11. Nutritional Knowledge about Low Carb and Low Carb Diet

At the end of this page I would like to provide you as a cook and nutrition trainer with nutritional knowledge about Low Carb and the Low Carb Diet.

12. What does Low Carb mean?

Low Carb means to strongly reduce carbohydrates in the diet.

Carbohydrates are mainly found as starch in cereals and as sugar in fruit.

The following foods contain a high proportion of carbohydrates:
Bread, pasta, muesli, rice, vegetables such as potatoes, beans and lentils, fruit – for example bananas.

Known low carb diets are the Atkins Diet and the South Beach Diet.

13. Low Carb and is the Low Carb Diet healthy?

First of all, I’m not a doctor. As a trained nutrition trainer and cook, I can only give you recommendations and tell you about my own experience and that of my clients.

The most important points at a glance:

  • Carbohydrates provide our body with energy quickly. Carbohydrates are stored in the liver and muscles in the form of glycogen and are immediately available when needed. The human brain needs carbohydrates and the sweet things in life create good feelings in the head.
  • As part of a balanced diet, you would only eat carbohydrates if you were physically playing golf through sports, chopping wood, 9 holes of golf, or a long hike.

The problem is that our traditional diet has hardly changed in the last 100 years – but our lifestyle and thus our physical exertions have changed fundamentally:

  • Most people are sedentary and do the following
  • Daily wood chipping has become a rarity
  • Many work processes that used to require physical activity are now performed by equipment and machines.

A wonderful example is the craftsman who works physically hard as a journeyman at a young age. Later, as a master craftsman, he took on more and more managerial functions. Then it is no longer necessary to carry the tool to the construction site, tow the pipes, or generally carry out the physically demanding activity.

The learned nutritional behaviour is usually not adapted… At noon a beer and two sausage rolls or a kebap bag, in the evening traditional food such as noodles, roasts with potatoes, schnitzel with potato salad continues.

In this case, the diet simply no longer corresponds to the actual physical requirements. Superfluous glycogen, the carbohydrates converted by the body, are then converted by the body into storage fat and the master craftsman increases.

A diet with carbohydrates that meets our needs would lead to us not becoming fat or being able to reduce weight. If the body is again challenged by more exercise, long walks and sport, it first uses the carbohydrate stores in the liver and muscles, then converts stored fat into usable energy.

Experience has shown that the low carb diet is a good thing. Healthy is what is done with moderation and goal. To eliminate all carbohydrates from one day to the next, I personally think is wrong. This is how I briefly explain this to you:

  • The body needs carbohydrates; depending on your constitution, extreme carbohydrate reduction can lead to mood swings and depression.
  • Doctors confirm an individual carbohydrate requirement to me in conversations about LOW Carb. Carbohydrates should account for a maximum proportion of 8% -15% in the daily diet.
  • Nutrition change and nourishing management is the new Diet. To have patience with oneself, the goal before eyes… Slowly reduce carbohydrates and pay attention to oneself. Please avoid hardcore changes that you can’t sustain in the long run.
  • For some people, a mini dumpling can mean low carb compared to a large potato dumpling and a large bread dumpling as a side dish. If you have eaten the dumpling, please walk for more than 1 hour or put it on the treadmill, fast walking is also exercise!

Here’s a note on ketogenic nutrition.

The ketogenic diet is an extreme form of LOW-Carb. The ketogenic diet in numbers: Nutrition with ONLY 5% carbohydrates, 20% protein and 75% fat. The ketogenic diet is strongly in the criticism, because the conversion to this extreme can lead to concentration difficulties, tiredness, constipation and bad breath. The body overacidifies, that is not healthy!
