Many people wonder why they’re getting fatter as they’re on a diet, because they don’t even eat that
much. And what they drink is no more than a few bottles of sugar-filled, empty-calories packed drinks.
So why are they not losing weight? It’s not just about how much you eat, but what you eat, as well.
Carbs are especially bad because they give you energy, but they are also delicious and make you eat a
lot more of them than you have to. Hence you end up overeating in many cases. If you don’t, you make
up for it with drinks. Either way, you get a lot of sugar into your system.
Energy is a good – you need it for proper function. But too much energy is bad, because you can’t spend
it and it gets stored as fat. The fat is then much harder to deal with. Even if you don’t seem to eat that
much, if your diet is rich on carbs, you might be getting too much sugar into your system, plunging it into
a rollercoaster of highs and lows both in terms of sugar and insulin.
At the end of the day, one of the surest ways to lose weight without doing anything else is to cut carbs
out of your diet. Sure, it’s going to be tough, but if you do it, you get results. You can stick with some
minimal amounts of complex carbs, such as rice (preferably brown), sweet potatoes (which is not
potatoes with sugar), oats, and more.
Add a little cardio into the mix, and with a little discipline you will be able to lose the weight you want.
You can even use some supplementation, but remember – it’s supposed to supplement your diet, not
replace it entirely.
