Lost Weight By Cutting Carbs

I did lose weight by cutting carbs.  I cut a lot of carbs out and it did work for me. I lost 40 lbs but it took me almost 6 months.  I found it pretty easy to follow.  It’s pretty to eat.  The foods on the diet consisted of vegetables and meat.  I didn’t eat fruit for almost 4 months. 

After a few weeks you don’t really crave the carbs and you can stay on it pretty regularly.  I did the diet during holidays and didn’t have that much trouble.  But after almost a year I wanted to eat something.  I think everybody’s ethnic and familial lifestyles affect them.  For me, it was not eating rice for so long that I missed.  I am a big sushi eater so this was a sacrifice for me.  I wanted to eat a pizza, or pasta and these were off limits to me. 

When I went off the diet I gained everything and more.  The truth is, this type of eating plan can only be something you consider to be a diet and temporary.  Nobody wants to eat meat and vegetables solely for the rest of their lives.  It’s impractical.  The best diet would be one that you can keep up for the rest of your life.  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.  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.  Drinking a glass of water with my meal has helped me to eat less. 

Also,  I try to take smaller bites and chew more.  Along with this tip, is using smaller plates. Smaller bites and smaller plates seem to help with eating less.  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!

Low Carbohydrate Or No Carbohydrates – What Role Carbohydrates Play in Your Weight Loss Plan

After experimenting with several weight loss strategies, and obtaining very marginal if any results, I’ve come to the conclusion that all diets need some form of carbohydrates to  work the best.

Let me explain, for instance you can go with a no carbohydrate, all protein diet, eliminating carbohydrates completely from your diet, but the downside to this is that you ingest more fat than is reasonably healthy. Side effects include high blood pressure, elevated creatine levels, and in some cases higher cholesterol. You can lose weight with a no carbohydrate diet but energy levels can suffer. The body needs carbohydrates especially in the morning, when energy levels need to be restored for the duties of the day, if your body runs out of fuel it searches for the next available source of glycogen and that is the muscles, this is counter productive if you’re also exercising to help with your weight loss. So for obvious health reasons a complete carbohydrate free diet is not the best idea.

The most effective way to lose weight and shed fat pounds is to cycle your carbohydrate intake between low and moderate good carbohydrate intake. The key here is to consume healthy clean burning carbohydrates, called complex carbohydrates, and avoid the starchy ones, especially if you are not active. If  the starches aren’t converted into energy then they become fat. Foods you want to avoid include white bread, white rice, sodas, cookies, potato chips, white refined sugars, white pasta, etc.

The best carbohydrates are the ones that don’t cause an immediate spike in blood sugar levels, this occurs because of the direct to blood stream effect starchy, sugary foods have in our blood stream. Better choices would be any 100%whole wheat bread, whole wheat or spinach pasta, plain oatmeal, brown rice, almonds, sweet potatoes, broccoli, and baked potato chips.

A successful weight loss plan should include foods that have sufficient amounts of proteins, carbohydrates, and even some fats. For maximum effectiveness exercise should be included, and yes you need carbohydrates to give your body fuel to burn, until your body has been trained to burn fats more efficiently.

A short booklet I recently published called “How to lose 36 lbs in 6 weeks” lists several good fat burning recipes and lists foods with no fat making properties.
