Dietitian Salih Gürel gave information about the subject. Despite the warnings of dietitians, many people try to lose weight with hearsay and unfortunately believe that they should remove carbohydrates from their lives. When he sees that he lost weight with the removal of carbohydrates from his life, he claims that what he did is right, even that it is a scientific fact. However, although it is quite normal for him to lose weight at first due to the mass of water excreted from his body, he makes a big mistake by thinking that he is getting weaker.
Because; Most of the body weight lost in the first place consists of water. When carbohydrates enter the body, the water that is kept in their cells in case the water density decreases, is thrown out of the body in various ways because it is no longer needed when carbohydrates are cut off.
In this way, instead of losing fat, he loses water from his body. After a while, he believes that he is getting weaker and decides to end the diet, and he regains the weight he lost very quickly.
Of course, it is not limited to this, it also has a health dimension. It has not been shown that long-term carbohydrate restriction can provide more effective results in body weight loss than other diets, but it has been observed that it actually paves the way for negative effects on health.
The adult brain needs 140 grams of glucose daily. When you do not take enough carbohydrates, the amount of glucose entering your body is limited and your brain functions are restricted from continuing to work in their normal course. For this reason, when you cut carbohydrates, the body breaks down fat cells for energy in the absence of carbohydrates. Ketone bodies, which arise as a result of burning fats as energy, are first seen in the blood, and as their amount increases, they begin to pass into the urine. Due to energy loss and ketone accumulation, low-carbohydrate diets cause nausea, headaches, difficulty in breathing, dizziness, weakness, bad breath, Along with symptoms such as frequent urination and fluid loss, it disrupts the sensitive chemistry in the body and causes the dangerous condition of diabetic ketoacidosis.
