Low carb diets, low carb foods, low carb diet shakes, low carb everything. It's been around for years now. Unfortunately, it's not working. In fact, well over 90% of people who start a low carb or trendy diet gain all or more of their weight back within a year of losing it. Even worse, epidemics like obesity and diabetes are at all time highs.
This is why you shouldn't be afraid of carbs -- your body NEEDS them. Carbs stop muscle loss, speed up recovery, provide energy to your brain and body, elevate your metabolic rate, and stimulate your body's most important fat-burning hormones. Yes, believe it or not, things like insulin aren't always evil! Your body needs carbs to keep your metabolism healthy, happy, and burning fat.
People who go on chronic low carb diets radically alter their hormones and damage their metabolisms, so their bodies simply won't burn fat. In fact, it only takes as little as one week of cutting carbs to start losing muscle, slowing down your metabolism and destroying your fat-burning hormones.
Besides, do you really want to constantly obsess over calories, count carbs all the time and deprive yourself of your favorite foods? Of course you don't...you'll be miserable.
But there is a "smart" approach you can take to ensure you get all these benefits of carbs WITHOUT fat-storage. It can even help you heal any previous damage you may have done from crash dieting.
