Control Your Cravings with a Low-Carb Diet

mai 24, 2017

Conventional wisdom may have you believe that if you cut or drastically decrease your consumption of the foods you crave, for example, carb-laden and sugar-laden sweets or potatoes, bread and French fries, that you would just end up craving those foods even more, leading to a vicious cycle of cravings and hunger. But a new study shows that following a low-carb diet actually helps control those cravings, which is good news.

 During the study, 20 obese men and women followed a low-carb diet for four weeks. Participants lost weight and reduced their waist circumference. At the end of four weeks, the participants lost more than 12 pounds and were able to reduce their waist circumference by more than 2 inches. In addition the weight and inches lost while on the low-carb diet, survey results showed that 95% of the participants reported feeling somewhat satisfied to very satisfied with their meals, 60% felt less hunger after meals and 75% said they had reduced their occasions of “eating when bored”.

 These results show why a low-carb diet can be so effective. The combination of protein, healthy fats and fiber-rich vegetables keep you satisfied while helping you lose weight at a steady pace and take charge of your cravings for sweets and carbs.
