You may not be suitable for “low-carbohydrate diet”!

 

You may not be suitable for “low-carbohydrate diet”! People with hypoglycemia should reduce their carbohydrate intake. Although you can eat some sugar when hypoglycemia occurs, to prevent the occurrence of hypoglycemia, you should reduce your carbohydrate intake. Quitting sugar is not easy, similar to quitting smoking and drinking.

You may not be suitable for "low-carbohydrate diet"!


Overweight and obesity are increasingly becoming a health threat, increasing people’s risk of cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases, diabetes, and cancer. Overweight and obesity are mostly caused by excessive diet-the body consumes too much energy and accumulates in the body, and less exercise makes energy consumption lack of ways.

 

Among the many ways to lose weight, many people advocate the method of “quitting carbon water to lose weight”, and voices of doubt are also coming. In the face of “side effects” such as hair loss, fatigue, and depression, people are discouraged. How to treat carbohydrates rationally?

 

What are carbohydrates?

Generally speaking, carbohydrates are mainly divided into two categories-starch and simple sugar. Starch is found in grains such as rice, noodles, lotus root, potatoes, and yam. Simple sugar is found in foods and food additives such as fruits, white sugar, and fructose syrup. Because cellulose is composed of glucose, the fiber in vegetables and fruits is also a kind of carbohydrate in the chemical aspect. But fiber cannot be digested, while starch is very easy to digest and absorb.

 

Carbohydrates are converted into glucose in the human body to bring energy to the body. But without carbohydrate, glucose can also be synthesized by the human liver. Excessive carbohydrate intake will cause blood sugar to rise and cause various complications. Therefore, a “low-carbon diet” came into being.

 

What is low-carbon ketone?

A low-carb diet requires a reduction in carbohydrate intake, but does not require fat and protein intake. The ketogenic diet is an extreme case of a low-carb diet, requiring a high-fat, non-carbohydrate, and low-protein diet. “Carbon-free” refers to not eating shaped carbohydrates, such as rice bread and other shaped carbohydrates can be consciously avoided, while carbohydrates hidden in vegetables are difficult to avoid, but the content is very small.

 

A low-carbon diet achieves weight loss by reducing calorie intake, thereby reducing the occurrence of metabolic diseases, such as diabetes and hypertension. The ketogenic diet is mainly used to treat rare diseases, such as refractory epilepsy, Alzheimer’s, and malignant tumors.

 

Everyone responds differently to ketosis. When the ketone body is high, some people will be very energetic, but some people will not. This is related to the body’s adaptation to this energy mode.

 

 

Who are not suitable for low-carbon ketosis?


If the body cannot break down and use fat well, and there are some genetic defects in lipid metabolism, such people are not suitable for low-carbon ketones. For most people, you can try low-carb first without reaching the stage of a ketogenic diet.


People with hypoglycemia should reduce their carbohydrate intake. Although you can eat some sugar when hypoglycemia occurs, to prevent the occurrence of hypoglycemia, you should reduce your carbohydrate intake. Quitting sugar is not easy, similar to quitting smoking and drinking.
