5. You Are Consuming Too Much Dairy
Like carbs, dairy can spike your insulin levels. Dairy products like yogurt, cheese, milk, and cream are rich in protein, which gets converted to glucose through a metabolic pathway known as gluconeogenesis. This, in turn, results in a spike in the insulin levels. And when this insulin spike continues over a period, the body becomes insulin resistant and the glucose molecules remain in the blood and are not used up by the body. This will ultimately hinder your weight loss. That said, if you balance your total protein intake from dairy and non-dairy sources, you can include dairy products in your diet, provided they are not high in calories.
6. You Are Not Maintaining The Macros Percentage
When you are on a low-carb diet, it is very important that you stick to the macros percentage. Diets like Keto and HFLC are created in a way to induce ketosis in the body and use fat as the source of energy instead of glucose, which you get from sugar, carbs, and protein. If you do not adhere to the fat:carbs:protein ratio, you will not get the desired results. So, adhere to the diet chart and see a miracle happen!
