The effect of low carbon diet is still controversial in the medical profession. Proponents argue that a low-carbon diet can reduce weight (about 10% on average) and blood cholesterol levels (around 5% on average) to some extent, reducing the risk of heart disease, but whether it is effective in the long term is uncertain. Opponents believe that few people can stick to a low carbon diet for a long time. The study found that only 1% of people can stick to it for a long time, with an average of 19 months. In addition, people who eat low carbon diet will eat more protein and fat if they eat less carbohydrate, which runs counter to the health concept of the medical and nutritional circles and is not suitable for patients with coronary heart disease, gout and kidney disease.
The “National Energy Conservation and Emission Reduction Manual” pointed out that each person wastes 0.5 kg less pork per year, which can save about 0.28 kg of standard coal and reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 0.7 kg. If the national average reduces pork waste by 0.5kg per person per year, it can save about 353000 tons of standard coal and reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 911000 tons per year. More data show that eating 1,000 grams of beef is equivalent to emitting 36.5 kilograms of carbon dioxide. However, if you eat the same amount of fruits and vegetables, the carbon dioxide emission is only 1/9 of this value. Therefore, eating more vegetables and less meat is not only good for health, but also can reduce carbon emissions.
The liver converts glucose to glycogen for storage. These stored glycogen meet approximately 12 hours of glucose supply. After all the carbohydrates consumed at the current meal are digested, the liver begins to reconvert the stored glycogen into glucose and release it into the blood stream to maintain the glycemic balance. At this point the body undergoes lipolysis, which also begins to break down the fat inside the fat cells and release the fatty acids into the blood. Tissues that do not need glucose for energy, such as muscle cells, begin to burn fatty acids. This reduces the need for glucose and ensures that the nerve cells have access to glucose.
