From better sleep to a flatter stomach and a more sculpted face: The 32 (very) surprising results of spending ten-days on a high-fat, no carb diet


Tired of being tired, Victoria Woodhall tried a radical ten-day eating plan

This involved eating plenty of high-fat foods while ditching all possible carbs

As featured on Get The Gloss, here she details the rather unexpected benefits


Tired of being tired, Victoria Woodhall tried a radical ten-day eating plan to boost her energy levels. But could this really be possible without a single carb?

Ditching bread and potatoes, she dined-out on salmon, tuna, eggs, chicken, leaf spinach, rocket, cucumber, sugar snap peas, mushrooms, pumpkin and sunflower seeds, parmesan and pine nuts, mozzarella, halloumi, cream cheese, olive oil, apple cider vinegar, coconut oil, coconut cream, raw cacao, basil, mint and coriander.

Here are the 32 things she discovered along the way:

I haven't read the article yet, but I'm assuming by "not a single carb", what she really means is no hearthealthywholegrains, no potatoes - basically no starches and sugars. That list of foods she was eating has quite a few things that have carbs. So if she was eating any plant matter at all, she was getting carbs in her diet. Even her eggs and cheeses have carbs, albeit in very small amounts.

I really do hate how the media spin on LC is always that it has no carbs at all, even when obviously even the ones claiming they're eating no carbs are eating at least some carbs.

Read thru the entire ORGINAL 32 observations... a delight. A delight to read all the points Dr Atkins hits upon. And yes, meals once again become a well composed combo of meats, variety of vegies and nuts. Or what ever is your choice of meat and a veg to make a meal akin to restautant quality.

She's right about the coconut cream, it's divine.

Interesting how coconut cream and milk have been around so long, yet people never got around to mistaking it for real dairy.

I thought coconut milk was what you got out of cows when you fed them coconuts.
