How to be Lean.
Updated: Jan 9, 2021
FOOD is the biggest contributor to general health, fat gain and loss.
Information about diet can be extremely confusing and often contradictory, so let me try to keep it fairly simple. Blood sugar regulation is the most important factor for not only fat loss, but also for longevity and most chronic lifestyle related diseases like cancer.
When blood sugar and insulin are consistently elevated due to excess carbohydrate consumption, the body never needs to tap into its own fat stores for energy. It just runs off of the immediately available blood glucose and stores any excess as body fat. Losing body fat in this scenario is nearly impossible.
So what can I do?
For most people, it’s as simple as transitioning to a high healthy fat, low carbohydrate, moderate protein - and perhaps most importantly - plant-rich diet.
There’s a growing body of evidence that a high-fat, low-carbohydrate diet causes faster and more permanent weight loss than a low-fat diet. And if you think giving up carbs sounds hard, think again! Research shows that appetite satiety and dietary satisfaction are significantly improved with a high fat, low carbohydrate diet that includes moderate protein intake. So adapting a ketogenic diet, consisting of 20% carbohydrates, 65% fat and 15% protein is a good start.
I managed to loose 30 pounds, using a ketogenic diet in connection with an intermittent fasting diet. Time restricted diet gives you a window of 16-18 hours without food and can be achieved by not eating breakfast, so your first meal in the day will be at lunch time. I have tried a lot of different diets in my time, and the Ketogenic and intermittent fasting diet was the easiest to follow, because you do not feel you are starving.
