Carblovers Diet: Losing pounds in a healthy but tasty way!

By Briana Booker

Some believe the average diet rountines for losing weight consist of low-carb diets. "The CarbLovers Diet" sets out to prove that carbohydrates are not the enemy but the foe of our dietary!

 Contrary to belief,eating the right types of carbohydrates is exactly what you should do when trying to drop pounds. Carbohydrates can help curb your cravings, preserve lean muscle tissue (which can keep your metabolism from dropping) and control your blood sugar levels (so your body stores fewer excess calories as unwanted body fat).

 The key is resisting large amounts of starches,which digest at different speeds. Resistant starches, found in the kind of foods recommended in this diet (including raw potatoes and firm raw bananas), pass through the body without being digested, similar to fiber. The average person eats roughly 4.8 grams of resistant starches daily. The CarbLovers Diet increases that amount to 10 to 15 grams through various carb-based recipes but combines this increase amount with healthy fitness to lose weight! Basically, you do not have to starve yourself to look good!

Here are the five ground rules of the Carblovers diet:

  1. Eat at least one resistant starch-rich food (they call these foods CarbStars) at every meal.
  2. CarbStars should make up about 25 percent of every meal (with the rest of your calories coming from lean meats, low-fat dairy products, healthy fats, fruits and vegetables).
  3. Be smart with your portion sizes.
  4. Never deprive yourself (meaning you can indulge but in moderation).
  5. Build a power pantry (which means stocking your home with plenty of CarbStar foods).

You start the program by following a strict seven-day CarbLovers kickstart plan, which allows only 1,200 calories a day divided among four small meals.

You can expect to lose about six pounds within the first week. Then you begin the second portion of the program, a 21-day Carb Immersion plan. This portion of the plan raises your daily calorie intake to 1,600 calories divided among five small meals.

 You'll be eating less than usual,but the attractiveness of the meals will encourage you to stick with the program.

It is a honest approach to weight loss. It reaffirms that eating the right types of nutrient-packed foods in moderation, as well as getting enough exercise, will burn calories, shed fat and help you achieve your weight-loss goals!

The diet is in fact healthy overall. It recommends natural, unprocessed foods that are rich in nutrients. Also, it promotes dieters to monitor what they are eating and watch their portion sizes.

 The diet combined with exercise can do wonders for you to be lean in muscle growth and burn additional calories, no matter if this diet consist of resistive starches. These types of starches actually give you an energy boost.

Here are a list of foods you can enjoy with this diet:
 Bananas, oatmeal, potatoes, beans, peas, fruit, broccoli, cucumbers, cold-water fish, pork tenderloin, Brie and apple slices, Greek yogurt, peanuts, steak, macaroni and cheese, penne pasta and Hershey's Kisses.

But remember, what you can not have (for the first seven days): Liquid calories. Beyond that, no single food is denied on this diet.
