14-Day No-Carb Diet

Perhaps the most effective diet for me in losing weight is the no-carb diet. Nope, it is not low-carb diet, but no-carb diet. And no sugar, too.

Waaaa….I was not able to complete the whole two weeks. I just couldn’t take it anymore. But I did it for 10 days and lost 11 lbs. That was really good. I was really slender….then I got pregnant.

Now I want to do it again. But it is very difficult. And I can’t control myself. Tsk. tsk.

Anyway, what I ate mostly was eggs, lettuce, cucumber, tomatoes, bean sprouts, and tofu. No rice, bread, sweets, and even fruits. My beverages were all sugar-free. When I had a craving for sweets, I chewed on sugar-free gum that had watermelon flavor. That was tough but I lost the weight that I needed.

At the end of 10 days, I was happy and rewarded myself with a glass of strawberry milk shake from McDonalds.

I was able to maintain that weight at 100 lbs. But then I got pregnant. And now, I am just super duper overweight at 125 lbs. But I can no longer reason out that it was because of pregnancy. I was a lot thinner a few months after giving birth. I went down to 105 lbs. already but then I gained 20 lbs. Too bad.

Now I want to do the no-carb diet again. Do I still have the will power? Let us wait and see.

  1. Hey,

    I’m reading some of your posts. And how you reward yourself with food doesn’t help. I think the reward system may help except if it’s with food.

    Associating accomplishing your goal and success with food starts a “negative” cycle. Remember there is a psychology to weight loss.

    The way you’re going about this is unfortunately way off, and quite frankly unhealthy. You will never permanently lose weight by doing small stints of restricting yourself. I’m in the field of health and nutrition and while the “no carb” diet may be effective quickly, you will end up gaining more weight when you arent on the diet.

    Second, there really is no such thing as a “no carb” diet. Even your eggs, cucumbers and lettuce have 1 to 2g of carbohydrates. In addition, don’t think you’re in the clear of sugars just because it says “sugar free”. There are chemicals in sugar replacements (i.e. Sucralose, Splenda, Saccharin) called alcohol sugars; that cause your body to retain water weight, and also send signals to your brain that trigger cravings for more junk food.

    What you need to realize is that your body is like an engine; when you fill it up with artificial substances, you’r clogging the passage ways and you aren’t aware of the long-term effects that it will have on your body. Eat a clean diet consisting of mainly fruits, veggies, nuts, legumes and lean meats; avoid starchy foods and sweets and EXERCISE. You’ll be amazed with your results!

    **Lesson**

    Always do your research before going on a diet.
