Abstract [sv]

Studiens syfte var att undersöka psykisk hälsa och välbefinnande i en

grupp som äter LCHF (Low Carb High Fat). I studien deltog 246 personer,

rekryterade från intressegrupper om LCHF på Facebook. Deltagarna delades

in i två grupper efter hur strikt och hur länge de ätit LCHF. Studien

genomfördes som en enkätundersökning. Psykiskt välbefinnande och

nedsatt psykiskt välbefinnande undersöktes med GHQ-12. Psykiskt

hälsotillstånd undersöktes med en självskattad retrospektiv före- och

eftermätning. Resultaten av nedsatt psykiskt välbefinnande jämfördes med

Folkhälsomyndighetens nationella populationsvärde.

Resultaten visade att båda LCHF-grupperna skattade sitt psykiska

hälsotillstånd signifikant bättre efter LCHF diet än före. Hela LCHF

gruppen skattade nedsatt psykiskt välbefinnande signifikant bättre än den

svenska populationen. Resultaten tyder på att LCHF diet har en positiv

inverkan på den psykiska hälsan och välbefinnandet.

Abstract [en]

The purpose of the study was to investigate mental health and mental

well-being in a group eating LCHF (Low Carb High Fat). In the study, 246

people recruited from interest groups about LCHF on Facebook

participated. The participants were divided into two groups by how strictly

and how long they had eaten LCHF. The study was conducted as a

questionnaire survey. Mental well-being and impaired mental well-being

were investigated with GHQ-12. Mental health status was investigated with

self-assessed retrospective pre- and post-measurement. The results of

impaired mental well-being were compared with the The Public Health

Agency of Swedens national population value.

The results showed that both LCHF groups estimated their mental

health status significantly better after LCHF diet than before. The entire

LCHF group estimated its impaired mental well-being significantly better

than the Swedish population. The results indicate that LCHF diet has a

positive impact on mental health and well-being.
