Beware Of ‘Coasting’ On Your Low-Carb Lifestyle

Filed under: Low-carb Tips — @ May 31, 2006

When you begin the low-carb lifestyle, everything is so exciting because the weight is pouring off of your body fast and furious, you start feeling better than you ever have in your entire life, and every aspect of your health improves. It really is a great feeling!

But then you head into the maintenance phase of the diet and the thrill begins to subside, you start going through the motions of low-carb living, and before long you find yourself simply “coasting” on your low-carb lifestyle.

It’s not an automatic thing that just naturally kicks in just because your weight is under control. It is and will always be a conscious effort to keep it that way and make improvements here and there so I can live that long, healthy life that I have always dreamed about.
