There’s no doubt about it…

You can get in great shape, and take care of your health like we know we all should with a much simpler way.

Controlling your carbs can have impressive results.  And when you are following the simple PVF meal guide as I give in the 28-Day Challenge and in the #myfitbody community, all the members have been raving about the “All You Can Eat” Carb list.  So I wanted to share it with you now.

The truth is…

You shouldn’t be cutting your carbs out harshly or for to long, and when you do control your carbs it has been shown to cause a significant reduction in hunger levels.

This tends to lead to “automatic” weight loss, without the need for calorie counting.  And if you’ve watched my videos I have here or listened to the podcasts, you know I don’t want you counting calories.

At least 23 studies have shown that low-carb diets generally cause more weight loss than low-fat diets, sometimes up to 2-3 times more.

Cutting carbs can also have numerous other benefits for metabolic health.

This includes a reduction in blood sugar, blood pressure and triglycerides, higher HDL (the “good”) cholesterol, and others.

Fortunately, eating low-carb does NOT have to be complicated.

Just base your diet around real foods that are low in carbs and you will lose weight and improve your health.

This starts with the vegetables that nourishes your body with the nutrients, vitamins, phytochemicals, fibre and more that it needs.

This is a list of quick and easy go to vegetables that fits in perfectly when following a simple meal guide:
