The Reduced Carbohydrate Diet

The reduced carbohydrate diet category is very effective for immediate and consistent weight loss. Maintaining your current level of proteins and fats while reducing carbohydrate intake slightly will reduce the amount of fat stored in your body. This is a very simple philosophy to follow and will result in incredible and immediate visible results.

A reduced carbohydrate diet means just that: reducing your carbohydrates moderately and appropriately. This diet is a modified version of the balanced diet, based on a simple ratio of 40 percent protein, 30 percent carbohydrates and 30 percent healthy fats, instead of 40 percent carbohydrates, 30 percent protein and 30 percent fats. This ratio helps the active individual burn more calories through increased metabolism as a result of increased lean body mass (LBM = your natural proteins/muscle). Reducing carbohydrate consumption also reduces the insulin levels your body produces when you eat carbohydrates, while maintaining a healthy level of fats stimulates the production of natural hormones and good cholesterol while boosting energy.
