A low-carb diet is low in carbohydrates, primarily found in sugary foods such as pasta and bread. Instead, you eat whole foods including natural proteins, fats and vegetables.
Studies show that low-carb diets result in weight loss and improved health markers. These diets have been in common use for decades and are recommended by many doctors. What makes this way of losing weight unique is that there’s usually no need to count calories or use special products. All you need to do is to eat whole foods that make for a complete, nutritious and filling diet.
This way of eating addresses the hormonal process by which our bodies store and break down fat. The breakdown and storage of fat is controlled by the hormone insulin. If this is chronically high the body is in a fat storage mode and burning fat is prevented. This program addresses this issue by changing the diet in a way that allows the level of insulin to drop, thus encouraging the body to burn fat. Chronically high insulin level is referred to as insulin resistance (or Hyperinsulinemia) and it is not just a problem for trying to lose weight, but is implicated in many common chronic health conditions. By addressing your weight and the underlying condition of Insulin Resistance via Low Carb, you are potentially reducing your risk of suffering from our most common killers.
“Hyperinsulinemia (high insulin) adversely affects almost all degenerative diseases. That includes coronary artery disease, hypertension, cancer, stroke, diabetes, of course obesity, autoimmune disorders, and mental disease and decline”Dr Ron Rosedale
