How You Can Benefit from Slow Carlo Diet Plans?

Updated on August 8, 2015

There are many people asking questions about the various slow carb diet plans so we decided to take a few moments to review the benefits and risks associated with this diet. If you have Diabetes or hypertension then you shouldn't start any new diets until you first speak with your physician to make sure it is safe. Only if your doctor clears you should you participate in these diet plans.

The Truth about Carbohydrates

For the longest time people treated "carbs" as taboo like somehow all of our weight problems are caused by excess carbs and while too many carbohydrates can have a negative impact on your health not all carbs are created the same. There are some carbs that are absorbed in your bloodstream right away and while that might sound really good when these carbs enter the bloodstream it will create a spike in your blood glucose levels. Not long after the glucose rises it will come crashing down and this will make a person feel weak and hungry at the same time. Since the glucose levels crash so fast the sugar is converted into fat instead of being burned off like other sugars.

There slow carbs that are absorbed slowly in the bloodstream. Since the sugars are absorbed slowly your body will get a consistent supply of energy which helps you feel full longer. Since you feel full you are less likely to overeat.

Carbs Influence Your Mood

If you eat simple carbs then you are going to feel hungry all the time and people are hungry tend to be cranky. These hunger induced emotions will have a profound impact on your eating habits instead of waiting to eat a proper meal you will try to snack all the time and these snacks are usually not healthy. Since you are eating large quantities of processed foods you will not have the energy you need to exercise or burn off all of the extra calories so you gain weight. After you gain weight you will feel depressed and this cycle will repeat itself over and over again. At first you don’t realize the weight is piling on but over time. By incorporating these slow carbs into your diet you will feel full longer and won't be subject to the wild mood swings that are associated with the consumption of simple carbs.

Stay Away From White Grains and Foods

You need to reduce the amount of simple carbs you get in your diet so try to stay away from highly processed grains and wheat. Items like white bread, rice and pasta might taste good but these carbs are not slow release so you are going to suffer from a spike in your blood sugar levels then a corresponding crash afterwards. By adopting this healthier diet you are going to see a dramatic loss in weight while at the same time you won't feel hungry all of the time. These slow carbs will help reduce the risk of developing Diabetes but you should always go for a checkup with your doctor before starting this or any other diet.
