A low-carb diet is generally used for losing weight. Some low-carb diets may have health benefits beyond weight loss, such as reducing risk factors associated with diabetes and metabolic syndrome.
Generally food contains fat, carbohydrate, protein, vitamins, and micro and macro nutrients. Carb contains 70% of the total nutrient value of any food. Carb is the source of raw energy as it is easily digestible. Excess carb is converted into fat and stored in the muscles. So if we take a balanced diet where the carbohydrate remains in check, the conversion to fat remains in check. If the food contains heavy quantity of carb and there is no need to burn the carb then the fat deposition takes place.
A low-carb diet bounds carbohydrate —those found in grains, starch-based vegetables, and fruit — and highlights food rich in protein and fat. Many sorts of low-carb diets persist with varying limitations on the types and amounts, you can eat.
