Why most ‘low carb dinners’ don’t deliver on their weight loss promises

What are low carb dinners? I am very familiar with them, as I eat these every single night. Through years and years of my own personal research into why I felt so terrible and couldn’t lose weight, I ‘finally’ discovered not only how to lose weight in the healthiest way possible, I also improved my health.

How I eat is ‘totally low carb‘. The secret is plant based whole food. It’s really easy. But, you can get tricked as soon as you open up a box, can, bottle or bag of anything. Processed and refined food tricks you. Manufacturers may claim something is healthy for you when it’s not. Simply because something says ‘organic’ on it doesn’t mean it’s the best thing to eat!

For example, say you buy an organic avocado. It does have a huge amount of fat in it. Fat can harm the endothelium layer of your arteries and veins. This is the inner lining. You will also wear the excess fat you eat the same as gain weight eating refined carbs.

My own nightly low carb dinners

  • Large salad with sunflower seeds or pumpkin seeds sprinkled on top or
  • Steamed broccoli and bok choy
  • Baked potato with green salsa
  • For desert and later I eat fruits like bananas and berries, sometimes oranges

My dinners are low carb and fill me up. For lunch I usually eat brown rice and pinto beans with salsa and also a large green salad. You might think how I eat is boring, but surprisingly, it is not. I personally, always look forward to my meals.

Breakfast is really simple. I cut up cantaloupe (the night before) adding assorted berries, sometimes orange slices (and mangoes when in season.) I also eat my fried potatoes.

I bake potatoes the night before (usually about 4 medium stays fresh for no more than two days.) I do this so I have one in the morning to cut up and fry (without oil) and one in the evening for two days.

Note- check with your doctor before you change your diet.
