It’s Time To Fire Up The Grill And Get Healthy By Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Man on December 10, 2015

Who doesn’t love barbecue? Especially as the months get warmer and the grills come out of hibernation from the winter, nothing tastes better than some well done barbecue. While many people don’t see this as health food, for Birgitta Höglund it’s DEFINITELY a part of her healthy low-carb, high-fat lifestyle.

LCHF is a concept that has taken the world by storm and Birgitta is on the front lines of sharing this through her incredible books. This is a fabulous first book to get if you are new to low-carb, high-fat eating because you’ll be amazed at how delicious it really is. Fire up the grill and get healthy!

The Ketogenic Cookbook

The Ketogenic Cookbook

A Beautiful Cookbook

Some time ago, I recieved a very nice cookbook delivery from the US.
The sender was Jimmy Moore, the man behind the blog “Livin’ La Vida Low – Carb“, who sent me a copy of his latest book.

This is his first cookbook, co-authored with Maria Emmerich, a very well-known
cookbook author within LCHF/Keto/Paleo.

She also runs the blog Maria Mind Body Health. Take a look at her blog and get inspired
by all the delicious recipess she posts.

Salmon from The Ketogenic Cookbook

The Ketogenic Cookbook is really heavy, both in size and in the quality of the recipes.

This is an absolutely wonderful cookbook. It’s actually one of the most beautiful cookbooks I have ever seen, and I’ve seen quite a few of them since I started to work as a restaurant chef back in 1984.

It has what I think is the most important thing for a cookbook, delicious looking pictures to all recipes.

The recipes also includes a lot of vegetables. It’s great to see other cookbook authors in this genre, showing that a ketogenic diet isn’t just limited to bacon, eggs and butter.

Jimmy Moore has actually a part in my cookbooks finding their way to the US, they were all released in English this summer.

Just two weeks after I started my Swedish blog, Birgitta Höglund’s Food, 6 years ago, I wrote an email to Jimmy and he published a link to it on his blog.

In the same post I found a link to the very inspiring website Low-Carb Lifestyle, written by Clark and Nina Wagaman, who has been on a LCHF/Keto-lifestyle for over 10 years.

We became blogfriends, and I sent them my cookbooks in Swedish.

Nina, who is a photographer, liked my books and told me I should try to get them published in English.

She sent me the adress to Skyhorse Publishing in New York. I wrote to them and and after a couple of months they decided to publish all my cookbooks 🙂

This spring I joined over 200 Lowcarbers at Jimmy’s Low-Carb Cruise in the Carribbean. Blogging can lead to many interesting meetings.

Low-Carb Cruise 2015

LCHF Cruise

In the last week of May I made my first trip to America, specifically to Florida along with 200 other people to take part in my first Low-Carb CruiseA great way to meet many others with a similar interest in healthful food, listen to lectures, see a lot of the Caribbean archipelago and enjoy life.

In December I was interviewed by medical journalist Åsa Holstein for a Swedish magazine about my health benefits from a gluten free LCHF diet. We became quite close via email and when I decided to participate in the cruise I thought I’d take the opportunity to meet with Åsa, who lives in Fort Lauderdale. She decided to come along on the cruise and picked me up when I arrived at the airport.


I stayed at Åsa and her husband Pierre’s house for a few nights, a more hospitable couple than these two is hard to find.

They have lived in Florida for six years now, and the climate has been great for Åsa’s health. Like me, she too has had back surgery and a lot of problems with pain and fatigue.

Åsa, Pierre and I share a common interest in good and natural foods, health and exercise, so we had many long conversations on these topics.

They live just a ten-minute drive from the port so we arrived to the ship, Independence of the Seas, early Sunday afternoon. We didn’t have to stand in line while boarding, we just went directly to our beautiful cabin when we boarded the ship.

The food in the main dining room was easily adaptable to LCHF, butter was already out on all tables so it was easy to increase the fat content. The dishes on the menu, different every evening, were marked with symbols for different food allergies so many dishes could be served completely gluten-free on request.

The most delicious meal of the entire week was the lobster in garlic butter.

Quite a few doctors were on the cruise and held lectures, so we were given a lot of interesting facts about the latest news on LCHF.
Low-carb diets have been popular in the US for many years, but now in recent years, high fat has also become a part of this, or as many call it, the ketogenic diet. Eating a high proportion of fat, a moderate amount of protein (about 18–20% of the daily intake) while cutting back drastically on carbohydrates by removing sugar and starches has proven to be successful for many people’s health and weight problems.

Dr. Keith Runyan and Dr. Eric Westman opened the first day of lectures with interesting facts about what LCHF and Ketogenic diet can do for patients with Diabetes, both Type 1 and Type 2. Our Swedish DietDoctor, Andreas Eenfeldt, was present with his team and video recorded all lectures, many of them will be available on DietDoctor’s Membersite.

Andreas held a very inspiring lecture on the health situation in the world and how we easily can turn many health problems and obesity around by using a diet with fewer carbs.
Dr. Justin Marchegiani held a very interesting lecture about the link between our hormones, thyroid problems and chronic pain and fatigue. Dr. Marchegiani has been suffering from these problems himself, now he helps many of his patients to get healthier by changing their diet. Here’s an article about gluten and the problems it can cause to the brain when you are living with gluten sensitivity.
A few others I could mention is Dr. Ann Childers who talked about the diet from an evolutionary perspective. Dr. Jose Lozada gave a very interesting lecture on the treatment of cancer patients with LCHF.

Dana Carpender, acclaimed low-carb cookbook author, living with an ADHD diagnosis, has improved her health with an LCHF diet. We talked for a while about our common interest in writing cookbooks. Unfortunately, the English edition of my Low Carb High Fat Barbecue didn’t arrive from my publisher in time for the cruise, but I had a Swedish copy to present. Dana was impressed by the pictures that Mikael Eriksson has taken for my cookbooks.

My first cookbook in English, now available at Amazon…

I had a long and very inspiring conversation with Dr. Philip Blair and his wife Aida. Philip support a lot of patients worldwide through consultations on the web. Aida has, like me, been suffering from fibromyalgia and she also has become healthier on a gluten free LCHF-diet.
