All carbs aren??t equal

August 5th 2009, 13:01

A few months ago, thinking ahead to bathing-suit weather, I decided,
like most women on the planet, to lose five pounds. Intrigued by an ad
in the newspaper that promised a diet combining low-carb with natural
fat-burning foods, I sent away for the details and received a pack that
was, essentially, a more extreme version of the Atkins low-carbohydrate
diet. The diet was kickstarted by three days of protein-only foods and,
thereafter, only included foods with a very low glycaemic index (GI)
score, with three snacks a day composed entirely of protein.

However, like God, you could rest on the seventh day and eat whatever
you wanted, so long as it was followed by a protein-only day.
Although highly sceptical of an approach so heavily reliant on a single food group, I
decided to try it for a week. After all, my metabolic type slightly favours a high protein
consumption, so I eat a lot of protein anyway.
