How LOW CARB DIET Is Important? By Dietitian Jyoti Chabria

Hi, I am Jyothi Chabria. Carbohydrates is
basically a source of energy. Carbohydrates
are converted into fats in the body so if
one consumes too much of carbohydrates it
converts into fat and leads to obesity. So,
that’s why we all recommend as nutritionists,
low carbohydrate diet. Carbs are of 2 types,
there are complex carbohydrates and there
are refined carbohydrates. Complex carbohydrates
are basically foods which are white in color, just for as a hint
Things like rice, pasta, noodles,
biscuits, cookies made out of flour. So, a
low carbohydrate diet would be something which
we do not include all these things. Now a
days in market there are lot of derivatives
which you get, which are made out of wheat
flour rather than rice flour and other things
which are high on carbs. Even things like
corn are rich in starch, so they are high
in carbohydrates. What is the reason for not
wanting to take too much of carbohydrates
as I told you is it that it converts to fat
which gets stored in the liver, and leads
to obesity finally. But, today you have lot
of other options which are low carb foods
like wheat grain attas, pops. You have lot
of snacks made out of wheat base today, you
have ragi, you have barley, you have jowar,
they are all low in carbohydrates so they
are recommended rather than taking carbs as
in even carbs even the fat as in ghee, butter,
lard, lard is animal fat is not recommended
today because round the globe in fact even
now a days you see round the globe people
are so conscious about what they are eating,
that’s the reason you have lot of low carbohydrate
salad dressings and you have yogurt based
things, flavored yogurts which were not there
probably in earlier times. So the diet would
consist of various millet’s in fact today,
things like finger millet, you have the fox
tail millet. So these are derivatives which
are used, they are used in combination of
atta’s today or flour’s because the multi
grain works far better than just having one
nutrient. You get the best of all worlds.
