Tim Noakes diet
« on: April 20, 2014, 02:12:58 pm »
or rather 'eating plan'. I have been on for 3 month and lost 6kg.... And the food tastes much better. Also have lots of energy and after some excercise I am not hangry at all... On carbs I used to be starving afterwards

Post the plan for us if you don't mind?

Here you go:

Cut out: potatoes, bread, pasta, flour.

Eat: eggs, fat and protein, vegetables that grow above ground and cut out fruit as much as possible.

We on the same diet but not Noakes's. My dad was following his book and went from 135kg to 98kg. He said he has cut back on some of the fat since the Noakes plan uses a lot of cream and butter etc and it made things to rich for him.

We have been on a low carb diet for 4 weeks. I have lost 4kgs and the wife 6 (...but she was pregnant so had more to "lose").

I love it. I don't ever feel hungry and feel like I have more energy. Weight loss has been slowish but I drop about a kilo a week, I just dipped under 90kgs. Want to lose at least 5 more.

And cut out beer, and ideally alcohol.  I really miss the beer.  but have one once in a while...

We actually use a lot of bacon now as it is good for flavour  as well as high fat.
What I also find is that once I have done a little excercise,  the fat loss actually accellerates. Not so much the weight but I can feel my midriff fat disappearing. Lot of my clothes now fall off....

Have a look at the CNA etc, there is a new mag out from TN where he has recipes and articles. [quote author=Draadwerk

Instead of butter for frying also use coconut oil. It comes in a little tub and works very well. not as rich as butter

We also use Coconut oil instead of vegetable oil.

The booze..... ja look. If I cut that out I would have lost even more weight. Beer isn't as bad.... I only drink beer on Friday afternoons, never at home but I can't cut out wine. But I am trying to drink less.

The only thing that my wife has given up on is baking. She has tried a few low carb baking ideas but none of them really works.

The one thing on this diet is when we go out or to friends and eat carbs we just carry on the next day. Eating a potato won't kill you so we eat it when we have to but cut it out the next day.

By the way, watch this....

I happened to stumble onto it before we even considered going low carb but it is a interesting look on why we were told low fat was the way to go.

Here is how he explains why you get fat:

Use Xilitol instead of suger as well.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Xylitol

"Possessing approximately 33% fewer calories, xylitol is a lower-calorie alternative to table sugar. Absorbed more slowly than sugar, it does not contribute to high blood sugar levels or the resulting hyperglycemia caused by insufficient insulin response. This characteristic has also proven beneficial for people suffering from metabolic syndrome, a common disorder that includes insulin resistance, hypertension, hypercholesterolemia, and an increased risk for blood clots.[30] Xylitol is used as a sweetener in medicines, chewing gum and pastilles."

Yip.

But I have started almost cutting out even that. The only thing I need a bit of xilitol in is instant coffee.

yep we use that for the rare occasion we do baking, but i take everything without sugar. also dont eat premade meals at all. those are loaded with sugar. we make all our meal from scratch.

search on YouTube. 'the men who made us fat'

Yes my wifr tried pumpkin fritters last night and it was a total fcukup. so in the end she was pissed with me.. WTF

The one thing on this diet is when we go out or to friends and eat carbs we just carry on the next day. Eating a potato won't kill you so we eat it when we have to but cut it out the next day.
Yes I used to be VERY disciplined, but then realised that now and then wont hurt, so now I dont make a fuss if I 'have to'  have a social beer or wine.

swambo's been on this for 3 months; lost 11kg so far. I'm at my ideal weight, albeit more flab than muscle, but I haven't put on any weight since switching to this diet with swambo, and the food is awesome.

We almost exclusively cook with butter rather than any kind of oil. Everything tastes better when cooked with butter. Everything.

I have never been fond of pasta, bread,etc. , and I could feel that it was not good for me. Always ate fat, dairy, and I am slow in picking up weight, considering that I eat a lot of sugar.

Listen to your body.

Do you really have more energy eating this way?

I'm already thin and eat WTF I want but when I'm not out doing adrenalin/physical related exersize or work, I'm dog- tired and lethargic.

How does beer or other alcohol affect you, seeing as it's virtually all liquid?

You should really read The Real Meal Revolution by Noakes.
It is unfortunately 19mb large and can't be uploaded here but I could mail it to whomever wants it.....

Started this a few weeks back, dropped between 6kg and 8kg quite quickly then stabilized but that will happen.

Never liked bread, potatoes and crap but you can catch me in a trap with a nice crispy piece of fat on a chop.
I do have a sweet tooth but once you are used to cutting out sugar (takes a few weeks) it is no longer an issue.
Love cheese, butter and so on, so this way of eating is perfect for me.

Struggle with letting go of beer, have cut down a lot keep it for weekends now.

Edit: Have made a few of the recipes in the book, great food.  Also made the carb free bread and it works well and I like the taste (with real butter of course).
