Whilst I was putting the recipe together and looking at the nutrient panel, I noticed that it was not only GF but also very low in carbs.  So I thought it was a good time to talk about Keto and LCHF diets. What are these LCHF diets we have been hearing all about?

What are the Keto & LCHF diets we have been hearing all about?

The Keto diet restricts carbohydrates to an extremely low level. It’s common for someone on this type of meal plan to eat as low as 10 -20gm of carbs per day.  Regular dietary guideline state that we should eat between 45-65% of our diets in carbohydrates. For an average female that would equate to approximately 250gm in carbohydrates.

The reason the Keto diet restricts carbohydrates in order to stop the body producing glucose from the carbohydrates. When carbs are eaten we produce insulin to break down the glucose and turn it into energy for everyday functions. On the Keto diet, the low carb load forces the body to produce ketones in the liver which is then used as energy. The diet goes by many different names ketogenic diet, low carb diet, low carb high fat (LCHF), etc.

Just for the record, I don’t recommend any meal plan except eating healthy, real food. I have noticed that my diet is naturally low in simple carbohydrates, as I don’t like processed foods, like white bread, pastry, processed sauces, chips, lollies etc.

I do however eat about 120 -150gm of carbohydrates each day because I love my fruit, vegetables, whole grains, beans, and legumes. So according to dietary guidelines, I tend to a naturally low carbohydrate diet.

So why I am telling you all this?? I guess I just wanted to share, that although I don’t follow an eating plan, restricting simple carbohydrates and processed foods has always been the key to me maintaining my figure. Please remember to speak to a registered dietician or doctor before commencing any new diet.

    Hiya,
    Not sure what I did wrong, but by adhering to the “1 teaspoon of mixture” I had SO much mixture left over.
    Please advise?
    Cheers, Simon

    1. Hi Simon,
      The amount of filling you will need depends on the size of the ham. I’m sorry if I wasn’t clear. I’ve said use 1 heaped spoonful but maybe I should suggests starting with a helped spoonful of filling and adding more if required to fill the ham.
      Thanks
      Julie
