Low Carb Diet (DO YOU HAVE TO QUIT CARBS TO LOSE WEIGHT??)

People can lose weight while eating a diet rich in carbohydrates, provided
that they are NOT insulin resistant, and they are instead insulin
sensitive. However, much of the reason why people are overweight is because
they are insulin resistance, and this insulin resistance makes them
predisposed to storing fat, after a high carb meal, and their fat cells,
due to the action of elevated insulin, prevents fat stores from liberating
fatty acids for energy usage. For these insulin resistant people, which
probably constitutes the majority of overweight people, the low
carbohydrate diet is the most effective dietary strategy to lose weight and
keep it off.

Rationalizing the large consumption of carbohydrates, for the purposes of
fueling a high intensity workout, would only make sense if the high
intensity workout induced fat loss results to such a high degree that it
countered acted the fat storage activities that a high insulin producing
high carbohydrate diet will induce. The fact is that in most overweight
insulin resistant people, this is not the case. Exercise, while having many
benefits, is not, in and of itself, a great producer of fat loss. It only
has a minimal effect – far too minimal to justify eating a large amount of
carbohydrates to facilitate it.

As Elaine Nilsson, the person who posted before me so rightly said, there
is no need to ingest carbohydrates. Unlike essential proteins, fats, and
certain micro-nutrients, the body manufacturers all the carbohydrate it
needs from a process called gluconeogenesis. – where protein and fat are
turned into carbohydrate by the liver. That is why certain hunter gather
societies, who have no source of rich carbohydrate foods, can survive and
thrive.

Furthermore, the low carbohydrate diet, more so than high carbohydrate
diets, satiate the body the most. As a result fewer calories are ingested,
in the long term.

With respect to exercise performance, the lagging of such performance on a
low carbohydrate diet is only experienced in the first few weeks of the
diet. As long as one sticks to the diet, without significant deviation, the
body will adapt to the utilization of fat (both on your body and what you
ingest), and ketones, as its primary source of fuel. This process is called
ketoadaptation, and now many long distance runners are taking advantage of
it. For more information on this, read Dr. Stephen Phinney and Dr. Jeff
Volek’s book, “The Art and Science of Low Carbohydrate Performance”
