Quantum Physiques: Low Carb Diets!

with Damon Hayhow

Low carbohydrate diets are the big talk (fad?) of the moment. They improve energy and health while reducing bodyfat FAST! The jist of the argument is quite simple: if you don't feed your body carbohydrates, its' forced to burn fat instead. Simple… but theres much more to it.

There are basically 3 types of low carb diet. High fat, Ketogenic diets are the best diets for losing fat without losing muscle. A ketogenic diet is the only type of diet where ketones - from fat - are used to fuel everything. There is always plenty of bodyfat to create extra ketones so the body doesn't burn muscle.

Ketogenic diets require 70-80% of calories to come from fat. Carbs are ideally zero. Done like this, you will quickly experience a sense of incredible high, stable energy, sharp mental focus and overall well being. Not needing glucose, cravings disappear on ketogenic diets but few people enjoy eating a diet of fat!

High protein diets (40%+ protein) are the current favourite of athletes. Many mistake them as ketogenic but they actually work by a process known as gluconeogenesis - the conversion of protein to glucose. Your body runs on glucose (carbs) and not ketones (fat). Incredible fat and water reduction is seen initially but eventually leads in accelerated muscle loss.

Balanced diets (around 1/3 protein, 1/3 carbs, 1/3 fat) such as The Zone are considered 'low carb' by the media because they are not high carb…? Balanced diets are the best diets for maximal health, energy and performance. But they are require extreme commitment compared to other diets.

All 3 types of low carb diet have their positives, negatives and applications - as do high carb diets! For more help, advice and discount low-carb supplements drop in to Bio Logic Labs and Quantum Physiques or check out our website.

Scurvy diet revealed

When most of us think of scurvy, we picture the adventurous sailors of the 18th century. But a report has revealed that a young man in the US was recently diagnosed with scurvy after eating a diet completely lacking in fruits and vegetables. Scurvy, a disease most noted for the bleeding gums, loose teeth and muscle degeneration it causes, is easily prevented by simply getting enough vitamin C in the diet. The young scurvy sufferer admitted to having had a diet that consisted of cheese, crackers, soft drink, biscuits, chocolate and water. Researchers estimate that he was only getting approximately 0.1 milligrams of vitamin C per day, a figure far below the recommended daily allowance for men of 40mg.
