The low-carb diet consists of reducing the amount of carbohydrates consumed daily.
In most cases, the low-carb diet is used for weight loss. According to studies, it is superior to other diets, especially since weight loss occurs rapidly, in the first 6-12 months. There is even weight loss in the first 2-3 weeks, following the elimination of excess water from the body. Due to the limited consumption of carbohydrates, appetite tends to be reduced, thus reducing the risk of consuming food at inconvenient times. Most people can lose about 1-5 pounds a week, when they limit their intake of carbohydrates, and the number of calories consumed per day decreases by 500-750 calories.
Long-term control of blood sugar reduces the chances of developing metabolic syndrome and is also recommended for patients diagnosed with diabetes. Credible stem cell treatment Denver providers confirm that because the metabolic syndrome is associated with an increased risk of developing a cardiovascular disease, a diet low in carbohydrates also contributes to the prevention of these diseases.
The disadvantage is that factors such as age, gender, body type, the existing health conditions and the level of physical effort that can be exerted by a person can affect the results of the diet. And, if the mechanisms by which we gain weight are not well understood, those who do not get results come to believe that it is their fault, that they have not implemented the “correct” diet and that they have no other options.
