As said earlier, I like to boost my body once a while with a cleanse. Being on a Keto Diet, the most natural thing would be an Egg fast. But honestly, I can not see eggs anymore... I have done some days here and there over the last months and I am really off the egg fasting which does not mean, that is bad thing!
Before Xmas I came across the zero carb challenge and honestly the results are similar to an egg fast and it feels so much better than being on eggs & cheese only. Beside this, it is known that a zero carb dieter can achieve significant results regarding weight loss, satiety, and better mental well-being. Personally, I would not do it longer then 14-days, as it is not kown what are the potential long-term adverse effects... So far, I had none, but we all like to stay on the safe side, right?
So lets break that down. This is my second round of zero carbs. First time I did 14-days and this time I will go for a good 9-days to clean & boost my metabolism! It is my spring cleaning and will include the following food groups:
Organic chicken breast w/o skin
Organic cheese ( personally I limit to 100g per day)
Healthy fat (butter, oils made from nuts)
Max 4 free range eggs per day
Water & black coffee & tea
Salt & pepper-
2 tsp heavy cream (optional)
Unsweetened, zero carb soya yoghurt max 500g per day
I know that technically soya is a bean and therefore should not be on the list, but as an almost vegetarian, I had to find a solution, instead of ending up with eating too much cheese. But, to leave it out, will not reduce my total carb intake, but it will for sure improve the results! So I will try to avoid it and only use it once a while, I hope....But we will see! Instead of opening the gate to all products between 0 and 1g (as this is the threshold to the don’t list), I decided upfront my total list, like this there is no mental negotiation going on and everything is cristal clear!
