Why low Carb is good for you?

In general, if your diet is high in carbs then that will store as FAT. When you eat carbs, your blood sugar goes up and thats a fact. When blood sugar goes up the pancreas produces insulin. What carbs are required for your body are first stored in the muscle as glycogen and the balance carbs are stored as fat. Carbs get converted to sugar in your body and too much of it will store as fat.

Why extra Carbs make you put on Weight?

Most people don't associate having too much carbs as their result of putting on weight. Yes, extra carbs will make you gain weight. The logic is simple. More carbs is more sugar than what the body can take and that will lead to weight gain. Extra weight leads to OBESITY and that causes an insulin surge to your body when you eat refined cards like maida, potatoes, cornflour etc. As your body keeps going through insulin surges and drops, it gets insulin resistant. That causes pre DIABETES and then results in Diabetes and end result is HEART disease. So be careful what you put in your mouth. To check if you are eating too many carbs, check your stomach. Is it flat. If not there is a problem with your diet. Do a blood test and check the lipid profile and see your Triglyceride readings. If its above 100, you are consuming too many carbs. Cut the portion size and reduce overall cab intake by upping the PROTEIN and FAT in your diet.

Low Carbs and Diabetes

Low carb will create a very low demand on insulin. It will move your body metabolism from getting energy from FAT instead of sugar as carb levels are low. Even in the best of the leanest athletes they have enough stored fat to tap into. Net result is that you are lean and full of energy.

There are some who follow the KETOGENIC Low Carb diet where you consume less than 20 grams of carb per day. This is tough to follow. The next level is too consume MODERATE levels of Carbs between 20 to 50 grams per day. The slightly easier approach is to consume 50 to 100 grams of carbs per day. The key is to have good quality carbs and those with a low Glycemic Index. So for example you eat fruits like Berries, Strawberries, Watermelon, Peaches and Avocados and don't have Bananas, Mangoes etc which have a high GI. Consume vegetables like cucumbers, celery, lettuce, tomatoes, spinach which have a low GI.
