Looking for an effective way to have some flexibility with weight loss results in your nutritional plan? Try going without carbs until noon, and then have no carbs within 3 hours of going to bed. So if you go to bed at 10:00 every night, this gives you from noon to 7:00 to have some flexibility with eating carbs. Going carbless for these early and late hours is a highly effective way to suppress insulin levels, which burns away body fat. If you want even more of an effect for fat burning, then eat carbs that are low on the glycemic index between those hours of noon to 7:00.
