How Many Grams Of Carbohydrates Can You Eat On A Low-Carb Diet? Health Benefits Of Replacing Sugars, Starches
Low-carb diets have been popular ever since the Atkins diet became the go-to for weight loss in the early 2000s. While some have questioned whether the high-protein and fat diet is actually healthy, a diet low in carbohydrates and high in protein actually can be very beneficial for weight loss and overall wellbeing.
Dietitian Jon Leech discusses why you may want to consider cutting carbs in this video from Authority Nutrition. He explains that by reducing carbs, many dieters won’t need to count calories as you’ll likely be less hungry by replacing sugar and starches, such as breads and pasta, with more satiating protein and fat. The average person eats more than 200 grams of carbohydrates per day, so low-carb diets would be well below that.
