  • What Does Low Carb Actually Mean | Atkins Low Carb Diet
    latter part of the nineteenth century the term Banting suddenly took off The reason An obese English undertaker had hit upon something Perhaps both his suit size and profession gave him reason to reflect on his own mortality whatever the motivation he decided to write a warning to the public He wrote of the need to start following a diet that cut out bread potato beer butter milk and sugar the staples of the day He was advocating cutting out carbs Back then had he written cut out the carbs almost nobody would have known what he meant Now we would all know it means something has to be whittled out of the diet but what exactly Does it mean cutting out puddings not having meat or having the same few things over and over ad infinitum Well in short no Low Net Carbs The modern meaning of low carb is low net carbs or foods that are low in carbohydrates once their fibre and sugar alcohol content is taken into consideration And if that sounds like it s making things even more complex here s what it means Most meat shellfish and fish is very low in carb and high in fibre the net carb intake of such foods is virtually or often exactly zero Vegetables tend to be low in carbs especially salad vegetables while even full fat dairy products are low in net carbs Low fat dairy products are normally far higher in net carbs a discovery many find to be counter intuitive that the full fat option can be better than the reduced fat alternative That though is the case The reason is not that carbs are terrible of themselves However a sophisticated low carb diet such as Atkins turns your body from a carb burning machine to a fat burning one With a carb high diet and that s pretty much any typical western diet or meal plan your body has all the fuel it needs while barely touching the layers of fat Worse still because carbs are easily digested they do little to quell pangs of hunger shortly after a full carb rich meal the diner is hungry again However fats and protein take much longer to digest leading to far less snacking We have more on the science behind low carbs on the site including a look at the increasing number of tests that highlight the benefits of carb reduction Diet Sacrifice The term low carbs can however be a slight misnomer Most diets require sacrifices which are then kept to and there is a constant danger that lapsing will start a process that sees the good work undone With a modern low carb diet however there is an initial stage that requires a heavy carb reduction after which their intake increases as the dieter moves towards a diet for life Depending on the individual s metabolism and how they react to incremental additions of carbohydrate it is possible they will end with

  • Low Carb Diets | Atkins Low Carb Diet
    all figuring frequently an average daily carbohydrate intake for men can be as much as 330 grams On Atkins phase one it s recommended that you consume just 20g of carbs per day with 12 15g of those coming from Foundation Vegetables Induction is for a minimum of two weeks but it s safe to stay in this phase for many months if you have a lot of weight to lose This first phase involves quick safe weight loss and you can often make serious progress towards your target in the first fortnight Phase two is where you add carbs back in 5g increments until you are about 14lbs from your goal weight This allows you to assess which carbs you can tolerate and in what amounts In phase three you add carbs back in 10g increments with even more variety until you have maintained your goal weight for one month Finally phase four is to maintain your new healthy weight with a personally tailored carb intake that you will arrive at naturally Many people are concerned about how to deal with cravings but in our experience creating a carefully tailored diet can help you beat the natural desire to binge and make sure your hard work remains intact How a low carb diet affects your body Rather than starving your body a low carb diet simply changes the way it works and stops you from being affected by hunger pangs Blood sugar levels are stabilised as your insulin is not constantly being spiked by high carb sugary foods and this also controls hunger and cravings Instead of using carbs for energy the body becomes a fat burning machine Normally the fat in your diet is something you need to burn off but with Atkins it replaces carbs to become

    to get weight off quickly and then maintain it but perhaps also the method that needs most explaining Cutting fat to lose weight is obvious unfortunately it doesn t tend to work research by Stanford University proving that low carbs is the way to go for weight loss if you want weight to come off and stay off Having a low carb diet works not so much because the carbs are bad in themselves more that their presence gives the body an easy out With a carb rich diet and that s most diets in the developed world the body will use glucose to get all the energy it needs meaning that any fat in a diet is a potential problem Anything not burnt off leading to greater weight loss The only option is to cut more fat from the diet leading to short term weight loss but leaving the dieter hungry and prone to returning to previous habits Low carb weight loss instead seeks to change the body s metabolic behaviour essentially turning it into a fat burning machine With carbohydrates cut the body s only option is to burn fat The low carbohydrate approach also allows the dieter to eat foods that would be off limits in many diets full fat cheese steaks fish seafood and more These become the building blocks of an effective diet and importantly a diet that can be maintained enjoyably to make sure any weight lost remains off for life Sophisticated Low Carb Weight Loss Programmes In a sophisticated low carb weight loss programme such as Atkins where net carbs carbs minus fibre and sugar alcohol are calculated the weight loss comes in several phases If there is a lot of weight to be lost a first induction phase will cut carbs down to 20 grams a day a tenth of normal consumption At this stage weight can fly off up to 15 pounds in just two weeks This induction phase is completely safe and so can be continued to get closer to the target weight equally as what would only be a dream weight with different diets speeds into view later stages see carbohydrates added back to the diet Five grams a week at first 10 grams a week in phase three As the target weight approaches the pace of weight loss drops but the diet becomes ever more varied This is to establish phase four lifelong maintenance and if that sounds restrictive it s anything but It s the foods you ve chosen perfectly in keeping with your body so that you don t have cravings feel energised and don t put on weight Cravings for sugary snacks are a thing of the past Does low carb weight loss involve some sacrifices Yes especially at first but if you are going to cut down on some foods is it not better that it s bread pasta and sweet drinks than meat seafood or dairy products After all home many times have

    the tendency of leaving the dieter hungry even if they stick with it long enough to get near their target the post diet tendency is then to snack binge and return to previous habits Any good work is undone Take a different approach with a low carbohydrate diet A Low carbohydrate diet is a reaction to this problem a desire to find a different approach that makes weight loss enjoyable and for life Low carbohydrate diets work not by cutting fat but by changing the body s energy source Out at least in part go carbohydrates forcing the body to change from using glucose as a quick energy fix to instead using stored fat The body naturally becomes a fat burning machine Research shows not only does this lead to weight being lost more quickly and safely but that it is also maintainable The changes are lifelong without feeling restrictive With a low carbohydrate diet it is possible to eat until satisfied and lose weight at a rate of up to 15 pounds in two weeks The early phase of low carbohydrate diets like Atkins limit carbohydrates to 20 grams a day less than 10 of the average intake But what the dieter loses in processed bread pasta and potatoes they can more than make up for with meat fish poultry seafood cheese vegetables and more During this early phase the dieter quickly moves towards their target weight As they near their target they start adding carbohydrates back into their diet in working through the four phases of the plan until reaching a stage where they maintain their ideal weight with a balanced range of ingredients What they end with is their desired weight a diet tailored to their perfect level of carbohydrate consumption and a balanced range of ingredients
