As many of you know, either though knowing me personally, reading my blog, or listening to my podcast, I have struggled to lose this last 4-10 pounds for a while. In an endeavor to trick my body to losing weight again, I have picked up Chris Powell’s book: Choose to Lose, The 7 Day Carb Cycle Solution. I just finished the book yesterday and plan to take the next 2 weeks to try his method.
Also, in the near future I plan on writing a book review and let everyone know my results and what I think about this weight loss plan.
We all know naturally thin people. You know, the kind of person who can eat anything they want and it does not effect their weight in the slightest. I have had many friends like this. While I was trying my hardest to lose weight by staying away from high-carb food, thinner friends would gorge themselves on things like pizza and ice cream.
However, there is some bad news for naturally thin people. While they may not be gaining weight form eating high-carb food, they are still damaging their bodies. Or to put another way: Carbs are not good for skinny people either.
The truth is being overweight is just one sign that you are unhealthy. Skinny people who eat poorly can and more than likely will still suffer from things like high blood pressure, stroke, diabetes, and a whole host of other problems.
Also, later in life, naturally thin people will get fatter. They may never look like those people you see on weight loss TV shows. However, we have all run into thin people with a big pot belly. How did that happen? Too many carbs.
In summary, eating a low-carb diet is not just for overweight people. Healthy eating is for everyone. If you are a naturally thin person, do not fool yourself into thinking you can eat whatever you want. All those carbs will catch up to you eventually.
