How I planned to survive a low carb diet?

The question before me, on an early day in February 2019, was pretty easy for me to understand. Did I really want to lose some weight? Yes! Fuck yes I did! Now, the real question that I needed to figure out

The goal, for moi, was pretty easy to visualize. I wanted to quickly drop from 200 romping stomping pounds, down to a more svelte 175! I wanted to take a few steps outside and not feel like I was passing out. I wanted to feel good... I wanted... Fuck it, I just wanted to fit inside my clothes again!

After reading a book or two, I finally began to understand the concept that carbs were very possibly at the foundation of my weight problem. Yes, carbohydrates, a form of food (breads, potatoes, pastries, etc) that once ingested, were quickly turned into glucose with any remaining junk headed for the fat assemble machinery down around my waist! In a younger body, most of that glucose is efficiently burned, while in my oldie and moldy body, not so much so. I'd merely hit a sugar high, followed by a crash that left me wanting even more junk and sugary food. And, let me tell you, being hungry all the time, doesn't end too well!

So, I began eating lots of meat, eggs and assorted veggies.  At right is a nutritional breakout of a lunch time repast consisting of chicken breast, mushrooms, broccoli and carrots - all steamed to perfection and tasting great!

So, that was lunch. For most breakfasts, I planned to have an egg on toast (OMG) along with a couple of strips of bacon which are carbohydrate free! And, after those two meals, I like to enjoy a bowl of cereal and milk for dinner. Sure there were some carbs in that, but in the end, I had stayed int the under 60 grams per day level that worked to help shed the pounds!

The real question was one of effectiveness. I began my low carbohydrate approach on the first of February and plan to post a followup on the 15th! Stay turned!

  1. Did you know that the vast majority of people in this day and age have excess abdominal fat? The first thing that most people think of is that their extra abdominal fat is simply ugly, is covering up their abs from being visible.

    However, what most people don't realize is that excess abdominal fat in particular, is not only ugly, but is also a dangerous risk factor to your health. Scientific research has clearly demonstrated that although it is unhealthy in general to have excess body fat throughout your body, it is also particularly dangerous to have excess abdominal fat.

    There are two types of fat that you have in your abdominal area. The first type that covers up your abs from being visible is called subcutaneous fat and lies directly beneath the skin and on top of the abdominal muscles.

    The second type of fat that you have in your abdominal area is called visceral fat, and that lies deeper in the abdomen beneath your muscle and surrounding your organs. Visceral fat also plays a role in giving certain men that "beer belly" appearance where their abdomen protrudes excessively but at the same time, also feels sort of hard if you push on it.

    Both subcutaneous fat and visceral fat in the abdominal area are serious health risk factors, but science has shown that having excessive visceral fat is even more dangerous than subcutaneous fat. Both of them greatly increase the risk your risk of developing heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, stroke, sleep apnea, various forms of cancer, and other degenerative diseases.

    Part of the reason visceral fat is particularly dangerous is that it apparently releases more inflammatory molecules into your body on a consistent basis.

    The first thing you must understand is that there is absolutely NO quick fix solution. There are no pills or supplements of any sort that will help you lose your abdominal fat faster. Also, none of the gimmicky ab rockers, rollers, or ab belts will help get rid of abdominal fat either.

    The ONLY solution to consistently lose your abdominal fat and keep it off for good is to combine a sound nutritious diet full of unprocessed natural foods with a properly designed strategic exercise program that stimulates the necessary hormonal and metabolic response within your body. Both your food intake as well as your training program are important if you are to get this right.

    Now the important thing to realize is that just any old exercise program will not necessarily do the trick. The majority of people that attempt getting into a good exercise routine are NOT working out effectively enough to really stimulate the loss of stubborn abdominal fat. I see this everyday at the gym.

    Most people will do your typical boring ineffective cardio routines, throw in a little outdated body-part style weight training, and pump away with some crunches and side bends, and think that they are doing something useful for reducing their abdominal fat. Then they become frustrated after weeks or months of no results and wonder where they went wrong.

    Well, the good news is that I've spent over a decade researching this topic, analyzing the science, and applying it "in the trenches" with myself as well as thousands of my clients from all over the world to see what works to really stimulate abdominal fat loss.

    If you follow the guidelines, you WILL lose your belly fat that has been plaguing you for years. It is a proven system that works time and time again for all of my clients on every corner of the globe that actually apply the information I teach. If you apply it, the results will come. It's really that simple.

    Don't waste another day allowing that nasty abdominal fat to kill your confidence as well as contribute to your risk for MAJOR diseases.
