Here are seven tips on how to live on a low-carb diet, which will also help you to lose weight and get fit.
HEALTHY TIPS FOR LOW-CARB LIVING:
1. Avoid Starches and Sugars
The other name for sugars and starches is carbs, and they can be measured in grams. You should eat no more than 20g of carbs per day, and you should avoid sugar, flour, pasta, bread, and everything with high amount of carbs.
Always read the labels before you buy a product!
2. Eat Foods Without Carbs
When you feel hungry you can eat meat, fish, and eggs as much as you want! You will not feel hungry and you won’t have to worry about gaining weight.
3. Eating Fat Helps You Lose Fat
Oils and butter don’t contain carbs. You can eat as much as you want until you feel full.
4. Have Greens Daily
Each day you should eat a cup of vegetables that don’t contain starches, such as broccoli, artichokes, green beans, mushrooms, peppers, Brussels sprouts, asparagus, cauliflower, leeks, eggplants, tomatoes, shallots, onions, zucchini, rhubarb, pumpkins, etc.
5. Drink Liquids
Besides drinking plenty of water, you should consume bouillon so you will not feel weak and have headaches. You can also consume coffee, tea, or diet soda.
6. Being Active Reduces Stress
Being under stress can affect your wellbeing in a negative way. It can also stop your weight loss process. When you manage the stress or you try to avoid it, you will not have cravings (particularly sugar cravings).
When you stay active you actually strengthen your bones, lower the stress, prevent cravings, and form stronger muscles.
7. Eat When Hungry, Stop When Full
Don’t eat just because it’s time for lunch. Eat only if you feel hungry. If you have a larger plate in front of you, you don’t have to eat everything. You should stop when you feel full.
Note: Always consult your doctor before you start any diet or a workout plan.
A Word about Vegetables:
You should always remember that vegetables are very important for our health, but some of them can contain carbs and can stop the process of ketosis and weight loss.
Stay within the range of 20g of carbs per day and measure your weight regularly. If you notice that you aren’t losing weight, you should lower the amount of veggies you are consuming.
