Low carb diet

Ridiculously easy low-carb recipes!

(And yes, they are delicious too)

What is all the frenzy with low-carb diets?

Low carb or low carbohydrate diet is a diet that limits your intake of carbohydrates and introduces more of fats and proteins in your everyday meals.

While the mention of “more fats” may straight-away send a lot of readers into a state of shock (many of you might be feeling personally scandalized), the truth is that fats is not your enemy.

The demonization of fats as the major cause of obesity and other chronic illnesses (read diabetes and heart conditions) remains largely unwarranted.

Recent studies have revealed that it the sugar (glucose) content in your bloodstream that is the real culprit here.

And what is the main source of glucose?

Yes, you guessed it right – it’s the carbs.

Even though carbs, just like fats and proteins are an important part of a well-balanced diet (of course, we eat food to primarily derive energy from it), our modern diet is based on the foundations of unhealthy levels of carbs, stripped off other essential nutrients.

Thus a deliberate effort towards lowering your overall carb-intake will not only aid weight loss (unused glucose in your body gets stored as fats) but will also supplement your health with other benefits such as:

  • It increases satiety and reduces the frequency of hunger pangs. Ergo, you snack and binge less.
  • People on a low-carb diet have shown to lose more visceral fats (fats that surround your organs). Thus this will automatically help you get rid of the stubborn paunch.
  • Low-carb dieters have controlled cholesterol and blood-pressure levels.
  • This diet pattern increases the HDL or “good cholesterol” in your body. This protects you against inflammation and chronic ailments.
  • You are consuming lesser carbs as a result of which your blood sugar level and insulin are also under check. This means reduced risk of diabetes – one of the most common ailments in the world.
  • Did you know that your brain is majorly made of fats? A low-carb diet guides you into eating healthy fats (nuts, seeds, and fish) or omega 3 fatty acids which have a therapeutic effect on your brain.

So why wait any further?

Dive into the world of low-carb diets with these amazingly simple yet tasty recipes!

Let your taste buds be the judge!
