Why Eating Carbs can Help Boost your Metabolism Chris Powell
Dr. Oz: The second big idea to break a carb addiction is to have bread and pasta every other day. I’m going to say it again, I will want you Chris says it works with his clients, to have bread, and some pasta and some carbs every other day. Please explain why you would take this dramatic change to sleep.
Chris: Sure, how many millions people out there has tried and failed, tried and failed on a diet? The biggest thing that I have found that I’m up against is the emotional and psychological need these carvings for this comfort foods. So, if you can’t beat them why don’t you join them and be really smart about it; so we can actually create a cool little psycho to lose fat while you are still eating carbs, those comfort foods. It almost sounds too good to be true, but it really does work this way.
Dr. Oz: Actually it gets better it’s only going to work if we do it the right way, take us through a typical week by which you may actually use carbs as an …instead of your enemy.
Chris: Absolutely, right here we are looking at the basic week here. Start off on Monday with a good clean low carb day, this is going to be our fat burning day right here, because you come off the weekend, everyone is a Monday dieter. Most people are great with their diets on Monday, so we are going to go low carb burning fat on these days. On Tuesday, you are going to be I’m totally over this diet thing. I really want a bagel for breakfast right; well guess what you can have that beadle for breakfast. You totally can, I’m going to allow you to reward yourself every other day on this diet. If you can’t have it today you can always have it tomorrow. So, Monday you have eaten clean, you did great you burn a lot of fat, Tuesday you want to start off with that bagel, fantastic.
Dr. Oz: I know she was going to rush the stage with her my friends, it’s still safe though, let that almond butter cake in you got twenty minutes.
Dr. Oz: I have noticed almond butter here also but an apple.
Chris: Yes absolutely, it is a beautiful healthy whole natural carbohydrate; it’s high in fiber as well. So, we go from these low carb burning day to a higher carb day which is going to help boost your metabolism and then you are feeling good, you have your reward food. On Wednesday we are going to drop you right back into a low carb fat burning day. Come the next day, here comes Thursday, pizza.
Dr. Oz: It’s very rare on this show that you will see pizza on the set, that’s a pizza.
Chris: Absolutely so, once again here comes a high carb metabolic boosting day.
Dr. Oz: One meal right?
Chris: One meal, reward yourself, indulge for that one meal, get that taste or whatever it is that you are looking for and then surround yourself. Your other meals for the day should be, real whole natural carbohydrates, all the good ones are better… We are back down again on Friday, right back down into low carb fat burning day. Then you want pancake for the kids on Saturday? How about it? It’s totally okay, boost your metabolisms on these days and then of course here you are; you want to do an Italian lunch with the family, you want some pasta and spaghetti meatballs and big reward meal, spike your metabolism through the roof.
Dr. Oz: Can Sunday, be the whole day of cheating?
Chris: I recommend against it, it really depends on who you are, if cheating, especially if sometimes it can be a slippery slope for a lot people. You will also notice that all of these meals when I mentioned them they were never dinner because; anytime you are eating after 7 you start to reward yourself, that can be a very slippery slope and before you know it you are in that red zone from 7 0’ clock until you go to bed.
