7 Day Meal Plan for a Low Carb Diet

By:

2 Comments

Egg White ScrambleThe low-carbohydrate (or low-carb) diet phenomenon began in the 1970s when Dr. Robert Atkins showcased the benefits of a low-carb lifestyle. The Atkins Diet, as well as other low-carb lifestyle plans like The Zone, South Beach Diet, and Carb Addicts, have remained very popular among dieters. The reason for this is simple: cutting carbs is the easiest and most effective way to lose weight.

This post is very informative. Thank you. However, I do find that this article misses out on some really simple tweaks that will easily accelerate weight loss without lifting a finger. I'd like to make a small input (if I may). It's a great idea to add some spices to your diet and juices. Spices are known to rev up your metabolism..so you can burn more calories. More importantly, they also help you in detoxifying your system. It helps you in mobilizing the unhealthy toxins around your colon, which (as per research) could be holding as much as 30 pounds in some cases! === http//dropmysize.com/ 5 must-stock ancient spices for weight loss 1. Mustard Seed Boosts metabolism even after up to 25 hrs of consumption. 2. Black Pepper Helps in faster digestion and nutrient absorption. 3. Ginger Hinders cholesterol absorption. 4. Cinnamon Helps in better processing of carbs. 5. Cayenne Pepper Burns fat. While you are researching on this, it's worthwhile to check out the done for you 7days low calories meal plan on === http//dropmysize.com/ Feel welcomed on the site.. -) Sonja Hadfield.
