Default simpler?

is low carb eating this simple?
hard cheeses, nuts, eggs, meats, fish,
lowest carb veggies, butter,
that's all i can come up with but i need it to be simple
is there more choices?
it doesn't seem to be a lot to eat choices wise

how does one add more fat without eating fat on its own?

Bullet proof coffee; putting butter on your steak, fish, chicken; going to the recipe section and making fat bombs for snacking; using coconut oil wherever you can; enjoying lots of Blu-cheese dressing on salads; I'll think of more but probably not before someone else posts here!

Well, if you're thinking that you only eat these things in isolation, could be limiting. But if you think of them as ingredients for cooking and baking, then the variety is almost endless.

Our recipe board is full of great LCHF recipes, some of them are quite simple to make. And there are examples of meals in the Diet section here Diabetes Diet and Nutrition - The Diabetes Forum Support Community For Diabetics Online

I am able to keep the my fat consumption up by having fats available to put on other foods. If I have a hamburger patty, I spread bacon grease over it. If I have a salad, I use lots of olive oil to make a vinaigrette dressing (using Stevia to sweeten) and then, when I've eaten the salad, I drink the leftover dressing.

When I started LCHF eating back in May of 2015, I too felt like the limitations on what I could eat was problematic. Boy did I find out I was wrong....but it take time and research on this site and others to find a continuous list of menus of things you like and can eat.....it can be done! Some of my favorites are:

Low Carb Cheese Cake (desert)
Low Carb Scones w/ Pecans (breakfast, I substituted Pecans because my meter tells me that blueberries are a no, no for me)
Cauliflower tater tots! (Side dish)
Egg and Sausage breakfast casserole (Breakfast)
Nuts (be careful most nuts are High Carb)...except, Macadamia, Pecans, Walnuts, and Almonds...
Fried Pork Rinds w/Low Carb Salsa
Lettuce wraps
Hamburgers w/cheese/ dill pickles/ mustard/ all wrapped in lettuce.
Fried Bratwursts w/cheese/ dill pickles/ mustard/ all wrapped in lettuce.

And every morning two large cups of coffee with plenty of heavy whipping cream

That outta get you some options.....to consider....

Good Luck

Sometimes I find it limiting, but usually that's when I'm being lazy and am not stocking my pantry and making snacks ahead of time. Relying on whatever I can throw together in 15 minutes or can get at a restaurant quickly reduces my choices.

It really helps to make high fat, low carb snacks ahead of time that I can grab when I'm hungry. It can be the difference between whether I stay on the wagon or drive to the ice cream store at 10 o'clock at night and binge.
