- Although low carb diets have received plenty of skepticism from many experts, people who have tried it report of the benefits they receive from it
- Based on certain studies and clinical reports, going on a low carb diet has plenty of benefits on the body
- For those who want to try it, there are some unexpected health benefits it has on the human body
Going on a low carb diet is trendy these days. Aside from the fact that it's easier to do than some other diets, there are also plenty of health benefits once you decide to lower your carb and sugar intake.
Take a look at what a low carb diet can do for your body:
1. Reduces appetite
Because your body will decrease its sugar intake, the lower blood sugar level will help keep your cravings at bay. Dr. Burrows says, “When we are not on a sugar roller coaster from processed carbohydrates, most people make better food choices because they are not looking for their next hit of food.”
2. Increases energy level
At the start of a low carb diet, one might feel dizzy, confused, and lacking energy. This means that your body is changing it's energy source from glucose to fat. Once you break through this stage, you'll feel more energetic since fat is a more sustainable form of energy source than sugar.
3. Lowers blood sugar
Obviously, since your body's sugar intake becomes lower by the day, your blood sugar levels will improve and could help prevent diabetes in the future.
4. Boosts mood
Some studies show that due to the increased intake of healthy fats and low levels of sugar, the brain's functions improves and produces the right chemicals to help keep a person feeling happier.
5. Improves liver function
A fatty liver is often caused by type 2 diabetes. With a lower carb and sugar intake, the excess fat in your body is then used as fuel and is therefore eliminated.
Whatever your decision may be, it is always important to keep yourself healthy whether you're on a low carb diet or not.
At the end of the day, it is always better to seek a professional's help to see what kind of lifestyle would be best suited for you.
