Low Carb Diets for Beginners

Aug 18, 2007
You have heard a lot about various low carbohydrates diets and about the great results from these diets. Now you are considering going on such a diet. That's ok as long as you know how to start.

The first thing to do is to gather some information about the low carb diets in general. There are many books on the subject and a lot of information in internet. The basic thing to remember is that low carb diets change your body metabolism to make it burn fats instead of carbohydrates. To achieve this you will not be consuming foods that are rich in carbs for specific amount of time and afterwards you will be only consuming foods that have really low carb levels.

Of course you will think about the issue if the results are good. Low carb diets are known for their fabulous results that appear quite quickly. Moreover they will not make you suffer a lot because you will be eating most of the foods that you love. However it is important for you to know that low carb diets have one of the highest yo-yo effect levels among all diets. Moreover they are likely to put a great strain on your kidneys.

The next thing to do is to consult with your doctor. A common mistake that many people make is that they start a diet without asking their doctor. Following someone else diet is not good enough since you do not know what are the specific of your body and if this particular diet is good for you. Some diets can do more harm than good so always check with your GP.

After this consultation your doctor will either give you instructions what to eat and what can be taken out of your menu, or will refer you to a specialist dealing only with diet plans. You will have a diet plan made as well as appointments for regular checks. Although that at this stage you may believe you do not need these checks in fact you do. Your body metabolism will go through a lot of changes and you will not be consuming the required daily dose of some essential vitamins and minerals so it will be best if this process is overlooked.

The final thing to consider is if you can be string enough to obey the diet plan strictly. Being on a diet is hard especially in the beginning. You should be committed and get as much support as possible. You can start visiting some support forums or get advice from people you know and who are or have been on the same low carb diet before.
