What do you think of low-carb diets?

What the study discovered was that the amount of carbohydrates, protein and fat that you eat may matter to you for health reasons, however, not for fat loss. When it comes to losing weight, it's about counting calories.



IMHO, Izzy, the answer just isn't to lessen carbs -- it's to add more physical activity into every day.

Just recently, the US government completed a multi-year study that investigated the efficacy of different "fad" diets. All participants were wear a low-calorie diet that focused on either low-carb, low-fat or high-protein.

One pound of fat = 3, 500 kcalories. If you want to lose one pound of fat per week, you need to eat 3, 500 kcalories less OR burn off that amount through exercise or Obat Pengecil Perut perhaps a combination of both. Full stop. How you get there is totally irrelevant.

The thing that scares me about low-carb diets is that it puts you into a state of ketosis. In a healthy person, that must not be a problem. But there are near 20 million people in the United States alone that suffer from pre-diabetes and still another 7 million that are undiagnosed diabetics. For them, putting their human body purposely into a state of ketosis could quickly result in ketoacidosis with a whole host of very serious medical problems.
