You really are what you eat!

There's a reason why a heavy night of drinking leaves skin blotchy and red, and why your nails and hair suffer after a junk-binge. The foods you put into your body have a direct impact on how you look on the outside. Whether it's too much of one thing or too little of another, the signs will be there for you - and everyone else - to see.
The body always prioritises essential functions so if your diet is not optimal then your hair, skin, nails and other parts of the body will reflect a suboptimal nutritional status. Dry, lank hair that frequently moults or begins to thin, dry skin and poor quality nails are just some of the examples."


How Do Low-Carb Diets Work?

By restricting carbohydrates drastically to a mere fraction of that found in the typical diet, the body goes into a different metabolic state called ketosis, whereby it burns its own fat for fuel. Normally the body burns carbohydrates for fuel -- this is the main source of fuel for your brain, heart ,and many other organs. A person in ketosis is getting energy from ketones, little carbon fragments that are the fuel created by the breakdown of fat stores. When the body is in ketosis, you tend to feel less hungry, and thus you're likely to eat less than you might otherwise. However, ketosis can also cause health problems. As a result, your body changes from a carbohydrate-burning engine into a fat-burning engine. So instead of relying on the carbohydrate-rich items you might typically consume for energy, and leaving your fat stores just where they were before (alas, the hips, belly, and thighs), your fat stores become a primary energy source. The purported result is weight loss.
