Banting Flat Tummy Foods List






Ok, let me explain how the lists work.




Although working from the lists is crucial - it is not the be all to end all.

You HAVE TO download the Beginners Guide to Banting from Banting 7 Day Meal Plans.



The information contained in that document is really the most comprehensive, informative Banting guide you will get - FREE or PAID! (and that happens to be completely free of charge - so please get downloading.




Below however are the three lists.

We don't have rainbow lists because we believe in keeping it simple.








The Green List:








The Above list has all the foods that you can eat every day.

There are cautionary carb values next to those that are a little more than our usual "under 6g carbs" means green list - otherwise you have healthy unprocessed meats, vegetables and fruits under 6g/100g net carbs, approved sweeteners and healthy fats on this list.
Remember that Dairy like Milk, amasi and yoghurt - unless you are tracking your consumption - the general guide suggests only 100ml in total of any one of the three.
Why? The carbs quickly add up - as most are 5g/100ml or grams.







The Orange List:








Let me explain to you how the Orange List ACTUALLY works.

The orange list is not a NO list - it is a "sometimes" list.
Sometimes refers to whether you are here to lose weight or not too.
It does not mean you can't EVER have orange list if you are not at Goal Weight.
"Sometimes" however depends on you and whether you are diabetic or insulin resistant. Orange list, because it is higher in carbs - has more of an ability to spike your blood sugar levels - which we are generally looking to avoid.
Pregnant and Breastfeeding moms as well as children can basically eat freely off the Orange list so as to stay out of ketosis. (So keeping your net carbs to above 50g per day)












The Red List:








Red list is the NEVER List.

With the exception of occasional oats and brown rice for children, it is off limits and not healthy for ANYONE! You are not "missing out" of any nutrients if you cut the above foods out completely!

Now, how it works, is it takes your weight, height, gender, age and level of physical activity into account when it works out specific Banting Ratios related to all your personal stats.
It gives you the exact amount of protein, fat and carbs - in grams as well as portions) you should/can eat to optimize weight loss - but do so without the use of supplements, any expensive teas or crazy crash dieting.

3. Stick to the meal plan as much as possible.

4. Only weigh yourself before and after the challenge.

5. Try to keep it green list. If you add in some orange list items, make sure its within your ratios. Red list is a complete no no.

6. Remember that the ratio is the maximum amount you can have, per day, for weight loss. See it as a "cap" or a "highest amount you can have" rather than a target that must be reached every day. If you still have a fat or protein left, its fine. We just suggest that those doing the 5 Fats, 3 Protein and 1 carb -  stick to their ratios as much as possible as we don't want anyone under eating, as by undereating - you can actually stall your weight loss too!

7. If your ratio is greater than those pictured above, you could either adapt those from above or double up on the smaller ones making minor adjustments.
