Weight loss is a noble goal. It seems like a simple one, too, especially to people who have never tried it. You spend plenty of time working out, you watch what you eat, and the pounds are supposed to come off, right? So how come you’re running yourself ragged and the numbers on your scale don’t seem to budge?
According to David Plourdé, Ph.D, the founder of the Plourdé Institute and an expert on scientific nutrition, it’s your body’s fat cells that are the true enemy when you’re trying to lose weight. He’s developed a scientific approach to weight loss that’s focused on adjusting hormone-sensitive lipase in the body. This enzyme is responsible for breaking down fat and releasing its energy, and keeping it properly balanced is essential for reaching a healthy weight. According to Plourdé, the “hidden” carbohydrates in most people’s diets can delay this process by 72 hours or more.
What do we mean by “hidden” carbohydrates? These are the simple bits and pieces of unhealthy nutrition (usually sugars and starches) that pass without notice in all sorts of everyday foods, even those with healthy reputations. A cheddar omelet made with broccoli is a prime example. Doesn’t it sound healthy and packed with protein? If it’s made with packaged, pre-shredded cheese, it may actually be packed with powdered cellulose to prevent clumping. That’s a starch you don’t want in your diet. Pre-separated egg whites are suspect, too; they often come with “modified food starch,” an ingredients label word for flower. You have to avoid hidden carbs like this if you want to lose weight faster. Check closely and you’ll see the same ingredients pop up over and over again. Starches masquerade in raw chicken as “product,” and these unwanted carbs can even pop up in medication.
This makes a surprising difference in the fight to control your weight. Dr. Plourdé ran an extensive test studying the weight-loss results of over 300 overweight people trying to stick with moderate-fat, high-protein diets. The results prove that it pays to know how to avoid hidden carbs. Individuals given comprehensive instruction on spotting and staying away from hidden carbs were able to reduce their body fat masses by an average of 67 percent. That’s 50 percent more fat reduction than the test subjects without instructions experienced.
Obviously, you should be looking for ways to spot and avoid these carbs yourself. Here are some keywords that should send up warning flags for you: Maltodextrian (a starch derivative), modified starch, powdered cellulose. As a good rule of thumb, though, you can judge your foods simply on the length of the ingredients list. As the list of substances grows longer, the odds of hidden carbohydrates popping up increases steadily. Keep it simple to avoid hidden carbs.
