Low Carbohydrate Plans Require Consistency

Keep to Your Diet Low Carbohydrate Plans Require Consistency

What do you recommend as far as diet? Low carbohydrate plans such as Adkins have been popular for some time. These diet low carbohydrate will help you lose weight. The key is sticking to them for a period of time.

Variety is the key to the diet. Low carbohydrate foods exclude such staples as white bread, rice, and potatoes. Many people find that they can stick to a meat and vegetables only diet for a couple of weeks but begin to lose interest in the food thereafter. At that point, they begin to cheat on the plan. As a result, they gain all of their weight back – and more.

The key to any plan is to stick to the diet. Low carbohydrate plans are no different. In fact, low carb diets require an even greater ability to stay on plan because they rely on your body going into ketosis.
Ketosis is where the levels of ketone bodies are elevated in the blood. Ketone bodies are used by the blood cells as an alternative to glucose. So, Adkins and other such diets, starve the body of glucose requiring it to switch to ketones. This is measured by seeing if your body is in ketosis.

Therefore, if you switch from a diet high in carbohydrates (which are found in white, starchy foods) to one which is heavy in fats and proteins, you force your body into ketosis. In this state, your body will begin burning fat at a fast rate.

However, if you introduce carbohydrates back into the diet, your body falls out of ketosis. This means that your body begins to burn glucose instead of ketones. Even one day of falling off the wagon will destroy your diet. Low carbohydrate plans depend on your being consistent with the food you eat.

Low carbohydrate diets do not restrict the protein and fat that you eat. Therefore, eggs and bacon are fine for breakfast – but skip the toast and hash browns. Salads with meats, cheeses, and hard boiled eggs are a lunchtime staple. Dinner features meat, vegetables, and salads. Snacks such as nuts, beef jerky, and cheese sticks are acceptable. In later stages of the diets, fruits may be introduced in limited quantities.
Refined sugars are always off limits. You shouldn’t eat any potatoes, white bread, rice, or other white carbohydrates while on Adkins or other low carb diet. Fortunately, a number of food manufacturers have come out with low carb product replacements so that dieters following these programs can occasionally have pancakes, muffins, and the like without breaking their diets.

It is recommended that you stay away from low fat processed foods when on this diet. Low carbohydrate meals require that you keep all forms of carbs out – and many of the low fat processed foods such as salad dressing replace the fat with sugars. Besides, on this diet, fat is not a dirty word.

Adkins, Power Protein and the like are pretty good if you have to diet. Low carbohydrate plans let you eat until you feel full and provide a full range of nutrients.
