The low carb diet enthusiasts will continue to ask on a regular basis, which low carb diet plan should they go with, and above all, is there a major difference among various ones? I bet we’ve all heard of the Atkins Diet. This is one of the best low carb diet plans to date. With its phenomenon run away success of the Atkins Diet, several other low carb diet plans have hit the stores to emulate the success.
Did you know that low carb was originally called the “Banting Diet”?- named after the founder, and the man who devised the diet plan. This goes back to the beginning of the 1800s. A long time ago! If one ignores the fancy words used today in association of the current low carb diet, one will find that there’s not a lot differences in the old Banting Diet and the today’s Low carb diet. Even back then in the 1800s, Banting still leaves a bit of allowance for some port (strong sweet wine) to help him wash down his food.
But in our today’s society, the most popular low carb diet known to man is the Atkins diet, likewise, named after the Dr Robert Atkins who published it back in the 170s. It became a run away success because of two reason, one, because it was written by a professional medical practitioner, and two – the most important, because of the positive results as proof from the users of the diet program. Several people have lost bucket load of fat using this particular low carb diet plan, even though it has also attract some skepticism from the mainstream medical profession. Some termed it as “envy”!
Let’s look back and employ a bit of logic in this, shall we? For thousands of long years gone by, our ancestors never had agriculture nor the means to cultivate it, but one thing they had, was meat – yeah protein. And they had plenty of it. They however had seasonal fruits to content with when and if it arrived. One can argue that this is the best form of diet ever. Well, the proof is we’re all here today. This means one thing, our ancestor didn’t do too back on this low carb diet, even though they didn’t know it at the time.
In addition to the Atkins low carb diet, we now today have several low carb diet plans out there, including the Neanderthin which examines what specific Neanderthal our ancestors would have eaten in their day. I must be very honest with you, this was probably the book that convinced and made me believe that the low carb diet was, and still is safe to follow. And also most likely the food our bodies’ are designed to eat on a regular basis.
However, whichever low carb diet plan you decide to go with, please make sure, you should check with your physicians or medical practitioner to seek their opinion. This applies to all kinds of diets
Conclusively, low carb diet works and will continue to work to lose abundant of weight even when we’re all long gone.
