Five Years Later And Low-Carb Still Keeping Me Fit And Healthy

Filed under: Health — @ January 2, 2009

I can hardly remember that 410-pound man I used to be before 2004

Low-carb is just not sustainable over the long-term. Cutting out an entire food group like that will leave you malnourished and unhealthy. You’ll get so bored eating meat, eggs, and cheese every single day that you will go out and binge on sugar and carbs as a rebellious act. (And my personal favorite) When you add back in the carbohydrates to your diet again, you’ll put the weight back on faster than you took it off (assuming you are going to start eating lots of carbs again).

You know, looking at some of those excuses for NOT going on a low-carb diet, they can seem logical and even somewhat reasonable based on the basic knowledge most people have about weight loss. After all, it’s good to have balance in your diet with a variety of foods that keeps things interesting enough that you’ll want to eat that way for the rest of your life, right? Well, I’m here to testify today that livin’ la vida low-carb is all of that and more for me.

Today, January 1, 2009 marks my 5-year anniversary being on the low-carb lifestyle. Little did I know back in 2004 when I began this amazing journey to better health with the Atkins diet after reading Dr. Atkins’ New Diet Revolution just how much my life would change physically with my weight and health as well as many other areas of my life, including my new career as a full-time low-carb blogger, podcaster, YouTuber, and more!
