Scientists say that overeating does not increase obesity, which is due to the high content of carbohydrates in our diet.

If you are trying to lose weight, carbohydrates can be your worst enemy.

According to a paper published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition in December last year, “Today” highlighted the promising part of the recent show that the key to losing weight is cutting back on carbohydrates instead of worrying too much about balancing the calories we eat and burn. .

“The body fights calorie restriction,” says the author. “Today,” David Ludwig said.

Calorie restriction makes people hungry, but at the same time slows down the metabolism, says the show.

“So the calories in the blood are not too much, too little.”

A popular keto diet is a low-carbohydrate, high-fat diet that puts your body into ketosis, a process in which your body burns fats for fuel, not carbohydrates.

When our body produces too much insulin, fat cells are programmed to store calories, he explained.

Ludwig, an endocrinologist at Harvard Medical School and a professor of pediatrics and nutrition, advocates a “carbohydrate-insulin model” of obesity.

The pancreas produces a hormone called insulin to control the amount of sugar or glucose in our blood, where it acts as a “key” to help glucose enter the cells in our body, according to Healthline.

Ludwig believes that our thinking about weight loss is backwards.

“Given the choice between bread and butter, we’ve been focusing on getting rid of fat for years,” Ludwig said.

“But maybe between the two, bread is a big issue.”


According to him, after eating too many calories, you do not gain weight, but the high content of sugar in some carbohydrates causes our body to store too much energy, which in turn leads us to eat more.

When the calories we drink are more than the calories we burn over time, we start developing fat stores, the doctor said. Karl Nadolsky, endocrinologist specializing in diabetes, metabolism and obesity.

“The whole world sees obesity as an energy balance,” he said. Robert Lustig, a professor of pediatrics at the Department of Endocrinology at the University of California, San Francisco, described a similar pattern in 2006 that led to excess insulin weight gain.

“So it’s calories, calories. So it’s about two behaviors: fluidity and laziness. So, if you’re fat, it’s your fault. So diet and exercise. So different calories can be part of a balanced diet.” ”

According to Ludwig and his authors, the theory of energy balance, in which people perceive more than they burn, explains why people gain weight, but this “why” is ignored.

The general recommendation, “Eat less and be physically active,” is that we tell people it doesn’t work well. The results have not been very successful, “said Dr. Samuel Klein, director of the Center for Human Nutrition at the University of Washington School of Medicine.

However, Ludwig’s paper has caused controversy in the medical community, with researchers claiming that the work was “protected and ridiculed.”

“If losing weight was as simple as eating fewer carbohydrates, you might think that two-thirds of Americans who diet every year would still have some success by now,” he said. Yoni Fredhoff, associate professor of family medicine at the University of Ottawa and medical director of the Institute of Bariatric Medicine at the Center for Non-Surgical Weight Management.


Nevertheless, while some patients are giving significant results, meaningful studies on low-carbohydrate diets are currently underway.

Dr. Jeff Volek, a registered nutritionist and professor of humanities at Ohio State University, has been studying low-carb diets for more than 25 years, and studies on the show “Today” show that people on a carbohydrate diet can lose up to several times. 10% of their body weight.

But the people are stopping him.

Shaw pointed to one of his patients, a 42-year-old woman who enrolled in a 2019 low-carbohydrate diet study, which contains 37 grams of carbohydrates per day, which is rich in protein and beneficial fats such as avocados and nuts. .

In six weeks she lost 20 kilograms, but three years later she lost 88 kilograms.

He said it was “not easy” to give up his favorite foods like “today” pasta and potatoes, but the result was worth it.

“When you limit carbohydrates, the body burns its own fat better because there isn’t a lot of sugar in the fuel for fuel,” Volek told Today.

Volek explained to Fox News why a carbohydrate-free diet often doesn’t work.

“The vast majority of adults in the U.S. (over 100 million people) consume too many carbohydrates compared to tolerance, so low-fat diets don’t work for most people. Strong studies show that reduction reduces. is, ”he said.
