But there are two major problems with using a conventional low carb approach.
The first is that when you use a conventional low carbohydrate diet you do not provide your organism with everything it needs to function properly.
Hunger and cravings for carbohydrates is the second major problem. At least, it is a problem for long term weight loss results.
In reality, it is simply your organism forcing you to consume the nutrient that it needs.
With conventional low carb approaches, it is only a matter of time until you throw in the towel and run to the food store to buy a bag filled with carbs.
LOW CARB DIETS IGNORE YOUR BODY’S REQUIREMENTS
To function properly your body needs moderate amounts of high quality carbohydrates, lean protein and good dietary fats. With a conventional low carb approach this gets thrown out the window for some reason.
Since complex carbohydrates are the most preferred fuel source for you organism, lowering your daily carb intake will always lead to a drop in your energy level.
Processing large amounts of protein also puts a lot of stress on your body, and people that have heart problems must stay away from high protein intakes all together.
To help your digestion system to process the excess protein you must make sure to consume plenty of water.
Dehydration is one of the negative consequences of consuming large amounts of protein and you must make sure to supply your organism with plenty of water on a daily basis while following any low carb approach.
LOW CARB APPROACHES WILL ALWAYS INCREASE YOUR APPETITE
An increase in appetite and a massive desire to consume carbohydrates is what most people experience while following low carb diets.
In fact, these carb cravings are what cause everyone to give up using this technique and run to the store to buy large amounts of processed carbs made up of white flour and/or white sugar.
This will lead to weight gain immediately and since your body has learned to burn mostly protein and fat for energy, it will not be able to process carbohydrates as efficiently as in the past.
This will cause additional unwanted boy fat gain, and when it is all said and done you will end up in a worse situation than when you started the low carb approach.
From my experience I have never seen anyone create long term results using a conventional low carbohydrate diet and really doubt that I ever will.
It just simply goes against our desire and our body’s requirement to have a moderate carbohydrate intake on a daily basis.
Manipulating your nutrient intake can be effective only when you use a moderate approach. And this is what my low carb technique uses to accomplish long term weight loss.
It is always to your advantage to lose unwanted body fat really slow, at about one pound of body fat per week. When you try to lose more, the chances of failure increase ten-fold.
