Your no carb diet has you feeling great about your bikini bod just in time for summer. Then grilling season starts and the endless array of burgers and hotdogs threatens to undo all of your hard work. First, stay strong and remember that research supports your carb-free lifestyle. A recent study from the Friedman School of Nutrition Science & Policy at Tufts University further backs it up. The study’s senior author and dean of the Friedman School, Dariush Mozaffarian, M.D., Dr.P.H. reports, “Our findings suggest we should not only emphasize specific protein-rich foods like fish, nuts, and yogurt to prevent weight gain, but also focus on avoiding refined grains, starches, and sugars in order to maximize the benefits of these healthful protein-rich foods, create new benefits for other foods like eggs and cheese, and reduce the weight gain associated with meats.”
Now push that image of a summer spent sitting on the sidelines with your fork and knife, eating boring burgers served on a bed of lettuce with all their fixings perched on top out of your head. There’s no reason for you to suffer for your paleo, no carb diet with all of the delectable bunless options, you just need to get creative with your grilling and think outside the bun!
