Healthy Low Carb Diet | Rethinking Calorie Intake | Avoiding Long Term Ketosis

Calorie Intake

A healthy low carb diet will take into account calories as well as carbs. It’s an immutable law of physics that if we take in more calories than we burn we will not lose weight. I don’t care if we’re eating salmon and olive oil all day.

We must know roughly how many calories we’re taking in and we must lower that amount just slightly (200 – 400k) in order to burn off body fat. More important we’re going to cycle our calories up and down in a zig zag manner.

What this does is trick the body into burning much more fat than if we kept our calories constant day after day. We’re using our own hormonal environment – the most effective fat burning technique available to us.

Long Term Ketosis

 “Ketosis is a state in which our bodies have switched from burning carbohydrate to burning fat for energy.”

We need to use this state intermittently, in fact we should go “in” and “out” of this state depending on what day of the week it is. This also uses our fat burning hormones to their fullest potentials.

Getting the diet sorted out is not difficult to do. It is just a matter of listing a diet that is suitable to the parrot. Parrots of similar size eat similar diets, so the main consideration you need to make initially is the actual size of the parrot you have or that you intend to purchase.

For example, you most certainly would not expect an African Gray Parrot to eat the same diet as a budgerigar. Their size difference is huge and this will obviously affect the size of the food they eat. The beak alone on a larger bird is so much stronger, allowing it to eat harder foods.

Parrot diet variety.

A parrot loves to have variety in their diet. In the natural environment a parrot eats flowers, seeds, vegetables, fruit and nuts, so the range of food that you can give your parrot is huge.
