Low Carb Diet Plan is not just about
cutting out sugar and starchy food. It also means replacing
all those carbs you cut out with quality protein foods,
and quality fats as well. With properly planned low
plans , your body will burn mostly fat, and will
preserve the lean muscle. If you exercise, you will
add lean muscle while losing fat, which will increase
your metabolic rate, and increase the fat-burning effect.
Muscle tissue weighs more than fat, but takes up less
bulk, so you may find yourself getting smaller in size
without seeing a drastic drop on the scales. Low Carb
Diet Plan helps you in controlling your hunger and cravings.
And most low carbohydrate plans allow unlimited amounts
of allowed foods, so you eat when hungry, and as much
as you need to ease your hunger.
The most popular Low Carb Diet plans are: Dr.
Atkins diet , Protein Power ,
Carbohydrate Addicts and the Zone
Low Carb Diet Plan Basics for Healthy Weight
- Drink lots of water. Water affects fat loss. If
you're on a ketogenic diet (Atkins induction phase,
Protein Power phase one,
etc.), it's essential to flush out the ketones and
waste products from the fat you're losing. Eight glasses
a day is the minimum and is not enough for most overweight
- Add yogurt to your Daily Program. Cultured milk
products restore healthful bacteria to your body and
are usually well tolerated even by people who have
problems with dairy.
- Eat Sardines. Sardines are a quick, easy, inexpensive
source of first class protein and omega-3 fats. If
your particular low-carb program permits it, eat sardines
with some low-carb, low-sugar crackers like Wasa bread.
- If You Need Dessert, Ask for Cheese and Berries
or Berries and Cream.
- Eat regularly spaced meals and snacks, approximately
every 4 to 5 hours, to avoid feeling famished and
to keep energy levels high.
- Eliminate as much sugar as possible from your diet:
soda, sweetened beverages, fruit juice, cookies, cakes,
- Choose as many unprocessed foods as possible.
- Drink water between meals. If you must have flavored
water, make your own. (Even sugar-free flavored water
is high in artificial sweeteners, which will perpetuate
your sweet tooth.) Add lemon, lime or orange slices
to plain seltzer water for a refreshing taste without
- Eat Protein at Every Meal. Every single meal should
have protein in it. Ideally, so should every snack.
The body recognizes protein (and fat) as something
that you have a need for; therefore, the appetite-control
mechanisms that send messages from your gut to your
brain signaling that you've had enough food work well
with protein (something they do not do with carbohydrates).
- Eat Slowly and Savor Every Bite. Chewing your food
slowly and thoroughly, putting your fork down between
bites and actually enjoying what you're eating can
help you lose
- Eat Breakfast Every Day. When you skip breakfast,
among the many other negative things that happen is
that insulin release is greater at the next meal than
it would otherwise have been. Blood sugar is destabilized.
You're more likely to be subject to cravings.
