Too Many Low-Carb Foods!

Have you hit a plateau in your weight-loss journey? If you have not yet, you will. I don’t say this to be negative. It is just that we all hit these walls while we are trying to shed those pounds. But if you have hit that wall, you do not want to quit. Instead, it is best to get to the bottom of the problem and find out what you need to do to get your metabolism burning again.

Possible Cause 

As a health and motivation coach, I have seen many reasons why people stop losing weight. One of the most common is too much of a good thing. What I mean by that is too much low-carb food.

Going low-carb is great and there are all sorts of great low-carb recipes. In addition, there are all sorts of recipes to turn your favorite high-carb foods into low-carbohydrate dishes. But what people sometimes overlook is that low-carb food is not no-carb food.

Recently, I was consulting with a client that had stopped losing weight. When I asked him about his diet, I learned that he was regularly consuming low-carb spaghetti. The carb count was around five per serving. However, he was eating about four to six servings per meal. In addition, he was also eating many servings of his favorite low-carb desserts!

Of course the reader can see the problem. Those carbs can add up. And eating too much low-carb foods will spike ones blood sugar leading to the resale of insulin resulting in the storage of fat.

If you have stopped losing weight, it may be the result of too much low-carbohydrate food. Be aware of how many carbs you are consuming and remember–low-carb is not no-carb. planking2 001 Snack 006
