The Super Elusive Triple Digit Weight Loss Diet
Do not consume all your carbohydrates for the day in one setting. It does not work that way. Spread out your carbohydrates all day long. Around five per meal is best – if you need to go up to ten at a meal, it shouldn’t be too bad.
When you’re cheating, fifteen or twenty carbohydrates aren’t going to wreck your whole new way of life – but you wont lose any weight while you’re doing that. Keep this to special occasions or a day on the weekend if you can.
If you ever do go astray from this new way of life for more than a few meals, go back into induction for a week or two. This would mean no sweets (not even Truvia or Stevia) or caffeine. This should set the record straight and get you back on the road to success...
With all of the amazing low carb products available these days - it's easy to stick to this way of life. In my opinion, you'll still lose weight even if you don't exercise, but you’ll lose the weight a lot quicker if you do. Why not get physical and lose the weight right away? Plus, as mentioned, exercise is good for your body in many different ways.
You may have heard that once you stop eating carbohydrates, your craving for them stops as well. I believe this is absolutely true! Once I stopped eating carbohydrates, I didn’t have the desire for them anymore. Try the low carbohydrate way of life and I’d be willing to bet this works the same for you as well.
Somehow or another, carbohydrates make your body need more carbohydrates. Nowadays, I probably have at most (I really don’t count anymore) fifty carbohydrates per day and I never need any more than that. I'm very active and I never run out of energy. I actually have more energy now than I did before when I ate thousands of carbohydrates per day.
I won’t lie to you and say that I never want something from a fast food restaurant anymore. But, I can say that I no longer have the need for that kind of food. I don’t crave it like I used to. But if I really want to, I can have a meal - no problem. Just as long as the rest of my day is proper low carb.
Before I went low carb, (besides all the carbohydrates I’d eat/drank at meals) I'd have at least one Gatorade and a "Perfect Carbs" high carbohydrate energy drink before and/or after my workout.
You have no idea how much money I save every week drinking water from the water fountain (free) or bottled water as opposed to buying these drinks at the gym or local vitamin store. Plus, with all the food that I don't eat anymore, I save a real lot of money.
No more multiple daily trips to fast food restaurants and snack cravings for ice cream, cookies or cakes! This way of life makes me feel great, saves me lots of money, and has me in the best shape of my life at forty-five years old.
Wait a minute! Let me tell you something that’s going to be hard to believe – and I have no idea how it works this way. But. When I do cheat, I seem thinner the next day. I can’t imagine how, but my stomach is always tighter the day after. It’s beyond me! Maybe it temporarily raises my metabolism - which is burning fat for fuel as it is.
I never seem to gain weight anymore. I put two and two together to come up with this conclusion. Friends of mine that had done Atkins told me that even when they came off of Atkins, they still lost weight for a while.
Do you know what this tells me? It tells me that I can 'come off' my low carbohydrate way of life every now and then without having to worry about gaining weight - and so far it's working.
Sometimes I eat bread. I'll go to my favorite Steakhouse and eat that great bread that comes before your meal. No problem. Sometimes I eat that 'no fat, no sugar' ice cream you see in ice cream stores. The 'no sugar' only really means no 'added' sugar. So, there's still sugar because of the milk. But, no weight gain.
Sometimes I eat a few bites of a slice of pizza with extra cheese and pepperoni along with the tomato sauce. Tomato sauce has sugar! But, since I don't do it all the time, my body still isn't sure what to do with the sugar - or the bread. So, it goes by without adding fat to my body.
I believe that as long as you don’t consume these types of foods too frequently, your body won’t have enough time to remember it’s what it used to use for energy.
P.S. This just in. Before I finished writing all of this – I went to two weddings in one weekend. On Friday night I did a lot of cheating. I drank some of the sweet white wine and had a bunch of hors devours. Then, Saturday night I had a real lot of hors devours and even half of a real chocolate bar.
I kind of wanted to see what would happen and just as I suspected; no weight gain. I went back to my normal low carbohydrate way of life and everything turned out fine. So, I really think my theory about not allowing your body to remember what it does with carbohydrates works. As long as you go back to your low carb way of life and stay there - consistently...
Important. When starting a change as drastic as this, you should always consult your doctor first. Let your doctor know what you’re doing and get a blood test. The blood test will help you later on because after a month or so you should get another blood test. See where your cholesterol levels are. According to most people who move to this new way of life, their bad cholesterol goes down – even with higher fat intake.
There are plenty of people who don’t believe losing weight and staying fit with the low carb lifestyle won’t work. Find out for yourself. The only things you’ll be missing out on are sugar (no nutritional value in sugar) and some of the fiber you might normally get from fruits and/ or vegetables. Any fiber you need can and should be replaced with a fiber supplement such as 100% pure Physillium Husk.
Altogether, this is a very simple way to become thin. It doesn’t “require” starving yourself, working out or taking pills to burn fat. This is a natural way to have your body burn fat for energy. What better system could there be?
