The Fat Experiment is all about living a life where fat is the largest part of my diet (80%) – with my health and well-being in mind… so, eating fat to be healthy.
This is an experiment because I’m trying something relatively new…something that up until recently, not many people had heard about…something that people today still balk at and say “You’re doing what?! You know that can kill you right…and you’ll get fat!” But when you read and listen enough, when you open your mind and allow yourself to hear a different tune, you might just discover that what we’ve been doing for so long, or been encouraged to do for so long, or some may even say have been manipulated to do for so long… is so wrong.
This is an experiment because I don’t always know what will really happen to me and my body. I know what the literature and experts tell me but I want to feel it and experience it for myself. I want to personally ride the journey and see what happens to my weight, my hormones, my moods, my hunger, my skin, my poo, my everything… I want to be the experiment and subsequently, the scientist.
So who am I? I’m a 34 year old woman, I’m a Melbournian (that’s an Australian from Melbourne) who is a new expat in Shanghai; I’m a teacher of language; I’m newly a student of Human Nutrition and writer; I’m a lover of cats; I’m a lover of exercise; I’m a lover of my new man. I’m passionate about health in ALL aspects (from the use of chemicals in our lives, to diet to gut to exercise to stress reduction to sleep…I believe it’s all connected) and now, I’m my own low carb healthy fat (LCHF) guinea pig. And that is why I’ve created The Fat Experiment.
As part of this experiment, I will be sharing my experiences of ketosis (what this is, means, how to get into it, measure it etc); sharing recipes and sharing things that will impact overall health and well-being.
If you would like to follow me on this journey (I’m doing this forever, it’s a lifestyle) and be a part of the LCHF/keto team that I hope grows with me, we can discover the joys, and challenges, together.
I hope you enjoy reading my blog and learning with me.
