What are the Disadvantages of Low Carbohydrate Diet?
Low carbohydrate diets do more harm than good to the body. Losing weight is an obsession and needs to be done in a controlled and healthy manner. It might take time but does not put its toll on the body.
Low carb diets have the following harmful effects on the body-
- Aggravate and/or even cause gout
- Kidney stones
- Rise in cholesterol levels
- Heart ailments
- Loss in muscle tissue
- Poor exercise capacity
Cutting down carbs suddenly and drastically can lead to temporary health problems like-
- Weakness (due to nutitional deficiency)
- Constipation (as the diet is deficient in fiber)
