Benefits of going Low Carb

A low-carb diet limits carbohydrates, often called carbs — such as those found in grains, starchy vegetables and fruit. A low-carb diet focuses on foods high in protein and fat. Many types of low-carb diets exist. Each diet has varying limits on the type and amount of carbs you can eat.

Purpose

A low-carb diet is generally used for weight loss. Some low-carb diets may have health benefits beyond weight loss, such as lowering your risk of type 2 diabetes and metabolic syndrome.


Extra glucose is stored in the liver and muscles. Some is converted into body fat. A low carb diet is meant to cause the body to burn stored fat for energy which leads to weight lost. This is one of the reasons why it's highly recommended by doctors to lessen carbohydrate intake. A diet rich in fiber helps with a disciplined exercise routine.


You can also carry low-carb snacks if you can't help munching on anything. Low-cab snacks can include:


  • unsweetened yogurt

  • vegetable sticks

  • nuts

  • cheese

  • hard- boiled eggs


It is important to avoid overeating. For a more detailed idea on the best low-carb diet for you, you can set an appointment through www.envoguemedandwellness.com.
