So you are going along your merry way, losing weight and then BAM the scale stops moving! You have hit a plateau! Now what?
Well first thing is first…are you in ketosis? If you are not in ketosis, then go back to basics and rid your diet of carbs. Oh, but wait, can you hit a plateau AND still be in ketosis? Yes you can! What is the solution? It could be a lack of water.
In order to lose fat your body must go through a process called hydrolysis, which requires lots of water. Hydrolysis allows the mobilization of fat and toxins from your body. How much water do you need? At minimum, we should consume 64 oz of water a day. Yes, water. Not coffee, not soft drinks…water. Water helps move the fat.
Remember coffee and other caffeine drinks actually work as a diuretic, so for every ounce of caffeinated drink once ounce of water would be needed to negate the diuretic effect. Then you still have to drink at least 64 ounces of water in addition to that! Also, if you exercise or if it’s extremely hot, guess what? You need more water!
One caveat.. there are some arguments for drinking caffeine free beverages in place of water, (e.g herbal teas, lemonade, etc) but beware, there can be hidden calories and carbs in these drinks. Plus, lets face it you body KNOWS what to do with water, so there is no question that if you take in enough, you can wash the fat away! More to come on plateaus…stay tuned!
It’s football season again! Everyone is ready to sit around the TV and eat a healthy meal right? HA!!! Probably not. Carby treats are everywhere; chips, candy, popcorn, you name it! What is a low carber to do? It is actually quite easy! Here are some fun ideas for your next tailgate party…
Cheese, Meat and Olive Tray
Cube a variety of cheeses, slice your favorite cold cuts or sausages and add olives. Serve with a low carb hot mustard. Easy and delicious!
Preheat oven to 400 degress. Chop leafy kale removing stems. Add olive oil till glistening. Add popcorn seasoning, salt, and/or cajun seasoning. Toss till coated. Place oiled/seasoned kale on a sheet pan evenly in one layer. (do not stack, the kale will not get crispy.) Bake for 12 minutes until kale is crisp.
