I'm not planning on having fruit. However I just made this with a sprinkle of crushed frozen raspberries...
Hi sorry to crash I'm not currently doing lo carb and as I'm vegetarian not entirely sure how I'd it anyway but putting that to one side I was hoping someone could answer my question. I have known a few people years ago who have done lo carb and had fantastic results but once they resume eating normally the weight goes back on.
That was a long time ago when lo card first became popular and tbh I haven't known anyone do it for a few years. How do you approach the diet? Is it just a kick start to dramatic weight loss and then you stay at your goal weight through just eating less generally?
I am genuinely interested as it would take a lot for me to do lo carb as I don't eat red meat at all and I'm not sure how you do it long term anyway?
I have maintained in the past by increasing carbs but through veggies and fruit. Avoiding most processed carbs.
Im not over the top with just eating eggs tho, i make my meals interesting and have left overs the next day, so i dont feel like ill be going from one extreme to anything else. This is just how im actually meant to eat after the surgery ive had.
I agree. I'm not planning on returning to what my diet was before I started. For me it's a kick start to recalibrate bad habits. My plan is to stick to the below 20g for 2 weeks and then gradually reintroduce some fruit and veg and stick to it as my "normal" eating. I can see how rehitting sugar and carbs is a slippery slope, it's easy when you don't eat them at all.
My short term plan is to be very strict on carbs and lose 2 or 3 kilos, then ease up a little bit and increase the carbs and try and maintain my weight loss.
1 tomato has about 5 grams of carbs.
If you want to know how many grams of carbs any food contains, google is your friend.
Vegetables that are high in carbs and best avoided are:
It is influenced by many factors, such as how heavy you are, as to how many carbs you can consume in a day and still lose weight.
I guess that's right. the people I know who did it just returned to the same eating habits as before so naturally the weight went back on.
