Is anyone else on a high carb, low fat, low protein plant based diet? Anyone?? Well I know it sounds insane and it feels so wrong because it goes against everything we hear about weight loss and nutrition, but according to a whole lot of people it works.
I spend my snow day working out, cleaning up, and researching about this high carb vegan diet. I even commented on one of High Carb Hannah’s posts on instagram and then got into a long conversation with a girl who has been eating this way and it’s been a big success. I asked her all of my questions and she told me to try it for 2 weeks and see what I think. She even shared her MyFitnessPal with me for ideas! Thanks! So the idea is to eat 80/10/10 carbs/protein/fat. It’s no oil, low sodium, and no processed foods, but high in healthy carbs. Did you know potatoes are a complete protein? Apparently the oil is keeping people from losing because it’s hard for your body to process and this low fat diet keeps people satisfied, happy, full, and provides slow and steady weight loss. It’s a healthy lifestyle that provides whole plant based nutrition so you’re getting everything you need each day without feeling deprived. You’re not supposed to count calories, but just eat until you are full and then stop. I’m pretty nervous to try this out because it literally goes against what everyone thinks about carbs, but I’m going to eat these healthy carbs, veggies, beans, lentils, peas and fruit and see if it really works!
I got this recipe off Pinterest and it’s one that I saw High Carb Hannah making on her Youtube channel. It was pretty filling and tasty! It was only a few ingredients and super fast to make. If you’re skeptical, check out her channel on Youtube for more information.
