1.You should eat the same, boring stuff every day

When somebody hears that I eat a high fat- low carb diet, the reaction is always the same “How could you eat just pork and butter?”

Hm, I love pork and butter but I don’t eat just that! When you eat a high fat diet, that means that your main source of fuel will be fats. This means that between at least 60-70% of your calories should come from fats. And fat ain’t just butter! There are fats in avocado, olives, bacon, pork, eggs, nuts and so on.

Besides that if you learn to cook you could prepare the meat in all kind of different ways and it won’t taste boring and you won’t it the same think over and over. For example I eat a lot of eggs, but I never get bored with eating them, because there are so many different ways you could cook them – scrambled, boiled, on an omelette, baked over medium. Besides that you could prepare meals like this, this, this and this one.

It is the same like with the sandwiches, you’ve been eating until now… a sandwich has just one definition- bread, with a big variety of foods in between- meat, veggies, fries, cheese and so on. But depending on how you prepare the sandwich, you could eat this every single day, but feel like you are eating a variety of foods.

It’s the same with high fat- low carb eating. If you learn to cook your food, you don’t need to eat just pork and butter… yes, if you are being lazy, this is always an option, but that means that YOU picked up the boring high fat options!

Here are some of my meals, and they all taste different even though the products are pretty much the same!

Pork and veggies
Eggs, butter and veggies
Eggs, pork and veggies
Eggs,salad and olives
Pork steaks and sausages
Eggs and bacon

2.A high fat diet, allows you to eat FATTY foods

Yes, as I said your main source of fuel should be fats. But we are still talking about healthy eating. More often than not, I hear people saying how they eat fatty fries and other fried stuff but they don’t lose weight. Well, hello! No wonder they are not losing weight!

Start making a difference between different sources of fat and choose ONLY the healthy once!

I even remember a situation with a friend of mine, who decided to start eating a high fat diet… on the next day she was eating broccoli and mayonnaise… I don’t think that this could take her too far…closer to her goal!

3.You start eating mainly protein foods, thinking that you are eating a high fat, low carb diet

This has something to do with misunderstanding number 2. Often people think that they are eating a high fat, low carb diet, but in reality they are far from it. Most are mislead by the low carb part of the name and they make the assumption that by lowering the carb intake, that means that they are eating high fat. I hear people, sharing how they eat just meat and salads and they feel constantly starving. If they ate pork, it would still be better, but the problem is that most people, who make that mistake eat mainly chicken.

If you lower your carbs, you need to increase the amount of fats you eat. Otherwise you won’t be getting enough energy and this will make you feel tired and starving all the time!

In order to not make this mistake, first learn which foods contain fats, proteins and carbs. I am not trying to make you count calories and proportions, but try to always have a protein source, a fat source and veggies(carbs) in your plate!

I recommend you read this:
