Another option is to decrease the intake of carbohydrates slowly, over a few weeks, to minimize side effects. But the “Nike way” (Just Do It) may be the best choice for most people. Removing most sugar and starch often results in several pounds lost on the scale within a few days. This may be mostly fluids, but it can still be great for motivation.
That said, you don’t have to jump in with both feet. Schmidt recommends trying to eat under 200 g of carbs a day initially (a moderate-carb diet) and then adjust lower based on how you feel. “If you start paying attention to the carbs in your diet, you’ll eat fewer processed foods,” she says. And it’s those whole foods that are the basis of good health.

Regarding the active dry yeast vs the instant yeast, I actually once accidentally used the instant type and followed the same steps - it still worked, proofed nicely but it is not necessary to proof it, that is true. And no need for honey/sugar either. You can just add it to the dry mix. If you do that, remember to use the same amount of water (do not reduce). Thanks for such a great feedback! 😊

For women, that's over 40 percent of your recommended daily value for fiber in one serving,” says Harris-Pincus. Use these to make pizza or soft fish tacos. “They also make amazing breakfast wraps stuffed with eggs, black beans, cheese, and roasted veggies,” she says.

The Atkins diet gained widespread popularity in 2003 and 2004. At the height of its popularity one in eleven North American adults claimed to be on a low-carb diet such as Atkins.[23] This large following was blamed for large declines in the sales of carbohydrate-heavy foods like pasta and rice: sales were down 8.2 and 4.6 percent, respectively, in 2003. The diet's success was even blamed for a decline in Krispy Kreme sales.[24] Trying to capitalize on the "low-carb craze", many companies released special product lines that were low in carbohydrates.
