How Can I Uncover Hidden Sugar And Prevent Carb Creep?


Many low carb dieters fall victim to "carb creep," which is triggered carb binges, caused by creeping intakes of carbs. This is particularly a problem after finishing the stricter early phases of their plans. For instance, low carb dieters who use Dr. Atkins' prescription often fail to follow his plan after the induction phase of the diet. Instead, they go on an unplanned, generic "low carb" diet.

This uncontrolled deviation from the pathoften causes low carb dieters to slowly scale-up carb intake amounts in an unmeasured fashion.

Low carb dieters can also fall into the"carb creep" trap by consuming productsthat contain hidden sugars. Because of insulin spikes, hidden sugars can trigger "hormonal hunger," or cravings, which can then lead to binges.

This is why it is vital for low carb dieters tofollow an overarching dietary plan that involvesslowly scaling-up carb consumption in theorder of around five grams per week (asAtkins suggests).

It is also vital for low carb dieters to carefullyinspect food labels to insure that productsdo not contain "hidden" carbs. This issomething Type II Diabetics must do regularly--and it is fairly simple.

Medicine.Net suggests that lowcarb dieters look for the followingingredients on food labels toavoid carb creep: sucrose, honey, syrup, corn sweetener, glucose, dextrose, high-fructose corn syrup, fructose, molasses, maltose, fruit juice concentrate or lactose.

According to Medicine.Net, ifa product contains the above ingredients, it is likely to also contain a significant amount of sugar.

If you are on a low carb diet, itis essential that you factor all ofthis in and develop a plan beforeyou shop at the grocery store.You should consult with your doctor or recheck your selected low carb plan to determinehow many carbs you should consume each day in your givendietary phase.

You should then plan a diet thatfollows this strict prescription andfactors in "hidden carbs." This practicalapproach will help you identify the causeof your stall, and eliminate it by using methods suggested by your low carb dietary plan.
