Why Eat Low Carb?
Many people rely on foods that are high in carbohydrates in order to fuel their bodies. When you eat carbs, your body breaks down the complex chains into sugars which then gives your body energy to function. When you start eating a low carb diet, you will lower your insulin levels, decrease your sugar intake and train your body to burn fats as fuel rather than carbohydrates. When your body burns fat as energy, you actually stay energized longer as it is a much more efficient source of fuel. Burning fats can also help lead to weight loss. In addition, eating a low carb diet has been shown to help improve overall health and lower risk of diseases like diabetes and heart disease. People on low carb diets have also reported having better mental focus, clearer skin, more energy and less inflammation. There are so many positives!
