ARE YOU HUNGRY AND TIRED ALL THE TIME?

When I weighed 283 pounds, I was hungry all the time and tired all the time. I had not yet learned that CARBS make you HUNGRY and TIRED. It is the insulin response to carbs that makes you hungry, and it is insulin resistance that makes you tired. Both problems can be solved by balancing protein and carbs. No more hunger, energy shooting up day by day. What a turnaround.

Here is a thumbnail target for women:

5'7" and under = 25gm fat 90 gm protein, 90 carb gram daily
5'7" and over = 25gm fat, 100gm protein, 100gm carb daily

and for men:

5'7" and under 30gm fat, 100gm protein, 100gm carb daily
5'7" and over 30 gm fat, 125gm protein, 125gm carb daily

BE SURE TO ADD A PROTEIN BAR TO THESE TARGETS IF YOU EXERCISE 30 MINUTES.

ALSO, BE SURE TO TAKE YOUR OMEGA 3 SUPPLEMENTS IN ADDITION, 10GM FLAX OR FISH OIL OR COCONUT OIL.

Remember, mildly hungry, not starving. If you are starving, you are losing muscle. That means you are slowing your metabolism.

Viola! Hunger and tiredness disappear the 2nd day of this! YAY!!!!!
