Most people have probably heard of the latest diet fad called the Banting diet. The Banting Diet was made popular by Professor Tim Noaks with his best-selling book The Real Meal Revolution. In a nutshell, the idea behind the Banting diet is to consume low-carbohydrate, high-fat (LCHF) foods. This idea is totally against the popular belief of a low-fat, high-carbohydrate (LFHC) diet that we have been taught by the media all these years. Instead of getting its energy from sugar or carbohydrates, it gets it from fat, and animal fat in particular.
It is quite difficult these days for one to keep up with a diet in today’s fast-paced and busy environments. We are prone to eating unhealthy fast foods and snacks as we don’t have time to prepare a proper meal during the day. So how do you stick to a diet like the Banting diet?
The answer is biltong. Biltong is high in energy, protein, and fat, but low in carbohydrates and contains no sugar. Biltong also has a long shelf life, so you don’t need to buy it fresh every day or store it in the freezer. And to top it off, the biltong tastes great. If you’re in a hurry every morning and want to stick to a diet like the Banting diet during your workday, take a few packets of biltong with you. To help get you through the day, you can add some healthy nuts to your daily food pack. Macadamias, almonds, or walnuts would be a great idea, as they are all high-fat, low-carb foods.
Since biltong and walnuts are such convenient foods, you can keep them in your drawer and have a snack whenever you want. For added convenience, you can purchase pre-packaged lunch boxes with biltong and walnuts to help you stay within the limits of your diet.
The great thing about monthly pre-packaged lunch packs is the fact that your diet plan is already worked out for you, as the packs are labeled for each day. The idea is to snack in small amounts throughout the day when you feel hungry and not have to eat a big lunch that makes you feel full and sleepy in the afternoons.
Prepackaged biltong and walnuts also have the nutrition facts for the contents on the label, making it easy to track how much fat, carbs, protein, or calories you’re getting for each package consumed. This makes keeping track of your diet very easy.
So if you are lazy like me in packing lunch boxes and finding it difficult to stick to a diet, pre-packaged lunch boxes with the right amount of fats, proteins and carbohydrates will be a great solution for you.
