Low-carbohydrate diets or low-carb diets are one of the simplest ways to reduce weight and improve health. Low carb diets that restrict carbohydrate consumption are often effective for the treatment of obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, metabolic syndrome, auto-brewery syndrome, and high blood pressure.
The recipes in the Low Carb Cookbook focus on ingredients containing a higher percentage of fats and protein and all recipes are low in carbohydrates and low on the glycemic index.
The benefits of a low carb diet include:
- Weight loss
- Reduced hunger
- Better control over insulin and blood sugar
- Lower risk for heart disease factors
- Reduced risk for certain types of cancer
