Forget Counting Calories To Lose Weight - Count These Critical Items Instead

Wanna Lose Weight?

Counting calories just doesn't work because all calories are NOT created equal.

Instead, use the following 3 nutritional tips I've discovered in my search for the best eating plan (not a diet, a forever eating plan).

  1. Lower your sugar intake to 25 grams or less per day. This is not as easy as it sounds: sugar appears in just about every processed food. Pay attention to the sugar content of everything you eat.
  2. Lower your carb intake to only good carbs (no white rice, enriched wheat); six servings for a total of 120 grams per day. In fact, you may benefit from gluten-free food, especially if you have even a slight wheat allergy. Just be wary of sugar-laden gluten-free food.
  3. Increase your fiber consumption to 25 grams per day for women and 35 per day for men (less for adults over 50). Adding a fiber supplement low in sugar and without artificial sweeteners gives you a good start to reaching the daily fiber target.
The first two items will automatically help you lose at least 20 pounds in the first month. See to get a free ebook outlining the low sugar/low carb eating plan..

The increased fiber consumption aids digestion, conquers constipation, lowers blood sugar, and also helps you lose weight. This last item I recently discovered after suffering from a common lower bowel dysfunction. I wish I had started this one many years ago.

  1. You are so right about this! I'm more prone to zone in on the sugar & carb content on nutrition label before reading the calories.
