Banting Basics: The what and why

I thought a good way to kick off the year was to review the basic principles of Banting and give a short explanation as to why they are important. Here are the ‘rules of the game’.  Play by them and you will taste victory.

Besides, which diet does one follow ….. and what are the rules of each game? The thing is,  you won’t know what is going to work best for you in terms of health and weight loss until you get going and try. So I want to give some idea of the baby steps you can take to move you closer towards better health, and a flatter tummy. Once you have the basics established, it will be much easier to take further steps as your knowledge grows, and you come to a better understanding about your own body and what food it needs to thrive.

The first step towards getting somewhere is to decide that you are not going to stay where you are. – John Pierpont Morgan Read the rest of this entry
