One of the best ways to work towards a weight loss goal is to eat a low carb diet. The diet is simple: cut back on sugars and starches, which together are known as carbohydrates. Our home-delivered low carb meals all have less than 30 grams of carbohydrates – perfect for beginning your low carb lifestyle. They’re easy to use, just heat and eat, and they’re nutritionally balanced, so you can be sure you’re still getting all the nutrients you need to stay healthy.
Low carb doesn’t mean going hungry. On a low carb diet, your meals will include a good source of protein, which makes you feel full, and has been scientifically proven to reduce food cravings and lead to you automatically consuming fewer calories per day. With the Fitfood low carb meals, you’ll also eat a ton of fresh low carb vegetables, like broccoli and cauliflower, spinach, tomatoes and cabbage, and healthy fats, like olive oil, butter and avocado.
Your body will adjust to your new low carb diet by burning stored fat for energy, rather than carbs, which will help you lose weight. Another benefit of going low carb is that it helps lower your insulin levels, which allows the kidneys to shed excess water and salts, reducing bloating.
To help you achieve your healthy weight goal, try lifting weights three times a week. When you begin to lose weight, your metabolism will slow down, working against the weight loss. Lifting weights will burn calories and keep your metabolism from slowing. As long as you’re eating enough protein, you should still be able to build muscle while you’re on a low carb diet.
As well as being reliable, a low carb diet is one of the quickest ways to lose weight - you should start to notice a difference within the first week or two. But to make sure you don’t put the weight straight back on, you need to make the diet sustainable. Try the home delivered Fitfood low carb meals and find your favourites – a big part of sticking to a diet is still enjoying the foods you eat.
