There’s a really great way you can quickly lose body fat, and it’s more simple than what you’re currently doing. No, I’m not going to tell you to cut calories or starve yourself. That doesn’t actually work in the long term, because once you start eating the calories again, you put the weight back on. [...]
We all need them, or at least we all want them. We don’t realize how badly we want them until we can’t have one when we want it. Then when we get it, we usually feel terrible afterwards. I’m talking about cheat days, and I’ve had several questions come up about them. Why even have [...]
On the slow-carb diet, one thing you’re going to eat more of than you probably ever have before is vegetables. It seems really obvious, but a lot of people just don’t get it. To lose weight, they eat less calories, and that – to them means smaller portions of bread, fats, and sugars. But really, [...]

The weekend’s almost here, which means it’s the perfect time to fool-proof your ability to stick to the plan next week. There’s one way that’s almost guaranteed to help get you results every time. In this post, I’ll show you what that is and how you can easily integrate it into your new lifestyle.
How does your kitchen match up to the needs of a slow-carb diet?
Here at The Slow Carb Foodie, we’re committed to helping you become the best slow-carb chef you can be. Part of becoming that chef is working with the right tools. Today I’m continuing my series on building the perfect kitchen by talking about the different tools you’ll need.
You might have a lot of them, but I bet there are a couple pieces you don’t have. The idea is not to have a ton of gadgets (MED principles still apply in your kitchen) but to have a collection of the best things for your purposes.
This short list of tools will allow you to make a good 90% of everything you’ll see on this site or find in any cookbook.
Eggs: roughly 70 of the most awesome calories you can eat. Packed with healthy protein and fat, they’re a really easy way to get the 20g Tim recommends in the morning.

Here’s the thing, though: you don’t have to be a fancy chef to take something ordinary and make it exquisite. All you need are the right tools. The star of any “4 hour kitchen”, in my opinion, is going to be your spice rack (link to Amazon). Here’s the down low on the ones I think you need immediately.
