Lose Unwanted Belly Fat With This 7-Day Sugar Detox Menu Plan

Lose Unwanted Belly Fat With This 7-Day Sugar Detox Menu Plan

Low carb diets come in different flavors, colors, and names. Ketogenic, Atkins, and similar diets which are low in carbs and high in fat are all examples of low carb diets. As the name itself suggests, this type of diet limits the consumption of carbs, usually up to 50 grams daily. They are replaced with foods which are high in protein and fat, while the ratios vary from diet to diet.

People usually opt for low carb diets to lose weight, but such diets have been also shown to be beneficial for fighting against obesity and type II diabetes. But, it can be quite difficult to change eating habits, particularly those formed long time ago. You are not alone in this- eliminating and even limiting sugar and other carbohydrates is never easy.
