Low Carb Dieting

Atkins®, Sugar Busters®, Carbohydrate Addicts Diet®, and every other low carb diet works the same way.

Low Carb Diet: It’s Insulin Control Too

Insulin plays a very important part in a low carb diet. Insulin is created by your body in relation to the carbohydrates you consume. The carbohydrates turn into glucose which is stored in you muscles and later in fat for your body to use as energy in times of fasting (like between meals), in strenuous activity, etc.,

When you eat starch, or carbohydrates they are converted to glucose. This causes your body to create insulin. Insulin is the key that opens up the door in your muscles for storage of glucose for times when you need it. When you eat fat and/or protein they are not converted into glucose. Insulin is not needed by your body to process the protein so it is not created. Since it is not created, it is not transported thru your body to be stored. Most of the protein and fat is simply passed thru your body and eliminated when you go to the toilet. 

Low Carb Dieting Controls Your Insulin

Low carbohydrate diets are all based on controlling insulin in your body by controlling the amount carbohydrates you consume.

There is a reason for this. Insulin is the carrier of energy, and fats to your muscles and organs. Insulin is created when you eat carbohydrates. No carbohydrates no insulin. High carbohydrates, high insulin.

The key to remember is that it is not just a diet, you are changing your eating habits forever.

At first you will go thru withdrawal of high carbohydrate foods and snacks you used to count on. You know things like potato chips, candy, cake, ice cream, breads, pasta, etc.

That is NOT to say you can not have them, but you will severely limit your intake of them. Your body needs some carbohydrates to function in a healthy manner. To much of one thing is not good.

What About Sugar and Artificial Sweeteners?

The creation of insulin leading to the storage of glucose rather than burning the protein you eat is why alternative non carbohydrate sweeteners are recommended on low carbohydrate diets.

If you use aspartame, it has maltodextrin. That is a carbohydrate. In fact, most sweeteners are laced with carbohydrates like maltodextrin. So read the labels and make sure thee is no maltodextrin in your sweetener of choice.

A good way to cut down on sugar and artificial sweeteners is to use JAJA Stevioside™ and Honey Stevia Leaf™ powder. Both do not cause a rise in blood glucose levels. Both are carbohydrate free making them perfect for low carbohydrate diets. They are both perfectly safe. They are 100% natural.

They are sold in the USA as dietary supplements rather than as food additives. This is due to some reason known only to the US FDA. In fact the US FDA has an import alert about stevia and stevioside.

Since they are not affected by heat, cold, acidic or alkaline solutions, many people ask if you can bake or cook with them. The FDA states in it’s import alert

“…Stevioside, has reportedly been approved for use in foods in Brazil and Japan. The product is used in these countries as a table-top sweetener in virtually all food commodities…..Stevioside is reportedly 250-300 times sweeter than sugar and contributes no calories to the diet.”

&lduot;Stevia leaves and Stevioside have been offered for entry both in bulk and in finished products. Examples of products detained because of Stevia include teas, drinks, seafood, fruits, vegetables, and candies.”

In many countries around the world such as Japan, Brazil, Paraguay, China, South Korea, and others they are sold as sweeteners. In the USA for some reason known only to the FDA, they are onmlu allowed to be sold as “Dietary supplements.”

Consider Fruits And Vegetables

The next thing to look at is high carbohydrate fruits and starchy vegetables. These will also be limited.

While at first it seems that your low carbohydrate diet leaves you nothing to eat, you will find that you have plenty to eat.

Fresh green salad, all sorts of fish and meats. Cheeses, and many other things. When going on a low carbohydrate diet, you do not care about the amount of fat you consume. You care about the amount of carbohydrates you consume.

Ideas of “Unlimited Foods” When Lowcarbing

Alfalfa sprouts, bamboo shoots, brussels sprouts, celery, green beans, kohlrabi, broccoli, cauliflower, any green leafy vegetable, any meat without sugar (try and stay away from processed meats like sausage, bacon, etc..), all fish and shelll fish, cheese, tofu, BUtter, Margarine, Regular Mayonasie (stay away from low fat), any oil (sunflower, safflower, coconut, peanut, corn, vegetable, etc.). Of course lots of water. This list is NOT all encompassing, there are items that are not on it that are no or low carbohydrate

You can be very strict and have a very small tiny amount of carbohydrates in each meal or you can work a program where you consume the entire days carbohydrates at a single meal. In that case you would want to balance portion size.

For example, if you were following a program that gave you the vast majority of carbs at one meal, you may have say meat the size of your fist, and an equal amount of carbohydrates (yes, anything you want) the size of your fist, and an equal amount of green vegetables. But you have to eat all the meat not just the carbs.

Examples of High Carb Fruits and Vegetables

Breads, Grains, Cereals. Ice Cream, low fat ricotta cheese, non-dairy creamers, yogurt, apples, cherries, bananas, pineapple, all baked goods, Vegetables like beets, squash, zucchini, corn, peas, potatoes, carrots, fuit juice, chips, pasta, rice. This list is NOT the full list, but enough to give you an idea.
