About 18 months ago, I was diagnosed with Diabetes (Type 2) which I believe was caused by a lack of exercise and having gained 15kg in my tender oldER age! I had to make a serious plan to lose weight and decided to go on a Banting/LCHF diet. After researching Banting & LCHF (Low Carb High Fat), I kept to the basics & lost 10kg with very little effort. I must admit that the "high fat" bit worries me but I found that anything high fat is very filling and I can't really eat that much of it anyway (too rich!).
Anyway it's worked for me and I feel so much better already - only 5kg to go!
On the top right of the A3Recipes.com home page I have provided Banting Alternatives for bread, chips, mash, noodles, pasta, pizza base, rice & wraps. Please try them and the snack option (biltong) and let me know if you have any other ideas or recipes which you would like to share. I would love to try them and will publish them (with full credit!). Take care, Barbs.
