Any diet program would recommend a diet solution that has calories as low as possible. But least importance is given to the nutrients present in the diet. These programs seem to exploit the common misunderstanding of many people that calories are solely responsible for body weight.
Yes, to a certain extent controlling calorie intake would help weight loss. But this is not always true. Nutrients responsible for calories have their significance as well. Among the nutrients that affect weight loss or gain, carbohydrates or carbs are very significant. Any change in the amount of carbs consumed would produce visible results within weeks.
Whenever you consume excess carbs in your diet (regardless of calories) your body tends to accumulate more water weight. Also the metabolism slows down by a small percentage. When metabolic rate is hit, your body loses its fight to burning fats at faster rate. This indirect impact of excess carbs in meals is not taken into consideration by many popular diet programs.
On the other hand low carb diet plans can trigger weight loss in a super quick fashion than you would imagine. Low carb diet plans when supplemented with healthy nutrients like proteins, irons and vitamins can boost up the metabolic rate significantly. Your body gets the sufficient power to burn excessive fat deposited around belly, thighs etc. When you follow a strict low carb meal plan for several weeks you are sure to notice a drop of at least about five to ten pounds.
