Topic: What is so bad about, when dieting to eat carbs and fruits?
November 17, 2019 / By Lyra Question:
I know in the South Beach Diet it eliminates cravings, but I'm losing weight without trying to avoid carbs and fruits, I'm actually eat three fruits a day. All I'm doing is avoiding crap like doritos oreos and other highly processed foods and reducing portion sizes, and increasing exercise. Do I really need to avoid carbs and fruits to lose weight? And the carbs I'm eating aren't bad, non-white bread mainly for sandwiches for lunch, and white rice for dinner. Maybe less rice?

Sounds like what you're doing is about right. Cut out junk food - over-processed sugary products, take more exercise (even walking), reduce portion sizes. You need a balanced diet and cutting out things like carbs is not good in the long term. I don't know about the South Beach diet but cutting out fruit sounds wrong to me. Here in Britain it is recommended that each person have five portions of fruit or veg a day.

There are two rules to proper weight loss (if you want to lose fat rather than muscle, that is):
1.) Eat less calories than you burn. If you burn 2,500 calories per day, eat less than that.
2.) Eat 1 gram of protein per pound of lean body mass.
That's it. As long as you do those two things, you will lose healthy weight.
If you follow rule #1 but not rule #2, then you run the risk of losing your muscle tone and simply becoming a smaller you. So if you want to lose the jiggly fat, then you need the protein. Period.
Fruit is fine. I eat lots of fruit and veggies.

Actually, you don't need to diet in fact if you want to lose weight, I learned this at the website in the box below, they have plenty of guidance, I worked off 6 pounds by following their tips.

Why are you fearful of carbs? They deliver you vigour....and such as you acknowledged, in case your energy are @ 1200, you can shed some pounds regardless. Just maintain matters constant and you can see weight reduction

In the low carb diet world carbs from green veggies don't count toward your daily total. Just a piece of info since you don't like the meat. Most low carb info says to crash down to fewer then 20g a day and slowly add more based on the weight loss goal. Since none of our carbs from green veggies count focus on keeping the carbs from bread and the like under 20 at first then after a week or two add say 5 grams. Follow this pattern til your carb intake matches your goals of weight loss.
