So you’ve heard about banting being the latest diet trend and you are eager to know how it all works and what it is all about? Well, you have come to the right place my friend because I am going to tell you all about it 😉
I am going to skip the whole history lesson and the roots of the story and just tell you the part that I think you want to hear okay? Should you wish to go into the detail, you can purchase this lovely book called, “The Real Meal Revolution” where you can find everything you need to know about the topic.
Banting is a lifestyle where eating fat is your main source of fuel and carbohydrates are minimal – Also known as eating in the complete opposite way that you have been taught to eat for the bulk of your life!
Banting starves the body of carbs & sugar which is currently its source of fuel and then brings us into a state of ketosis. What this state of ketosis means is that the body now has to find another source of fuel and it then turns to our fat stores (which in my case is overloaded with stock). I can literally go for ages without buying groceries if my body had to feed off this lol. Katching! Money saved!
The banting proportions are split into 3, namely fat, protein and carbohydrates. Fat being the bulk of the meal, protein being considerably less and carbs even less.
Professor Tim Noakes mentions that, fat does not make you fat and as weird as that may have sounded a few years back, the evidence does indeed speak for itself my good people. I am very happy to say that from everything I have tried, this is by far the best and it works! No shakes, no pills, no starving and the food tastes great. Now as a reader, I become extremely sceptical when I read that sentence “it really works” lol because it usually doesn’t work when I try it. I have, however, seen family members, colleagues and friends melt away with banting. I have also personally seen numbers on the scale that I have not seen since being a teenager and it is an incredible feeling. Even things like my sinus and chronic headaches have disappeared which is an absolute bonus.
Try it, it will be one of the best decisions you have ever made.
