I've been doing some research over the past week and have decided to go on the low carb high protein diet so i can lose fat and gain fitness hopefully. I've read around and have a couple of quick questions to ask you. - Some sites say strictly no fizzy drinks, just water. I looked at some diet choices and they show that they have a trace of carbs in them so does this mean that there ok? - It says your allowed 20g of carbs. Is this per day or per week? Also, do you add 5g to that after you have done 20g for a certain amount of time? - Lastly, i was just wondering how long it would take to see the effect, i.e. how much are supposed to lose in weight per week. The reason i am trying to lose fat and gain fitness is because i would like to join the Royal Air Force when i have got the right qualifications, and obviously will need to be in the peak of fitness when i apply . I was also wondering if some of you have some good tips to this diet. Any special menus that taste good. My current diet is pretty much bacon, eggs and tuna. This can only last so long before it starts to get extremly boring. All the help is much appreciated.
