By including high protein foods in a low carb diet you can help control the effects
1. Restrict carb intake
Carbohydrates stimulate the production of insulin, which promotes the storage of glycerol's. When sugar is unavailable as an energy source (from
carbohydrates), the body preferentially uses these glycerol's for energy.
2. Maintain your protein intake
Protein is not easily converted into fat and is not easily used by the body as a source of fuel. So when you follow a low carb diet your body has to work harder to burn protein as fuel. To avoid muscle mass being used as a fuel source, additional protein is
consumed to ensure that glycerol's are preferentially used for energy.
