“Mark, I thought you were a healthy eater, why are you eating a Peperami?!”
Those were the words of my female boss as I sat at my desk the one day last week at break time.
I had just finished scoffing down a low-carb wrap filled with tuna, mayo and mozzarella cheese 🙂 I wasn’t quite full as my muscles had
taken a pounding the night before and were begging for nutrients.
So I did wha
t any self-respecting bodybuilding low-carber would do, I reached for a Peperami, you know, the wee spicy pork salami snack.
So, I’m sitting there minding my own business when this comment is made. I reply,
“What’s wrong with peperami?”
“They’re full of fat”
“I suppose you eat low-fat the rest of the day though?”
“Nope. Most of daily calories come from fat actually.”
“Did you know that it would appear that the body literally needs carbohydrates to gain fat?”
“You mean if I ate a diet devoid of carbs, that I couldn’t gain fat?”
“Pretty much, though it’s yet to be tested whether there is a limit on that”
“So, what if I want to lose weight?”
“Well, I suggest that you eat low-carb, do weekly weigh-ins and adjust portion sizes as time goes by to keep losing weight for as long as you wish.”
“Hmm, sounds interesting”
“Yeah, I think your weight is most likely due to a high sensitivity to carbohydrates”….
The conversation continued and within a few minutes a new low-carber was born.
Funny how such a small thing can turn into something totally unexpected.
PS If you eat low carb and want a snack, why haven’t you picked up a pack of Peperami yet?
Can I give you my free muscle-building workout?
