There is a very important distinction to be made here because we know that eating in this way does not lead to greater long term health. Notice how much fat you add to naturally healthy, low fat foods like vegetables, potatoes or whole grain bread – look for alternatives to the butter, oil, cheese and sour cream that are naturally low in fat like salsa, fruit jam, lemon juice, flavored vinegars, etc.
The average American consumes about 15 grams of fiber a day, but the Recommended Daily Allowance is almost twice that much! A well structured, low fat high fiber diet will help you achieve weight loss and optimal health. I'm Kari - aka Plant Powered Yogi: natural foodie, yoga teacher and wanna-be chef extraordinaire.

All plans come as a Standard license, and can be upgraded to an Enhanced license at any time. Carbohydrates include foods such as breakfast cereal, pasta, bread, soft drink, grains, biscuits, fruit juice, lollies, potatoes, pizza etc etc. Because carbs induce an insulin response which encourages the body to hold on to fat storage which can lead to insulin resistance, weight gain, inflammation, diabetes and leptin resistance – which leads to more over eating…and the cycle continues!
High carbohydrate diets are also associated with mental health issues such as depression and anxiety as well as increased cardiovascular risks.
Controlling insulin sensitivity and blood sugar levels to better control your appetite and your hormones meaning you can control a healthy weight range and reduce inflammation in the body.
By removing the refined carbs such as grains and wheat you are effectively removing most of the gluten in your diet and as we know, gluten increases intestinal permeability known as leaky gut and causes an imbalance of gut microbiota known as gut dysbiosis which increases autoimmunity and inflammation.
Further its a great way for diabetics to keep blood sugar levels stable, for everyone for overall weight reduction, epilepsy, skin acne, Polycystic Ovary Syndrome and other neurological diseases. In addition your mood swings and sugar cravings should abate since fat takes longer to digest and helps to keep your blood sugar levels stable, meaning less cravings to hit the sweet spot.
Also if you suffer adrenal issues and thyroid conditions getting slightly more carb may suit your make up and lead you to better health. So remove the processed carbs and increase your fats and help your body to repair and dampen inflammation.
Since the body does not NEED carbohydrates for energy, we can use fat for energy instead, there are no risks. If you suffer adrenal fatigue, thyroid issues or you are a sprint athlete who needs carbs for explosive fitness, then including healthy carbs is perfectly acceptable and even recommended.


I once ate pasta and bread every day of my life pretty much (yes, I was addicted!) and can say I haven’t touched pasta or bread in over two years now without any issue or complaint. Secondly, when you build your plate focus on a palm worth of protein for women (2 for men) and then get at least a thumb print of full fat  (to start as you transition, working your way up) and then finally good healthy vegetable carbs such as sweet potato. Having a low fat diet that is also high in fiber is an effortless, natural by-product of eating a well structured whole food plant based diet.
Merely swapping out full fat processed foods for lower fat versions will not create the health you desire.
A low fat high fiber diet that is based on WHOLE plant foods does work for weight loss and also provides significant improvement in overall health. There is soluble fiber that helps to lower cholesterol, and insoluble fiber that acts as roughage and scrubs the intestinal walls, keeping bowel movements, well, moving.
Because our stomachs have stretch receptors (as well as nutrient receptors) that help to tell us when we’ve gotten enough food, fiber-full foods fill up the stomach with fewer calories that fiber-less foods {try saying that 10 times!
If you have been eating a high fat, low fiber diet it will take some time to adjust, however. My family and I live in Maine but someday I'll escape to a tropical home where I can practice yoga in the sun and feast on mangoes all day long. My goal is to share not only solid, scientifically based nutrition information with you, but also the recipes I use everyday in my home for my family, and the support and inspiration you need to help you make the connection between food and your health.

You won’t see much of a difference in health outcomes by comparing a typical diet of 40+% fat to one with 30+%. More and more we are seeing dietitians turning their backs on the out of date and bent science.

This will keep you out of trouble of complaints from colleagues jaleous of your success.Kudos to you! It reinforces my amazement that so many people are apparently unwilling to even give this approach a try; what have they got to lose, for cripes' sake? And yet we still have authority figures within the field like Marion Nestle preaching the eat-less-move-more mantra and studiously ignoring everything Gary Taubes has written. That wouldn't be so bad in itself, but according to her blog she is "Paulette Goddard Professor in the Department of Nutrition, Food Studies, and Public Health (the department she chaired from 1988-2003) and Professor of Sociology at New York University. Who wants grains again?Yesterday I got new glasses: half dioptria less in one eye (the same in the other).
I am not saying people here are diabetics or even pre diabetic, but they may have had a drop in average BG numbers with their new lifestyle.
I did not have as many problems as she had, but the ones In common have been the same resolve. Some people need a little bit of carbs as long as it comes in the form of fruits and vegetables.
Being able to adjust the diet up and down with the amount of carbs means one can find the right amount of carbs and protein to have the greatest success.
You can look at it here and find 3 amazing videos that are very educational to convince even the most skeptical critic about the dangers of carbohydrates.
