You’ve been told that improving your diet will improve your cholesterol profile, but what do you do if your cholesterol profile doesn’t improve or gets worse after changing your diet?
This is the experience that some people have when they follow a low-carb diet.
In this article and video, I explain what is going on and how you can tell if you are doing your body more harm or good by cutting carbs.
You’ve decided to cut carbs because you think it will help you lose weight and control your blood sugar levels.
Well, you’re right on both accounts, but if you stop eating carbs, what’s left to eat?
There’s no denying that high carb foods are fun foods. They include bread, cereal, potatoes, french fries, pizza, chips, candy, and milk chocolate and the list goes on.
But, the evidence is clear that high carb foods keep blood sugar and insulin elevated. And, we know that the more insulin you have in your blood, the more fat storage you have going on inside your body.
So, if you want to lose weight, you must limit or completely avoid the starchy and refined carbs I mentioned earlier. But, where does that leave you?

Do you wish you had more control over how fast your body lost weight?
Fast weight loss has as much to do with what you add to your diet as what you cut out.
