THE ALL CARB DIET (Burn Fat w/ Carbs)
What is the all-carb diet well before I get into the details I want to show you some of the results that I achieved in a month on this type of diet plan? Because the results kind of shocked me so I can almost a hundred percent guarantee that you’re going to learn something new if you watch this video to the end.
Let me start by showing you guys some videos. the first video is one that you might have seen before. This was me about 2-3 months ago right before I did a 5-day fast. This second video is taken a month after the first video directly after my 5 day fast. And this video was taken today after eating a diet primarily consisting of carbohydrates for the last month. Like I’m talking about probably over 80% of my diet has been carbs. Isn’t that interesting. I find it very interesting because we’re all led to believe things like if you fast or if you don’t eat enough protein you’re going to lose all your muscle mass. But that didn’t happen I maintained the majority of my muscle. In fact for a cut Id say I did a very good job maintaining muscle mass. Even though of course I did lose some muscle Whenever I’ve cut in the past with low carb high protein diets I would still lose some muscle mass. And that applies to everyone unless you’re on steroids you’re going to have a really hard time maintaining all your muscle mass while cutting, the point is to maintain as much of it as you can which I think I did just fine. The energy from the glucose from the carbohydrates in combination with heavy weight training maintained and spared my muscle mass. The other myth we’re led to believe is that carbs are bad for you or that you need to do a low-carb diet such as Atkins Keto paleo or one of the other low-carb diets in order to lose weight burn fat and get shredded. You’ll never get shredded eating a high carb diet right? Totally wrong. I’ve pretty much only been eating carbs for the last month to actually test out on myself if good sources of carbs make you fatter. And even though I thought I was going to lose muscle and I thought I was gonna get fatter instead my body fat dropped way down and my muscles felt fuller…
Let’s go over to the kitchen so I can show you exactly what I was eating. Obviously I was still eating healthy carbs like brown rice. Ezekiel cereal was another healthy carb that I would eat regularly. As well as oatmeal. I had one major criteria for choosing my carb sources and that was if it was made from single ingredient sources. I’ve talked about single-ingredient foods for a while now but I feel like some people are still confused. With oatmeal, it’s really easy to tell that this is, a single ingredient food. But with something like Ezekiel cereal it’s a little harder to tell because the ingredients are a lot longer.
However if you look closely at the ingredient list you’ll see that they’re all natural sources of carbohydrates and they’re all themselves single ingredients. another carb source that I would have a lot of were bananas sometimes up to three or four a day. Rice cakes were also part of my diet as a snack. also I was having a lot of puffed rice cereal. this cereal is made out of only one ingredient and that ingredient is puffed whole grain brown rice. And I would have that cereal with almond cashew milk not the 25 calorie one or the 60 calorie one but the full out 80 calorie high carb one. And I’ll admit the 25 calorie one would be better but regardless I would have sometimes two to three bowls of this cereal at night before bed and still continued cutting. Also I would have a whole bunch of different kinds of pasta including Ezekiel pasta which might look like it has multiple ingredients but really it’s still a single ingredient food.
I would have regular whole wheat pasta with only one ingredient. And I would also have high protein black bean mung bean and edamame pasta. And even though these are pretty high in protein you can clearly see the majority of my diet was coming from carbs. i would freely add pasta sauce as well but once again it’s very important which sauce you choose. Almost all of them have added sugar, you want to get the one with single ingredients and you might have to do a little bit of searching at your supermarket to find it. I was also having faster digesting carbs like potatoes baked in olive oil. And then for my snack cravings I would have things like dark Russet chips.
