carbohydrates seems to be one of the best ways to go studies have shown that
diets that are low in carbs are typically more effective than diets that
are low in fat at least in the short term but an effective diet is like an
effective sports play you can’t just rush in blindly and hope for the best so
how are some ways in which you can optimize the effectiveness of a low carb
lifestyle nutrition expert Chris Gunnar’s of Health Line outlines eight
of the most popular ways you can approach cutting carbs from your diet number one
a typical low-carb diet while Gunners states that a typical
low-carb diet is a loosely defined term a simple diet that places a focus on
restricting your intake of carbohydrates can be an effective way to manage your
weight usually this type of carb restricted diet involves a meal plan
that is low in carbs but high in protein making use of high protein food sources
such as meat fish eggs nuts and seeds as well as the usual staples of fruit
veggies and healthy fats foods to avoid in a carb restricted diet are things
such as grains potatoes and junk food that’s high in sugar including soft
drinks your recommended daily amount of carbs on a diet like this can vary
depending on your weight loss goals how much weight do you want to lose and how
fast do you want to lose it while someone who wants to maintain their
current weight can probably make use of 100 to 150 grams of carbohydrates per
day someone who wants to see significant results fast may want to limit
themselves to less than 50 grams of carbs in these cases you’ll want to
avoid certain fruits that contain higher concentrations of carbs and limit your
fruit intake to berries that are low on the glycemic index number 2 ketogenic
diet if you’ve already done some research into low carb dieting options
you’ve probably heard words like keto getting thrown around from time to time
a ketogenic diet or keto diet is a diet that is very low in carbs but high in
fats causing your body to undergo a metabolic state known as ketosis when
under the effects of ketosis your body’s insulin levels drop dramatically and
your body releases large amounts of fatty acids from its natural fat stores
from there many of these fatty acids are
transferred from your liver and converted into ketones which are
water-soluble molecules that can cross the blood-brain barrier and supply
energy to your brain as a result ketones effectively start
replacing carbohydrates as your brains primary source of fuel while your body
still manages to produce enough glucose for your brain via a process called
gluconeogenesis a ketogenic diet is typically made up of foods that are high
in protein as well as fat and your daily intake of carbs is limited to under 50
grams per day for some diets this carb limit may even drop as low as 30 or even
20 grams per day instead sorry fellow pasta lovers other variations of the
keto diet such as the targeted ketogenic diet or cyclical ketogenic diet allow
you to sneak in extra carbs on certain days or in certain circumstances such as
around workouts number three low carb high fat a low carb high fat diet or LC
FH is similar to the previous two meal plans we mentioned but with a greater
emphasis placed on the consumption of whole and unprocessed foods unprocessed
foods sometimes referred to as real foods are foods that typically consist
of a single ingredient and do not feature any human processing or the
addition of chemical additives these foods are usually praised for being
highly nutritional low in sugar and better for the environment popular
choices for unprocessed foods to include in an lchf diet include meats fish
shellfish eggs vegetables nuts berries and dairy products in lchf diets
suggested carb intake can be anywhere between twenty to a hundred grams of
carbohydrates per day number four paleo diet one of the most
popular ways to cut carbs worldwide is the Paleo diet named after the
Paleolithic era of human history the Paleo diet encourages you to eat the
same foods that were available to some of our earliest ancestors before the
introduction of game changers such as agriculture or the Industrial Revolution
hey Lizzie can you pass me another one of those
glyptodont steaks sorry that joke might be too much of a thinker any
paleontologists in the audience with us tonight the main idea behind the Paleo
diet is that it supposedly improves your health by returning your diet to the
foods that we as a species evolved to eat making use of the adaptations that
we Homo sapiens developed in order to maximize the nutritional potential of
certain foods smaller studies have also linked the Paleo diet to other health
benefits such as weight loss reduced blood sugars and a lessened chance of
heart disease the Paleo diet emphasizes meats seafood eggs fruits veggies tubers
nuts and seeds and cuts out processed foods foods with added sugars grains
legumes and dairy products painting on cave walls and forging crude stone tools
to eat with are considered optional number five the Atkins diet the Atkins
diet is a form of low carb meal plan that involves cutting as many carbs as
possible while eating as many high-protein or high fat foods as your
heart and stomach desire the diet itself is split into four phases starting with
an induction phase where you limit yourself to under 20 grams of carbs for
at least two weeks followed by slowly letting healthy carbs back into your
diet in small increments once you’ve achieved your weight loss goals you
enter what’s known as the maintenance phase where you are free to eat as many
healthy carbs as your body can tolerate without gaining back the weight that you
managed to lose while this diet originally received a lot of flack for
being supposedly dangerous current research indicates that the Atkins diet
should be perfectly safe as long as you’re still meeting your recommended
daily intake of fiber number six Iko Atkins want to get in on the Atkins
action but without all the meaty parts well you’re in luck a vegan variation of
the Atkins diet also exists referred to as eco Atkins the Eco Atkins diet offers
up a number of plant-based alternatives to meet your high protein and fat
related needs such as gluten soy nuts and plant oils in an eco Atkins diet
about 25 percent of your daily calories are derived from carbs the remainder is
30% protein and 45% from fats as a result you’ll notice that the Eco Atkins
diet is hiring carbs than the non vegan version of Atkins but still contains
fewer carbs than a typical vegan diet all things considered that sounds like a
pretty fair compromise number seven the zero carb diet so
you’ve decided it’s time to fully commit no nonsense no excuses no compromise
carbs you better lose my number because you are dead to me
except cutting carbs out of your life entirely might actually be a really
really bad idea people who subscribe to a low-carb diet restrict themselves to
only animal-based foods such as meat fish eggs and animal fats like butter
and lard with the exception of some spices this all carnivore diet leaves no
room for plant material whatsoever anyone who spent five seconds looking at
a food pyramid in elementary school can see how an all meat diet could be
potentially dangerous to humans who are typically omnivores by nature indeed
you’ll want to tread with caution here as very few recent studies provide any
concrete evidence that a no carb diet is safe or sustainable most glaringly a
completely animal-based diet leaves you with no access to vitamin C or fiber to
things that are very very important for the human body maintaining healthy
weight is important but do you know what’s more important not getting scurvy number eight low carb Mediterranean diet
as the name implied a Mediterranean diet is a meal plan based on the traditional
foods prepared in countries like Italy and Greece earlier in the 20th century
research has indicated that the Mediterranean diet is considered
healthier than a typical diet of Americans from the same time period and
the diet itself has been linked to both weight loss and reduced chance of
diseases such as heart disease and diabetes a Mediterranean diet limits
high carb foods such as grains and instead of the usual staples of low carb
dieting we’ve come to recognize from this list it emphasizes fatty fish over
red meat and olive oil instead of fats like butter that reminds me as soon as
this video is done I need to go google some recipes for a low-carb spanakopita
