Cut the White Stuff: Rogue Nutritionist Jonny Bowden, PhD, CNS

“When you start a low-carb diet, learn to recognize food cravings for what they are — withdrawal from carbohydrates,” says the nutrition expert and author of nine books including the bestsellers Living Low Carb and The 150 Healthiest Foods on Earth. “You need to know this because to lose weight, you need to cut out the white stuff — the sugar and the white processed carbohydrates — and eat more protein and fat. But you’ll experience cravings exactly the same as you would cravings when you give up cigarettes. It takes a few days for your body to get accustomed to not getting those processed white carbohydrates, but once you do, you’ll be over the hump.”
