Story Highlights

  • Low carb desserts should be part of a healthy lifestyle.
  • Adults should consume at least 135 grams of “good” carbohydrates daily.
  • Net carbs are the amount of carbs that significantly effects the sugar levels in the blood stream.
  • From ice cream to chocolate mousse and brownies, low carb desserts are as diverse as the regular desserts.
  • Its hard to notice the difference between low carb desserts and regular desserts if prepared properly.
Carbohydrates are one among the basic and important essential food groups for the body. They’re macro-nutrients that give your body energy it needs to function properly. Carbohydrates supply fuel to your central nervous system and provides you with energy for working muscles. Carbs are also responsible for preventing the protein from being used as energy source and enabling fat metabolism. The fibers, starches and sugars found in grains, fruit, veggies and dairy products act as the main source of Carbohydrates.

According to the National Institute of Health, adults should consume at least 135 grams of carbohydrates daily. However, it’s crucially important to consume “good” carbs ( high in nutrients, low in calories and fat) and avoid “bad” carbs. (high in sodium, fats and calories, and are low in fiber and many nutrients).

Why should you choose low carb foods and desserts?baking-soda-bath-weight-loss

Low-carb diets tend to restrict some food groups to a great extent, making us think it’s impossible to survive on such a diet. But in fact, once you get used to your low-carb diet, you’ll never want to return to your previous eating plan again. The low carb diet may be key to living a healthy lifestyle and keeping your body in great physical shape, so it’s definitely worth trying.

Too much carbs spike blood sugar levels and lead to a number of serious diseases, including heart disease, diabetes and blood pressure. When you switch to a low carb diet, you start having healthy blood sugar and insulin levels. This boosts the amount of fat your body burns, helping you lose weight and keep it off.12

When you cook correctly, it’s hard to notice the difference between the low carb meals and desserts compared to regular ones. Low-carb desserts are less sweet than regular ones. However, proper use of natural sweeteners will turn your low carb dessert into a powerful weapon against sugar cravings.

What is the science behind low carb desserts?

As you consume carbohydrates, they are converted to glucose and are instantly burned for fuel (energy). If you eat too many carbs (regular desserts are overloaded with them), your body is overloaded with carbohydrates (fuel that can be used for energy) which will prevent the body from using other energy sources such as fat or protein, leading to weight gain and blood sugar spikes. Since the body does not need all this energy immediately, the excess glucose is eventually converted to fat!3

Reducing carb intake will force your body to burn any stored fat, creating another source of the body’s energy called ketones. The body uses ketones instead of sugar and when it happens, it enters ketosis, a metabolic state that involves burning fat-derived ketones rather than carb-derived glucose.4

Low carb desserts do contain sweeteners but natural ones. From ice cream to chocolate mousse and brownies, low carb desserts are just as diverse and incredible as sugar-packed desserts. The taste is almost similar too, albeit you will notice the difference between sugar and stevia first, but it’s only in the beginning. You’ll get used to it with time.

What are ‘net carbs’?

Net carbs are the total carbohydrate amount in the food minus the amount of fiber and any sugar alcohols used. 5 Meals and desserts that are low in net carbs don’t have a great impact on your blood sugar and thus you are less likely to gain weight and develop diseases, such as diabetes, stroke, cardiovascular disease and cancer.

There is no better way to bring people together than with desserts.
