Why a low carb diet?
In a low-carb diet, you cut out carbohydrates which makes your body enter a metabolic state called ‘ketosis’. In this state, you will stop getting your energy from carbs - instead, your body will burn your fat-stores, which will lead to weight loss.
A few tips from nutritionist Kelly Hafner to keep you at the top of your game:
For a comprehensive and tailored plan and guidance in making the most of a lifestyle change, we recommend to get in touch with Kelly Hafner’s Nutrition at:
Avoid foods with more ingredients on the label than you can count! Stick with foods as close to their natural state as possible.
Begin your day by drinking a glass of warm water with ½ lemon. This simple practice supports weight loss, boosts the immune system and it sets up your digestive system for the day.
Start the day with a good breakfast containing 20g protein.
Avoid ‘eating on the run’. It is so important to be in a relaxed state when you eat so that you can properly digest your food. Proper digestion allows you to absorb the nutrients in your food which in turn will result in increased energy levels.
Stay hydrated throughout the day – feeling tired is one of the first signs of dehydration! Drink water and herbal teas throughout the day. Holy Basil and Tulsi teas are great choices that can help to reduce stress.
Do not forget to eat! This causes imbalances in blood sugar levels which leads to low energy, cravings and weight gain
Finish eating at least 2 hours before you go to bed. This allows your body to focus on ‘maintenance and repair rather than digestion while you sleep and you will wake up feeling more refreshed both physically and mentally.
