Benefits of Low Carb Diet

Low carb diet offers a range of documented health benefits along with relatively rapid weight loss.

Low carb eating plans typically lead to:
  • Better blood-gluco control in diabetes, means stable blood-sugar levels.
  • Better insulin sensitivity.
  • Improved cholesterol levels and lower triglycerides.

Low carb diets do not provide long term benefits in weight loss. They can also result in fatigue due to decrease in the level of blood glucose

Mental Exercise

Mental exercise refers to the performance of some activity in order to develop or maintain mental fitness.

It is used to perform an intellectual stimulating task such as solving a puzzle (for examples crosswords or sudoku) or engaging in a game of chess. Learning a new language is also a mental exercise.

Mental exercise is a very efficient nootropic to prevent deterioration of cognition.
