We’ve all heard the hype about following a low-carb diet. Many diets recommend lowering your carbohydrate intake and you will lose weight. Sounds pretty easy, right?
First, let’s discuss exactly what a carbohydrate is.
A carbohydrate is a large group of organic compounds occurring in foods and living tissues including sugars, starch and cellulose. Carbohydrates contain hydrogen and oxygen in the same ratio as water (2:1) and typically can be broken down to release energy in the animal body. Carbohydrates get converted by our bodies into glucose. Excess and unused glucose gets turned into fat on our bodies. So eating less carbohydrates results in less stored fat on our bodies.
Why follow a low-carb diet?
You might chose to follow a low-carb diet because you want a diet that restricts certain carbs to help you lose weight or to change your overall eating habits. Always check with your doctor or health care provider before starting any weight loss diet especially if you have any health conditions such as diabetes or heart disease.
Since all carbohydrates are converted by our body into glucose, but aren’t converted at the same rate, more and more diabetics are choosing to eat foods low-carb foods. These are foods that contain a lower amount of carbohydrates. Many diets recommend diabetics follow a low-carb diet to manage the disease and reduce the need for medications.
What is a low carbohydrate diet?
A low-carb diet is a diet that emphasizes foods and beverages high in protein and fat and restricts carbohydrates such as those found in sugary foods and drinks, pasta and bread. Bread? That can’t be right? I can’t give up my Dimpflmeier Bakery bread! Fret not, you don’t have to!
