Most low carb diet plans do not allow you to have certain foods in the first week or two on the plan, but you can gradually add those foods in later. So you may find yourself getting rid of foods you have right now that are not overly high in carbs, but are not yet allowed for the start of your low carb diet plan. Do not despair though... many of these foods will be added back in over the next few weeks. Next you will want to make a list of what you will be eating for at least the next week. Include meals, snacks and liquids, then create a shopping list for all of those items. Last but not least, you will go to the store and buy all of the foods on your list. Taking these steps will help you get started right with the low carb diet plan of your choosing, and it will help you stick to the proper guidelines and instructions for that plan as well.
Once you have finally made the decision to lose weight, and you have decided you want to try a low carb diet plan, the hard part is practically over. All you need to do now is simply get started. So lets look at what your first several days of a low carb diet plan might be like. Day one of your low carb diet plan should really start with some firm decisions. First you decide you will lose weight of course, and second you decide to go with a low carb diet plan to accomplish that weight loss. Next though, you need to choose which low carb diet plan you intend to follow. Three popular ones include the Atkins low carb diet plan, The South Beach low carb diet plan, and The Glycemic Index low carb diet plan.
Also, realize that your efforts for healthier living and eating should be a long term commitment, a change of lifestyle rather than a temporary diet. Adapting new habits that will allow you to reach and maintain your goal weight will help you feel better, younger, and more energetic for the rest of your life. When searching diet meal plans as a part of your overall weight loss plan, it is recommended to seek the help of a professional dietitian. Diet plans are different for different people; at least they should be. An individual having high blood pressure should have a different nutrition plan from one with diabetes, even though there may exist some points of commonality. So if you opt to use the services of a professional dietitian, it is advisable to make her aware of your medical history so that she can plan your diet menu accordingly. If you choose not to visit a dietitian, you can find diet plans online, but its still best to consult with a nutritionist or other related medical professional.
The next several days of your low carb diet plan might not be the best. You will experience sugar and starch cravings, you may be tired and lethargic, and you may have headaches or mild dizziness. These are all standard symptoms of starting a low carb diet plan, because your body is cleaning out all the extra starches, sugars and junk thats been stored up for awhile. You body is going through withdrawal from the lack of sugar that its used to, and these early days on your low carb diet plan are when having pre-cooked foods is most important, because you are at a higher risk of quitting when you are not feeling well.
