What LoCarb is not:
Sugar. Junk. Grains - not alot.
Starchy veggies, starchy grains - not alot.
And corn is a grain!
What LoCarb is:
Healthy meats, eggs, cheeses
(if you are so inclined)
Lots of yummy veggies.
Lots of fresh salads.
Some people debate:
Programs like (current) Atkins
use too many fake foods.
Well, no one is arguing that!
Some people object:
Programs like Atkins are too high fat.
Atkins IS a ketogenic diet.
It is (self-proclaimed) HighFat Diet -
Not so much LoCarb (but it is that, too)
LOTS of people do well
On a (somewhat) lower fat version of LC.
Pratkins... Paleo + Atkins...
Or Primal... if you are so inclined!
Processed-to-death food is probably not good.
Industrial oils - are probably not good.
GMO foods are
probably not NEVER good.
Stuff you can't pronounce is probably not good.
Too much of a good thing - probably not good!
A Healthy Diet:
If a person has a damaged metabolism
From years of food abuse -
[bingeing, and junk, and dieting - oh my!]
Then maybe a ton of sugar-spiking fruit
Is not so much a welcome treat.
Like putting gasoline on a fire.
Atkins called it "maintenence"
It really is just making better food choices - for life!
Deciding to make better choices.
Both in what you eat,
And in what you chose not to eat.
So really - LoCarb (for me)
is just about making better choices
for food - all the way around!
