Have you heard of Noom lately?

I know it's all over the place, on the radio, on TV, and seeming everywhere you look.  Can Noon help you lose weight? Sure it can but it costs about $59 per month.

The 8 Week Diet only costs $39 one time and it can help you lose weigh​t.

Trying to decide which weight loss program to go with can really be frustrating.

Q: What can I eat on ​The 8 Week Diet?

A:  There are plenty of great choices, recipes, and combinations of low carb meals and foods. Here are some ideas of things that are perfectly fine.

  • Turkey, chicken, red meat, ham, sausage, bacon, organ meat and exotic fowl​
  • Fish and seafood​
  • Eggs​
  • All non-starchy vegetables, including, leafy greens, onions, tomatoes, peppers, mushrooms, olives, etc.​
  • Butter, heavy cream, full fat sour cream and salad dressings (check labels for carb count)​
  • Whole full fat unprocessed cheeses, including, cheddar gouda, mozzarella, parmesan and blue cheese in moderation
  • Almonds, walnuts, peanuts, nut butters, sunflower seeds, flaxseeds, pumpkin seeds, and chia seeds in moderation
  • Extra virgin olive oil, coconut oil and avocado oil
  • Avocados (whole or guacamole made from fresh whole avocados)
  • Salt, herbs and spices
  • No carb sauces like some hot sauce brands, and soy sauce, check labels.
  • Berries in moderation
  • Drinks: water, unsweetened tea, unsweetened coffee, club soda, no-calorie flavored seltzers, diet soda (be cautious as artificial sweeteners can affect low carb weight loss), herbal tea without added barley or fruit sugars
     
    ​Q: What carbs are not allowed?

A: ​The 8 Week Diet allows the majority of carb intake to be limited to non-starchy vegetables, and small amounts of cheese and full fat dairy, like sour cream and heavy whipping cream.  

No refined sugar, sweets, fruit, rice, pasta, bread, grains, starches, starchy vegetables, flour, and products made with it, or beans are allowed, especially initially in order to trigger ketosis.  

Slow integration of some carb rich foods, like nuts, berries, and even beans can take place as you progress through the diet and reach your goals and how much and what carbs you can have depends on your individual weight loss progress and how those carbs effect it. Refined sugar is never allowed.  

Q: How many carbs can I eat?

A: This really depends on the particular plan. The strictest recommendation is 20 grams or less, as is the case with the Ketogenic diet. Overall, 50 grams or less daily is recommended.  

Additionally, physical activity matters, meaning the more active you are, the more carbs you can eat,  but keep in mind the carb sources should still be vegetables, nuts, berries and possibly beans in moderation. If you are thrown out of ketosis or weight loss stalls, then carb intake will have to be altered.  

Q: Do I have to count calories?

A: Low carb diets advocate eating to satisfaction, and there is no need to count calories. When you eliminate unhealthy carbs from your diet, you also get rid of out of control cravings, stabilize blood sugar and consequently the appetite, and research has shown that reducing carbohydrates and replacing them with protein and healthy fats results in reducing overall calorie consumption naturally and without starvation.  

Many people report having to remember to eat by a clock because they simply do not feel out of control hunger as they did before ​eating how we teach you to eat in The 8 Week Diet manual.
