The low carbohydrate diet is like becoming a trend at the present time. This diet seems so easy to do and not that challenging because someone is just recommended reducing their carbohydrate consumption. In fact, it is not that easy. There are some ‘terms’ that you need to follow. So, why is your low carbohydrate diet program is always unsuccessful? Maybe, here is the cause.
Why the low carbohydrate diet is unsuccessful?
Actually, there are some reasons for it. The first reason is that carbohydrate is the main energy source for our body. That is why; if our body is lack of carbohydrate, our metabolism system will be slower than the normal condition. In fact, to maximize the fat burner activity, our body metabolism has to be increased too.
The second reason is that the low carbohydrate diet triggers the hungry feeling for a long time. If this hungry feeling can be controlled, usually someone will eat more or the bigger portion of a food and it makes their weight is increased too. The worse thing is that if our body does not have the ‘fuel’ from the carbohydrate so that our body will take it from the muscle. In this case, the catabolism process of the muscle will be done when the muscle will experience the shrinkage.
How to handle it?
Well, it is an important question that needs to answer. We knew that carbohydrate is the main source of the calorie. To reduce the weight, the calorie absorbent has to be smaller or lower than the used calorie. However, it doesn’t mean that you have to not consume the carbohydrate at all. There are several things that you can do to guarantee the successfulness of this low carbohydrate diet and reduce your weight in a healthy way.
First, please make sure that your body gets enough carbohydrate absorbent. Whatever the kinds of diet methods that you do, you can insert the carbohydrate foods in your menu. Your body still needs it (the carbohydrate) as the main energy source. You can consume some healthy carbohydrate sources such as the red rice, cereal, and oatmeal. Those carbohydrate sources are even providing the more complete nutrition than the common white rice.
It is also a great idea to insert the high protein foods into your diet to help to maintain and prevent your muscle mass, repair the metabolism and your body function. The high protein and fiber diet is a really comfortable way to make you feel full at a longer time and it is also effective to decrease your weight. You can add the weight training and cardio in the middle of your routine to maximize the fat burner and increase the speed of your body metabolism.
Make your diet routine as a healthy activity that is fun to do every day. In other words, we can say that you may not make it as an obstacle or burned that can decrease your life quality especially to get the ideal body performance.
