How Many Carbs Should I Eat?
Do you struggle with managing insulin resistance, metabolic syndrome, type 2 diabetes, the health of your cardiovascular system, weight loss/maintaining of a healthy weight, and more?
The answer to your problems could be in the low carbs diet.
The goal with this type of dieting is to minimize your sugar intake (especially refined and
processed carbs), and to get to the point where you burn your fat storage as a fuel for your body.
Because of the over-consumption of carbs, high levels of insulin are released, fat oxidation is turned off and the storing of fat is stimulated. This could lead to some serious health problems that no one wants to struggle with.
Low carbohydrate diets can vary in the amount of carbohydrates that are consumed. For example, some people choose a minimal reduction in the carbohydrates intake, whereas a moderate low carbs diet may aim for less than 100g carbs per day, a low carbs diet less than 50g per day, and a very low carbs (keto) diet less than 20g of carbs per day.
There is a debate whether a low carbs diet should be higher in protein or in fat. There is no easy answer to this question, but one thing that all agreed upon is that the high carbs and high-fat combination need to be avoided.
We are all unique, and there isn’t one universal diet that is good for everyone, so the personal approach is the best option.
Here are some of the factors to consider for beginners with low carb diets:
• Stay informed
• Just because something works for someone else, doesn't mean that it will work for you
• Consider your gut health
• Dietary diversity is the key
• Consult with the professional nutritionist
• Reduce refined and processed foods
• Reduce sugary foods, drinks, and snacks
• Eat healthy fats
No matter what diet you choose, dietary quality is necessary.
