Low Carb Diet Program – Don’t Confuse Me With Facts Please

uyeWhen it comes to healthy low carb diet plans most people will usually say that they are not going to count carbohydrates or measure the protein, carbs and fats for each meal they eat. In this article, I would like to be able to show you how simple it is to follow a low carb diet program.

A low carb diet plan is usually a plan for eating the right amounts of macro nutrients at every meal and snack. If you do not or will not monitor or measure the amount of carbohydrates, proteins and fats in the food you are consuming… you are not going to be eating a healthy diet. If you are not eating a healthy low carb diet, you are probably going to get fat and/or stay fat or worse yet – make yourself sick. It is as plain and simple as that.

Proteins, carbohydrates and fats are usually referred to as “macro nutrients” by “the experts”. Pretending that you are not smart enough or diligent enough to make the calculations necessary to consume the right amount of these macro nutrients is just plain fool-hardy. And, it is a sure-fire way to set yourself up for ill health and obesity.

Atkins Diet Program

hhhhhhhhWhen choosing a weight loss program many people will search all over the web for the right program for them. Whether it’s a low carbohydrate diet, a pill, or even a video game there is every different kind of method out there. Finding the right method for you is the most important. When choosing the right weight loss program for you it is important to make sure it is safe, fits your needs, has experienced educators working with you, also has a weight loss maintenance program and does not scam you into spending thousands of dollars with no results.

Dr. Robert Atkins started the largest ‘low-carb craze” when he wrote a series of books titled, ” Dr. Atkins’ Diet Revolution” in 1972. The books were centered around his belief that the main cause of obesity was from eating carbohydrates such as sugar, flour, and high fructose syrup. The Atkins diet program restricts “net carbs” to decrease hunger due to the longer process of digestion for fats and proteins. While other weight loss programs, such as Alli weight loss, include an over the counter weight loss pill that stops the digestion of fat.

Whether the Atkins diet program is effective and healthy for you is still up for debate. Some studies say it helps prevent cardiovascular disease, lowers LPD cholesterol, and increases HDL cholesterol. Other studies say the diet contributes to cardiovascular disease, coronary heart disease, arrhythmia, osteoporosis, and kidney stones. Diets that are high in protein cause the loss of calcium and lowering in urinary citrate levels. In 2004 a study was conducted and found that the Atkins diet lead to 70% constipation of the subjects, 65% had halitosis, 54% had headaches, and 10% reported hearing loss. It is important to research and find all the risks and benefits of a weight loss program that you are considering.

There are thousands of weight loss programs and diet plans available and several dieticians and nutritionists have created food supplements, diet schedules, meal plans and the like to help individuals lose weight and fight obesity. You may read thousands of testimonials that say how one diet plan is better than another and how this program will is easier or faster compared to the others. However, the question of which weight loss program and diet plan actually works best can only be answered by one person, you.

In practical terms all of the diet plans and weight loss programs simply focus on cutting down your intake of fatty food. This means watching out for those meals that are high in carbohydrates like pasta and rice. At the same time you will also have to look the other way when you see those cakes, souffl├ęs and ice creams on the menu. These desserts have high sugar content and will most likely destroy whatever diet plan you may have. Should you crave for these tasty desserts then you must make sure to choose those that are sugar free and low in calories.

Most diet and meal plans will also encourage you to increase your intake of fiber. You will find a good dose of fiber in fruits and vegetables. Fiber is great for those who want to lose weight real fast as this will help cleanse your digestive system. Increasing the fiber content in your diet will improve your digestion and facilitate the flushing out of fat in your body. At the same time, fruits and vegetables are great sources of essential vitamins and minerals that will keep you healthy all throughout your weight loss and diet program. Citrus fruits are great sources of vitamin C or ascorbic acid that will help build your body’s resistance against diseases. Green leafy vegetables are also good sources of iron. As you cut down on red meat in your diet, remember that you are also cutting down on a good source of iron. You will have to supplement this loss with vitamins and more importantly, with vegetables.
