Downtown Joe and I need a little jumpstart - me for to get into a dress on MAY 12 to host an event and Joe because he hasn't been eating properly. Our amazing trainer, Priscilla Bell, offered up this option.
Priscilla is THE BEST. She has years of nutrition and sports fitness training. She knows everything. In a decade of knowing her, Priscilla kept me fit - long before and through my pregnancy. That's the truth. Check her out at www.bellcurvebootcamp.com
you must cut out the following: bread, pasta, potatoes, most fruit, all sugar,
crackers, some dairy products (check the label for carb count) and, of course,
any snack food product like potato chips.
Impact carbs are also important.
Impact carbs is the carb count minus the fiber count, so a high fiber
fruit could in theory be eaten, so can Fiber One (the fiber count actually
cancels out the carb count) but I want my clients to stay away from all wheat
products. Men can relax around the
no-wheat rule because it doesn't seem to have the same impact it does on women.
I think wheat products are terrible for women.
In my experience any wheat product can cause women to stall their weight
loss program and can even cause them to gain back lost pounds. You can try including them but if you aren't
losing weight then your going to have to go without them. Fruit is also something you have to be
careful eating and again, men don't seem to have as much trouble including it
and still maintaining a weight loss.
from the following list of foods:
fish and eggs
and dressings to taste
is not long but there are many ways to prepare meat and vegetables just be
careful of the carb count in sauces.
Most sauces are fat based so they aren’t a problem.
Here is a
sample day, carb count follows the serving:
ham or turkey or roast beef, 0
salad with ham (3), cheese (3), chopped eggs (0) and blue cheese dressing (0)
ounces cheese, 2-3
almonds, roasted and salted, 9
chicken (as much as you want) 0
of wine (5 ounces) 8
- other alcohol (besides beer) has 0 grams of
grams of carbs = 37
to be successful you cannot worry about your fat intake. Fat will not make you fat, excessive
carbohydrates will. The other myth is
that low carb diets really only work because the calories are low. Not true. The above sample diet = approx. 2,800
