Is a Low Carb Diet a Healthy Way of Life?
Part One | Part Two | Part Three | Part Four

 

But is the Low Carb Diet a healthy way of life?

In the low carb lifestyle it isn't necessary to count calories. You can eat as much as you want - whenever you want. You still shouldn't over-stuff yourself, though. That is never a healthy way to live. Some people are metabolically resistant. In a case like this, reducing total food intake may help to stimulate or maintain consistant weight loss. Still, it's the carbohydrates - not the calories which must be kept low.

Since on a low carbohydrate diet you are eating fats and oils, you're rarely ever hungry. In general, foods high in fat are very satisfying. Eating high levels of fat will actually cause you to burn fat faster than if you were fasting! During a fast, your body goes into starvation mode. This is a very high efficiency state of metabolism. It actually slows down weight loss. A high fat diet combined with very low amounts of carbohydrates tells your body it isn't starving, and your metabolism maintains a normal level. While consuming fat is a requirement for a healthy diet, limit consumption of trans-fats like margarine. Use real butter. It's a good fat. Good fats are found in olive oil, flax seed oil, canola oil, and oils found in nuts.

Is it healthy? On a low carb diet, you can lose weight consistantly, lower your insulin levels, lower cholesterol, lower blood pressure, and stabilize your blood sugar (great for diabetics). "What about fruits and vegetables", you ask? Since you'll be eating less of these, it's important to take a good full-spectrum multi vitamin and fiber supplement. But aren't these good to take anyway? You bet...

Have you been consistantly subjected to a diet high in sugar or refined carbohydrates. Your body recognizes only one carbohydrate -- sugar. All carbohydrates you eat, except fiber, are converted into sugar. Eating a diet that's 70% carbohydrate means that most of what you eat is sugar. That type of diet is unbalanced. The purpose of a low-carb diet is to bring your body chemistry and insulin sensitivity back into balance. In order to accomplish this, you'll need to eat a diet that is unbalanced in the opposite direction of they way you've been eating all your life.

Once the weight is gone, and your blood chemistry, blood pressure, and energy levels are back in the normal range, then you may be able to start adding some more complex carbohydrates back into your diet. By eating a moderate a

Why do people experience incredible weight loss on a juice fast?

Before that question can be answered, we have to understand what ‘juice fasting’ is about.

Juice fasting is about abstaining from solid food, for a period of time, while supplying your body with the most nutritious drinks on this planet. By providing essential vitamins and minerals, the juice can actually jump-start the body’s fat-burning mechanisms. One glass of freshly-made fruit or vegetable juice provides you with the equivalent vitamins, minerals, enzymes, amino acids and chlorophyll you would get by eating several pounds of raw fruits and vegetables.

Most of us have heard how thousands are losing up to 10 pounds in 2 days on the best-selling Hollywood 48-Hour Miracle Diet in which you simply juice fast on bottled (dead) juice for 2 days. Well, juice fasting is a healthier version of the Hollywood Diet because you can fast longer than 2 days while supplying your body with live enzymes and nutrient-rich fresh fruit and vegetable juices.

Dr. Shelton, a great advocate of fasting, wrote "The weight lost by overweight patients in the early days of a fast is astounding. I have seen losses of five and six pounds a day for the first few days. A woman who fasted in the Health School in January and February of 1950 lost twenty-five pounds in the first two weeks.
