Losing weight with a low carb diet

By dave
Limiting carbohydrates from ones diet has been a successful way to lose weight. Most people who struggle to lose weight have done so all their life. They try many gimicks some safe and some not so safe. Some people only have a few pounds to lose, some have up to 100 or more pounds to lose. Some people do if for medical reasons.

Ninety percent of the popluation in North America would like to lose weight. Most are on the search for the quickest and easies way to trim that excess weight. Some many only want to lose 5 pounds, others want to lose 20, 50, 100, 200 pounds and even more. Low carb diets seem to be becoming the "fashionable" way to lose weight in recent years. Many are getting stressed over losing their excess weight which in turn is making it harder and harder to achieve their weight loss goals. Other have medicle reasons to lose excess fat, and sometimes end up using dangerous methods such as diet pills, medical procedures, and restricting food intake.

Dieting is an industry in itself. There are many diets out there, including the low carb diet. This diet works, but so do all diets, if followed the way it was meant to be followed. Sometimes we stray we may have a function to attend and the food that you are to eat is not available. Sometimes life gets in the way, the most important thing to remember when this happens there is the next day. Don't allow one mistake undo all the work you acheived prior to that one event. Wake up and continue like the night before never happened. Don't be upset with yourself. Always remember it isn't the once in a while episode that brought you where you are today, it is a life long change recognize, realize and let it go. Once we have come to that realization that is when are road to permanent weight loss will be achieved.

To be successful with this diet, you need to understand food groups, which ones to eat and which ones to avoid. Carbohydrates come in many forms, breads, rice, pasta, potatoes, flour, sugar the list goes on. Fruit is often not allowed due to the sugar content. Meal planning is simple with the low carb diets. There are protein shakes and bars on the market that can be purchased as meal replacements, just need to make sure the protein content is high and the carb content is low.

Most criticism of low carbohydrate dieting is based on the fact that the dieters will get most of their daily calories from meat, dairy and other high fat products. This can lead to high cholesterol and other problems related to a high intake of saturated fats. Medical advice is advised before starting this type of diet. Sometimes weight loss is good in the early stages but people cannot handle the restrictions in the longer term and start to deviate from the diet.

North America is country of convenience. We have all of our foods ready made for us. The problem most of those foods are very high in carbohydrates. Rice, pasta, potatoes are cheap foods and hence the main staple of all convenience foods, and of course the main staple in most households. Alcowhol is another high carbohydrate "food". Fast food places, burgers, and buns and fries, pasta with sauces. Most people become overweight simply because of convenience, with the busy life a quick trip to the drive thru to bring home dinner. To look it another way, by knowing what we can eat, there are lots of options with the low carb phenomenon. Who doesn't like beef, just skip the bun and fries, and have a nice green salad. There are many protein sources available, finding what you enjoy or what works the best for you. Low carb diets do work, but its not for everyone.

Want to really benefit from eating low carbs is to add a good body cleanse. Cleansing out the toxins from your body at least once a month will make a huge difference in losing weight. More of that in our next article on Body Cleansing.
