Quick info for following a plan!

Eating low carb is not hard.  it is just different.  Learn it and after a few days, you get used to it.

Get your mate, friend or family member to do it with you.  Maybe you can engage them in a healthy competition and then you support each other too.  Whatever works.  But, if you are around people who want to stay with their old habits, they might sabotage you because they are feeling bad about themselves.  Don’t eat with them.  Don’t listen to them.

Sometimes, you want to be able to quickly look up the carb content of food items.  Here is one site that I found that has many items at your fingertips.

RULES:

Remember:  50 to 100 g of carbs a day and you can lose weight.  6 small proteins a day about every 3-4 hours and don’t skip meals.

Four small servings of vegetables ( try to stay away from starches), 2 small servings of fruits a day (can do a slice of toast instead of one of the fruits twice a week).

Drink a lot of fluids.

(a dessert can be a protein, sugar free chocolate pudding, a protein bar, some of the chocolate protein items on Lindora.com or some you can make if you buy the low carb baking products on line, Greek yogurt, sugar free ice cream or frozen greek yogurt pops or Carbolite–Etc.)

Use coffee creamer in your coffee instead of milk, use sugar substitute.  Avoid alcohol if you want to metabolize your fat well and avoid extra carbs.

Stay positive and weigh daily to keep an eye on what is happening.  You might need to cut back on some carbs if the scale is stuck.
