Give Up Carbs

In this week's challenge you must Give Up Carbs. Simple carbs, such as those found in cookies, candy and chips, are the king and queen of the food world. They'll give you a quick thrill - but you know they're bad for you, and you're guaranteed to feel feel a bit guilty afterwards. And yet we still can't break our addiction to them. Worse, even if you are careful about intake, you might be stunned to realize how much you're actually eating. There are almost as many carbs in a single chocolate chip cookie as there are in a bowl of oatmeal!

When you give up carbs you start...

  • Burning fat.
  • You feel less hungry
  • Your belly gets flatter
  • You cut your risks for diabetes
  • Your muscles get stronger
  • You feel more energized
  • Triglycerides tend to go way down
  • Increased levels of HDL "The Good" Cholesterol
  • Blood Pressure tends to go down
  • Reduced risk of metabolic syndrome and heart disease
