Thinking About Trying Bob Harper’s Super Carb Diet? Read This First

With the keto diet, intermittent fasting, and the Paleo diet gaining in popularity, it can feel like all paths to weight loss involve cutting out the things you love.
So upon hearing about the super carb diet, you may feel like you've hit the jackpot. Does this diet mean you can eat all the bagels and pasta your heart desires?
The simple answer is no – if your goal is to lose weight, a carb-friendly diet still doesn't mean that you can fill your dinner plate up with an entire box of pasta. So what does the super carb diet involve, if not unlimited bread?
What Is the Super Carb Diet? The super carb diet was popularized by The Biggest Loser trainer Bob Harper. He decided to write a book about the diet after he personally suffered from a massive heart attack and took his recovery seriously by making big changes to his diet.

If You’re Struggling to Lose Weight, This Easy Diet Change Could Help

A post shared by Mounir | (@iwannaburnfat) on Jul 2, 2018 at 1:15pm PDT
Diet is key if you're trying to lose body fat, and creating a calorie deficit is essential. Staying on track with calorie cutting can be so difficult, especially if you're exercising (it can increase hunger) or cutting out your favorite foods (it increases cravings).
Personal trainer Mounir Azegra, who shares his evidence-based information on weight loss and fitness to help others achieve their goals, offers a solution that may help you easily find success. Mounir says, “you don't have to precisely track your caloric intake to have control over your nutrition. Taking measures to decrease your portion sizes and the amount of food you eat goes a long way. Skipping breakfast may be a good approach for some people seeking to moderate their food intake,” especially if you tend to overeat or if you hate the tediousness of counting calories.

If You Don’t Drink, You May Be More Likely to Get Dementia, According to New Study

It should come as no surprise that heavy drinking was associated with developing dementia; alcohol has toxic effects on the body, including the brain, and has been linked to numerous diseases. However, a new study in the British Medical Journal found that not only are heavy drinkers more likely to get dementia, but so are people who don't drink at all.
The study followed 9,000 British people between the ages of 35 and 55 for 30 years and found that those who didn't drink at all for 10 years were almost 50 percent more likely to develop dementia than those who only drank a moderate amount. The recommended amount is 14 units a week (about seven pints of beer, seven glasses of wine, or 14 single 25-milliliter measures of spirits) spread out over a few days, and those who drank more than the recommended amount were also more likely to develop dementia later in life.

Do Heavier Weights Burn More Fat? A Trainer Answers

Knowing the right weights to use for which workout can be a challenge, especially when you're trying to match the equipment to your fitness goals. If you're wondering whether heavier weights equal greater fat burn, we reached out to Clarence Hairston, IGNITE master trainer, NASM certified personal trainer, and AGM of Fitness at The Bay Club Company. The question makes sense to ask – heavier weights equal more effort, which should result in greater burn. But the answer isn't that simple.
According to Clarence, “there really is no clear answer” as “both heavier and lighter weights will help you burn fat.” The determining factors, however, are based on how much effort you put in and what your goals are. “If you are looking to build strength and muscle, take that weight up and push yourself,” he told POPSUGAR. “If you are looking to tone or build lean muscle, try a lower weight with higher reps.”
