Do I keep my new weight?
I can not tell you how many times I have now asked if I hold my weight is still new! The pages on my weight go down course in 2003/2004 and that's a while ago now.
Losing weight can all do - only to find a method that can be followed to the letter for a long time. Since it does not matter whether you choose Weight Watchers, Cambridge, modif, Nutrilett, Viktklubben.Se, low carb or GI. The large and difficult problem is the day you yourself must decide what to eat, to keep the new weight. Few methods teach this step but it is usually more like that you should eat "a bit of everything" or to just be "holding back" in everyday life, then 'treat themselves' when there is celebration. I need clearer rules than that! Otherwise, I am soon back in the "paste-swamp" and moreover, I am certainly sugar addiction.
I'ma member on various lists and forums, and sometimes becomes a bit depressing: hand over those who try to be underweight by using low-carb. A word to you: Sorry, but that just eating low carb does not help! Low carb is usually the ideal diet for us is (was!) Severely overweight, sugar addiction or just need to "feel better". But goals are to be so important so you should probably seek other methods. And low-carb is also no "air hostess-diet" that you hold for two weeks and then return to their "normal" diet. Low carb is changing for the rest of their lives. It's about to change their lifestyle!
Focus on low-carb is for me not to eat as much fat as possible: it is primarily about reducing the number of (bad) carbohydrates. As a consequence, you have to increase the fat intake to be measured and get enough energy. If you are not fully clear on this link, so chances are, that the day it reached its destination and want to start adding some more carbohydrates, suddenly sit there and eat butter-fried mushrooms in cream sauce for a hearty portion of pasta. Then it quickly regained its old pounds again. There are several different levels of how many carbohydrates that are just right and you can not just say that this level is best and suitable for all. You have to adapt yourself how much (and which) carbohydrates you feel that you are doing well and holding his weight. But the more you increase the number of carbohydrates - the more you have to be cautious with how much fat you eat. It is the carbohydrates (and quality) we must focus on first!
Since are not low-carb eating some kind of contest to see who can eat the fewest carbs per day or who manage to evict most of the fat in a shorter period. It's about the only end up in normal weight and then maintain the new weight. It is only and only through long-term thinking: That we decide that this diet is something I believe in and that we really adhere to the rules that apply. Trying to meet extremely strict rule leads to the 'tumble there, "because there is no room for variation and eventually becomes too great temptations. I insist that no one has been bold of broccoli or other "good" vegetables that grow above ground! It is one thing to live strictly for a short period when you lose weight (lose weight if you like), but one must always have the rest of your life for your eyes and realize that we are sugar depending never be able to return to the called "normal food". So it comes to finding a way of eating that can cope with - but to constantly "fall there" - for the rest of their lives.
Can say that I stopped counting every carb and calorie: There is nothing as you can get involved with in the long run. However, as I check sometimes I lie about, so I prefer not stick right away to the forest. As a rule, so know the body of the self becomes too much: either by "craving" coming back, indigestion or greatly that I will be puffed and bloated. It seems that the body's own regulatory system now "healed" and works as expected: I eat too many carbohydrates are the eggs & bacon, I yearn for and no more bread! And in fact the opposite: Too much fat and your body screams for broccoli - how strange it may sound.
For my part, I eat a fair amount of vegetables that grow above ground because I feel that the body functions best when: My body needs the "empty" calories, volume, chewing and fiber to get something to work with and keep burning up. I eat protein in what probably can be called normal portions and I'm not afraid of fat, but I do not pouring on to it without adding the fat, I feel I need to be measured.
I guess I have to add that I am not stick thin, I have never been really skinny and never will be - it suits just do not mix either with the self-image or personality that I have. I let the body determine its natural weight and it has landed on a weight which I also enjoy and feel comfortable in. BMI is a bit on the upper range of normal weight: On the other hand, it is recognized that we who eat low carb builds muscle and thus become heavier in proportion to the volume. Gazette am not blind to BMI - but look at how the body really looks like. Do not I look too pjåkig out for me to approach 50-year mark! :)
A little comment about the low carb and exercise is probably also appropriate. The list below is my everyday life that includes regular walks with the dogs every day, but the times when I train both hard and regularly as I increase in carbohydrates. Should KAG run a 55-minute spinning class in the evening, I ate little whole-grain rice for lunch or a wholemeal sandwich-type bread with Danish Danish liver pate on bread for afternoon coffee. II, otherwise I will be incredibly tough in the legs and is completely exhausted after just warming. Apparently, the body requires some extra input the times.
What do you mean "Danish" in the paragraph above? Well, for those who do not want to take note of low carb or low GI, I usually say that they should eat more Danish and German cuisine, for it often contains less carbohydrate than our Swedish counterparts. Compare carbohydrate content in the Swedish sausage with the Danish and German, for example. Compare carbohydrate content with Swedish Danish liver pate with the old fashioned variety. Are you the conference in Denmark to get a croissant with your coffee instead of a sugary bun. Rye bread is naturally coarse and unsweetened, compared with all the strange things that are now hidden in many of our Swedish breads. Smörrebröd is not such a crazy lunch. So think a bit more Danish in their food. But dropping the beer-drinking!
We have it again if you read many books by several authors. will Gurus, gurus yesterday - but low-carb is! Banting was the first who wrote a published book, Low Carb and his ideas are yet and could serve as a recommended book even today. It is ultimately about keeping blood sugar at a steady low level to prevent insulin secretion and thus fat. It does this by holding back on carbs and when you eat carbohydrates you choose them with low GI. Stranger than it is not. Then you call the method Banting, Atkins or another.
It is also important to find their own path and that you yourself realize what triggers the craving! You can not rely blindly on what others say in every situation - we are all different and our bodies react differently!
So the answer to the frequently asked question is: Yes, I hold the weight! Without that I even know that I attempted, is again something or need to resign. And hungry, I go very rarely.
Am I going the "wrong direction", so I reverse back and eat more stringent diet for a while (see schedule for Phase 1 ) and exercise a bit more to catch up.
The simple ground rules I am going to continue, they are exactly as I described above:
* Sky sugar as if it were poison.
* Do not eat that which is "white" (white flour, white pasta, white rice etc).
* Do not eat root vegetables (and other pure starch).
* Do not eat light products (ie low fat products).
* Eat only whole grains for breakfast - the rest of the day should be strictly low carb.
* Eat fruit in moderation.
* Eat dairy products in moderation.
* Eat plenty of vegetables (which grow above ground).
* Eat foods approved in the amount needed, that is until it is measured - but not stuffed!
* Exercise happy - but only based on your own terms.
The short version of the same thing is: Imagine a low GI, but hold back on carbohydrates!
