Carbohydrates are not the enemy! In fact, everyone needs a fairly high amount of carbohydrates to function optimally. When you don’t have enough carbohydrates in your diet, you begin a toxic process called protein metabolism which produces ammonia and causes stress on your bodily systems.
But can’t the low-carb diet help me lose weight?
Yes, since it is a strenuous activity, protein metabolism (from low-carb dieting) decreases the number of calories you take in compared with the number of calories you expend. However, there are far too many negatives associated with the diet, including the restriction on such wonderful foods as fruit, bread, and certain vegetables.
The goal should be to eat all healthy foods at the appropriate times
All food found in nature (and modern equivalents) can and should be a part of your diet. The trick is knowing in what portion and when. Luckily for us, we have guides that can help us get back to how we would naturally eat. These guides have been compiled in The Evolution Diet.
