Healthy Low Carb Diet | Rethinking Calorie Intake | Avoiding Long Term Ketosis
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.
Long term ketosis however, staying under 75 to 25 grams of carbohydrate per day, is unnecessary and unhealthy. What we’re after here is taking the best elements of Atkins and leaving behind the worst.
We get all the fat loss benefits while still having energy, not being miserable, and still being able to exercise if we desire. It is truly the best of both worlds, it’s healthy low carb at it’s finest.
Healthy Low Carb Diet | Scientific Hormonal Exploitation
Although the general public is always slow to catch on, fitness models, actresses, and even body builders have known all about using the power of hormones to shed body fat ultra quickly.
It works no matter who you are, because we all have these hormones and we’re all influenced by them at each and every meal we eat every day.
Imagine having the power to drop pounds of fat at will any time you want. You can have that power. Even if you get off track for a week or two, you can just take these principles and slim down any time you want.
That’s true power. There is no better feeling that being slim, healthy, and dare I say it, attractive. Life’s just better, we feel on top of the world, like being in love or eating chocolate.
I don’t care it’s around the holiday season or in the middle of the blistering summer, looking our best is the tastiest treat around.
Once you realize that all it takes is a proper plan of carbohydrate and calorie cycling, you’ll never look back. You can truly have your cake and eat it the while flushing away pound after pound of fat.
