First of all, there’s good carbs, and BAD carbs. Do you all know what carbs are? Carbohydrates are broken down into glucose, which fuels your muscles, organs, brain, etc. Carbs are found in vegetables, fruit, nuts, bread, pasta, etc. With a low carb diet, you’ll go into ketosis, which can kill you. Just eat right! It’s not difficult. Do not be afraid of carbohydrates. It’s refined carbs that cause weight gain, such as refined white bread, white pasta, gluten, etc.
For instance, when I’m craving pizza, I’ll make it on my own using all organic and healthy ingredients. I’ll pick up the multi grain dough from whole foods, heriloom tomatoes, pizza sauce low sodium, fresh mushrooms, raw goats cheese, and fresh basil leaves. All costs me $12 for 2 large pizzas!!
Every single meal I plan, I make SURE it’s healthy. I ask myself “do I really want to put junk in my body?” I don’t mess around b/c I don’t want to diet and restrict my calories. If you want to lose weight, you have to give your body the proper nutrients, and you have to be active. Losing weight without working out isn’t healthy, if it involves restricting your calories.
If I have a craving for ice cream, I’ll make my own ice cream using my blender. I’ll freeze 5 organic peeled bananas in a bowl for a few hours. Then, I’ll put them in the blender with coconut milk and wild berries or whatever you’d like. Sometimes I’ll use raw cocoa for chocolate icecream. I get the raw cocoa from Whole Foods. It’s real chocolate from the bean, with no sugar added or anything but the grounded bean itself.
Dairy will make you gain weight, as will conventional animal meats. I highly suggest trying to be vegetarian to lose weight. I did it, and I lost 30lbs in 6 months with working out 1day/week. I also became really healthy and the weight hasn’t come back. I don’t eat any dairy products, no chicken, no pork, or beef. I’ll eat fish, from high quality sources at Whole Foods. I’ll get whatever that’s on sale each week. I’ll only eat raw goats cheese and full fat raw goats yogurt or keifer. Each morning I’ll have 2 organic pasture raised eggs with fruit.
~I hope this helps!!
