One of the most efficient ways to lose weight is not by counting your calories, but by counting carbs. The benefit of a low carbohydrate is faster weight loss because you are not consuming sugar or refined carbohydrates – food like flour, cookies, rice, and potatoes. If you are going to start on a low carb diet, the best advice I could give you is to throw out anything “white” in your cupboards and fridge. After you have done this, throw out all your processed junk food and any trans fats you may have hanging around.
There are many low carb diets for your to chose from. Your best bet is to read some diet reviews online or here at Another Lose Weight site. Let me first tell you about the best low carb diets out there on the market.
For those trying to lose weight when you have gained weight during menopause, a low carb or one of the hormone diets is the best way to go. Gaining weight when you approach menopause is unfortunately easy because your body metabolism slows down and your body turns sugar to fat. There are various hormone diets such as the Hormone Diet by Dr. Turner, the Dr. Oz diet and Suzanne Somers “Somersizing” diet – all good to follow if you are trying to lose menopause weight.
The South Beach Diet is an excellent diet to try. I managed to do it for the first two weeks because I followed it strictly. Towards the end of the second week, I was starting to feel extremely weak because of the lack of carbs and sugar, but I actually managed to lose 13 pounds. I could see the weight peel off my waistline which was very encouraging. What I liked about this diet was the fact that it was very easy to follow and easy to eat out with. The diet consists of eating three meals a day, each meal consisting of a protein with at least a cup of vegetables. The diet lists the lean meats, fish, low fat cheese and poultry you can eat and the permitted vegetables. You are allowed two snacks per day. Easy to follow, this diet is especially easy to follow when eating out. Just order a protein portion and a salad. For the first two weeks, there is no rice or other carb allowed. The diet works.
So when you are looking to lose weight, try a low carb diet. You can eat more on these diets, they are more satisfying and the results are more successful in that they are quicker.
