Low Carbs, No Carbs Hmmmm thats the question.
Tuesday, February 01, 2011
I'm truly interested on how Carbs affect the body. I have been reading several books and research documentation about Carbs. Based on what I found is that Carbs is getting a bad rep not by it's own doing but by the users. I have decided to focus on my carb intake this first quarter of the year. The plain is to trick the body to use Carbs as fuel and not storage for fat. Here is my plain:
1. Low Carbs for 3 days. Ex: no breads, sugars, pastas, potatoes, processed foods, juices etc... Limited fruit intake to once a day. Focus on clean meats and green veggies.
2. 4th day add Carbs to each meal except dinner.
3. Meal frequency is 4-6 times a day with no Carbs on your last meal.
I will be posting my results. FYI: this is just a test to see how my body reacts to Carbs. I started this on 1/30/2011 @ 250lbs today is 2/2/2011 and weight 244lbs. My workout plain is the same as before with no changes. I toggle between Insanity, P90x, and weight lifting.
Wish me luck and perseverance!
