I know SOOOOOO many people who cut out carbohydrates in an effort to lose weight. And yes, don’t get me wrong, going low carb does have it’s benefits and will help with weight loss. But when this is taken too far, the long term effects are drastic and I see people literally crash and burn.
In an effort to lose weight it is ok to reduce your carbohydrate intake, especially processed carbohydrates like breads, pastries, junk food etc… but never drop it too low, or cut it out all together. Carbohydrates are a key energy source and are just as important as protein and fats, but in the right amounts for your body type and goals.
When people cut out carbs for too long they feel extrememly lethargic, cold, angry, depressed, lack energy, skin and nails become worse, issues with bowel movements, digestion weakens and the list goes on. People need to learn that you can easily burn fat and lose weight by eating a healthy array of nutrient dense carbohydrates like vegetables, fruit, brown rice and wholegrains.
