Is A Low-Carb Diet Deflating Your Butt?
By NewBeauty Staff |
A well-balanced diet coupled with exercise is essential for maintaining a firm butt. Low-carb and high-protein diets may be all the rage right now, but according to Los Angeles celebrity nutritionist Christine Avanti, author of Skinny Chicks Don't Eat Salad, low-carb diets aren't necessarily the way to go if you're trying to target your rear end.
"The butt is primarily made up of muscle," Avanti explains, "Low-carb diets cause the body to break down muscle tissue, which can lead to a flat butt."
But that doesn't mean you should load up on carbs, either. Avanti recommends a balance of proteins, carbohydrates, and good fats like nuts and seeds.
"This way, you're saving muscle and getting rid of a layer of fat so your butt plumps up and gets round, preventing it from getting flabby and loose."
