I did lose weight by cutting carbs.Â I cut a lot of carbs out and it did work for me. I lost 40 lbs but it took me almost 6 months.Â I found it pretty easy to follow.Â It’s pretty to eat.Â The foods on the diet consisted of vegetables and meat.Â I didn’t eat fruit for almost 4 months.Â
After a few weeks you don’t really crave the carbs and you can stay on it pretty regularly.Â I did the diet during holidays and didn’t have that much trouble.Â But after almost a year I wanted to eat something.Â I think everybody’s ethnic and familial lifestyles affect them.Â For me, it was not eating rice for so long that I missed.Â I am a big sushi eater so this was a sacrifice for me.Â I wanted to eat a pizza, or pasta and these were off limits to me.Â
When I went off the diet I gained everything and more.Â The truth is, this type of eating plan can only be something you consider to be a diet and temporary.Â Nobody wants to eat meat and vegetables solely for the rest of their lives.Â It’s impractical.Â The best diet would be one that you can keep up for the rest of your life.Â It would be part of your life and would be healthy and practical.
Currently, I’m eating 5 smaller meals a day consisting of lean meats, vegetables, fruits and whole grains. It increases your metabolism.Â You have much more energy and your not as hungry because you are eating more frequently.
The other thing is I’ve tried to drink at least 8 glasses of water a day which helps you to feel fuller.Â Drinking a glass of water with my meal has helped me to eat less.Â
Also,Â I try to take smaller bites and chew more.Â Along with this tip, is using smaller plates. Smaller bites and smaller plates seem to help with eating less.Â I know it sounds corny but it does work.
I lost weight by cutting carbs and it does work for the short term but the harsh reality is that you can’t really keep it up for the rest of your life. Do you want to lose weight fast and healthy? Get more FREE info by clicking here!
