Carbs are a scary word when you’re trying to lose weight.
Either you’re afraid of them – which gives them undue power over your mind and body. Or you are scared to live without them – which means you may have an addiction to carbs or sugar.
Well it’s funny. In recent years I’ve become obsessed with finding easy food ‘tricks’ to allow me to enjoy the foods I love without suffering the effect on my thighs later.
I’ve overcome my fear of carbs, and especially my fear of fats.
Here are 3 of the tricks I swear by to keep my body tight, lean, and fit all year round…
1. Don’t Eat Carbs By Themselves…
I don’t down a bag of pretzels when I’m too busy to grab lunch.
Nor do I opt for a ‘low-fat’ poppyseed muffin at Starbucks to avoid the fatty plate of cheeses and meats in the case.
I’d go for the meat and cheese plate because it won’t spike my insulin levels… and I stay fuller, longer!
Plus, low-fat foods are often full of sugar, carbs, and nasty chemicals.
So the cheese and meat plate may be a better option than the poppyseed muffin. It will have similar calorie count, but less carbs, less sugar, and less insulin-spike!
Plain bagel? Just because you cut the cream cheese doesn’t make it okay! Try having half the bagel and some high-protein or vegetable alongside your meal.
Many fruits and vegetables are high in fiber which makes you feel more full after eating them. Instead of toast and bagels, try just having eggs and greens or eggs with lentils or quinoa.
For weight loss, you will often find that high-FAT foods are much better for you than low-fat, high carb foods! When you eat high-carb foods by themselves, they spike your insulin levels and turn into sugar in your body.
Foods with MORE fat help you feel fuller longer. In fact, many people who have a high-fat diet experience hours – even up to 36 hours at a stretch, feeling satiated with no hunger pains! You should ask your doctor before doing any fasting, of course.
Some of my favorite high-fat foods for weight loss include:
- Hemp Seeds
- Chia Seeds
- Fresh (not farm-raised) Salmon
- Raw Walnuts or Almonds
But above all, the #1 reason high-fat foods are good for your weight loss goal is that they don’t spike your blood sugar!
2. Mix Protein In With Carbs…
To lose weight, it’s important that you pair your carbs with protein. Ditch half your plate of pasta and focus on seeds, nuts, fish, chicken or beef with your meal.
When you have variety in your meals, you actually slow down the rate at which sugar is released into your blood. Plus, protein causes you to release the hormone glucagon. Glucagon fights fat AND the insulin rush you’d normally get eating carbs by themselves.
Replacing carbohydrates with meat, eggs, nuts, seeds, and greens is the way to go. And don’t worry if you aren’t a meat-eater. Did you know that vegetables have more protein per gram than animal meat! To pack in the most vegetables, try blending them in your blender or juicing them.
You can add chia seeds to your coffee, replace toast with Canadian Bacon, or even replace croutons with raw nuts on a salad!
3. Drink Slimming Tea BEFORE You Eat Breakfast, Lunch, or Dinner
Unless you’re on a temporary crash diet, carbs WILL be a part of your daily life.
Perhaps it’s a bit of pasta or a sandwich with bread. Or maybe it’s an apple or other piece of fruit. Carbs in moderation can still be used to lose weight.
But you must avoid consuming more calories than you need to; the mindless munching mode; or carb cravings. Your body isn’t satiated so you keep consuming more and more calories without ever feeling full.
Carbs are so dangerous to your healthy diet plan! (Pretzels are my weakness. Also popcorn, cous-cous, chicken noodle soup… aiy-yai-yai!) You get the point.
However, drinking Slimming Tea BEFORE a meal can help blast away carb cravings so that you will feel satiated and not consume the extra 1, 2, or even 300 calories in mindless carb munching per meal.
Plus, Slimming Tea helps to:
- Lower your blood sugar
- *Decrease fat storage
- *Increase insulin sensitivity
- *Oxidize MORE fat…
What’s more – did you know that often when you find yourself having a carb-craving for pretzels, chips, popcorn, or delicious pasta fazole leftovers in your fridge, you may actually be just THIRSTY?
Next time you feel like you’re going to have a snack attack… or eat more than you should, try Slimming Tea.
It’ll kill the carb cravings, hydrate your body, and even help you oxidize fat from your thighs, arms, and belly!
