Good Morning from Steviva Brands, Inc.,

I am well into my new book entitled "How To Be A Big Fat Loser: the simple economics of weight loss". I expect it will be finished sometime in July and I will give each one of my subscribers an autographed copy. While writing this book something has become very obvious to me. While I am a huge advocate of limiting high glycemic carbohydrates I think a factor that is being denied is calorie counting. Fats have calories. In part that is why chocolate cake will put weight on you aside from processed sugar of course.

Many low carb dishes and products are high in fat and regardless of how many carbs you are cutting from you diet if you are taking in 3500 calories per day and only burning 2000 you are going to gain weight. Remember, one pound equals 3500 calories. If you run in a deficit you will lose weight. So watch those calories as well as carbs.

Water is paramount to your weight loss equation. Drinking copious amounts of water flushes fats out of you system as well as increasing you metabolism. What I suggest is adding the juice of half a lemon to 32 ounces of water with a sprinkle of Steviva Brand Stevia Powder. Aside from being less than 2 carbs, you will get the health benefits that the stevia provides along with the vitamin C and electrolytes that lemon have. You can substitute limes for lemons if you get bored. Click here to order stevia powder.
