If you just want the high carb diet I followed, so can get on with it, you can find it here.
If you want to hear a bit my ramblings, continue on.
It’s funny how looking back on 60 days, it feels like it went by so quickly, but looking forward 60 days seems like forever.
Especially, when you are talking calorie restriction and a new workout plan.
Looking back, I don’t feel like I had to kill myself in the gym and I certainly didn’t feel like I was starving.
Being able to eat potatoes, bread, as much vegetables as I wanted and more has given me so much energy.
I now realize that above anything else, energy is what I really want.
Yes, I want to be proud of the body I’ve created. I want feel good in my clothes, but if I’m I have no energy to enjoy my life, it’s just not worth it.
I’ve tried low carb and keto so many times, and I have decided that it’s just not realistic for me to do as a “lifestyle diet”.
Or even a weight loss diet.
Any time I would “cheat” with a few drinks or a high carb meal, the scale would jump so much, which was discouraging and I would have to go through feeling sluggish again until I got back into ketosis.
There had to be a better way, then feeling sluggish all the time while trying to lose some weight.
I still, 100% believe there are benefits to going into ketosis every now and then, but I truly don’t think we are meant to live there.
Carbs are the bodies preferred source of energy.
Resistant starch like potatoes are starting to show huge health benefits for the gut.
So why is everyone saying carbs are bad?
Rusty Moore can explain it so much better than I can.
So, if you want to click over to him, his site is where I first learned that carbs where not what was making me gain fat.
But, in a nut shell, it’s fat mixed with carbs that cause our body to store fat.
If you eat carbs in absence of fat, vary rarely will the carbs get stored as fat.
Excess carbs get stored in your muscles as glycogen. The only time your body attempts to convert carbs into fat is when your muscles are 100% full of glycogen.Your muscles rarely reach this point.Rusty Moore ~ High Carb Fat Loss
Fat is actually easily stored as fat because our body doesn’t have to change it to store it.
It’s what we used to think way back when.
Remember? Everything in the grocery store was low fat everything.
And, then someone said that we were wrong.
Fat wasn’t the problem, it was carbs.
But, the real problem is eating them together.
The thing is, I thought, I had done the low fat diet before without much success.
But after reading Rusty’s Book High Carb Fat Loss.
I learned that I was doing wrong.
My idea of what low fat was, or better yet the food industries idea of what low fat is, is very wrong.
If you’re ready for amazing energy and results, and not worrying about eating to many vegetables or having a piece of fruit will throw you out of ketosis, you need to read High Carb Fat Loss.
Rusty is so awesome and down to earth, I’m sure you will love him as much as I do.
