Happy Hormones Reality: You can and should enjoy regular consumption of slow, nutrient-dense carbs to have sustainable weight loss and improved emotional state.
You won’t be able to stick to a ‘diet’ when you are always hungry- sooner or later you’re going to cave in. The latest research in neuroscience (how the brain works) confirms what I know as an experienced Holistic Nutritionist- willpower is not the way- and it’s seriously no fun!
Many low-carb diet programs like Atkins, South Beach and Ketogenic all have one major fault in common- they’re just WAY too freaking hard to stick to. Bonus is you cheat or come off the diet, the weight comes back like gangbusters.
In my clinical experience, women on long-term low-carb diets end up fatter, more tired and moodier than when they began. They also ginger more often and feel more food guilt than women who eat an estrogen-balancing, delicious, real-food diet every single day.
