Comparing Effects of the Restricted Carbohydrate Diet and Non-restricte

Comparing Effects of the Restricted Carbohydrate Diet and Non-restricted Carbohydrate Diet   Ã‚  Ã‚  Ã‚  Ã‚  Ã‚  Ã‚  Ã‚  It is recommended by Grosvenor and Smolin in â€Å"Nutrition: From Science to Life,† that if one decides to lose weight, one should consider the contents of the food consumed and incorporate a daily exercise routine.   There are multiple studies to support the idea that a diet that includes a low consumption of carbohydrate and a high consumption of fats, also known as the Atkin’s Diet, will cause one to feel less active compared to others who will include carbohydrate as one of the main food groups in their diet. Participants in a study conducted by Wells and Read in 1996 concluded that they felt significantly less energetic and more fatigue and nauseated after consuming a low-carbohydrate and high-fat meal compared to participants who had a meal that contained 50- 60% carbohydrates. In addition a similar study conducted by Lloyd, Green, and Rogers in 1994 also concluded that a high fat meal causes participants in their study to report more negative feelings. Participants reported that although they felt that they had consumed enough food to satisfy their hunger they also reported that they felt less energetic and their overall moods shows more anxiety, despair, stress and anger compared to other participants who consumed a moderate amount of fat.   Ã‚  Ã‚  Ã‚  Ã‚  Ã‚  Ã‚  Ã‚  Scientists believe the reports of negative moods such as the anxiety, despair, or lack of energy in dieters consuming a carbohydrate-restricted diet may be caused by a physiological reason in the brain. The brain, amongst other organs of the body, uses the components of carbohydrates as its main resource for energy therefore when dieters restrict the... ...rate and high-fat dieters reported that exercising was not helping them lose weight.   Ã‚  Ã‚  Ã‚  Ã‚  Ã‚  Ã‚  Ã‚  Comparison of mood, energy levels, and evaluations of exercise routine differed between dieters consuming a restricted- carbohydrate diet, also known as the Atkins diet, and the dieters who consumed a non-restricted carbohydrate diet shows that dieters consuming a moderate amount of carbohydrates and fat were more satisfied with their diet plan. The reports of mood and energy level directly affect the evaluations of the exercise routine. This comparison exemplifies two important causal concepts: (1) the direct relationship between diet and the ability to exercise to the one’s fullest capability and (2) the importance of moderation of carbohydrates consumed in a diet to fuel the brain with sufficient energy and provide the muscles with enough energy.
