Low Carb Diet

This is a Miracle! Low Carb diet helps you to:

  • Boost your energy level
  • Lose weight
  • Maintain a healthy weight
  • Improve your appearance
  • Lower insulin production
  • Reduce risk factors for heart disease, hypertension, diabetes and obesity.

A low carb diet is very helpful to lose weight as it burns fat instead of burning sugar in the body. Modifying the diet to eliminate refined sugars and carbohydrates and focusing on high quality protein and good fats will gradually train the body to burn more fat and less sugar.

Low Carbohydrate Diet - A Healthy and Prudent Choice

  • Eat plenty of fruits and vegetables as they are high in disease-fighting antioxidants. Although intake of fruits and most vegetables is are restricted in the initial phase of some low carbohydrate diets, they are allowed back in limited amounts once the loss in body weight has reached a plateau. The nutrients obtained from a diet rich in fruits and vegetables have been shown to decrease blood pressure, as well as protect against cancer, heart disease, diabetes, metabolic syndrome, and obesity. It is easy to add more fruits and vegetables to your diet, once you get in the habit. Examples are; add some berries to breakfast, eat a tomato at lunch, include broccoli with dinner, drink some vegetable juice with snacks, and have a large salad with your meal.
  • Eat a diet of whole foods, rather than easy snacks and convenience foods. Snack on low carb snack foods like crackers, ice cream, popcorn, or low carb pizza.

This diet sends the body into a state of an imbalance that causes your body to flush out toxins through your urine. Do not restrict carbohydrate consumption to the extreme levelsas the body needs them to utilize the protein you consume. Keeping this in mind helps you to increase or even maintain muscle mass.

The downside of using this diet is that the body stips to burn the carbohydrates as it's primary source of energy as soon as you get off this diet. This usually results in weight gain within days.

Maintain a balanced diet that has plenty of fruits and vegetables, 1-2 servings of a whole grain bread or pasta, high quality proteins such as fish, tofu and white meat from poultry and good fats, calcium from low fat dairy products such as yogurt and cheese and your body will respond with a slow, steady and healthy weight loss.
