Eat Your Carbs and Still Lose Weight

I know that's all you hear about these days is you have to skip the carbs to lose weight. It is no wonder everyone gets confused. Now they are saying eat the good carbs and your body will go into the fat burning mode. Bad carbs should still be avoided, they are white bread, white rice, white potatoes, pasta, and sugar. Good carbs are fruits and vegetables, whole grains, beans, and nuts. It is actually easy to work good carbs into your daily meal plans. All you need to do is have at least one piece of fruit or one serving of vegetables for every meal. If you are eating the recommended five or six smaller meals a day, you have just added five or six fruits and vegetables a day.

Here are some tips to lose 5 to 10 pounds in 2 weeks:

1. Get all of your carbs from fruits and vegetables. That means no grains for 2 weeks.
2. Drink nothing but water. You should consume half your body weight in ounces. Example; If you weigh 200 pounds you need 100 ounces of water a day.
3. Do not consume any dairy products for 2 weeks. That includes yogurt, cheese, and milk

If you follow these simple tips for 2 weeks, you should weigh 5 to 10 pounds less. So you can eat your carbs and still lose weight. You just need to be choosy about which ones you eat. The amount of protein you eat should be increased also. You need to include protein in every meal. I wish you all the success at meeting your weight loss goals.
