Low Carbohydrate Diet Plan

To the body, whether you consume a spoonful of sugar, or take a bite out of an apple, it doesn’t matter. It all gets converted into sugar. As we have talked about earlier, our body burns sugar for energy.

What the low-carb diet (not as substantial as Atkin’s) suggested is that we limit the number of carbohydrates so our body doesn’t have a steady supply of them, and it begins to burn fat.

This plan does subscribe to the same school of thought that the Atkins Diet does, but it doesn’t go to the same lengths as the Atkins when it comes to limiting carbohydrate intake.

The idea of this diet is to create a sugar deficiency, so your body starts to burn your fat as a fuel, rather than the sugars. According to health experts, your body always burns the sugars before it starts burning fat. So it stands to reason that in order to get your body burning fat, you should limit your carbs.

One would think that this is the exact same thinking as the Atkins Diet, so why wouldn’t we have the same things to say about it? The reason for that is the number and type of carbohydrates that are being consumed.

The typical low carb diet will take you to the lower end of the recommended daily intake of carbs, or maybe slightly below it. It will also suggest cutting out many of the quick simple sugars that are found in foods.

If you remember, the simple carbohydrates are broken down quickly adding the sugars immediately to your blood supply. Complex carbs are broken down over a longer period of time, giving the body energy.

Now, just because you are doing exercise after consuming complex carbs, it doesn’t mean that your body breaks down the carbs quicker. At some point it will begin to break down the fats. That’s one advantage of making complex carbs a part of your diet.

It’s when you consume large amount of simple carbs and then do no physical activity. The sugars convert directly to fat, because the body isn’t burning them.

Pros

• You will probably consume less simple carbs. This works two ways – first, it limits the amount of sugars that you have to burn immediately, and second, many of the simple carbs (not fruits and some vegetables) have a higher fat content. This is not good for a diet.

• If you include adequate exercise to burn the little sugar that you are consuming, then you will start to burn your fat. This is good.

• It isn’t to the same degree as Atkins, so you will still be able to consume some carbs that you like, but not many.

Cons

• You will lose weight, but it comes down to the same problem as the Atkins Diet – you might not want to sacrifice your favorite foods in the long run, and that might be a problem keeping the weight you lose off for long term.

• If you go too far on the low-carb side, you might be limiting yourself from the various healthy fruits and vegetables and beans, legumes and whole grains.

• Just repeat the cons in the Atkins Diet.

Reducing carbs in your diet is a good idea – but just as long as you aren’t limiting the important fruits and vegetables in your diet to the point where you are severely limiting nutrients.

You also have to like eating certain foods – low carb foods – like meats, cheeses, poultry and other high protein foods. That’s the staple of the low carb diet.

Low carb recipes

Asparagus, Canadian Bacon, and Cheese Frittata: Low Carb

Recipe Summary
Difficulty: Easy
Prep Time: 20 minutes
Inactive Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Yield: 2 servings

5 large eggs
4 tablespoons freshly grated Parmesan
2 tablespoons milk
1/4 teaspoon freshly grated lemon zest
1 teaspoon kosher salt
Freshly ground black pepper
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
4 ounces medium asparagus stalks (about 8), woody stems trimmed, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
4 medium slices Canadian bacon (about 2 ounces), coarsely chopped

Position an oven rack in the upper part of the oven and preheat the broiler. Whisk the eggs, 3 tablespoons of the cheese, the milk, lemon zest, salt, and pepper to taste together in a bowl.

Heat the olive oil in an 8-inch nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add the asparagus and Canadian bacon, and cook until the asparagus is crisp-tender, about 4 minutes. Reduce heat to low, pour the egg mixture into the skillet, stirring gently to distribute the fillings evenly. Cover, and cook until the bottom sets, but does not get too brown, about 9 minutes. Remove the cover, scatter the remaining 1 tablespoon of cheese over the surface. Run the frittata under the broiler until the top sets and browns slightly, about 1 minute. Set aside for about 5 minutes before unmolding. Slip the frittata out of the pan onto a cutting board, cut into wedges. Serve warm or room temperature.

1/4 cup walnuts halves, toasted

Whisk the mustard, vinegar, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and pepper to taste in a small bowl. Gradually whisk in the oil, starting with a few drops and then adding the rest in a steady stream, to make a smooth, slightly thick dressing.
Toss the salad greens with the fennel in a large bowl. Add the smoked turkey along with the goat cheese, and walnuts to the salad. Season with salt and pepper and toss with the dressing. Divide the salad among 2 plates and serve.
