How to Get Rid Of Belly Fat With A Low Carbohydrate Diet
By: Irabor Mark and Mike Keto
Carbohydrates have often been singled out as the single largest cause of various physiological problems. These nutrients, though they are a primary source of energy for the body, are also responsible for adding to the sugar content in the blood.
Most carbohydrates get readily converted into sugars and stay in the body till they are used. If the person does not exercise well, then these sugars can remain in the blood and cause other problems, weight gain being the least significant of them. The Ketogenic diet is based on the theory that by reducing carbohydrates in the daily diet, a person can live a healthier life.
Low carbohydrate diets (or no carbohydrate diets) are weight loss options that restrict the amount of carbohydrates ingested by a dieter, while increasing the amounts of proteins and fats eaten. Different diet options allow the consumption of different amounts of carbohydrates on a daily basis. The principle behind the low carbohydrate diet is that carbohydrates result in an increase in blood sugar level as they are metabolized by the body.
This results in a reciprocal rise in insulin levels. Insulin controls the blood sugar levels but also causes fat deposition. Low carbohydrate ingestion results in less insulin production by the pancreas and therefore less fat deposits in the fat storing cells.
By restricting the “bad” carbohydrates in the diet such as white refined rice, bread, pastas and potatoes as well as sweet desserts, those who support this diet suggest weight loss will occur. Many supporters also encourage eating of “good” carbohydrates by eating foods such as vegetables and certain fruits. Many fruits spike glucose so caution is advised on which fruits to consume. Let whole foods and vegetables be the major supplier of daily carbohydrates and eliminate as many processed foods as possible.
The Keto Diet is a Fat Burning Beast. It’s high healthy fat intake with little to no carbohydrates as a proven weight-loss plan.
The three sources of energy the body consumes are through carbohydrates, protein and fat. The goal for rapid weight weight-loss in the Keto Diet is to – as much as possible – eliminate carbohydrates, consume moderate proteins and increase high healthy fats.
The major use of carbohydrates by the body is to produce energy and the restrictions on carbohydrate ingestion can lead to lower energy levels if not replaced with the high fats and moderate proteins. Exercise and stress reduction is an essential element as well. The Keto lifestyle is proven successful when fully implemented. Many weight loss programs focus their programs on modified forms of the low carbohydrate diet.
If you’re serious about shedding your weight, losing that ugly belly fat, and building lean muscle definition, then you must embrace the Keto lifestyle by addressing the body, mind and spirit.
