If You Want To Lose 2 Dress Sizes A Month Try These 5 Carbs

Although the “low-carb” eating regimen had been previously disavowed and maligned by highly credible authorities in both the medical community and the food industry, there seems to be an ongoing trend that now favors a low-carb eating style–for life.

What many Atkins Diet proponents have long maintained, today, prestigious institutions such as the American Heart Association (AHA) have recently re-stated their stand on low-carb eating. Admitting that it deserves a second, more scientific evaluation as to its effectiveness and general beneficial rewards to those adhering to the diet, there is a wind of change occurring in many quarters.

That being said, the search is now on for those particular five carbohydrate foods that can even help safely lower one’s clothing size a full two sizes–within the space of one month. However, first a few surprising facts: eating too few carbs can be just as detrimental to losing weight as eating too many.

According to recent studies, higher cortisol levels often result from eating too few carbs. In contrast, eating the right low-starch carbs at the proper times and in moderate amounts, can bring the cortisol levels down. Consequently, faster weight loss occurs.

One clinical study recently reported that over a 30-day period, 42 dieters consumed 1/4 cup servings of cooked carbohydrates at breakfast, 1/2 cup serving cooked carbs at lunch and 1/3 cup cooked carbs with dinner. All carbs were combined with appropriate portions of protein and healthy fats such as extra virgin olive oil or extra virgin coconut oil. The amazing results were that cholesterol and triglyceride levels were lowered, sleep was restored and an average weight reduction of two dress sizes happened within the first month.

Another surprising fact is that according to one government agency, most carb eating should be done at dinner.

Please keep in mind that there are low-starch carbs and high-starch carbs, so choose wisely. In addition, you’ll find below the proper fats and proteins that should be focused on eating along with the carbs.

High-Starch Carbs–generally induce a slower rate of weight-loss.

  • Buckwheat, 1/4 cup cooked
  • Adzuki Beans, 1/4 cup cooked
  • Boiled Potatoes, 1/4 cup cooked
  • Kabocha Squash, 1/4 cup cooked
  • Brown Rice,1/4 cup cooked

Low-Starch Carbs–typically used to jump-start fast weight-loss. However, one can moderately indulge in this category.

  • Cucumbers,1/4 cup raw
  • Hass Avocado, 1/2 avocado
  • Romaine Lettuce, 1 cup
  • Green Beans, 1/2 cup
  • Black or Green Olives, 5

Proteins

  • Wild Salmon, 4-6 ounces
  • Shrimp, 4-6 ounces
  • Organic White Meat Poultry, 4-6 ounces
  • Vegetable-Based Protein Powder, 24-35 grams
  • Lean Grass-Fed Beef, 4-6 ounces

Fats

  • Hass Avocado, 1/2 avocado
  • Almonds, walnuts or pumpkin seeds, 1/2 ounce
  • Macadamia Oil, Extra Virgin Olive Oil or *Extra Virgin Coconut Oil, 1 tablespoon
  • Unsweetened Coconut Meat, 1/2 ounce

*Extra virgin coconut oil has shown a propensity to aid in speeding up the thyroid gland that in turns speeds up the body’s metabolism as an aid in weight reduction.

In effect, The late Dr. Atkins is finally getting a kind of Montezuma’s revenge against his most vocal past critics as more people are rediscovering the merits of a low-carb style of eating.
