For years, most dieters faithfully counted calories and believed in the mantra: Calories in, calories out. Translation: Burn more calories than you eat, and you’ll lose weight.
The problem with that theory: It’s a big fat failure, as documented in the superb book “The Big Fat Surprise: Why Butter, Meat and Cheese Belong in a Healthy Diet.” As a result, in recent years, researchers have turned their attention to low carb diets, which have been shown to burn up to 300 calories more per day than low-fat diets, even when dieters eat the same number of calories.
From Paleo diets to ketogenic plans to high fat weight loss, this site is designed to provide insights into the world of low carb diets. I welcome comments and suggestions, from books you’d like to see reviewed to success stories to recipes.
