Informazioni sull'autore

I am a freelance writer born and based in the UK. I have written books on a variety of subjects which interest me. I like books that are short and to the point and therefore write my books based on this principle so that you do not get bogged down with page filling and pointless waffle, but get the information that you need, quickly and easily. I hope that you agree that this means readers can manage their time better and move on to actually applying the principles in the books.

The Slow Carb Meal Planner - Rachel Henderson

Introduction

The slow carb diet is very popular in America and is beginning to spread across the word. It is similar to the Atkins diet, but is a healthier version and so is something which can be enjoyed by many. The principles of the diet are to avoid anything with carbohydrates in that are easy to absorb. This means no fruit, no sweet vegetables, no sugar, white flour or anything that contains white flour, no rice or any grains and no potatoes. This can seem rather restrictive, especially because we are used to living in a society where eating carbohydrates is the norm.

We use carbohydrates to bulk up our food. If we eat high fibre carbohydrates, such as brown rice or wholemeal pasta, then we are being healthy, but still putting on weight. By replacing these by beans and lentils, we can still get that fibre but without putting on the weight.

These carbohydrates burn quickly in our body. They give us a quick burst of energy and then a slump, which makes us feel hungry for more food. By eating a diet which contains just foods which take the body longer to process then there should be no hunger, no drops in blood sugar and it should be easier to avoid snacks between meals.

Missing out fruit can be a worry for some as it obviously contains important nutrients and fibre. If you are worried, then do have some fruit but avoid the high sugar types. This means do not eat dried fruit, melon or grapes. Have things like berries when they are in season or alternatively try apples, bananas when they are not too ripe and hard pears. Try to combine them with foods that release energy slowly so that you do not get a blood sugar spike and dip such as nuts or cheese. Eat plenty of vegetables as well, because these are nutrient rich and good for fibre especially avocado, which although has a fairly high sugar content, should be eaten for the high fibre benefits.

It is also important to think about keeping a good variation to your diet. It can be tempting to make life easy and just stick to the same meals all of the time. This can make cooking and shopping so much easier,
