Carbohydrates And Weight Loss
High carbohydrate intake can raise blood sugar levels, increase appetite, and promote fat storage. Low carbohydrate diets shift the metabolism to burning fat as energy when carbohydrates are depleted in the body. Some of the foods you can eat on a low carbohydrate diet are: lean meats, fish, eggs, green vegetables and healthy fats.
To be successful on a low carbohydrate diet, it is important to plan your meals and snacks. Make a grocery list and write a meal plan for the week. Begin to experiment with low carbohydrate recipes by purchasing a low carbohydrate cookbook or researching online recipes. Here is a great high protein, low calorie, and low carbohydrate lasagna to try. It's delicious, fast, and easy to make for a quick meal.
