Low Carb Dieting and Hydrogen Water
Ah…low-carb dieting, how do I practice thee? Let me count the ways.
Yep, low-carbing in its various guises has been the phrase on millions of dieter’s lips ever since Dr. Atkins first told us that we could eat cheese, bacon and cream to our hearts’ content and still lose weight.
Low-carb weight management has come on a lot since then, so what’s the current carb-free low down?
What is a low carb diet?
Whichever plan you follow – or if you simply try to avoid eating too many carbs your own way – the basic principle is the same: restricting carbohydrates can help you to drop excess weight.
The basic theory behind it all is that instead of using the glucose produced by carbohydrates, your body will source fuel from stored fat, leading to weight loss.
What can I eat on a low carb diet?
It’s not all bacon and eggs. You can eat a varied, healthy diet while low-carbing, including:
- lean meats, such as chicken
- fish and seafood
- leafy green vegetables
- plain, sugar-free nut butter
- nuts and seeds
- plant oils
- some fruit – apples, blueberries, and strawberries are usually ‘allowed’ but this varies from plan to plan
How many carbs can I have per day on a low carb diet?
It varies from diet plan to diet plan, but generally speaking, we’re talking around 50 –150 grams of carbohydrate per day. Some diets are far less than this.
What do doctors and experts say about a low carb diet?
Many doctors are in favor of reducing carbohydrates and increasing protein intake. Others counsel against cutting out an entire food group on anything other than a short-term basis. Talk to your doctor about your food intake and seek advice before embarking on a low-carb eating plan.
What type of water or beverages are best to drink on a low carb diet?
You can drink tea and coffee pretty freely if you take them without milk (although you can add cream to coffee). Some diet sodas are considered acceptable, others aren’t – but bear in mind what else is in that soda bottle.
Fruit juice is out, but water is IN! Yep, water is carb-free and a great choice to accompany any weight loss plan.
What role does Hydrogen Water play in a low carb diet?
The type of water matters though. Drinking hydrogen water to boost your metabolism is a great idea.
Ionized hydrogen water is filtered for worry-free hydration. As well as all those hydrogen molecules, it’s also packed with naturally occurring antioxidants and minerals, to support good health while losing weight.
