What the diet without carbohydrates requires?

How carbohydrates are a type of macronutrients, which are found in almost every food and drink, limiting the amounts is very important. With industrially processed foods added are huge amounts of carbohydrates, either in the form of starch or sugar. Change of eating habits is the success of each individual, whether it comes to dieting or something else. Rejection of various snacks, candy, meat products from the regular diet is a great success today. We recommend everybody to try it. Avoid industrially processed food!!!

Fiber food contains carbohydrates in their natural form!!!

Natural sources of carbohydrates:
  • vegetables
  • fruits
  • cereals
  • milk
  • seeds
  • legumes
  • milk

The main driver, the engine, the fuel for our body consists of just carbohydrates. Sugars and starches during digestion are divided into simple sugars that are absorbed into the bloodstream, where they are known as glucose (blood sugar). Glucose then enters our cells thanks to insulin. One part of the blood sugar (glucose) body uses for energy, from breathing, walking or running, to any of the activities and the rest of glucose is additionally stored in the liver, other cells, muscles or as is often the case turns into fat.
Diet without carbohydrates is based on the theory that insulin is the most responsible for the formation of fat because it metabolizes the sugar. At the same sugar it is then used for energy even for fat. With low carbohydrate intake, the body is encouraged to secrete the insulin in smaller amounts and our bodies are further encouraged to burn reserves of it, e.g. excess fat. In this way we remove excess weight and recover our body. Also as previously mentioned diet without carbohydrates reduces risks for various diseases and health problems.

Behind a diet with low or no carbohydrates stands a theory that insulin is responsible for the formation of fat deposits because the body metabolizes the sugar that is used for energy in fat. Proponents of these diets with low-carb just see it as a decisive factor for healthy weight loss.  With fewer secretion of insulin, the body consumes stored reserves of fat, which in our case is crucial to losing weight and fat. This concept is present in Atkins diet, which we already wrote about on our blog, so read the text and if you haven’t done it already.
