Understanding Low Carb Dieting and hCG
In 1972, Robert Atkins started a diet revolution when he introduced the Atkins Low Carbohydrate Diet. His diet went against all the accepted diet methods at the time, and created quite a bit of controversy, some of which still exists. Fortunately, since then, there have been numerous studies and trials showing that the low carbohydrate method, IF DONE RIGHT, is a valuable tool in the weight loss world.If Done RightIt should be noted, that by simply following a low carbohydrate diet for an extended period of time, you may not get the results you want. Why? The body is adaptive to anything we do to it. If we eat low carb, low fat, low protein, or low everything, eventually the body will compensate for the loss or increase of whatever it is getting or not getting. This is the problem that Dr. Atkins ran into with the Atkins Diet. We now know that the key to successful dieting is learning how to control this basic function.How to Control the “Control” SystemIt should be mentioned again that by simply following a low carbohydrate diet for an extended period of time, you may not get the results you want, especially as you get leaner and leaner. The body has a regulatory system that allows it to adjust calorie usage based on the total amount of available calories. Total calories can be broken into two types … 1) calories stored on the body as body fat, and 2) calories being consumed. The method the body uses to control the metabolic rate is based on a set of hormones. If calories are too low for too long, the body adapts by reducing fat loss hormones, thereby reducing the body’s overall fat burning power. Low Calories = Slow Metabolism. And yet, the most important nutrient responsible for keeping the metabolic rate roaring is carbohydrates. So what do we do?
