Welcome to the LCHF Club!
My name is Alex and I am the author of The LCHF Club! which, as the name suggests focuses entirely on the LCHF lifestyle. I also pen another blog called The Travelling Chopsticks which covers a vast array of topics (usually all food related), ranging from travel, food, cooking and life as an expat.
A Little About Me.
I am a half Britt, half Swede who grew up in Singapore – I am passionately loyal to all three but don’t feel I belong to any of them. I am currently living in Brasilia, Brazil with my husband who works for the Foreign Service – which is why we move around so much. I am also crazy about my two cats Khloe and Pixie who sometimes make appearances in this blog and my instagram account, for no other reason than because they are cute!
A Little About The LCHF Club.
You can read about how I got interested in LCHF here, and how I have my brother Patrik and his girlfriend Erica to thank for getting me hooked J
Originally this blog had a TERRIBLE name: LCHF…What?! I know! It is horrendous! But initially this blog was never meant for anyone else but me. The hubby and I had decided to eat strict LCHF for one month to see if this diet was something for us, and during that one month period, I used the blog as a form of diary. Daily I wrote what I was eating and how I was feeling. If you would like to read my first foray into the world of LCHF, please click here.
Over time the blog started to grow naturally. I started to become increasingly interested in LCHF and the more I read and the more I researched the more I wanted to share with people what I had found. Surprisingly people started to follow the blog – there seemed to be a lot of interest in this topic. Today, this blog no longer charts my tentative exploration into the world of LCHF, but rather it shows my commitment to the LCHF way of life. The LCHF Club was born!
As LCHF is incredibly popular in Sweden and the other Nordic country, I have realised that there is a lot of great information out there on LCHF, but unfortunately for you non-Swedish speakers, the majority of it is not in English. So it is my hope that The LCHF Club can provide a place where non-Swede LCHFers and potential LCHFers can visit to get some quality information and some great inspiration on what to eat on the LHCF diet.
I would also like this blog to act as a sort of forum. A place where we can have discussions on LCHF, learn and get advice from one another as well as inspire each other. If you would like to share your achievements with the rest of the LCHF community, please feel free to email me your story and I will publish it on The LCHF Club, so you can inspire others!
I look forward to hearing from you!
