To lose weight, you are only allowed to have a certain grams of carbohydrates a day, and the amount may varies among individuals.
Let's face it, there is no quick fix, easy answer, magic pill, short cut, cleanse, juice diet, low carb, high carb, low fat, high fat, no carb, high protein, Hollywood magic that will get you in shape and keep you in shape.

People on simple low-carb diets tend to be less concerned about the other macro nutrients (protein and fats) and eat them in any proportion they want.
The LCHF diet takes this idea one step forward by significantly increasing the fat percentage in one’s diet, which is supposed to force the body to use fat as energy.
I’ve sold a few loaves of my paleo bread to people on this diet recently and it started me thinking about the difference between the paleo diet and the LCHF diet. For example, artificial sweeteners are generally discouraged in the paleo diet because of potential health risks. And related to the point above is that the motivation for monitoring fat, carb and protein percentages is to get one’s body into a state of ketosis. The last point is written about quite extensively in Jeff Volek and Stephen Phinney’s book, which states that high carbohydrate diet locks a person into a dependence on carbohydrate as the dominant fuel for exercise. If you are in Singapore and want to join the low-carb high-fat (some are paleo eaters!) community, there is a forum at Hardwarezone here.
A two-year study has found that those on Mediterranean or low-carb diets, such as Atkins, lose more weight than those who go low-fat, and with no ill effects. The study, which appears in Thursday's New England Journal of Medicine, involved 322 moderately obese people, the majority of whom were men. The median weight loss for those on moderate-fat, restricted calorie Mediterranean diet was 9.7 pounds. By contrast, the mean weight loss for those on a low-fat, restricted-calorie diet, aimed at boosting heart health by having participants consume low-fat grains vegetables, fruits and legumes, while limiting intake of fats, sweets and high-fat snacks, was just 6.4 pounds. The study also found that the Mediterranean and low-carb diets yielded the most health benefits, such as improvements in blood pressure and cholesterol. The study was conducted in Israel between 2005 and 2007 and carried out by randomly assigning participants to the three main diet groups, each of which received the counsel of a registered dietician.
Lead study author Iris Shai, acknowledging that most diets are difficult to adhere to, said what the study demonstrated that many dieters have a tough time sticking to a low-fat regimen.
Of the 322 persons who started the study, a total of 272 were able to adhere to their diets for the full two years, reaping even greater rewards in terms of weight loss.

This stems from the work done by Cordain, Eaton and others whose research found that the majority of paleo and hunter gatherer diets are lower in carbohydrates and higher in protein and fat than today’s diet. A diet high in refined carbohydrate diets is not healthy – especially the standard western diet, where carbohydrates are eaten far in excess of requirements.
Of course you don’t need to count carbs, but in my observation, many in the paleo world do not eat enough carbs.
Do you know how much carb would have vegetable juice only from spinach salad and celery 32 oz?
While this may be the impression that you have or it may even have been stated in comments by those who jump to conclusions, this has never been the position of any leading proponents of low carb eating that I have read: such as Gary Taubes. Surely it is up to each of us to find out the level of dietary carbohydrate that we can tolerate?
And yes for the most part I am talking to people who have some weight to lose but are generally healthy.
If you were to have more than 1 cup of the “non carbs” would you consider them a carb then?
For sources of carbohydrate, give priority to leafy green vegetables, followed by low-carb fruits and legumes. Some fruits are allowed, but fruits with high glycemic index which will raise the blood sugar levels rapidly are restricted.
With this low carb meals plan, you will only have less than 20 grams of net carbs daily, so as to switch your body into the state of ketosis.
Sorry to burst your bubble but if you want to look good 365 days a year, you need and must have dedication, commitment, stable nutrition, appropriate exercise and lifestyle changes! They have been popular in recent years and even my rice-loving mum would tell my brother not to eat so much rice if he wants to get rid of his tummy fats. So they may cut out the rice and bread from their meals and eat lean white chicken breast, for example.
So instead of eating lean white chicken breast meat, the dieter eats the fattiest part of the chicken, while keeping carbs low at the same time. But the LCHF diet is more relaxed about this because of the psychological necessity to get some sweetness into meals (fruits are not allowed because of the sugar).
When you exclude grains and sweets from your diet, you tend to eat a lot less carbs than the average person. I always believe that everyone is different and the only way to find out what works for you and what you thrive on is to experiment on yourself and monitor your well being.
It found that the median weight loss of 10.3 pounds for those on a low-carb, unrestricted calorie diet, in which participants avoided refined carbohydrates like sugar, flour as well as trans fats.
Such diets are rich in vegetables and low in red meat, with poultry and fish replacing beef and lamb. Those with diabetes assigned to eat a Mediterranean diet also saw a greater improvement in their blood sugar levels compared to those in the low-fat group.

However it needs to be noted (again) that this may be because of the dietary availability of carbohydrates, and the higher availability of protein sources.
Very low carbohydrate diets are widely promoted for weight loss, and the low carbohydrate trend has become entwined with paleo eating.
Most feel better on a moderate carb diet, which is still a lot lower in carbs than the standard western diet, and more importantly if you eat a paleo diet, you will be cutting out the damaging carbohydrates. I also see many CrossFitters eating low carb diets and suffering – low energy, poor recovery, sleep problems, adrenal fatigue. This is because they eat lots of volume of vegetables, but not enough of the carbohydrate containing ones.
It was as close as I could get to net carbs, there is a lot of variation in foods, so this should be seen as a rough guideline. I juice every morning but only leafy green like spinach lettuce, celery lime lemon, cucumber, no beet no carot, how should I count it?
So, I am considering backing off protein a little and increasing carbs a little to see if this will help increase my energy and workout recovery. The advantages of this range from weight loss to blood sugar stabilisation to improving sports performance. The reader takes full responsibility for counting nutritional information such as carbs, while trying any and all recipes.
More recently after finding that eating Paleo food choices was the "icing on the cake" health wise, I have become a Paleo enthusiast and teacher. Quality carbohydrates eaten in the context of a paleo diet will be less that the standard diet. I then experimented with Atkins, thinking this must be the ultimate in avoiding carbs, and gave myself some sort of terrible hormonal imbalance – my skin was shocking, periods irregular, no energy, just a mess. Don’t have any food issues other than enjoy eating sugary food which I stopped since Paleo became my way of eating. For fats, go for healthy vegetable oils (such as corn oil, olive oil, canola oil, etc.), as well as from nuts and seeds and fruits like avocado. But in the paleo world, canola, which is a genetically engineered hybrid derived from rapeseed, will not be found in our cupboards because it is highly processed.
I really don’t need to lose weight but am flabby around the waist especially after gaining weight to help increase muscle mass while lifting weights (back squat, deadlift, and military press) which are part of my Crossfit workouts.
The diet also has to be high in fat (around 70% of calorie intake) rather than high in protein because excess protein can be converted into glucose, which will kick you out of ketosis. Also, as I’ve gotten fitter and slimmer, my carb tolerance and maybe even need for carbs has increased. At least not until you create new habits, both exercise habist and nutrition habits, that will not only GET you into shape but KEEP you in shape year round. If you are looking to get into shape for an event, a wedding for example, yes, this program will work for you. But I GUARANTEE that once you achieve your goal, and go back to the habits you have been living with up and until this point you will be right back where you are today and perhaps even a little heavier, a little more out of shape. So why not use that event, whatever it may be, to be the stage that sets up your life for the greatest version of you?
