Coconut oil and low carb

Friday, December 31st, 2010

So I hadn’t tried coconut oil in years.  The last time I tried it, it wasn’t very good.  And I didn’t enjoy consuming it.  I was cooking eggs with it and they just weren’t very palatable to me cooked in coconut oil.  I really prefer eggs and butter. But, having heard all the positive reviews […]

The right diet for your body

Thursday, December 23rd, 2010

I’ve been saying since day 1 that the low carb diet is the right diet for me.  I don’t know if it’s right for you.  Only your body knows that.  And every body is different. The key seems to be related to metabolic response and how your body reacts to sugar.  Some people don’t have […]

Cheating on low carb

Sunday, December 12th, 2010

Cheating on low carb?  That’s funny.  It’s better than cheating on your spouse.  Or cheating on a test.  But there are consequences. For me, low carb is a choice.  I choose to eat low carb, because I want to lose a fair amount of weight.  And nothing else seems to work for me like eating low […]

The one thing I changed that helped me lose weight

Sunday, December 12th, 2010

Having recently lost over 50 lbs in the last 4 months, I attribute one thing to that weight loss.  Ketosis.  Ketosis is the natural body process of primarily burning body fat instead of sugar for energy.  How can I be sure ketosis is the reason why I am losing so much weight so easily?  Because I […]

Healthy Low Carb

Wednesday, December 8th, 2010

I ran across someone saying they were eating meat and cheese as their sole diet.  The bacon and neon cheddar diet.  And yeah, that’s low carb, for sure.  In fact, practically no carb.  And I bet they are losing weight.  I just wonder how well they feel though?  And that’s not nutrient dense enough to […]

Low carb for quick weight loss

Wednesday, December 8th, 2010

Yes, it’s been my own personal experience that eating low carb will cause a rapid reduction in weight.  In just a couple weeks you could lose a significant amount of pounds.  I lost 15 lbs when I first started. However, the majority of that weight will be water weight.  And once you start eating carbs […]

What exactly is low carb?

Tuesday, December 7th, 2010

I have seen people say they are doing low carb and at the same time they are still eating oatmeal for breakfast.  Oatmeal is NOT really a low carb food.  Most fruit is not low carb for that matter.  Bread, rice, potatoes, corn, and sugar are all not low carb foods. Now, there is no […]

Low carb weight loss & goal setting

Tuesday, December 7th, 2010

Setting goals is something I do to help me continue to lose weight.  And I set my goals based on time and desired results. For example, if you were to just start a low carb diet with the idea that you will never ever eat carbs in your entire life ever again – that’s just […]

5 really bad reasons why low carb doesn’t work? Huh?

Tuesday, December 7th, 2010

I saw this article on Yahoo Health the other day with a title of “5 reasons why low carb doesn’t work”.  And they even generalized the whole thing and said why ALL of the different low carb approaches don’t work. Now that’s hilarious to me.  It’s one of those things that you see that you […]

Oil & Fat on low carb

Friday, December 3rd, 2010

So the good news…no carbs in oil or fat.  And fat is NOT a four letter word.  It’s an essential ingredient for humans. Eating fat on a low carb diet is considered mandatory.  However, you probably want to keep an eye on the types of fat you consume.  Not that you have to be paranoid […]
