Topic: Diet advice.which is better low-far/low-carb?
October 18, 2019 / By Mildred Question:
I have been yoyo dieting for several of months now. I am 5'5 and weigh 140-145lbs. I would love to lose anywhere between 10-15 pounds by summer but i dont know how too. I am mother of 2. I tried the low-carb and it went well, i lost about 5 pounds but as soon as i started eating normal again i gained it back. My biggest problem also is eating late. I put the kids to bed and around that time is where i get to relax and watch TV and start snacking. I am also emotional eater. I want to start a good diet, but dont know which one to follow low-fat or low-carb. What did you do that worked the best for you. thank,

Part of doing low carb is that you can eat fish, beef, poultry, most vegetables and select fruit without counting fat or calories. Its been my experience doing low carb and low fat doesnt work as well as just low carb.. but thats me. Also, Dr. Atkins suggested his findings were that low fat didnt work well combined with low carb and actually stalled weight loss.
But here is the deal.. whatever you try, you have to pick something you can do for life.. if you go back to your old ways, no matter what program you use, you will gain the lost weight back.
Southbeach is an example of lowcarb low fat. If thats your preference, learn all about it.. and stay in the maintenance phase for ever..
I personally lost just over 60 lbs on Atkins. I lost 50 of it 50 years ago and Im down 17 lbs since Jan 2nd of this year. I love chips, bread and pasta but I love fitting in my jeans more.. and I can eat anything I want.. once in awhile.

Originally Answered: Is bread a carb. Does low carb mean no carb or should you have a certain amount in your diet.?
Bread is definitely high in carbohydrate. Carbohydrates are high in energy (i.e. calories), but in most cases you should have a reasonable amount of carbohydrate in your diet.
Whole wheat carbs are great, as they release energy slowly, so your body will receive energy over time and you will not get hungry as quick. Whole wheat is better than processed carbs (such as white bread) because processed carbs are simpler carbs, like sugars, so they are absorbed by the body much quicker, and you will get hungry again sooner.
Your body needs energy just to exist. It needs even more if you exercise. You need 1500-2500 calories per day just to exist (though it varies on your body composition). Carbohydrates are definitely important to give you energy. Low carb does not mean no carb. However, virtually all foods have some carbohydrate in them.
If you are at a healthy weight and moderately active, you should be fine eating carbs at every meal.
combine your resistance training with short bursts of high intensity cardio to increase your post workout calorie burn

Both! The best way is to do both low fat and low carb at the same time!
Ive lost like 4 kg (9 pounds) in the last 3 weeks with low-fat, low-carbs and high protein diet and lots of exercise.

Your on a good start by cutting out the sodas (devils drink) and candy and juices.
here is a good sample diet for you.
breakfast: quaker weight control oatemeal (its good) or a cup of total cereal w/skim milk.
snack: piece of fruit (your choice)
lunch: chicken/ tuna on salad w/ nofat dressing (lightly) or turkey sandwich on wheat bead or cup of soup (healthy choice brand makes some good soups)
dinner: lean meat (fish, chicken, turkey, lean beef) a green veggie such as peas, asparagus, brocoli, green beans or salad and brown rice.
late snack: protien drink or chocolate milk made with skim milk or a fruit smoothie.
I know this diet sounds boring, but you don't have to do it forever, just until you get to an ideal weight, also don't be afraid to splurge one day a week and eat whatever you want, just be sure to avoid the sodas!
Also you must, must, must get some exercise! If you can train with weights that would be ideal, if not you should power walk or jog, swim, or do cardio aerobics. You must train 5 days a week if you want quick results! A good rule of thumb is try and break a sweat everyday. Also try to have fun!
