Four hour diet is slow Carbohydrate diet
Low carbohydrate diets are based on the principle that a diet low in carbohydrates leads to decreased production of body’s insulin, resulting in consumption of fat stores as energy source.
When fat stores in a body are used as main energy source, Ketones (a by-product) are excreted in the urine. Characterized by nail varnish (acetone), smelling breath and causes side effects such as nausea, fatigue and loss of appetite.
There are many different versions of the low carbohydrate diet, such as Dr. Atkins New Diet Revolution, Protein Power, Neanderthin, The Carbohydrate Addict's Lifestyle Plan, Life without Bread, and others. All of them, however, have one thing in common - a very strict reduction in the consumption of carbohydrates. Most low carbohydrate diets replace carbohydrates with fats and proteins. Although diets vary in their recommendations, as a general rule, a low carbohydrate diet is synonymous with a high-fat and moderate protein diet. Those on a low carbohydrate diet should get at least 60 to 70 percent of their daily calorie intake from fat. Carbohydrates should make up less than 10 percent, and in some cases, less than 5 percent of daily calorie intake. . This help you lose weight and keep fit.
