Sure, if you follow the magazines know perfectly that diets low in carbohydrates is in fashion. Not only that, but in bodybuilding every time a competitor starts to prepare to compete and reduce your body fat percentage, the first thing is to reduce carbohydrates in the diet.

The problem is that the carbohydrates are also necessary for the body and when reduced excessively during a prolonged time, it has to perform several chemical adjustments to obtain the fuel compensation of fatty acids instead of fats.
However, the biggest problem stems from the fact that carbohydrates are present in plant foods and to reduce or eliminate not only fail to obtain carbohydrates, or glucose which is the same, but many other substances present in the vegetables, such as vitamins, minerals, phytonutrients, antioxidants, fiber, etc.
