The LCHF traveller

Every time I return home from a trip somewhere, I come to the conclusion that LCHF definitely is the easiest and best way of lifestyle, even when travelling.

It helps if you are prepared a bit.

On our last trip to the Baviaanskloof, where two meals a day were provided, I still did a bit of packing. I also knew that there would be lots of eating and drinking and the one thing I really don’t want to do, is falling off the LCHF wagon! No! Not after two years doing it and I’m doing so well on it, I really don’t want to start over again.

I did cheat a little bit, drank some brandy, mixed with Coke Lite and also a glass or two of red wine. Yes, we are allowed to drink red wine, but I usually drink only one glass per week since I am very near my goal weight and is very sensitive nowadays of eating the wrong things.

So I packed lots of pecan nuts and almonds, a variety of cheeses and salami. Oh, I love these things! You know, in the past, before the LCHF days, these were the things with witch I’ve always cheated, now I am allowed to eat them as much as I like!

I also packed a few tomatoes, for when the salads provided were potato salad or beetroot.

After 4 days of eating way to much I can say: LCHF is definitely the way to go. The scale didn’t move an inch! Yes! And the reason for it? Because I ate the food that is allowed to eat, even while I ate a bit more than usual. And what’s more? In the past, when I was still on a ‘balanced diet’, on a trip like this I would have gained more than 2 kilo’s and at home the eating would continue, but not with LCHF. Now my appetite is less because my body has to adapt and within a day everything will be normal again.

LCHF rocks! LCHF is a lifestyle, not a diet and really, not difficult to do, even when you are travelling.

  1. I’ve been reading the Prof Noakes saga written by Marika Sboros… I’m so glad his side are gaining popularity and seemingly educating the public and the doubter!! I will soon be ordering your book… ha to be the English version o the family can understand!
    Ai – Baviaans Kloof… hoe verlang ek nou!!! Toe ons laas daar was het ek tuna steaks gebraai!! Ons het dit gevries saamgeneem… my bek water nou nog!!! 😉


    1. Kan jy glo! Tuna steaks in Bav Kloof. Ek sou dink beessteaks! 🙂
      Iemand bel my een dag en vra of ek weet hoe om dit gaar te maak. Ek het nie geweet hoe nie. Na lang speach oor nie te oud om te leer nie, sê hy, hy sal my kom wys hoe, maar net een keer.
      Ek antwoord toe dat ek hom dan sal wys hoe E mol op die kitaar lyk, maar ook net een keer.
      Ek dink hy het toe maar self die tuna geëet.


      1. Lang storie kort. Ek’s ‘n Type2 diabeet. Ek is gatv*l vir die dokters en weet daar is ‘n beter manier! My vrou is ‘n bietjie skeptie… sy’s die Englse een so ek wil jou boek kry sodat sy kan sien dis nie ‘n rykman’s affêre nie.
        Ek het ‘n hele paar poste gekryf oor die euwil van “statins”… ek is lelik ingedoen deur die gif! Kliek op die reënboog prentjie regs bo op my blog as jy wil lees… 😉
