You probably start a diet as a quick weight-loss solution and often feel punished and deprived during the process.
The rewards for you have been few and the behavioral diet changes are not permanent.
Sadly, you will regain the weight you lost while dieting. That’s why there are so many diet books on the market!
Let’s explore the different diets out there and why they fail for you.
The first basic fact about diets is that a diet high in protein, low in fat and devoid of carbohydrates, will result in not enough energy for your body to function properly in the long term.
Without fat or carbohydrates, it will make no difference the quantity of meat you ingest. You will be hungry after every meal and will lose strength or become ill.
This makes sense since there are two sources to supply your body with energy, carbs or fat.
On a low fat diet no body fat will burn for weight loss until your body first exhausts all the carbs in the body for energy.
In other words, on a low fat diet the only way to lose weight is to put your body into starvation mode so it starts to burn the body fat for energy.
Carbs are easily accessible by your body in comparison to fat. So on a low fat diet your carbs must be depleted in order for your body to go into starvation mode and burn your body fat for energy.
But you may think low carb diets are all the same and lump a low carb high protein together with a low carb high fat diet.
This is wrong!
Here is why…
First you must realize that fats have little to no effect on blood sugar and insulin levels but protein affects both your blood sugar and insulin.
Protein can be turned into glucose via a process called gluconeogenesis and excessive protein consumption can prevent you from getting into ketosis.
Ketosis just means that your body is burning fat for energy.
That is why a low carb high fat diet has shown in studies to be a more efficient for weight loss than a low carb high protein or a low fat diet.
In fact the Indians of the north hunted older reindeer bucks, because they carried an enormous slab of back fat that could weigh up to 50 pounds.
They then made pemmican by mixing fat with meat in a proportion of one-to-one by volume.
By caloric content, the pemmican amounted to 80% of mostly saturated fat calories to 20% protein calories.
And among the northern Indians, cancer and heart disease were nonexistent.
