When we decide to lose weight, diet we choose to follow is a low-carb diet. It has less consumption of carbohydrates and high consumption of proteins and fats. Body gets habituated to convert energy from fats instead of carbohydrates. Our low-carb diet mostly includes legumes, roots, bread, etc.
When we are removing carbohydrates from our diet, it is vital to replace it from enough proteins and fats. We all have a great misconception that fats are bad for our health, but we put essential fats of our body risk under this misconception. So, we are indirectly misleading our nutrition and diet.
No matter which diet we follow, it is important to keep the calorie consumption in check. Especially, in low carb diet, we focus on taking more proteins and less carbohydrates and hence, it is important to calculate our diet for calories before we take it.Having 1500 calories as of minimum in our daily diet can be a healthy choice for weight loss.
Though everyone of us plan our diet according to our choices, we should not skip to follow the proper calorie intake in order to lose weight quick. As said, “Great things take time.” It is good to have a healthy weight loss rather than choosing quick ways. The fats in our diet should not be less than 0.4 - 0.5 pounds according to our aspired body weight.
And, it is also necessary to take care about the proteins and fats we follow in our diet as every food is not healthy. It is suggested to add more unsaturated fats rather than saturated as they not only have proteins but also minerals and antioxidants. Having minerals and antioxidants can help us to be healthy and avoid other health issues while the process of losing weight. Foods like bread, nuts, dates, seafood and eggs contain high protein and less carbohydrates in them.
