Low Carb Diet For Weight Loss

Low Carb Diet For Weight Loss. Is Your Best Way To Lose Weight Fast.

For most people, how many carbohydrates they eat will determine whether they are gaining, maintaining or losing weight. Limiting your carbohydrate intake is probably your best weight loss option.

Figuring out what your Carbohydrate Sweet Spot is for Weight Loss can be confusing. We all need to eat nutritious carbs like fruits and vegetables for good health. We want to cut back; however, on the empty calorie carbs like breads, pasta, rice and processed high carbohydrate foods such as soda, cake and cookies. In addition, we have to take into account how active we are. If you’re sitting behind a desk all day you should obviously be eating less carbohydrates then someone doing manual labor all day.

Carbohydrate Guide for Weight Loss:

Fifty (50) to one 100 grams per day is a good range for most people who are moderately active to lose weight. There are about 4 calories per gram of carbohydrates so that would put you in the 200 to 400-calorie range. If you are more active then the average person, then go with 100 grams. If you’re less active, try 50 grams. These 50 to 100 grams is a pretty safe range that will keep you losing weight steadily while keeping you out of ketosis.

One hundred and fifty (150) to 300 grams a day is entering the danger zone for most people. Once you start eating 800 to 1,200 calories a day in the form of carbohydrates you will most like be slowly and consistently gaining weight. Unfortunately this is the range I find most people fall into who are trying to lose weight but are failing. The only way you can go that high with your carbs is if you are very active and burning calories all day long.

I do believe that a low to moderate Carb diet is your best way to lose weight fast.

Potatoes on the paleo diet

Potatoes are a common subject of discussion when it comes to the paleo diet. Some people avoid them completely while others have them regularly. Points of view about potatoes on the paleo diet have changed over the years. The main complaint about them is that they are high in carbs while relatively low in nutrients as well as the fact that they belong to the nightshade family of plants which can be problematic for some people with leaky gut and autoimmune disease.

In this video I give my opinion about potatoes, explain who should have them and who should avoid them, talk about some ways to eat them in order to minimise their impact on insulin and tell you me personal experience.
