What is low-carb, high-protein?

Low carb, high protein has sparked the attention of many. People who follow this way of eating are losing weight, toning up and feeling great, and it’s really not as hard as it sounds! 

Remember that all carbs are not bad! Carbs are essential and needed for a healthy diet, but not all carbs are created equal.

The type and quality of carbohydrate you are consuming are essential when it comes to following a low-carb, high-protein diet. 

How does it work?

Low carb, high protein focuses on eliminating refined carbohydrates (think of things like bread, pastries, pasta, white rice, potato chips, sugar, jams, lollies, ice cream, and cakes).

And replacing them with good quality protein, fats and complex carbohydrates (these are things like leafy green vegetables, cauliflower, tomato, quinoa and berries). 


Carbohydrates are the body’s main source of energy. When the amount of carbohydrate you consume is reduced, your body then turns to burning stored fat to use for energy.

That’s not the only physiological thing that occurs when eating low-carb, high protein…

Your blood sugar and insulin levels become more stable, you will be fuller for longer, your gut microbiome can improve, and your blood triglycerides may decrease.

All this results in fast weight loss, improved immune function and moods, as well as reduced risk of type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease.
