Have a No Carb Day to Break Through Your Weight Loss Plateau

Last time we talked about the advantages of green smoothies. There are SO many combinations. As I was typing this, I was slurping my favorite mixture, a spinach and apple smoothie. You should totally try it!

It’s a delicious and healthy way to start the day.

So, have you found these suggestions useful? I hope so.

Remember, never EVER lose your motivation in losing weight. There’s no plateau that can’t be overcome.

Also, remember that you can’t do wonders in 7 days. Sooner or later you’ll notice the effects of these diet and lifestyle changes.

Keep it up, I believe in you.

So let’s jump right to today’s plateau buster…

Plateau Buster #7

Add A No Carb Day Once A Week

You heard me right. I’m not kidding.

Implementing a no carb day in your week can work wonders. “But why?” you might ask. Well, basically when you decide to go with a low or no carb diet (no matter how long you’ve been doing it, even one day per week can work well), you’re basically tricking your body into burning fat for fuel, instead of sugar from the carbs that it would normally get. Do you see?

So a no carb day not only promotes fat-torching, but it also keeps your body more receptive to insulin, which means you’re improving your body’s muscle building processes.

A study in which 63 individuals were randomized to either a low-fat or a low-carb diet group shows that the low-carb group indeed lost more weight (by 7.3% more of total body weight) than the low-fat group (1).

However, you shouldn’t expect wonders in three days. Your body has to adapt to these new habits, which can range from 3 to even 12 months.

Well, that is all for today. Stay with me for the next AWESOME plateau buster.
