Mistakes When Cutting Carbs For Weight Loss

I Went Low-Carb For 3 Weeks, and These 3 Mistakes Led to Weight Gain

Mistakes When Cutting Carbs For Weight Loss

Over the Summer, when my bloating issues got out of control, both a naturopath and an osteopath suggested I give up sugar, fruit, and flour for one week: no white sugar, no natural sugars like maple syrup, agave, honey or stevia, no artificial sweeteners, no fresh or dried fruit, and no flour. Sugar cravings hit me hard, but by then end of the seven days, my bloating was completely gone.

I decided to keep going and took it a step further, going low-carb and limiting all grains and high-carb veggies like potatoes and corn. Honestly, I wanted to see what all the hype was about going low-carb, and to see if it'd help with my sugar cravings, since those were pretty high still, even though I ditched fruit, sugar, and flour.

Although my belly was less puffy and leaner, I was shocked when I stepped on the scale. I had gained weight by the end of those 21 days. And after some investigating, I know the reason why and will share what I discovered.
