Advantages of a Low Carb Diet

Advantages of a Low Carb Diet

In order to make the most of a low carb diet and ditch those carbs for good, you need to understand the advantages of a low carb diet. While fat is essential for your health, carbohydrates are not. Here are some of the main benefits of a low carb diet.

Advantages for the heart

Low carb diets have a beneficial impact on a whole host of heart disease risk factors. Specifically, they reduce triglycerides, which are a major risk factor for cardiovascular disease) and increase concentrations of HDL (known as the “good” cholesterol). Low carb diets also help with weight loss and blood sugar levels, both of which have an effect on the heart.

Advantages for blood sugar and insulin levels

Consuming carbohydrates has the biggest impact on our blood sugar levels and insulin levels. Restricting carbohydrates in our diet has a direct result in lowering our sugar levels and insulin needs. High sugar levels play a role in almost all chronic diseases, such as type 2 diabetes, dementia, cancer and cardiovascular diseases. By consuming fewer carbohydrates, blood sugars are controlled and insulin levels are minimized. This is incredibly beneficial for people with type one or two diabetes, and those with insulin resistance.

Advantages for hunger and weight loss.

Low carb diets increase satiety due to the balanced blood sugar levels they promote. Unlike diets that are high in carbohydrates, blood sugar and insulin spikes throughout the day are kept to a minimum. Scientific studies have also shown that people who follow a low carb diet suffer fewer cravings and are a lot less bothered by hunger. Without cravings and hunger pangs, maintaining a healthy weight or losing weight tends to be easier.
