Losing your will to lose weight?
Reduce the amount of carbohydrates in your diet. It is known that in order to promote weight loss you are required to lower your energy input and increase your energy expenditure which equals a negative energy balance i.e. weight loss.
Why Does It Work?
Low carbohydrate diets have been around for a very long time and proven to work. A diet which is very low in carbohydrates leads to a reduction in the body’s insulin production. That makes the body use fat and protein stores being used as its main energy source, and that leads to weight loss.
How – low carb diets burn more calories
Low-carb diets do reduce your appetite and make you eat fewer calories, which in turn will promote weight loss naturally, as long as you keep carbs down. A study conducted in 2012 showed that participants on a low carb diet burned 300 calories a day whilst inactive, equivalent to the calories classically burnt in 1 hour of walking. Imagine that! A bonus of burning 300 calories – without actually exercising! (Ebbeling 2012).
The Main Culprit – Hidden Sugars
Many health experts will agree that diets fail because of sneaky sources of starch and sugar, hidden within food that you consume everyday. A study by Dr Plourde, took participants and spilt them into 3 groups. Group 1 were shown all the hidden sugars and starch in their food. Group 2 were shown some of them. Group 3 were left completely alone in their choices. In total group one lost 67% of their body fat. 50% more than the other two groups. A low Carb diet will eliminate this risk as you just don’t eat these foods.
Other Benefits to Low Carb
There are many proven benefits of a low carbohydrate diet apart from just weight loss. It’s been shown to:
· lower blood sugar, lower blood pressure and triglycerides;
· lower bad cholesterol (LDL) and raise the good cholesterol (HDL) (Volek 2009);
· Help heart health by lowering the risk of heart disease by 30% (Halton et al., 2006).
