Tip: Did You Fall Off the Wagon?

slide_400718_4952512_free

Did you fall off the wagon? Did you eat something you did not plan to eat – or a lot of it?

Here’s what you do: Be kind to yourself. It doesn’t matter. Just move on and get right back to low carb again. Everyone makes mistakes.

This does not mean that “cheat days” are recommended. If you are addicted to sugar or struggle to lose weight, cheating could be a big issue for you. Eating things that trigger your addiction could make you stray from your healthy eating habits and back down into the darkness of addiction again. And weight loss might come to a screeching halt and perhaps it will take time to get it going again.

You’ll have to decide for yourself if it is worth the risk. People with addiction issues usually find it’s not worth it.

This might sound sad and annoying, but it is the undisputed truth. An alcoholic can’t “cheat”, they can’t have just one day of drinking, they’d be right back where they started: addicted and miserable.

There are other ways to achieve the same reward sugary foods give you. Perhaps buying that outfit you want or going on a trip somewhere. Or just by beating the addiction and regaining your health and life.

That being said, if you do happen to eat a lot of stuff you shouldn’t have, be kind to yourself. Stuff happens to everyone. It’s OK.

Just get right back on track. Perhaps by taking our free 2-week low-carb challenge.

Why I Quit Coffee

I love coffee. It’s my drug of choice. But I’ve quit, cold turkey, and for good reasons.

The problems

The first problem is that caffeine is clearly very addictive. I’ve recently been drinking up to 8 cups a day. I don’t like to be addicted like that.

The second problem? Caffeine messes with your brain. After a while you need it to stay focused and energetic. As soon as levels of caffeine drop you’ll feel worse. And the mornings? They are way slower than they could be.

The third thing is that caffeine releases stress hormones, that raise insulin and glucose levels, especially after meals. It could potentially be bad for weight loss.

Quitting

So nine days ago I had my last cup of coffee. From eight to zero cups a day, just like that. What happened? Continue Reading →
