That's called the common sense diet.

How low are you keeping your carbs, and what kind of workout are you doing?

I know that, but I didn't start any kind of special diet or anything.

Just cut out most the bad and more good, get to the gym and sweat a little.

M-F Banana and granola for breakfast.

Lunch: Large chicken salad, no croutons with fat free ranch.

Afternoon snack: Nuts and maybe a fruit.

Dinner: Subway or boneless skinless chicken with rice and a veggie.

Your carbs are still way too high then. You should keep it under 30g a day.

If you want to go on a true low carb diet, you'll be eating mainly meats, eggs, cheese and non-starchy vegetables. Carbs should be under 30g a day for 10-12 days, then you can increase them a little bit to around 40-50g during the week with pretty much anything you want on the weekends.

If you're interested, PM your email address and I'll send you the same PDF file that I gave Buff. It's a long read but will tell you just about everything you need to know about a low carb diet.

Sweet potatoes are a good substitute.

So is cauliflower for white potatoes.

You can make a great cauliflower tortilla with a little egg and cheese to hold it together.

If you're interested, I can send you a PDF file explaining the diet. It gives a very in depth look on this carb = brain food myth and how your brain will have plenty of "food" on a low carb diet.


Please do. Information is power.

I don't have an immediate source on hand - I mean we both have Google. There's a hundred sources you can find that will tell you that carbohydrates are brain food - that the glucose that is broken down from carbs is the energy that fuels your brain. Carbs also contain serotonin which help regulate any number of things - which is why people on low carb diets are moody and have a hard time sleeping. That carbs are brainfood has been the prevailing science for years now (at least as I've always known it).

Ever since the low carb diet craze, there have been people trying to prove that this isn't the case. I'm skeptical of these claims, but I'm willing to give them a look. In many cases, they'll point to pre-agriculture man, who lived on a diet of mostly protein. Which is a fine thing to point out, except that the inverse observation is that man advanced like it was on rocket fuel once we made the advancement to agriculture (and an agriculture based diet high in carbohydrates).

For the novice who just wants to lose weight, this is the best weight loss product I've ever had. It's worked 100% of the time for me. The only time it doesn't work is when I'm not using it:

Biometric Diet Manager

It works with no diet program - it works in conjunction of your diet program. It just simply works.

And it's free.

This hasn't been true for me at all. And I'm taking HOT-ROX 3x a day, which gets me jacked as hell most of the time.

The problem with cutting calories and doing cardio is that you lose just as much (if not more) lean muscle in the process.

It's not that simple. When you're on that type of diet (low fat/cutting calories) the body burns your carbs for energy. Once those energy stores are gone, your body goes muscle protein, breaking it down to form glucose for fuel and preserving fat. That's catabolism and it's bad.

All that extra protein you take in is only going to preserve or replace the muscle you lost in the workout rather than increasing muscle size. The metabolic diet I'm on teaches your body to naturally burn fat like glucose and the protein you're taking in can be used to increase muscle size and strength.

Post the picture of what she looks like 90 days later when she hasn't changed her eating habits and is no longer drinking shakes for every meal.
