Welome to my blog

I am a Norwegian girl living in Australia. Around a year ago I started on what I thought would be a temporary low-carb diet to shed a few kilos. But after having tried this new way of eating for a few months, not only had I lost a lot of weight, I also felt great!  My energy-levels no longer took a nose-dive three hours after each meal like they used to. And what happend to my insane sugar-cravings that regularly led to me inhaling 200 grams of chocolate or eating half a tub of ice-cream in a go? All gone! And best of all, my mysterious stomach problems settled on the third day of eating low carb, never to return again. My low carb "diet" soon turned into a lifestyle, and now there's no doubt that I'm never going back.

Why am I writing this blog? Low carb, or LCHF (low carb high fat) as we call it back home, is big in Scandinavia. And there are hundreds of people blogging about their lifestyle, sharing receipes and tips around LCHF living. These blogs have been such an inspiration to me and is the sole reason that I have managed to make LCHF eating second nature. I haven't found blogs like this in Australia - yet. So, I thought that perhaps I could inspire some Aussies struggling with their weight the way I myself have become inspired and excited about a low carb lifestyle. A second reason for writing this blog is that it will function as a place for me to keep my favourite receipes: Once I make something really yummy I tend to forget where I've found the receipe, but now I can keep them all in one space.

I hope you enjoy this blog!
