Low-carb diets: Only the START to regain health and lose weight

While a low-carb diet is an excellent choice to achieve goals such as weight loss, stacking the odds in favor of reversing type 2 diabetes and fatty liver, and beginning the process of reversing skin rashes and autoimmune diseases, you don’t want to make the mistake of ending your efforts at diet alone.

Regardless of the variety of low-carb diet you choose—Atkins, paleo, keto, Wheat Belly, Undoctored, etc.—failure to add several components, especially prebiotic fibers that nourish bowel flora, can limit or even undo all of your health benefits. You can further your success by also addressing common nutrient deficiencies that plague modern life, especially vitamin D, omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA, magnesium, and iodine. Engaging only in a diet without addressing these additional factors would be like jumping out of a plane with only half of a parachute–it’s better than nothing, but hardly a full solution.

In short, restoration of optimal health begins with diet, but should include several additional components. This helps ensure ideal metabolic health and further protects you from conditions such as type 2 diabetes, fatty liver, irritable bowel syndrome, diverticular disease, even autoimmune and neurodegenerative diseases. This, of course, is how we do it in the Wheat Belly lifestyle.

The original WBB post was found on the: ⎆Infinite Health Blog when this mirror was last revised, but accessing it there requires an unnecessary separate blog membership. The copy of it above is complete, and has been re-curated and enhanced for the Inner Circle membership.
