Another reminder that sugar, processed carbs are bad for you
on March 4, 2014
Its extreme to think that all carbs - including the good ones from fruits and vegetables could be bad for you. However, I did give this a try and lost 12 pounds in the first 2 weeks. I gained them back since it really isn't a sustainable lifestyle for me. Everything processed seems to have some sugar or carb in it. It's somewhat like Atkins, just a different name. I will give this another try once I have some meals planned out and prepare my cupboards appropriately. I think his other plan - the 100 might be easier to stick with. But I might have a day or two a week where I allow some extra healthy carbs - fruits/veg so I don't feel deprived for too long. What can that hurt?
I think the binding on this book is pretty flimsy. Not sure how to put the cover on and make it stay. Should have come with instructions for putting the cover on.
Cut out sugar (as much as you can), and find some go-to healthy alternatives to always have on hand. I love the chocolate cake in a cup recipe, but I had to adapt it since my son has a nut allergy. So, instead of the almond flour I use coconut flour, add an extra egg or two and increase the amount of milk until it is cake-batter consistency. Coconut flour is very dry so you need to compensate with extra liquid...
