Reduce fat intake? On a low carb or ketogenic diet?
Amy, have you done lost yo' mind?
You know people use the abbreviation “LCHF,” right? And that means low carb high fat, right?
Yes. Yes, I know. But remember what Ted Naiman, MD, said:
Too much fat?
On a ketogenic diet?
What is this madness you speak of?
Too much fat. On a ketogenic diet.
This is possible. It is, as they say, “a thing.”
· Mustard – yellow, spicy brown, dijon, horseradish – all are fine except honey mustard
· Pickles/relish – read labels; some contain sugar or HFCS
· Soy sauce, fish sauce, coconut aminos, or tamari (wheat-free soy sauce)
· Vinegar – all varieties are fine, but go easier on balsamic (slightly higher in carbs)

Here are some simple swaps & substitutions that will keep the flavor while reducing the fat:

If you’re aiming for fat loss, think higher protein, lower carb, and lower fat. Not only is this a post-bariatric surgery diet intended to help people lose fat and keep it off, but it’s also an approximation of the diet bodybuilders use to lean out. You’ve already mastered the low carb part. Now, to get the stubborn body fat moving, cut back a bit on fat. This doesn’t mean you’ll be living on grilled tilapia and steamed broccoli, or skinless chicken breast over lettuce. I don’t mean for this post to make anyone afraid of eating fat. Fat is delicious and yummy and good for us. What I’m trying to say is, when you’re looking for fat loss, the percentage of calories you’re getting from fat will be high, but only some of that will come from dietary fat. The rest of it will come from your own body’s stored fat. You will be able to increase the amount of dietary fat you consume as you get closer to your goal weight and there is less stored fat for your body to draw upon. And when you get to the point where you are trying to maintain weight (not lose any more), you might be able to eat even more.
