The low carb diet.......naija style

Greetings people, this segment reviews trending diets and weightloss methods that have worked for real life individuals living in Nigeria and its communities. 

"The theory behind the low-carb diet is that insulin prevents fat breakdown in the body by allowing sugar to be used for energy. Proponents of the low-carb diet believe that decreasing carbs results in lower insulin levels, which causes the body to burn stored fat for energy and ultimately helps you shed excess weight and reduce risk factors for a variety of health conditions." - http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/low-carb-diet/NU00279

The low carb diet naija style involves cutting out most carbohydrates from your diet, that's to say eliminate-;
 rice, yam, garri, all swallows(semi,wheat,amala etc),beans(no,it isn't a protein! When in doubt google😜), bread,ripe plantain, fruit etc.

Acceptable meals when on this diet are;
- fish pepper soup 
- fish
-skinless chicken
-Unripe plantain 
- lots of water

Beans can be introduced later in the diet, say a month after starting because it contains protein and keeps you full for longer.

          Bisi went on the low carb diet

This isn't a quick fix diet but with persistence and determination, you will get results.
Don't forget to exercise when you can and if you don't have time, find a way to chip in some- use the stairs and not the elevator, walk short distances instead of driving ( invest in sunscreen if you are worried about getting dark), don't send your househelp,siblings or spouse so much! Get up and DIY. 
I know it's easier said than done but trust me it is totally doable. 
Hoping to hear some positive feedback.
