1:07 am - Enjoying Low Carb Diet Benefits

After awhile, we give up and collapse in total fatigue, aggravation, and dissatisfaction - - with the same weight we originally started out with. When following a low carb diet, the results will be felt within a couple of weeks if the instructions are followed as close as possible. Low carb diet benefits are the result of less hard work than other diets, yet with better results and a fuller stomach.

Without Trying, A Diet Can Be Successful

A successful diet is one that allows you to loose weight - - easily, successfully, and with the least amount of change in your present life - - which is achieved by low carb diet benefits. Every diet is an individual thing, as each person wants something different to make their diet a success. The low carb diet offers something for everyone, while allowing them to make their own decisions about their future.

Diabetics who are on a low carb diet benefit from it by keeping their insulin levels down, as well as weight and hunger pains. The daily amounts of carbohydrates that are consumed on a daily basis will affect the blood glucose levels - - having an immediate effect on the levels because they are broken down into glucose (sugar) early in the digestion process. By following the recommended amount of carb, with some protein and fat at a meal, the levels will stay down and insulin may not be needed. The body is forced to use the available glucose and fat due to the decreased consumption of carbs, resulting in weight loss.

Diet and Exercise Go Hand-in-Hand

The person who tries to lose weight without exercise will not achieve it as well, as quick, or with the same results. One of the low carb diet benefits is fitting the exercise you want into your diet regime, about half an hour for three times a week. The burning off fat and energy is just as important as the diet's lowering of carbohydrate intake, and together they speed up the weight loss as compared to one at a time.

Tips That Are Helpful to Low Carb Dieters

Three important things need to be taken into consideration to obtain the low carb diet benefits, and should be utilized throughout your life. The first one is to choose healthy saturated fats over unhealthy fats if you need to consider the intake of fats. Plant fats are healthy fats if they have not been hydrogenated - - which is more harmful than not, but it does make the fat more solid when warm or at room temperature. Some samples of plant fats would be nuts, olives, or avocados. The types of oils that are better than animal source fats are that from olives, canola, or peanuts. Excess animal fats are unhealthy and lead to many diseases, which makes the plant fat more attractive for health reasons.

Fruits and vegetables are always good for dieters, especially adding to low carb diet benefits. Even though they may be restricting at the beginning of the low carb diet, they are always brought back in limited amounts. They are known to lower diseases such as heart disease, cancer, and obesity.

I was eating a huge bowl of chicken flavored rice a roni, and decided to see who else has rice a roni in their interests. And I found this community and ultimatley joined. But no one has talked since November of 04. There was a hair in my rice a roni just now, which almost made me vomit. :< But, Hello!

current mood: full & kinda sickish

That's my favorite kind of rice a roni. Broccoli and Cheese. With the Au Gratin stuff. The Four cheese is pretty good too, but kinda salty. Anyone have any recommendations? This is my first post here :)

7:22 pm - rice stupidity.

I meant to fix some rice today for lunch to go with my chicken. Everything went fine until I had to boil it. I made the mistake of leaving the room to come in here and check my e-mail. Well, I was in here a few minutes too long... the rice was completely burned. Bah. Damn it. I miss my rice.

current mood: annoyed

10:16 am - a quandary.

Is it crazy to want Rice-a-Roni for breakfast? It's 10 am here, but that's early for me, thus it would be my breakfast. I started this damned community, and I haven't even eaten the stuff in a week or so! Sheesh! :)

current mood: giggly

12:15 am - Rice a Roni in record time!

I haven't had time to edit this community and add user info... it's kind of strange not knowing who posted what from the main page! :P~

Two nights ago, I cooked my rice in 12 minutes flat! Yum!

Any broccoli au gratin lovers (like myself!) out there, here's a tip if you like a really creamy sauce (again, like me!)... instead of using all water, substitute maybe 1/2 cup or so of milk when mixing the sauce... oh my god, it's delicious! It sounds kinda gross, I know... but it makes that stuff taste pretty damned good! ^_^

My favorite has to be Chicken. I also like the Spanish kind.

I just wish it didn't take 17 minutes to cook. I also wish they made it in single serving sizes.

You gottal love the San Fransisco treat.
