The Banting Diet: What it’s About + How it Works


17 Comments

The Banting Diet has taken South Africa by storm. It means eating low carbs and high fat (LCHF). Whenever you eat, choose more fatty stuff to fill you up and little or no carbs at all. You’re allowed between 25 to 50g/100g carbs a day, so you can have some carbs (list of foods in this bracket below). There are no portion sizes to stick to. You pretty much eat as much as you want until you’re full. The idea is that your body knows when it’s full and it will tell you. You don’t have to overeat, and by no means should you undereat. Below are foods you can eat and can’t eat. I also give the Cape Townians places which serve Banting dishes.
