THE 10 RULES OF BANTING
Our quick guide to the ground rules
1 REMEMBER this is not a high protein diet. It’s a high fat, medium protein, low carb way of eating.
2 CHOOSE real foods that look like what they are, and cook them from scratch.
3 NO SUGAR It’s best to go cold turkey. But if you need to make it a transition, substitute with stevia, xylitol or erythritol – NOT artificial sweeteners.
4 NO GRAINS of any kind.
5 FAT is not the enemy. Enjoy it!
6 STOP snacking. You won’t need to – it’s just a habit.
7 EAT only when you’re hungry; eat until you’re satisfied – then stop.
8 EAT EGGS They’re healthy, satisfying and very good for you.
9 NO (or very, very little) FRUIT Think of it as a sweet rather than a healthy snack.
10 DON’T eat when you’re not hungry. You won’t die if you occasionally skip a meal you don’t feel like eating.
