What is Low Carb Diet? How Does it Work?

When we were young we heard in our biology classes that energy makes of calorie in and calorie out. To gain energy we consume calories and to use that energy we spend them as calories. This was and is the basic principle of calorie and energy.

Therefore, if you wish to lose weight then you need to spend more calories than you consume. For instance, 3600 calories make a pound. Hence, to lose a pound you should be a deficit of 3600 calories.

This deficit can happen anyway. Either you eat a low-calorie diet and thereby have less calorie and reduce weight. Or you can work out or spend more as energy resulting in a calorie deficit.

The former seems to be perfect for weight loss. It’s easy and you don’t’ have to work hard.

And carb is full of energy. We eliminate it we eliminate eating high calories. Don’t worry we will be able to tap a different energy source which will be discussed late.

Is Low Carb Diet Safe?

Did you know that our body does not have to consume carb?

Seems shocking to you, isn’t it? Unfortunately, that’s the truth. You don’t have to eat carb to survive or to stay fit and alert. In fact, its the opposite. When you decrease your intake of carb you become more alert and active than you were before.

This is actually a byproduct of low carb diet.

When you are low on carb, your body cannot use glucose as its primary energy source (as there is no carb consumed).

Your body turns to another energy source called ketones. Ketones are taken from the fat reserve of your body.

As you eat less in carb diet, the ketones get used up and so does the storage of your fat cells. In the end, you end up with a nice and ripped body.

Low Carb Diet Routine for 21 Days

Try this low carb diet routine for 21 days and you will notice significant changes in the way you think and move.

As soon as you wake have four or five organic and pasture raised eggs. These eggs need to be soft boiled or cooked. Do not overcook as the white will harden and it will make it harder to digest.

In the afternoon, eat 250 gms of red meat along with fat. Yes, don’t chop off the fat as you use to do. Fats are crucial in lowering weight and making this low carb diet work. If possible cook the red meat along with butter or lard. Throw in some vegetables of any kind. It doesn’t matter.

Vegetables will help flush your digestive tract. 

At night, eat any source of meat protein, like fish or meat. Or you can take eggs also. It really doesn’t matter.

Please remember that you don’t have to eat three times a day. This is not your usual diet plan. Eat only when you are hungry. This way you will consume fewer claories along with low carbs.
