Go Slow Carb
Remember when I talked about adding a no carb day once a week?
Well, this one’s related to carbs too, but from a different approach. It’s called the Slow Carb diet.
I’m sharing this with you because, let’s face it, we all love our carbs. However, did you know that not all carbs are equal? In fact, they behave quite differently in our bodies. Slow carbohydrates are the ones that produce only small fluctuations in our blood glucose and insulin levels.
By digesting and entering in your body slowly they create a reduced need for insulin, therefore providing stable sugar levels so your body is able to burn released stored adipose tissue (fat) for energy.
According to a 2009 study, low glycemic index (GI) diets, like the slow carb diet, help in the prevention of obesity, diabetes, and cardiovascular disease (1).
Now you might ask “What in the heck is the glycemic index?” Let me explain…
The GI is a ranking of carbs on a scale from 0 to 100 according to the extent to which they raise blood sugar levels after eating. To make this simple, low GI foods, due to their slow digestion and absorption produce only gradual rises in blood sugar and insulin. In contrast, high GI foods are the ones which are digested rapidly.
I’m sure you know the situation that occurs after you eat your glazed donut for breakfast. You feel full and energized for a while, but after like an hour, you start to feel hungrier and hungrier.
This is the effect of high GI foods.
Let me show you some examples of healthy, low GI breakfasts.
- Bowl of High Fiber Cereal (preferably flavored with natural sugars like evaporated cane juice)
- Plain low-fat yogurt, fruit, and nuts or granola (preferably without sugar).
- One or two eggs (poached, boiled, however you like it, and add low-fat cheese and veggies if you like), 1 or 2 slices of 100% wheat flour or stone ground wheat flour bread.
These are some good examples of healthy breakfasts that fill you up so you won’t feel hungry all morning.
And because you’ll eat less, you’re one step closer to overcoming your plateau and getting that terrific body.
Let’s keep in touch.
