Low-Carb just two days a week

Wednesday, December 28, 2011

New study shows better results than daily calorie restriction by eating protein, vegetables, good fats and even a piece of fruit (limiting carbs to 50gr per day) for just two days a week and eating sensibly the other five days:

This sounds like something anyone could manage--I'm going to recommend this to my mother-in-law, who is 80. Similarly, the Dukan diet prescribes one Pure Protein day a week for the rest of one's life, as maintenance to prevent regaining the weight lost.

    This wouldn't work for me. It would just cause me to have cravings. I eat fruit but always keep my net carbs below 150 gms a day.

    Thanks for the link, Sunny. It sounds interesting. I am SO addicted to carbs that it might take me awhile to approach some sort of carb moderation before I could actually contemplating implementing this, but I might just try it when I'm ready.

    Thanks,

    Thanks, sweetie! I am not familiar yet with the Dukan Pure Protein thing but I am going to look it up as I am beginning to struggle with my maintenance.

    I saw something about this on Dr Oz a few weeks ago and I must say it peaked my interest. Thank you for the links!
