The Anabolic Diet is yet another low carbohydrate type of diet out there that claims you can reach your goals in a faster amount of time, without the degree of resulting muscle loss that is typically seen on other diet programs. It basically runs on the premises that you are going to try and turn your body into a ‘fat burning organism’ rather than one who burns carbohydrates. The idea is that if you can get your body to switch modes and start burning fat and keep it there, you will be better able to get down to the lower body fat level you are looking for. The biggest benefit of this, is when you are running on fat for fuel, you usually do not see as big of hunger fluctuations as when you are on carbohydrates therefore it makes the dieting process much more tolerable. Who will do best on the Anabolic Diet are those who tolerate low carbohydrate diets fairly well. A few individuals simply do not feel good on them at all and these are the people that should likely avoid this diet protocol. A good way to tell if you are one who does well with low carb is how you generally feel after eating a carbohydrate heavy meal compared with how you feel after you have had a low carbohydrate intake for a few days.
