There’s been lots written about low carb and keto diets and many of these indicate an unnecessarily restrictive eating plan suitable for long term. The trick is to know your body’s unique carb tolerance. Here’s 5 good health reasons to discover your body’s unique carb tolerance and what that means in foods and drinks you like.
- Naturally reduces your appetite
Most diets are associated with deprivation and hunger. However, eating within your carb tolerance is exactly the opposite. No deprivation and no hunger! By limiting carbs to your body’s tolerance and replacing with optimal protein and the right amount of good fat sources, people end up feeling fuller and often end up eating fewer calories.
- Helps reduce fat from your tummy area
Visceral fat which accumulates around your tummy organs is associated with inflammation and insulin resistance (pre-diabetes). Reducing your carbohydrate load is effective at reducing this harmful abdominal fat storage and may reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes and heart disease.
- Optimises blood sugar and insulin levels
By reducing your carbohydrate to your body’s tolerance both blood sugar and insulin levels typically reduce to optimal levels. If you are currently on insulin medication you should talk to your doctor as medication may have to be reduced.
- May lower blood pressure
Eating within your body’s carbohydrate tolerance is a very effective way to reduce high blood pressure, which may reduce your risk of other lifestyle diseases like stroke.
- Metabolic Syndrome
Risk factors such as excess abdominal fat, elevated blood pressure, elevated fasting blood sugar levels, high triglycerides and low HDL cholesterol levels may reduce or even reverse following a carb tolerance eating plan.
