A Low Carbohydrate Diet Works For Weight Loss Dont Believe The Hype

A Low Carbohydrate Diet Works For Weight Loss Dont Believe The Hype

When the​ average person embarks on​ a​ diet or​ fitness regimen in​ the​ aim of​ losing weight or​ building muscle mass,​ what they are usually instructed to​ do is​ to​ eat lots of​ protein and go on​ a​ low carbohydrate diet to​ accomplish either of​ the​ goals.

Right there,​ an​ observer should see a​ red-flag: “How is​ it​ that the​ same dietetic suggestion for weight loss remains applicable for building muscle mass?!”
We all know we​ need a​ certain amount of​ protein everyday to​ remain healthy. Based on​ misinformation to​ this effect,​ several people view the​ daily consumption of​ a​ high-protein diet as​ beneficial. But have you really seen any one lose the​ desired weight on​ such popular diets as​ the​ Atkins Diet,​ which is​ basically a​ low-carbohydrate/high protein lifestyle.

I have seen several people try it​ and fail,​ and even became sicker for the​ process.

Here are some other facts that should spur you in​ the​ right direction in​ regards to​ excessive protein consumption: According to​ the​ French Hygienist,​ Albert Mosseri,​ diseases and conditions which can be caused or​ aggravated by too much protein intake include: Leukemia,​ Skin Diseases and even Cancer.

Based on​ the​ John Robbins work titled: Diet for a​ New America,​ the​ number of​ people in​ the​ US suffering from diseases caused by protein excess is​ a​ mind-boggling 40,​ 000,​ 000 compared to​ a​ measly 3 people suffering from the​ deficiency of​ this substance.

Judging from these,​ it​ may be time to​ revise the​ misinforming ideas on​ protein in​ our diets.

Let’s consider some factors on​ why a​ Low Carbohydrate Diet may be unnecessary and even detrimental to​ one’s health.
1. the​ animals that are usually eaten for protein,​ what do they subsists on?
Substances of​ the​ Plant Kingdom for example: cows live on​ grass exclusively.

2. 98% of​ the​ human population is​ sweet toothed...which shows that carbohydrates are our main need contrary to​ popular belief.

3. the​ great apes are primarily fruit eaters (although with substantial amount of​ leaves in​ their diets) How similar are humans to​ them? Very much so. we​ share 98% of​ the​ same genes.

4. It’s been scientifically proven that mother's milk is​ about 2% protein,​ now if​ this is​ the​ ideal of​ a​ growing baby for the​ first 3 years; of​ course it​ shows the​ minimal need of​ it. (Point of​ note,​ the​ milk of​ a​ woman is​ affected by her diet so of​ course that should be checked.)

5. the​ need of​ protein for the​ human body is​ about a​ nickel's weight worth,​ the​ excess is​ basically excreted in​ urine.

6. Several people subsists on​ fruits and green leaves exclusively or​ starchy root vegetables,​ fruits and leaves only and are in​ top shape-I've seen and am one of​ them.

7. People have fasted on​ water only for several days and were actually stronger for the​ process!

8. Fruits and green leaves give you sufficient protein: e.g. the​ Banana,​ Dates,​ Avocadoes,​ Olives,​ Cabbage,​ Lettuce,​ Durian,​ Young Coconuts and even the​ Apple. Exactly or​ a​ little more than what you need at​ a​ given time.

9. Based on​ research,​ the​ need for amino acids is​ highly exaggerated as​ only 16% or​ our body is​ Protein. Pure protein is​ primarily Nitrogen (N) with some Oxygen and Hydrogen and Carbon. we​ all know that we​ get a​ large share of​ our Oxygen and Hydrogen need from the​ air. Since we​ are able to​ utilize and assimilate a​ large amount of​ our needs of​ these elements,​ we​ are able to​ build the​ Nitrogen into our body as​ protein. This process is​ done by natural bacteria action that is​ capable of​ converting it​ to​ our use. People who smoke though cannot pick up Nitrogen from the​ air so easily but might still get enough from proper foods. Although for your well-being,​ cessation of​ tobacco usage is​ mandatory.

10. Research has been done on​ the​ diet of​ the​ aboriginal tribes living in​ the​ Mountains of​ Hagen. Their diet consisted of​ 80 % Sweet potatoes. the​ rest consisted of​ fruits and green leaf vegetables. Their daily consumption of​ protein was around 9.92 g. Meanwhile,​ eliminated in​ their fecal matter was a​ protein of​ around 15 times more of​ what was ingested. This phenomenon illustrates the​ protein synthesis illustrated above.

Definitely cutting back on​ the​ ‘wrong’ kinds of​ Carbohydrates such as​ Cakes,​ Confectioneries,​ Bread,​ Polished rice and the​ like will be mandatory for weight-loss,​ but replacing them with high protein foods is- just as​ from the​ points above-unnecessary and actually harmful for overall health and fitness.

So what should we​ eat? Simple,​ Raw and properly cooked Fruits,​ Roots and Leafy Vegetables. Not only is​ this kind of​ diet unmatched for speedy weight-loss,​ but your body will thank you for the​ change as​ you mechanically (via the​ broom-like/mucus-binding qualities of​ these substances) cleanse yourself from perhaps a​ life-time of​ wrong eating.

Remember the​ famous quote by Hippocrates; the​ “Father of​ Medicine”: “Let your foods be your medicine and your medicine your Foods!” Therefore,​ don’t believe the​ hype of​ high-protein/low carbohydrate diets for weight-loss or​ fitness. For optimal health a​ wise combination of​ your organic,​ seasonal fruits,​ roots and veggies is​ the​ best and safest way to​ go.
