To me, a diet involves temporarily changing the way you eat to achieve a specific goal weight. Typically (at least for me), I begin dieting and everything is grand for about two weeks and then the cravings start. Since I love salt so much I start dreaming about things like chips, cheese and french fries until I breakdown and order a Big Mac and large fries. After eating it in record time, I feel so guilty that I try to barely eat for the next few days to compensate. As you can see, diets never work for me.
So, when I encountered the Carblovers Diet, I was extremely skeptical. I mean really? A diet where you can eat carbs, cheese, potato chips and fruit to your hearts content and still lose weight? This question went around and around my mind until the weight started to come off.
I'm so happy to say that I'm down 4 pounds and feel absolutely fantastic. The weight is still coming off, my skin looks radiant and my stomach is becoming more toned. Imagine, these results from a plan called the Carblovers Diet.
I ordered the original Carblovers Diet book as well as the Carblovers Recipe Book to give myself some additional variety. The recipes are filling, delicious, hearty and you still get to eat potato chips and desserts. The plan focuses on Resistant Starches (good for you) which make you full longer and are more work to digest which means your body works harder to break them down. This means you burn more calories when eating something that is packed full of resistant starch. Check out some of the recipes...
|Pasta Primavera - One of my favorite recipes|
|Pan Seared Salmon with Parmesan Potatoes|
|Even desserts! Chocolate-Dipped Banana Bites|
Have any of you ladies tried this plan before? What are your thoughts?
