Welcome to the LOW CARB Diet and congratulations for making the first step on your low carb journey!
When you start this diet, the first two weeks are quite dramatic with your weight loss!
If not already...Pretty soon, you'll look younger, feel better and burn an amazing amount of stored body fat.
Many patients that have reached their weight loss goal or cannot come in for regular weight control start with a LOW CARB Induction limit of 20 net grams of carbs per day for the first two weeks.
Again, this simply means avoiding sugar and counting carbs while eating healthy fats, meat, cheese and eggs.
You'll also avoid foods known to cause problems during your transition – like alcohol, caffeine, nuts, seeds and fruit. All the fun stuff.
The LOW CARB diet is crazy-simple . everything is written out without hard science or complicated math equations. You can do this!
Starting this diet means limiting starches and sugars. You will eat a moderate amount of protein and of healthy fat sources.
· Reading Labels Like a Pro
When you begin this diet, you will be surprised to find out where sugar is hiding. Reading food labels like a pro means finding the hidden carbs and figuring out the number of carbs that come from sugar.
· Find the Hidden Sugar
Pay attention to the added sugars/starches in the ingredient list. You may see ingredients you are avoiding. It may be "Low Carb", but still has things like corn syrup.
You may notice food labels list "sugar" separately under the carbohydrate section. Food companies are only required to list certain types of sugar grams there. Don't trust the sugar gram numbers on the labels.
