Basics For Starting a Low Carb Diet

Low carb diets have become popular because they are an easy way to lose weight fast.

But, before starting on this eating plan, educate yourself on the types of foods you can eat.

It is also helpful to have a quick reference guide for counting the grams of carbs in various foods.

In the beginning stages of the diet, you will want to limit your daily net carb count at about 30 grams. Net carbs are the total carbs minus the fiber.

The daily carb intake varies so you will need to determine the best level for you to continue losing weight. The key is to eat fewer carbohydrates than your body burns in a day. Typically, the carbs can be slowly increased as long as weight loss continues.

People with slower metabolisms will need to keep the carb count extremely low for the duration of the diet in order to continue to lose weight.

Taking a supplement to boost metabolism or consulting a doctor regarding prescription medications may be required if ongoing weight loss becomes difficult. Continue reading Basics For Starting a Low Carb Diet

Weight Loss and Other Health Benefits of the Ketogenic Diet

If you have been checking out weight loss diets, it is highly unlikely that you haven’t come across the ketogenic diet. If not, on my last article I talk more in depth about what is the Keto diet and how you can start living a keto lifestyle.

The ketogenic diet or keto diet focuses on drastically cutting down carbohydrates and increasing the intake of proteins and fats. The whole premise of the keto diet is restricting carbohydrates instead of calories. When there are fewer carbs, your body breaks down fat as the main source of energy.

This leads to effective weight loss. But it’s not just weight loss that a ketogenic diet can help you achieve. A lot of studies have been conducted on how a keto diet can help and even prevent certain diseases.

All about Grain-Free, The Cavewoman’s Diet

I’m sure you’ve heard the term “Grain-free” by now. Most people have heard of it, but many are not quite sure what it is. I’m here to tell you all about Grain free Grain-Free and why it is hands-down the ultimate way to eat and to live.

To explain – picture yourself as a cavewoman millions of years ago. There was no such thing as cooking, let alone electricity to do it. So what would you eat? The answer is: anything that you can find.

Cavemen and women ate anything they could find in an effort to survive: fish, meat, seeds, nuts, and greens made up the majority of their diet.

Is the Gluten Free Diet Just a Fad?

Gluten is an essential protein usually found in rye, barley, and wheat kernel that we consume every day. It comes in different forms and is often found in products such as wheat flour or other wheat-based products like malt vinegar, soy sauce, and a lot more.

People diagnosed with celiac disease must be very careful to limit or completely remove gluten from their diets.
