Carb Intake for Weight Loss and Ketosis

Have you been hearing a lot about the carb intake for weight loss lately? This is because it has been discovered that a person’s body mass index (BMI) greatly influences the foods that they are able to take in and the amount of time it takes to shed those unwanted pounds. A recent study published in the Journal of Obesity has shown conclusively that the carbs which we commonly ingest contribute significantly to the level of fat that is deposited on the body. The same study also revealed that a higher level of carbs can also have an effect on weight gain among preschool kids.


In order to shed unwanted pounds, a person needs to make alterations in their diet plan. Usually this involves cutting back on fats which we commonly consume as oil, butter, eggs, and other sources of calories; replacing these with high carbohydrate content foods like vegetables, grains, and even seeds and nuts; and ideally eating more fruits and vegetables. Even though the rich intake of fruits and vegetables is advisable for healthy weight loss, when we talk about the Keto diet (low carbohydrate diet), it is advisable to completely eliminate all starchy carbs from your diet!

This kind of diet requires a drastic carb intake reduction, and if you cannot do so, you will fail. The most popular form of this kind of diet is known as the Atkins Diet. This diet consists of restricting the number of carbohydrates that you take in, but also including many carbs in the form of protein. Protein can be derived from meat, cheese, beans, nuts, and even vegetables. The problem with this kind of diet is that people who try it often find it extremely difficult to continue the rigorous diet due to the fact that their body requires so many carbs in order to maintain normal functions.

Another type of weight reducing diet which involves a high intake of carbs is known as the South Beach Diet. This diet makes use of mainly fats, and it advocates the replacement of carbohydrates with high levels of unsaturated fats. Unsaturated fats are essential for maintaining a healthy skin and keeping the metabolic rate optimal. Unlike the Atkins Diet, South Beach recommends consuming many more vegetables and fewer meats.

The Rice Baby Diet involves eating very few grains while consuming lots of fruits and vegetables. In the Rice Baby Diet, the main reason why carbohydrates are limited is because rice contains too many carbs that would overwhelm the effect of any weight loss. However, this kind of diet is very effective in burning fat, especially when paired with interval training. Interval training is a form of physical activity that makes use of short bursts of high intensity exercise in order to increase the metabolism.

A recent study published in the Journal of Obesity showed that the ketosis diet may be able to increase an individual’s body weight after only four weeks of doing it. This diet is called the Atkins Diet. The study published in the Journal of Obesity showed that the ketosis diet may increase an individual’s body weight after only four weeks of doing it. The participants who took the ketogenic diet increased their body weight by 17 pounds within just four weeks of beginning the diet. The results from this study were very impressive, but the short-term effects may not be sustainable over the long run. Long-term effects are believed to be influenced by the ability of the carbohydrates to affect the brain and the ability of the fat to affect the brain.
