The Carb Lovers Diet: Eat What You Love, Get Slim for Life!
is a book written by Ellen Kunes.
If the thought of giving up pasta and bread makes dieting seem impossible, the CarbLovers Diet may be what you have been looking for. With the Carb Lover's Diet, you are encouraged to eat more carbs, just be sure they are the right ones.
What Is The Carb Lovers Diet?
The Carb Lover's Diet | CarbLovers Diet allows you to eat certain carbohydrates. By including these carbs in your diet, dieting is easier, especially if you love carbs.
How Does It Work?
By eating 'carb stars', foods that are high in resistant starch, the diet claims that you can lose 8 pounds in 30 days. You will find resistant starch in foods like brown rice, lentils, and garbanzo beans. This kind of starch resists digestion in the small intestine, so it passes through your body without breaking down into glucose. These resistant starches help you to feel full. Ellen Kunes, the author, also says that these starches promote fat burning and help keep blood sugar level stable.
On the CarbLovers Diet you will eat two to three times more resistant starch than most people eat. The first week, you are limited to 1200 calories per day, then you go to 1600 calories.
You can eat pretty much what you want on this diet, but in moderation. Refined starches, however, such as white bread, white rice, and cereals that are low in fiber are discouraged.
The idea is to fill 25% of your plate with a resistant starch and the rest of your plate with low fat dairy, lean meats, fruits, vegetables, and good fats.
The Carb Lover's Diet also includes exercise. Strengthening exercises are included for you to do twice a week and cardio workouts for the other days.
Does It work?
It should. Limiting caloric intake and exercise should equal weight loss and a 1200 calorie intake the first week should get you off to a good start.
After the first week, the diet is fairly easy.
No foods are banned.
Recipes are plentiful.
Food costs should not change.
You are on your own.
You will need to plan and prepare meals.
There are no studies or test to confirm that this diet works.
Diabetics should talk to their medial professional before deciding on this diet.
If you are not used to high fiber carbs, go slow, you may feel bloated or gassy, at first.
Dining out may prove to be difficult.
If you love carbs and since you have no food limitations, this diet may be an excellent choice.
The caloric intake restrictions alone should help you to lose weight. The fact that you can 'cheat' (within reason) is always a plus. The CarbLovers Diet allows you to make the lifestyle changes that are needed for your short term and long term success. I give the CarbLovers Diet two thumbs up.
Should you choose this diet, you will be on your own, so allow me to suggest that you join a weight loss social site and/or forum. My list of 22 weight loss communities may help. My CarbLovers Heavenly Tips will also open your eyes to 15 carb food choices that you CAN eat and thought you could not.
Thank you for reading, my friends. I wish you much success on your weight loss journey.
