LoCho life - a way of life - a lifestyle choice - ‘slow carb’
Many of us are choosing a lower carb diet as we understand and recognise that a diet high in carbohydrates can be detrimental to our overall wellbeing. Lower carb diets can historically be boring and repetitive and this is where LoCho is the obvious choice, it allows variety and confidence that not only eating this won’t break my low carb promise, but creates flavour, texture and bite.
Carbohydrates can have a significant impact on the amount of glucose in your blood. By lowering carbs, you can keep insulin at healthy levels and influence body fat stores. In fact, reducing carbohydrate intake is a common weight loss strategy for many people. It causes stored fat to be used for energy so that you can burn it off.
Carbohydrates are a necessary macronutrient and act as our body’s main source of energy, they help to fuel your brain (the brain accounts for 25% of the body’s carbohydrate use), kidneys, muscles and the central nervous system, Carbs are naturally occurring sugars, starches and fibre in food.
The Locho way is to ensure our bread has the complex carbohydrates that are higher in fibre and therefore digested slowly to keep you fuller for longer, staving off hunger pangs, we’re all about the good carbs.
Want to live a healthier, happier lifestyle? You’ve come to the right place!

Why live healthily?
Healthy living means different things to different people. For some, it’s about staying active and really getting those bodies moving. For others, it’s about eating a nutrient-rich and diverse diet. But ultimately, healthy living is about taking care of ourselves to achieve two things. Keeping our bodies working as well as they possibly can – and feeling good about ourselves, mentally and physically.

Obstacles to healthy living
With so many benefits, why haven't we all been living healthily all along?
Because it’s not always simple. Healthy living isn’t a science – it's an art.
Of course, we all have an idea of what’s healthy and what’s unhealthy. Eating plenty of fruit and veg? Healthy. Scoffing too many sweets? Not so healthy. But the truth is that every body works differently.
For example, as part of a healthy lifestyle, we’re often told to eat more healthy carbohydrates. Things like wholewheat bread. Skin-on potatoes. Corn. Quinoa. And so on. But this isn’t right for everyone.
We’re all different. And our bodies all respond to things in different ways. While carbohydrates are technically healthy, they can also cause symptoms in some people that make them feel anything but!
Understanding what healthy living looks like to us is key.
Lower carb alternatives
Lower carb alternatives, like our LoCho bread, make healthy living a little more straightforward. We've designed our lower carb bread to reduce dietary carbs, without compromising on nutrition.
LoCho loaf and LoCho rolls work to bridge the nutritional gap. We’re here to help you to live a healthier lifestyle, even if your body doesn’t respond to traditional healthy living recommendations.
LoCho as part of a healthy diet
At LoCho, we offer two beautifully tasty lower carb breads:
Both of our lower carb breads fit in effortlessly with any sort of healthy change.
Making some dietary changes as part of your healthy living plan? Be sure to eat a varied diet containing plenty of vital protein, healthy fats, vitamins, minerals, and fibre. LoCho lower carb breads are packed full of all these things. With a blend of linseeds, oat fibre, chia seeds, and sunflower seeds, our lower carb bread is bursting with magnesium, vitamin B, iron, calcium, and much more.
Did you know that exercise can reduce the risk of developing conditions like heart disease, stroke, and Type II diabetes? So moving more is definitely a good way to make healthy changes. But your body needs energy. Carbs are often recommended to fuel a workout, but protein and healthy fats are excellent energy sources, too. And you’ll find plenty of both in your LoCho loaf and LoCho bread rolls.
Healthy living is often viewed as boring or restrictive. But with LoCho, living healthily is different. We believe that anyone can live an enjoyable, healthy lifestyle – without giving up their favourite foods. A bacon butty on a lazy Sunday morning? Why not? A juicy burger at a summer BBQ? No problem. A healthy lifestyle doesn’t mean saying ‘no’. It just means saying ‘yes’ to the right things.
Whatever small changes you’re planning to make as part of your healthy living initiative, we’re here to help. We believe that living a healthier lifestyle doesn’t have to be hard. It just has to be LoCho.
Why choose LoCho as your healthy living partner?
What makes LoCho different? We think that healthy living is all about balance. To us, lower carb doesn’t have to mean carb-free. It just means producing great-tasting bread, with fewer carbs.
LoCho loaf and LoCho rolls contain less than 6g of carbs per 100g. So opting to eat a lower carb diet with LoCho doesn’t mean entirely eradicating all carbs – and their fantastic nutrition. LoCho makes it easy to reduce the amount of carbs in your diet, without missing out on any of the good stuff.
