Benefits of Low Carb Lifestyle

The low carbohydrate lifestyle works on the principle of reducing the body’s intake of carbohydrates i.e. sugars and starches mainly – and eating a healthy combination of medium protein, high saturated fat (correct natural fats) and fibres, and low carbohydrates.

This lifestyle forces the body to use its own fat reserves for energy instead of relying on a continual intake of carbohydrates for energy. This has previously been known as a “ketogenic diet” due to the process of inducing ketosis.

Ketosis is a state where the body converts fat into ketones that the brain can use for fuel when glucose (carbohydrates) is in short supply.  

This is a totally natural process and there are no pills, injections or any other unnatural supplements required – the diet consists of eating sufficient amounts of the good, nutritious, wholesome real food i.e. the right foods – it is not a starvation diet (starvation diets work to lose weight but only for a while; most people gain more weight after going on a starvation diet, due to them having deprived their bodies of nutrients and proper food on a starvation diet)

This is why the low carb lifestyle is the most natural, safe, and successful lifestyle diet on the planet!

It works by allowing one’s own body to regulate its food and nutritional intake naturally – the human body is a miracle of science, and is amazing at controlling weight loss and optimum health if not continually bombarded by carbohydrates!
