For all of the extremists out there, this one’s for you: the zero-carb diet. It’s exactly what is sounds like, no carbs at all.
So which foods qualify?
- Seafood (except for some shellfish that contain carbs, consult Google)
- A few green vegetables
- Some cheeses, mainly the hard ones (check the nutrition label if you’re unsure)
- Heavy cream (check the nutrition label because some contains more dairy than others)
- Spices and salt
- Water, coffee, tea, diet soda
That’s it. Very restrictive, but incredibly simple.
Depending on your point of view, it’s also very liberating; food choice becomes incredibly easy.
If you follow this diet for a while, you’ll kill any food addiction you have, guaranteed.
(Whenever I follow zero-carb, I do a variation where I omit green vegetables and spices. I guess that technically makes me an anti-vegan.)
That’s it for changes to your diet. Implementing any of these will help you lose fat. Up next is fasting. You can choose to fast without dieting, but if you combine it with a diet, you’ll supercharge your fat loss.
