Hey ladies and gentlemen,
Hope you all are having good time with the merriment of the holiday!
For me, it has been all fun for myself and my family here…lots of visits, things to eat and things to drink.
Oh! I was almost getting carried away with the Christmas story, Let me match straight to our “ LOW CARB FOODS AND HOW IT FASTENS WEIGHT LOSS”.
I will begin with the meaning of Low carb foods.
Nowadays, social network and other factors are bringing up abbreviation of many terminologies.
“Low carb foods” simply means;
Those foods/diets which have “Low carbohydrate” contents. (Carb for Carbohydrate).
How does low carb foods work in our body?
Any food substance you take into your body is used for energy. Either energy for now( kinetic energy) or energy that is saved for later(potential energy). The “potential energy” that is saved for later, is stored as glycogen in the liver and skeletal muscle cells; while the primary energy is stored as fats held in the adipose tissues.
And when you fail to use up the primary energy, that is the point you start to accumulated fat…and you know the rest of the story.
So, if you eat a diet high in carbs(carbohydrate), your body will choose to burn the carbs and most definitely will not be able to finish the energy released from the high carb diets. Thus, leading to the storage of the remnant energy as fat in the adipose tissues.
But when you eat a diet that is low in carbs, the body will not get enough of the kinetic energy needed. Hence, the body has no other choice but to use what is left, which is the fat stored previously in those arms, thunder thighs and of course, lets not forget that bubble butt.
What am I really saying?
Eat Low carbs food/diet! In doing so, you give your body chance to use those excess energy (fat) stores in your body.
Once you start eating low carbs diets, you start getting amazing results of weight loss.
Already, you must be asking for examples of these low carb foods…
Very well, I am going to give you some of them. But know it that low carb foods are not just limited only with what I have here.

In as much as these maybe what you eat while you hang out in the evenings or any other time of the day:
Know it that if you are aiming to shed off weight, do mind how much you take beer/ alcohols.
