The Lean Start Up Guide For Diets.
High Fiber, Low Fat Diet with exercise. Just don’t ever forget to count your carbs.
The lean Start Up Guide For Diets, is a bit of a spin-off on the name for this website. The idea being that the word lean in general applies to many things. The most typical usage is regarding diets, and it is my adaptation to use the very same word for start-up’s meaning ventures.
The most important concepts I will be expound is a thorough explanation regarding how the body uses one of the primary food groups, carbohydrates, carbs. One of the ineffectively utilized naturally available “dietary supplement” which is not actually a supplement but is rather as common as the grass that grows everywhere is fiber.
In case you have not yet gotten the whole carb versus fiber issue, I will state it plainly without any distracting background images. When you look at the packaging of certain food such as:
Tortilla Wraps For Instance, you may find some very interesting statictics on the package. You may find instead of just carbohydates, you might find a term called “Total Carbohydrates” this term includes the carbs which the human body is not able to utllized for its energy needs. Often on the packaging of certain products you may find something like “Net Carbs”. The concept of “net carbs” is important because the body uses only the “net carbs” for its “energy needs”.
Therefore, when you have a specific diet that calls for only a limited number of carbs, you can safely exclude an entire category of carbohydrates which fall into the category of fiber. For example one might ask the question:
How many net carbs does broccoli have? I looked up the answer and found:
1 cup cooked broccoli is 13.2 g carbs
subtact the 6 grams of fiber, and you have a total of 7.2 g net carbs.
Additionally I would go out on a very fibrous limb and also state that is is more like the “flower part” of the broccoli has more net carbs and generally is more appealing as far as being tasty. However if your ever either cut up “just the broccoli stems” either from raw broccoli or steamed broccoli there is no missing out on exactly what we mean when we discuss fiber.
Of all the little disclaimers one might here, you will alway notice the following terms being added to any TV commercial promoting the latest weight loss plan or supplement:
High Fiber, Low Fat, Exercise. Unfortunately, you will not often hear the real culprit of many diet which are, you guessed the carbohydrate family.
