Weight Watcher's launch Low Carb New Year diet plan or the diet that dare not speak it's name !
Weight Watcher's launch Low Carb New Year diet plan.
Over at the Express newspaper they run an article on the Weight Watchers New Year diet plan. Much to my amazement there is a lot of low carb grub listed and definitely a step in the right direction. But, there is always a but, they seem to be hedging their bets. Lot's of talk of low fat, while recommending high fat foods and also a get out of jail free card should it all go pear shaped with this comment. "Lower carb doesn't mean no carbs, as we know that's not a healthy approach to weight loss. Instead this is about enjoying lighter carbs with a focus on satisfying proteins. It is important to include healthy, especially wholegrain, carbohydrates in your meals each day so you'll see some throughout the diet."
OK a few contradictory statements, but yet again we see ever more outfits recommending low carb. In the six years or more I have been promoting low carb, it has gone from only practised by freaky eaters and is now becoming mainstream.
Onwards and upwards.
