High-Carb vs. Low-Carb Confusion & Conflicting carbohydrate chaos

Listen



Note 1



Some uninformed individuals might accuse you of being on a low-carbohydrate diet—as if there’s something wrong with being on a low-carb diet to begin with. There isn’t. And you aren’t.

Note 2



Low-carb dieters usually keep their carb count in the ballpark of 50 grams per day. A typical Western diet contains around 300 grams of carbohydrate per day. A typical SANE day contains between 70 and 125 grams of carbs.

Note 3



Much of this carbohydrate confusion comes from the fact that 90 percent of what we find in the grocery store is a carbohydrate.

Step 3 of 6



SANE

The High-Nutrition Low-Confusion Lifestyle & Focus on quality of carbs, not quantity

Listen



Note 1



Forget about the high-carb, high-fat, and high-protein confusion and enjoy the foods that are delicious and give you the most of what you need and the least of what you don’t.

Note 2



Long-term fat loss and health are not about high-carb, high-fat, or high-protein diets. They’re about high-nutrition and low-confusion eating.

Note 3



Your goal is to eat the SANEst carbohydrates en masse just as you will eat the SANEst proteins and fats en masse. That doesn’t make you a low-carb dieter. That makes you healthy and slim.

Quiz

Remember these? Give them one more try now that you’ve spent a few minutes going SANE.

Q1

Going SANE focuses on eliminating carbohydrates. It is a low-carb diet.



True

Try again.

False

Correct! A SANE lifestyle’s #1 priority is eating as much of SANE carbs as possible. How’s that a low-carb diet? Being too full for inSANE starches and sweets doesn’t make you a low-carb dieter. It means you easily avoid the extremely high-carb diet which causes obesity, diabetes, and heart disease.

Q2

90% of what you see in your grocery store is a carbohydrate.



True

Correct! . If a carb is a food that gets more calories from carbs than from protein or fat, than basically everything other than seafood, eggs, meats, tofu, oils, low-fat and low-sugar dairy, nuts, seeds, low-sugar protein powders, and full-fat dairy are carbs. This is why people may incorrectly think you are on a low-carb diet.

False

Try again.

Q3

Carbohydrates are nonessential, so focus on carbs that carry along with them the most essential nutrients possible.



True

Correct! This is from the starch-loving USDA:  “The lower limit of dietary carbohydrate compatible with life apparently is zero, provided that adequate amounts of protein and fat are consumed.” There is no biological reason for a non-power athlete (football player, sprinter, etc.) to eat carbohydrate unless it helps us to consume required vitamins, minerals, fat, or protein. That’s why you focus on Non-Starchy Vegetables.

False

Try again.

Support

The number of people keeping you accountable is your #1 predictor of long-term success.

Sharing your SANEity enables you to enjoy instant accountability and support from your social networks. The science is 100% clear: The more you share your SANEity, the more success you will enjoy.
