diabetes and is off all of his meds.
  • He is off his BP meds as his bp is no longer high.
  • He no longer snores and he can now sleep on his stomach.
  • His acid reflux is gone.

For me, watching him get healthy has been an amazing experience. I often cry because I am so happy and proud of him. I thank God daily that my man will be with me for many years. I feel very blessed.

So yes, LCHF is a lifestyle, not a diet.

  1. It’s amazing that you can do the low carb high fat lifestyle and have so many benefits. I do low carbs as I have pre-diabetes and it has helped me get the numbers down.
    How did you get into this lifestyle? Is the no joint pain a result of the weight loss or the diet?

    1. I think the no joint pain has to do with both, but mainly the diet. I eat a lot of bone broth which has gelatin and bone marrow. I’m sure that helps. But I’m sure losing the weight helps as well. Congrats on getting your numbers down, Dinh! Keep pushing!

  2. Wendy, I am happy you and your friend found a lifestyle change which works perfectly for you. I share your joy. The benefits far outweigh the sacrifices and therefore makes it worth the effort. I would be interested in seeing a meal plan for a day, just to get an idea of what you eat, especially your friend with a history of diabetes. I am diabetic, but much improved, also because I made a lifestyle change. All the best and remember the meal plan.
