Hey Guys! Happy Friday!! I’m not the kind of person who preaches one diet over another. We are all different!
However, I have been finding that eating a mostly (emphasis on mostly) Keto diet has completely changed my weight loss and my body. I’m no longer bloated, I no longer have cravings, and I’m losing consistently.

A lot of the science behind eating the slow carb diet in the 4 Hour Body Diet can be overwhelming, but I saw this nice little infographic (source: http://www.foodtechconnect.com/2012/01/26/infographic-of-the-week-carbs-are-killing-you/) really breaking it down in a meaningful, understandable way. Check it out! It turns out that Atkins was right. Those of us who thought his diet was dangerous and “not healthy” years ago were wrong wrong wrong. Just eating less and exercising isn’t helpful to a lot of us who have a really tough time managing our weight: significantly reducing carbs in our diet does!
The carbs do not “kill” you, as the title suggests. If it should be accurate, it should say that HIGH-CARB DIETS ARE MAKING YOU FAT which can’t get anymore obvious or clear. DO NOT spread misinformation.
Guys, you learn this in high school. In MIDDLE school. NEITHER CARBS, NOR FATS, WILL LEAD TO DEATH OVER TIME. QUITE SIMPLY, the LACK OF CONTROL along with an IMBALANCED DIET will.
As an aspiring healthcare provider/scientist, I’d say that these kinds of diets are okay in the short-term. (Just as compensation by the heart is good for the short-term—your heart beats faster when you’re lacking blood to attempt to serve oxygen to the tissues and brain, however, long-term tachycardia (fast heart rate) proves fatal, leading to shock if blood is not efficient in the long run.)
Yes, you’re young, and if you’re active enough you can have a lot of fats in your diet. HOWEVER, the reason for the anti-fat campaign in the early 90’s was due to the fact that America’s greatest drive for death is HEART DISEASE. And there are several factors that can contribute to heart disease, namely obesity, smoking, and being sedentary. But consider this: heart disease, a completely preventable condition that often leads to death and other disease, is more common to die from than natural death in the US.
High fat and low-carb lead you to weight-loss. However, 0 CARB and HIGH FAT diets need to be readjusted. You have to consider your arteries and arterioles—they are VERY small! And the walls of those vessels are prone to getting those little fat particles you’re ingesting stuck to them. Raise your HR every day. Have a balanced diet, and if you must increase your activity/almost starve yourself for your weight loss, do it for the short-term. Any longer to a lifetime and I would recommend psychological consultation.
So NO. Fat doesn’t make you as fat, as fast as carbs do, but an imbalanced diet high in fat will lead to clogged arteries very easily starting from your TWENTIES. The fittest people I know eat high carb because they’re highly active. Also, consider other countries where carbs are not deemed the devil where obesity is NOT an issue. Don’t feed into this pseudoscience.
Melt the coconut oil, either in the microwave or on a candle warmer or in a warm oven. Add the vanilla drops (or agave) and stir. Add the cocoa, then add 3 tablespoons water only if you used vanilla drops. Stir stir stir! Stir until it gets thick like Artisana Cacao Bliss.
