The plant extract berberine can give your lower-carb, higher-fat diet a boost.
Fat, as in dietary fat, provides a means to not only losing weight but feeling better while doing it.
We now know that excessive consumption of simple carbohydrates is the real reason people have a hard time with weight control. Eating foods high in sugar and refined grains causes blood sugar to spike and then crash, leading to carb cravings and weight gain.
This explains why fat is the foundation of LCHF (lower-carb, higher-fat) eating plans. Drastically cutting carb intake halts the glucose rollercoaster by switching the body over to steadier-burning fat as its main fuel source.
While LCHF diets are effective, they can take some getting used to for newbies. The good news is that nature provides substances that can help carb cutters get the most from a high-fat diet. One of them is berberine, a plant extract with an extensive history of use in Asia’s traditional healing systems.
The idea behind LCHF dieting is simple: Drop levels of glucose (blood sugar), the body’s usual fuel source, to the point at which the body goes into a state called ketosis and fat becomes the primary fuel. That’s when fat-based substances called ketones are released, which give the keto (short for “ketogenic”) diet its name.
