The Low Carb Meal: Turn Your Imagination Loose

The foundation of a low carb diet, and low carb meals, is protein, with some fats. But even the most enthusiastic supporters of the low carb lifestyle agree that a low carb meal is not likely to be satisfying unless it contains small amounts of carbs in the form of fresh or lightly cooked vegetables. A straight diet of protein and fat will not only become monotonous; it will very quickly become unhealthy.

A low carb meal can be both nutritious and delicious, if the preparer knows how to combine spices and herbs, meats, fish, vegetables, and the small amounts of starches which can make all the difference between sticking with a low carb food plan and losing interest. As long as the food is good, the family will not complain, and will benefit from the lack of preservative?loaded, nutritionally-depleted processed foods in their diet.

Break Out The Herbs
Any low carb meal is fair game for the cook?s liberal use of herbs; fresh garlic and onions are staples in many a low carb kitchen. Both garlic and onions have a variety of health benefits; garlic is known to prevent cholesterol buildup. If your family has difficulty with the odor of garlic, elephant garlic will provide the same benefits, but softens when baked and makes a delicious spread with a very sweet flavor.

Because a low carb meal necessarily skimps on the starches like potatoes, bread, rice, and pasta–in fact , some low carb meal programs do not even allow carrots–they can require a period of adjustment, especially for those who have become starch junkies. For those who simply must have their starches, the obvious choice is to head for the whole grain breads and pastas; brown rice; and natural potatoes in their skins instead of boxed instant mashed potatoes.

Low Carb Pasta And Salad Meals
For pasta junkies, the secret?s in the sauce. A low carb meal with a little bit of whole grain pasta accompanied by a chunky tomato sauce with plenty of lean meat, fresh peppers, mushrooms, onion, garlic, and enough cheese to please the most cheese-loving palate can sent the mouth into sensory overload, and still meet the low carb and high nutrition requirements of the ideal low carb meal. The pasta?s there; it?s simply not the star of the show.

For salad lovers, the low carb meal is a breeze. Every grocery store?s produce department has a wide selection of pre-washed and bagged ?salad mixes?, ready to be tossed into a bowl and turned into dinner. The most nutritionally rich of these are the spring mixes with their dark green and red baby lettuces, endive, and spinach; or the spinach itself experience. Going organic will give you an even sweeter experience.

Your best bet for a low carb salad dressing is to make your own from olive oil and a flavored vinaigrette or sesame oil and rive vinegar; many ?diet? bottled dressings add sugar to make up for the flavor they lose when the fat is removed. But whatever dressing you choose, make sure the fats it contains are, like olive oil, monounsaturated. You can even come up with a signature dressing by adding your favorite herbs or spices to real mayonnaise, and diluting the mix with lemon juice.

You can add a variety of low carb veggies; cooked meat, fish, or seafood, low carb fruit like grapefruit or berries; crumbles of feta or bleu cheese; the salad bowl is your domain!

Super Green Tea Diet – A Revolutionary Way To Lose Weight.

Many health products use extracts of green tea in their formulation; an extremely complex herb, green tea is used in many types of health products and as an antioxidant. Using green tea weight loss products to burn off extra calories is claimed to be the most natural method and you won’t find a better source; one which can be purchased in liquid form, taken as tablets and even drunk as normal tea.

It has a wide range of benefits for the human metabolism but first and foremost, it has great anti-aging properties, accelerating cell regeneration and slowing the oxidation process in the system. Whilst this is an added benefit, weight loss products rely on its ability to work as a natural laxative and use it as a product that purges toxins from the system. The body’s system is stimulated into burning more calories than usual, and will thus avoid useless accumulation of fat tissue.

All the benefits of green tea weigh loss supplements can easily be ruined if the person taking them feels they can still abuse their body without consequence. Improvement to general eating habits is necessary because the intention to lose weight implies the dieter wants a much healthier lifestyle.

Although green tea can be used at any time of the day and in many ways as a beverage, it is most effective when taken immediately before bed. weight loss products containing this product can take some getting used too and often there may be some bowel irritation for a couple of days but it will pass. This effect is quite normal especially for new users and is down to the way that green tea weight loss supplements speed up the metabolism so calories do not have time to become fat tissue. If you maintain other parts of your diet; exercise, plenty of liquids and vegetables, results of using it can be seen within a week.

One very successful combination of green tea products is that which includes ginseng root extract. Ginseng helps by adding minerals and vitamins that will increase its efficiency and detoxification properties.

Ginseng is also beneficial for the immune system and when used in combination with green tea, helps to improve the energy level of a person who is losing weight so they do not feel so lethargic. People can use ginseng and tea tree combined for extended periods of six months without any side-effects becoming apparent so they are extremely safe to use.

Weight Loss Discussion – To Be Or Not To Be Fat??

Show me a female who can sincerely admit that she is happy with her appearance in every way. Someone, who wouldn?t change a thing about herself/himself even if it was as easy as just wishing it. Unless that person is a bold one living-on-some-mountain monk, I don?t think that that kind of person exists.

Our physical shape is dictated to us as well as anything else is: dress according to the latest fashion, date the coolest guys (also make sure your parents like them), read the right books, eat the right food. What is the right food, I wonder. Do you open your refrigerator and a carton of milk jumps out of it into your lap, screaming: ?I am good for your heath! Drink me! ?And quit staring at that chocolate cake!!!?.

No help from groceries? Need not worry, ?cause precisely at this point, tones of real good articles and health books emerge to your assistance. Before you know it, your head is overloaded with useful advises of the greatest diets, best cosmetics and the safest birth control accessories ? this is when you lose control instead of gaining it. Your head is spinning, ready to blow up any second, too much information (this would be a good time for me to advise you on a really-really good diet, Just kidding).

This is the point when you should stop. First thing first, take a deep breath. Have you ever considered that perhaps you need not a diet? (Shame on me, I know) But still, could there be any chance at all that all you need is the right nutrition? I?m sure you?ve all heard about dystrophy ? an unpleasant disease that turns a beautiful body into a living (in the better cases) skeleton. Dystrophy, as other such mischief, often arises from the notion that if you are not a top-model-skinny-creature, girl, you are fat. Do yourselves a favor, before starving yourselves to death, throw away a couple of fashion magazines, I am sure you?ll feel better right away.

“you’ll Never Live To See 40…” Maybe you’ve heard about “Fit Over 40,” for those of us who… …

…I guess the title is pretty self-explanatory, isn’t it?

It’s for us old codgers who want to (finally!!) get into shape. My article talked about “modeling,” which is finding someone who’s already done what you want to do, and “copying” them to achieve success fast.

One guy wrote and asked, “So what’s the big deal about modeling, anyway?”

Well, if you want a super shortcut to success, modeling is a HU*GE deal.

Imagine someone blazes a trail across uncharted territory to a new destination. Now YOU want to get to that same destination.

You can either…

a) Blaze your own trail, which is difficult, arduous, and a royal time-consuming pain in the #$%^&…

or you can…

b) Use the trail THEY blazed and simply follow in their footsteps to get where you’re going, quickly and easily.

Hmmm, now which one should you choose…

Plus, seeing other people who were in WORSE shape than you are, who were OLDER than you are when they started to get in shape, should INSPIRE you.

After all, if they can do it, YOU can do it, right? Of course!! You just have to know HOW THE HECK they did it, and then do what they did.

Here are a couple more common questions asked…

Q. “I’m 54 and overweight. Really overweight. Can this help me? Or am I too old?”

A. YES it can help you, and no, you’re not too old. I’ll prove it… Visit the link in my resource box below and scroll about halfway down to here you see the ten photos of people.

The first one is a 77 year old woman who COMPETES in bodybuilding…

The third one was 46 and morbidly obese… now he runs in races

The fifth one is a 62-year-old man who looks better today than he did at 22…

The seventh one regenerated 75% of his DEAD heart tissue and now
competes in bodybuilding at age 74!

so forth.

If they can do it, YOU can do it.

Q. “What benefits can I expect to see on this program?”

A. You’ll have…

…stronger immune system,
…stronger heart,
…fewer inches,
…thinner waistline,
…better sex life,
…higher bone density.
…fewer aches and pains,
…higher levels of naturally-released growth hormone and
testosterone .

And you’ll be…

…better looking,
resistant to disease,
more mentally alert

Q. “Who’s the author, and what makes him an expert?”

A. The author is Jon Benson. He was so out of shape and in such poor health at the age of 35, that his doctor told him if he didn’t change his ways, Jon would never live to see 40.

That was Jon’s wake-up call. He heard Tony Robbins say, “Role modeling is an easy shortcut to massive results fast.” So Jon found people who had been significantly obese or sick, who managed to turn their health completely around.

He learned everything he could about what they did, and then he implemented those strategies into his own life.

In 12 months, Jon totally reversed the damage he had done to his body and literally slashed at least 10-15 years off his biological age.

You can and read about some of Jon’s mentors on his webpage, and you can discover his secrets in “Fit Over 40″…

Q. “What else should I know?”

A. Three things:

First, you get no less than 6 bonuses when you order today. See the website for details.

Second, there is a 60 day money back guarantee. Try it for a full 60 days. If you don’t see a difference, and FEEL a difference, get your money back.

Third, the only valid excuse for NOT getting into shape is if you’re already dead.

Don’t believe me?

Visit the link in the resource box below and scroll down to where you see the list of excuses. Look for yours, and then reads Jon’s answer to it.

One of Jon’s mentors is even in a WHEEL CHAIR. Another was paralyzed and now runs, skis and lifts weights. A third lost 75% of his heart.

Now really, what excuse could you have that tops those?
