What is a Low Carb, Healthy Fat or Banting way of eating?

The basis of our recipes follow a Low Carb Healthy Fat (LCHF) way of eating, which we follow in alignment with the Real Meal Revolution/Banting lifestyle using information & scientific research sourced by Professor Noakes and his Real Meal Revolution team.

Hence we adhere to the Green Orange and Red lists. Green is eat freely, Orange is occasional, and Red we stay well away from.
