There is no strict definition of a low-carb diet. Basically, low-carb is keto, but with a bit more carbs – maybe 75-150 grams per day.
Low-carb diets are usually low in carbs to keep you in complete ketosis. You are likely to plunge into mild ketosis between meals and be completely out of it after consuming carbs. You probably won’t be in full ketosis often on a low-carb diet, except maybe at certain times (when you sleep, after a hard workout, or during fasting, eg).
What is Weight loss
Weight loss. First things first, just because you’re burning fat for fuel doesn’t mean you’re burning fat for fuel – it’s a common misconception. In keto, you will burn the fat you eat first, and then the stored fat. Thus, it is possible to overeat and gain weight on keto just like any other diet. However, overeating on keto is much more difficult for two reasons.
Another benefit of low carb diet is its faster metabolism – a well-controlled study found that this diet burned about 300 more calories per day than non-low carb diet.
In other words, low carb diet can help you burn more calories but still feel satisfied with less food. This is a solid recipe for sustainable fat loss.
Stable energy and blood sugar. Does your energy drop a couple of hours after eating? My first recommendation would be to cut out the sugar and other carbohydrates. If you are monitoring your sugar and you still feel like you are between a feeling of excitement and exhaustion / hunger, you may be especially sensitive to spikes in blood sugar / insulin. Low carb diet can help. While carbohydrates affect your blood sugar and insulin levels, fat does not. Reducing carbohydrates can help you maintain your blood sugar balance, providing you with constant energy throughout the day.
It reducing inflammation reduction of inflammation is possibly through a low carb metabolite called beta-hydroxybutyrate. Keto seems to be especially beneficial for liver inflammation.
