|Are Low Carb Diets Good
or Bad for Weight Loss Success?
Everybody has heard of “low carb" diets -- since they are emerging
as the newest trend in dieting.
But do they really work? ...And if so, are they the solution to
weight loss that everybody is looking for?
We don’t think so, because most low carb diets have several problems
which make losing weight very difficult for the “average” dieter.
For example, if you follow the Atkins diet (a popular low carb
program) then the restriction on carbs for the first couple weeks is
very severe (by almost any standards).
The Atkins program allows just 20 grams of "net carbs" per day during the
first phase of the diet (which usually lasts for 2 weeks).
Just to give you an idea of how few carbs that really is – even a
large apple has more than 20 grams of "net carbs".
This low level of carbs is often too severe for the
“average” dieter to tolerate for 2 weeks straight, and in fact eating such a low level of
carbs can make a person feel “weak”
and “miserable” all day long (because your body needs more carbs
than that for energy).
Other low carb diets (such as the South Beach Diet) are not quite as
severe as the Atkins Plan, but in our opinion even the South Beach
Diet is not as easy to follow as it could be.
We believe that a successful diet needs to be easy to follow –
because that’s the only way that people will stick to the diet and
We believe that diets should not make average people feel
“miserable” and “weak” all day long, because if a diet makes people
feel miserable and weak then it’s going to be very difficult for
average dieters to adhere to such programs.
We’re not saying that all low carb diets are as restrictive as the
Atkins Diet is, but we're saying that most low carb diets are so
hard to follow that “average dieters” will probably wind up feeling
hungry and weak all day long (which is not a good thing for dieting
success in our opinion).
We believe that “low carbs” is not the answer to losing weight,
since your body needs a reasonable amount of all 3 types of calories to
lose weight consistently (protein, carbs, and fat).
The truth is that your body needs a reasonable amount of protein, carbs and fat calories
To lose weight quickly you must eat all 3 types of calories in the
right proportions, and that’s why most dieters fail. They fail
because nobody knows what the right proportions of calories should
To begin losing weight fast we recommend using the new Fat Burning Diet shown below -- since there are no specific "portion limits" at any meal (and dieters can eat as much as they need to at each meal). Also, unlimited amounts of certain condiments can be eaten with every meal.
This is a brand new type of diet never
