Long Term Effects of a Low Carbohydrate Diet
|Long Term Effects of a Low Carbohydrate Diet
Hi guys we’re going to talk about the long-term effects of low carbohydrates in the diet .
A lot of times when you read the news, or get advice from a dietitian they’re going to say oh you can do a ketogenic diet for a short period of time, but don’t do it long-term because there’s so many side effects. So let’s talk about that.
There is no essential carbohydrate your the central amino acid, that’s protein essential fatty acids that’s fat but there is no essential carbohydrates, what you do need carbohydrates you need types of carbohydrates could not recover hydrate fake, but for the vitamins and minerals, for example you need vegetable carbohydrates for all the vitamins and minerals, that’s why you need them, not because the carbohydrates.
Our bodies will not suffer from not having or consuming glucose.
You say well we need that for energy you know you don’t your body is much better run on fat fuel or ketones not glucose or people say, well a kind of a tie-in like a low carb diet is a low calorie diet they’re kind of meaning the same but they’re not a low carb diet is not a low calorie diet there are two separate things.
They’ll say well low carbs are going to starve your thyroid of nutrients well no it’s not the thyroid doesn’t need glucose, it needs nutrition doesn’t need a lot of sugar, so when you go on a low-calorie diet that can make the thyroid suffer simply because you’re depriving it of nutrients.
There’s nothing to with carbohydrates when i recommend a ketogenic diet i’m recommending unlimited vegetables, by the way so you want to do a lot of those we’re not even factoring.
Factoring that ends so we need the nutrients from vegetables but we don’t need the nutrients from grains simply, because of the difficulty in digesting grains and the gluten effect that it can create on our body it turns into sugar very very fast and then I was like this, it’s like they say right they say you shouldn’t do a low carbohydrate long term because no one can stick to it and you’re going to cheat, you’re going to crave that’s not true.
First of all this is a diet that you can stick with, because your cravings go away and your hunger goes away, that’s the two barriers of any diet if you do a low calorie diet or high carbohydrate diet, you’re going to be craving and it’s going to be hard to stick to that or here’s another one, they’ll say that they say that a low carb diet is a high protein diet no it’s not low carbohydrates and high protein are coming two separate things.
I recommend a moderate amount of protein, three to six ounces and that’s totally reasonable and you need those amino acids for building body proteins, and then they say well it’s not healthy because you’re omitting a food group well omitting bread, pasta, cereal, crackers, biscuits, waffles, pancakes yeah you’re meeting those groups because those are not healthy all right you can get your B vitamins from other foods.
You don’t have to get them from the grains or they’ll say that OA ketogenic diet a low, low carb diet is going to lead to a disease called diabetes or create ketoacidosis, which is another lie because ketoacidosis, will only occur if you are a type 1 diabetic and you’re in a situation where you completely run out of insulin and you have this serious disease, that’s completely different then a healthy person doing a nutritional ketosis or healthy type of ketosis, that they’re not going to get ketoacidosis and that’s like a severe high acid level of the body you’re not going to get that it’s almost actually it’s probably impossible to get it.
So you don’t have to worry about that again, it’s someone reckon it’s like because two words have are similar they’re saying they’re identical ketoacidosis and ketosis they’re not identical they’re similar, because they say ketones, but they’re not identical but they’re similar it doesn’t mean they’re the same alright so the truth is that when you do a low carb diet you fix insulin resistance and when you fix insulin resistant you allow the body to absorb nutrients way more nutrients but not.
Just the minerals like potassium magnesium chromium. the B vitamins vitamin D omega-6 fatty acids when you have insulin resistance you can absorb those nutrients so the benefit of long-term low carbohydrates in the diet we’re going to reduce insulin you’re going to heart improvements weight and weight loss improvements, skin improvements like acne is going to go away positive ovarian syndrome is going to go away let’s liver fat less diabetes, less insulin resistance better cognitive function better mood less dementia.
I mean it’s kind of no-brainer but I do know that every time we have a recommendation that’s so positive you have to have some someone that objecting to it that it just just always happens like that so you just pretty much have to realize that of course someone’s going to object to it just ignore that and do a low carb diet all right.
