Mr. Tommy Treslo, himself, sent me this article and it’s a damn good one.
It talks about the 100g of carbs per day “diet.” Two of the smartest nutrition guys in the world wrote this back in 2010. They found that the holy grail of nutrition is to eat (about) 100g of carbs per day.
Before getting into this, how can you take action on this?
1. Download Myfitnesspal, Fat Secret, or another similar app.
2. Track what you’re eating. EVERYTHING. Including the weekends.
3. Keep carbs at 100g or lower per day. That’s 700g/week. That’s why tracking on weekends matter!
To give you the cliff notes… Taken right from the article:
You can fit this solution into any way you please into your current diet. You can fit into to your intermittent fasting. You can fit into weight watchers. The 100g/day is a little too high for Keto, but they provide reasoning why (about) 100g/day seems to be the sweet spot.
This simple solution makes more sense than just about any diet strategy you’ll ever try.
It’s low carb, but not super low carb. At 100 grams of carbs per day, you won’t be in ketosis, but your carbs will be low enough that you’ll be preferentially stoking your metabolic furnace with stored and dietary fats and not carbs. Also, most people won’t experience any mental fogginess, crabbiness, or lack of energy that often accompany really low-carb diets.
With 100 grams of carbohydrates allowed every day, there’s no reason to avoid nutritionally ass-kicking fruits, berries, and vegetables as you have to do with 20 and 30 gram diets. This not only allows you to eat good-for-ya foods, it opens up your diet to a wider variety of meal choices.
By focusing on the 1 macronutrient of carbs and limiting to 100g, you will self-regulate what else you’re eating. The other foods will have to come from proteins and fats. In short, it’s just difficult to overeat when your food choices are controlled and carbs don’t exceed 100 grams daily.
Pretty damn simple right?
What’d y’all think? Anyone interested in giving this a try?
