Need to know.... on the 'No-carb Diet'

Hi sweets, so sorry about the delay on some of your questions, network has been really bad here, don't know if its same for you. I just got most of the alerts this morning. Please bear with me. Thank you.

I got a comment from someone that said she didn't see any changes in her weight after she did the one week 'no carb' diet. (Disclaimer;  can i just say again that if you decide to try this diet, you do so at your own risk.) 

     Today, i just want to address a few things that those trying out the diet may need to know;
1. First of all please know that We all have different body types, structures, sizes etc. Some people tend to lose weight faster than others, same way some people gain weight faster than others. So don't be too upset if you don't see a major change, you just need to keep trying till you find what works for you.

2. Before you start please weigh yourself and take note of that weight. Weigh yourself in the morning after you wake up, and move your bowel. Weigh yourself again in the morning of the 8th day at the same time after you must have moved your bowel so that you will get an accurate reading. And be sure if you actually lost anything. People make the mistake of weighing themselves in the gym after they must have drank so much water or eaten a banana or 2.

3. Weigh yourself without clothes on both days. You will be surprised what your clothes weigh, especially when full of sweat after working out. Its best to weigh without clothes for accurate result. this is why i encourage people to buy their own scale. They sell at shoprite for less than 6k.  Please make the investment, it goes a long way to help with your weight loss.

4. Don't eat too much protein at one sitting, Limit the size to that of your palm, and always have some veggies to go with it.

5. Limit your night meals to fruits or only veggies and a little fish. keep it light so you don't get bloated by morning.

6. Do not STARVE! If you starve your body will hoard fat and you wont see any changes.

7. Exercise!! If you want to see maximum results then you must add exercise to your routine. Exercise is also good for toning your body so you don't end up with flabs and lose skin all over.

8. If you have lost a lot of weight already, tendency is that you might not get much results because your body is growing resistant to something you have been doing, so i would say keep trying different things till you find what works. I lost quite a bit because this was my first time of doing this diet, and i worked out like mad. I knew that if i did the diet alone, the result wont be much.

9. Don't cheat, i didn't cheat through out the diet, not even a grain of rice entered my mouth. I left the cheating for yesterday...hehehehe! (i had a bar of chocolate...Shhhhh!) If you cheat it might affect your result o, don't say i didn't warn you.

10. Be prepared. Gather everything you need for this, organize them and be ready. You can prepare all your meat and chicken, before hand and freeze.  Boil and keep your beans in the freezer, then you are left with only prepping the veggies. You just need to take them to work and pop in the microwave. I am saying this because of those with really tight work schedules. Don't let excuses and procrastination stop you from shedding this weight.

Best of luck and lets hear how you are doing. Take care. God bless.
