What’s Low Carb Diets?
Low Carb Diet is a diet of very low in carbohydrates lead to reduction in the body’s insulin production, resulting usage of fat and protein as the main energy source. The primary aim of low carbohydrates diets is to force the body to use fat as the main source of energy. When this happens a person produces ketone bodies to energies parts of the body that cannot use fat as an energy source – the brain, and red blood cells, in peculiar and result in side effects such as nausea and fatigue
You reduce all the carbohydrate from your diet and increase your protein and fat intake. So you ultimately cut down things like pasta, bread, rice and alcohol, yet you eat unlimited amounts of meat, cheese and butter.
Does it Work?
People who go on low carb diets do lose weight and they lose it very quickly. Majority of weight loss comes from loss of water and muscle tissue, and not the fat. Also, if you’re trying to lose weight permanently, losing precious lean muscle tissue is like sabotaging your own body. Muscle tissue is metabolically active, and burns calories even when you are at rest. A decrease in the amount of muscle tissue you have will lead to a decrease in the number of calories you need each day to maintain your weight, making it much harder to keep your weight under control when you stop following the low carb diet.
