The Best Way to Use Low-Carb Control
by: Melissa White
The benefits of low-carb dieting are easy
to see and make clear why so many are choosing a low-carb way of life.
For example, there isn't any counting of calories or measuring portions.
In addition you do not have to cut out all the food you enjoy. You can
continue eating burgers, cheese, and bacon. Putting yourself on an
eating plan for most people is generally complicated and yet the low-carb
diet plan is simple enough for anyone. Cut your carbs down and watch the
No more waiting around for your diet to
show results. You will be able to see the results right away. Because of
the very simple fact that the amount of calories you consume does
matter, by cutting down on your carb intake you will be at the same time
cutting out a large amount of calories without trying directly.
Keep yourself in check. As you are
minimizing the amount of carbohydrates you are eating you want to make
sure that your body is getting enough nutrients. When you are following
your low-carb regime here are a few things to keep in mind:
First, make sure you maintain a good
fiber intake. You can do this while still sticking to your low-carb
plan. Keep away from those bad carbs, such as the ones consumed from
sugars. Have the low levels of carbohydrates that you do eat come from
whole grains or vegetables. In fact these good carbs that you do choose
to eat also aids in weight loss, this is a bonus. Your plan might change
names from the low-carb eating plan to the low-carb/good-carb eating
Second, try to minimize the amount of
saturated fat you consume. Some low-carb plans you may find are high in
saturated fats, one of the worst kinds of fats. They raise your LDL
cholesterol levels, which may put you at risk of heart disease.
While eating your low-carb diet, you can
reduce your saturated fats by choosing leaner protein sources such as
poultry, seafood, and lean pork and beef. Make sure you cut away all
visible excess fat on meets. Choose low fat or nonfat dairy products.
You should also replace butter with vegetable oils such as olive or
canola oil. Try to eat smaller portions of all these foods.
All in all, be smart with your food
choices and it will be to your benefit.
Fads fade for a reason. Like pet rocks, low-carb diets will disappear because they just don’t do anything worthwhile. The dropout rate is high – about 50 percent – because the diets are boring and are unpalatable to most people.

triglycerides, all of which are risk factors for coronary artery disease.
