Opt for Low Carb Diets to Lose Weight Without Starving

There is always a new diet on the horizon, something that promises to make you skinny in a quick way, and many of them, such as low carb diets, actually work. However, how many diets require that you feel like you are starving (or actually do starve you in order to lose the weight)? A lot, actually.

The Extreme Feeding Tube Diet

One of the newest fads in dieting is the new trend for brides-to-be. They want to quickly lose weight before their wedding, so they go on a “feeding tube diet.” This diet literally consists of getting all nutrition through a feeding tube. The tube provides a low carb and low calorie diet and intentionally throws the body into ketosis to force it to burn its own existing fat for fuel.

However, low carb diets do the exact same thing, but you don’t have to feel hungry all the time to achieve the same results. For most people, one of the biggest selling points of the low carb diet is that you don’t have to starve while on it. So many diets (including the feeding tube diet) require that you are left feeling hungry and craving foods all the time, whereas a low carb diet allows you to feel full while still losing weight.

We Have to be Honest with Ourselves

In order to lose weight (particularly if we want to keep the weight off for any length of time at all), we have to first be honest with ourselves. Unless you have a medical condition that contributes to your weight, it was a weakness for certain foods that got you to a place you are uncomfortable with. If, given that you are still the same person battling your own weaknesses constantly, you are given a choice between eliminating carbs but eating as much protein as you want, or not putting a bite of food into your mouth at all, which would you choose? It’s certainly easier to stick with a low carb diet and feel full, and battle only cravings for carbs, than it is to battle cravings for carbs, protein and fat and feeling like you are starving. It seems like a very slim chance the success rate of this new form of low carb diet will be very high, even in the short term.

Instead of feeling like you are starving, opt for the more doable version of a high carb diet and feel full all the time! Browse our selection of great low carb foods to enjoy while losing weight at just as quickly of a rate as those getting all their nutrition from a feeding tube!

Cinnergen Liquid Cinnamon Supplement is now available!

Cinnergen, the cranberry/cinnamon liquid supplement is now available in a 32 fl. oz. bottle. As stated by Cinnergen, “Cinnergen delivers concentrated nutrition to help the body efficiently and effectively metabolize sugar. One of the main reasons blood sugar imbalances occur is because the typical diet is not only high in sugar but also deficient in several of the vital nutrients the body needs to properly process sugar and turn it into energy. If these nutrients are not provided by the foods we eat, our bodies are forced to leach them from elsewhere in the system. As a whole food complex, Cinnergen provides several key ingredients that have been found through emerging science and years of research to improve digestion and utilization of sugar. As the body becomes more efficient with glucose metabolism, overall health is improved.”
