One of the reasons many of us go on and off of
diets and exercise regimens is because we don’t
understand very much about how and why they are so
important. Frankly, most of the diet gurus give us
simple plans for low carb living, but they don’t tell
us much about how and why this revolutionary approach
works so well. “Low carb will change your metabolism,”
or, “Our body converts carbs into sugar, so we need to
cut down on carbs” are just not quite enough.
We need to learn more about how to implement these
new diet strategies in our daily lives to be successful.
So, Key #1 to building a Low Carb Lifestyle is
learning as much as you can. I recommend a little each
day, rather than reading one book or another cover to
cover. This way, you can better internalize what you are
learning. http://lowcarb-lifestyles.com contains literally
hundreds of valuable, short articles to help you learn in
small bites each day. Our members simply login and read one
or two pieces on something that they have a particular
interest in, need to understand or that simply catch their
interest. We recommend 20 mintes per day. That’s it.
Try this: Each day, set a little goal for yourself.
Some days, it will be obvious – “I’m feeling like
cheating” – in that case, set a goal to learn something
that helps you not cheat. Or, “I really don’t want to
exercise today” – in this case, set a goal to get motivated
to go out and move! If you face no special challenge on a
given day, set a goal proactivley like, “I want to learn
more about getting better tastes into my daily life.”
The main point is, just learn one or two little bits
every day. Do this day-in and day-out and you’ll be your own
expert and guru in no time! You’ll get extra bursts of
motivation from your newfound knowledge – that’s the idea,
of course. Daily learning, increased understanding deeper
insight every day will give you fresh inspiration and
motivation to stay the course. Try this seemingly simple
key out for one week; you’ll see what I mean!
