Archive for the ‘low carb snacks’ tag
Obesity is fast becoming a people killer. It brings along with it a horrendous number of physical complications and conditions, totally bad for a person. To feel better and, by the way, look better, maybe it’s time to pull out the big guns and step up to the low carb diet plan.
Making a food plan for three meals a day and two or three snacks will be the beginning. For a snack, consider one cookie with a glass of milk, or apple slices with peanut butter. Try grilled chicken with a half cup of steamed rice, or baked fish with steamed vegetables for the dinner meal.
In addition to combining these two nutrients for healthy weight loss, eat these foods every two to three hours throughout the day, keeping your metabolism steady by supplying the required nutrients in a steady stream, for optimum weight loss. When the body has an abundant supply of these two nutrients at all times, pounds seem to melt away.
By limiting carbohydrates, one naturally leans towards a list of protein foods. Whenever you eat about seven grams of protein, at the same time consume fifteen grams of carbs. In any two hour period, you can eat up to twice that amount for healthy weight loss.
The bottom line is when you eat a carb, eat a protein, in the proper ratio. If you consume protein, you may choose to eat that alone or combine with a carbohydrate. Carbs may not be eaten alone nor more than 30 grams in any two-hour period.
With any good diet, and even when not dieting, at least eight 8-ounce glasses of water are necessary for full and adequate body function. The body contains an average of over 60% water, so whether using the low carb diet or not, sipping all that water is still necessary. This is especially true when you need to flush kidneys of wastes produced by dieting.
