7 Benefits of a Low-Carb Diet Plan

A very popular diet used nowadays to help lose weight is the low-carb diet plan. As the name implies, the diet is based on consuming more of proteins.

While there are these 7 scientifically benefits of following the low-carb diet, it is always better to consult your doctor before starting it, especially if you suffer from health problems like high blood pressure and diabetes.

Really does help you lose weight
Research and results over the years prove that it's possible to lose weight while following a low-carb diet. However the amount of weight you lose defers between individuals, and depends on how determined and capable you are at eliminating sugars and carbs from your diet.

Improved blood pressure and sugar levels
With hypertension or high blood pressure being one of the strongest risk factors for stroke and heart disease, it's important you lower the risk of this disease by lowering your blood pressure levels. While pills can help you do this, even following a healthy diet like a low-carb diet plan helps reduce high blood pressure especially in the obese.

Similarly, low carbohydrate diets do help reduce the levels of fasting glucose and glycated hemoglobin. So if you are diabetic, you enjoy the dual benefit of losing weight and reducing blood sugar levels by following a low-carb diet plan.

Helps improve triglyceride levels
Triglyceride levels are an important risk factor for cardiovascular disease where its high levels are related to risk factors like abnormal lipoprotein metabolism, insulin resistance, obesity, diabetes mellitus and low HDL cholesterol levels. Studies have proven that reducing your carbohydrate intake helps significantly reduce triglyceride levels.

Improves HDL cholesterol levels
Low HDL cholesterol levels are associated with an increased risk of heart disease and other cardiovascular diseases. One way to incise its levels is by restricting your carbohydrate intake through a low-carb diet plan.

Reduces insulin resistance
People with the metabolic syndrome suffer from insulin resistance, which seems to have an association with cardiovascular disease. Research has proven that restricting your carb intake helps lower insulin resistance more than by restricting your fat intake.

Reduces insulin and C-reactive protein levels
High insulin levels or hyperinsulinemia is a risk factor for coronary heart disease and is associated with insulin resistance. Lowering insulin levels is better and possible through carbohydrate restriction.

Helps reduce C-reactive protein levels
C-reactive protein (CRP) is a known marker of inflammation and is measured in blood. While high sensitivity CRP is associated with a heightened cardiovascular risk, carbohydrate restriction helps lower CRP levels. This proves that low-carb diet plans do indeed help reduce inflammation.

With so many benefits associated with a low-carb diet plan, there's no harm in following the diet. Not only to lose weight, but also to experience these amazing health benefits and thus end up feeling better and healthier!

Grasping The No Carb Diet

A no carb diet is different from a low carb diet. It is more intense because you're allowed zero carbohydrate intake.

There must be an alternative source of energy in your diet. Fat will be the main source, and protein is another backup. The bulk of your intake on a no carb diet will be cheese, fish, egg and meat.

The natural consequence of this is a ketogenic state as the fat consumed is converted into ketones. Oxidization of fat is not the regular setting of your metabolic processes which typically depend on carbohydrates. For this reason, a strict no carb diet should ideally be vetted by a physician, especially if you have any medical conditions which could make it dangerous to try.

To qualify for the category of zero carb diet, your total daily intake should not exceed 50 grams of carbohydrate. However, even when you eat more than that, there's a chance that you'll continue losing weight.

Preparing for a no carb diet

It's hard to get started on such a strict dietary regime without prior preparation. Give yourself time to prepare for it. Draw up a list of food items that are allowed. Don't assume that because this is a tough diet, it won't be delicious. There are many tasty items that can be eaten even on such a protocol.

Creativity is the key in enjoying your restricted diet. Be ready and willing to try out different new recipes and meal plans.

First, assess how many carb calories you are permitted to eat every day. This will depend on your weight loss goals and current body weight. You'll quickly realize that eating fewer carbs changes and optimizes your body composition and proportion, leaving you in better metabolic health and with improved levels of health biomarkers.

The good news is that when you make sure your glucose and glycogen levels are enough to replenish cellular stores, you will not feel tired or weak even on a strictly carb restricted diet. Few dieters complain of fatigue, low energy or feeling dull mentally.

There is one caveat with very low carb diets. You cannot get enough calories if you're an active person. Anyone who runs, jogs, skis or is active physically over prolonged durations can manage an adequate calorie intake without including carbs in the diet.

Under such circumstances, starving your body of carbohydrates can lead to tiredness, muscle aches, bone loss and reduced performance. That is not a desirable situation and your diet plan needs modification.
