Body Fat Smart Carbohydrates – Yes, They Do Exist!

"Carbohydrates To Lower Body Fat"As much as I’m a protein gal at heart and don’t by any stretch of the imagination eat a diet high in carbohydrates, there are times I look around in restaurants – or even while eating dinner with my super-carb-tolerant husband – and just long for some good old comfort carbs. It’s not as though I necessarily long to down a big bowl of simple sugars or any of the really refined carbohydrates really, but I do sometimes wonder what life would be like if I actually believed all the rubbish about carbs being an ideal source of energy.

you don’t ‘need’ carbohydrates for energy

Of course unfortunately I know it’s just not true; the vast majority of us (the experts I listen to believe around 75%) just don’t need carbs for energy and when we do consume more than we can tolerate – especially in the form of refined carbohydrates – we not only mis-manage our blood sugar but can even cause increased body fat and eventually serious health problems such as diabetes.

The truth is that when all is said and done even those oh-so-(NOT)-good-for-you whole grains and complex carbohydrates break down into little more than simple sugars in your body.

the good (make that great!) news on smart carbohydrates

Of course it’s not all doom and gloom 🙂 Quite the opposite in fact! If you’re smart about it then you can include carbs in your diet regularly and even positively impact your body fat as well as your health.

I’m not talking so much about vegetables here (although people do often seem to forget they are also carbs) – your vegies are a great source of nutrition and should be a daily food choice, but what this post is really about is which of the complex carbs and even which of the starches you can ‘get away with’.

carbohydrates I like to indulge in on occasion!

  • Gluten free breads
  • Low GI fruits: berries (all forms, fresh or frozen) and stone fruits (seasonally) are very smart choices when it comes to low-sugar fruits. Fructose is not your friend when it comes to fat loss, so if you are going to include fruits these would be the best choices.
  • Home-made buckwheat pancakes (buckwheat is a gluten-free whole grain)
  • Wild or brown rice (see below for a recipe or make cinnamon rice pudding with organic full-fat cream, lemon zest, cinnamon, water, vanilla and some stevia)
  • Quinoa, if soaked overnight and then drained. Use it to make porridge, or as a salad base where others might use pasta
  • Legumes (also soaked; preferably not tinned): try this delicious recipe for Cajun Red Beans and Rice
  • Cereals are usually a no-no, but not if you’re smart about it: try gluten-free oats made into chocolate porridge (O.M.G)
  • Chocolate cake done the healthy way! Actually this recipe is pretty low in carbs, but cake is definitely one of the foods we tend to resist so I wanted to show you that you don’t have to live a cake-free life! It does contain Agave though, which essentially is no better than table sugar so this one is more of a treat. A pretty smart treat 🙂
  • Garlic sweet potato or pumpkin mash: I like to add some organic cream and butter, Himalayan salt, and plenty of garlic. These healthy starches are also a great source of dietary fiber.

Hmmm – I could go on and on here I think, but I’m starting to get a real hunger coming on so best to stop now! For now, just be sure to get that shopping list out girls! Your next treat meal is just around the corner 🙂

Remember –

Life is Now. Press Play!

PS.

I’m excited to announce my Flow-Led Millionaire Private Client Mastermind Days are back, happening this August (PM me for full deets!) 

Warning! This Mastermind will require you to get TF over your hang-ups around:

* Automated income

* Being seen more, and more boldly

* Adding layers upon layers upon layers of more SELLING

* Ruthless repurposing and re-selling

* Structure, systems, process

* Building a cash machine which pays you on repeat regardless of whether YOU are grinding your fingers to the bone to get it working!

Requirements:

You have an existing business which makes money, delivers a fabulous product or service (or multiple of!) which helps people, you know who you are and who you’re here to serve (while always welcoming deeper clarity!), and you have a proven track record for getting results to those people … even if it’s on a scale, so far, which, frankly, you consider outrageous. Since you know you’re here to do insanely big work in the world!

Oh, speaking of which – you know you’re here to do insanely big work in the world! And you’re ready to put the wheels on that NOW, and see your revenue – your growth of soulmate audience – your soul-led result-gettin’ systems – and all in all your own badassery – explode, stat!

You’re not afraid of doing the damn work (duh),

but you also know that there’s a simpler way, a more flow way, a more YOU way.

And you’re ready to get down to the nitty gritty of that now, and then roll it out like the take no prisoners mofo you are.

All with me – secret counsel to the worlds most elite game-changers, leaders, and revolutionaries – supporting you to know exactly what to do,

and exactly how to do it,

so you make MORE money,

reach MORE (of the right people),

the YOU way,

having more fun and flow than you ever dreamed possible,

and finally knowing you’re all in on you,

Now!

What you get out of this time together is simple:

* Identified opportunities for money-makin’ – minimum 3, up to 10+ (this is normal in these conversations with me)

* Specific to you simple soulmate audience growth strategy, which you can roll out right away, and will often involve only ‘tweaks’ rather than having to DO anything dramatically extra

* Confidence and inner tools as well as practical steps for improving / adding to / setting up (depending where you’re at) your automated income / funnels 

* Personalised (to your personality / style / lifestyle / skillset) action plan for implementing

* Tweaks you can add in right away to increase sales on existing processes

* Daily / weekly ‘hustle flow plan’ individualised to you

All in all here’s what it comes down to:

>>> You will walk out with a complete action plan tailored to your business, very detailed and also very SIMPLE, with also a complete understanding of what you need to do and HOW to do it, to take you to the next major income level, and beyond.

This will include your next three offers (MINIMUM), up-sells, or funnel ad-ins, FULLY CREATED IN THE TIME TOGETHER!

Plus:

1:1 follow on support to help you implement and follow through.

I love doing this INTENSIVE deep dive work where we pull everything apart all at once, and then nail down the EXACT action steps for each person to take to get more paying customers and clients, who are soul-aligned, coming in NOW, who are also buying more things, because you’ve got all your damn shit in place!

This immersive day together is limited to 5-7 people per event. 

If this is speaking to you PM me here to apply / for more info!
