23 Feb LCHF: EAT CRACKLINGS WHEN DIETING
As its name implies, an LCHF (low-carb, high-fat) diet is low in carbohydrates and high in fat, offering its users a fresh perspective on healthy eating.
In Croatia, the trend began after Anita Šupe launched a blog back in 2010 and then published her book titled The Truths and Lies About Food in 2012. Anita is a well-known nutritionist, examining issues related to the modern diet in a comprehensive and easily understandable way, and offering simple solutions to leading a healthier lifestyle and regulating one’s body weight.
As Anita once said:
LCHF is primarily for people suffering from the metabolic syndrome, insulin resistance, diabetes, and obesity. Their bodies cannot metabolize carbohydrates normally, causing all these disorders. By reducing the carbohydrate intake, these disorders are regulated naturally. People usually go on the LCHF diet to lose weight, as it regulates appetite and reduces cravings naturally, thus allowing long-term dieting. Even more important is the LCHF diet’s impact on one’s metabolic health: triglycerides are lowered, blood sugar is stabilized, and insulin secretion is reduced. All that is especially important for diabetics and people with insulin resistance. Nonetheless, if they want to, even healthy individuals can go on the LCHF diet, making it a lifestyle change. The diet focuses on some of the nutritionally richest foods and dismisses nutritionally poor foods, empty calories, any many of the potential allergens.

The Anita Šupe – Paleo/LCHF Facebook group, which has more than 30,000 followers, is intended for learning, sharing experiences, and supporting people who are already on either the LCHF or paleo diet, or are still considering incorporating those diets into their lifestyles.
