Are you on a low carb way of eating but not seeing results?
A low carbohydrate way of eating is enjoyable and sustainable. However it is important to know that it is not a one size fits all approach. Everyone processes carbohydrates differently – this is determined by a variety of factors such as genetics, level of physical activity, co-existing medical conditions and medication effects. Additionally a low carbohydrate diet can be used for a variety of purposes such as weight management, increased energy, optimising sporting performance or chronic disease management just to name a few.
There are many resources available such as low carb Facebook communities, recipe websites and books like the CSIRO Low Carb Diet books, but they don’t take into account your unique health needs and goals. This is where consulting a specialist low carb team can give you the best chance at successfully starting and sustaining a low carb way of eating.
Ensuring a smooth transition to a low carb way of eating is especially important in those who may have pre-existing medical conditions and/or are on any prescription medications. This applies particularly to people with:
- Type 1 or Type 2 Diabetics
- Cardiovascular disease
- Pre-existing nutritional deficiencies
- Gastrointestinal disorders such as reflux or irritable bowel syndrome
Seeing a trained professional can also help safely incorporate more advanced techniques such as therapeutic fasting or ketone supplementation at the right time for you.
