Aaaand here we go again... Low carb does not mean NO carbs. We just stay away from overly processed CRAP carbs and stick to whole foods (veggies, legumes, fruit, whole grains) and away from white flour, excess sugar, etc.
Please, for the love of food, do the research before writing an article mmkay? It's not an all you can eat meat fest either, 80% of the plate is veggies/fruit while the other 20% is protein and healthy fats (usually the healthy fat is in the meat, like fish).

EVERY BODY IS DIFFERENT. TRACK HONESTLY -- IF IT ACTUALLY WORKS FOR YOU IN LOSING OR MAINTAINING THEN KEEP IT IN YOUR FOOD GROUP.

Having Diabetes 2 here, my body reacts poorly to too many carbs. Managing them is a day to day concern. We can eat something else but carbs for our nutrition. It is difficult to eat the full compliment of carbs and still have low blood sugar scores. It is a day to day battle.

No one eats no carbs, nearly impossible because the veg and fruits you eat on KETO diet have carbs. We restrict carbs like some people choose to limit calories or not eat meat. I am not diabetic but type 2 runs rampant in my family so I decided to stave it off as long as possible. Just counting calories and eating good carbs did not give me consistent lasting weight loss results as Keto has.

If it is on the internet, it must be truth, Right? Ted Talks, Youtube, Buy-my-book web sites? No, thank you. The internet is full of BS. I'll listen to my health care provider...at least I know where their education came from.

I don't bother with specialty diets or whatever FAD is going on at any given time.

Good information and we should read most things before we try them, if not all. What works for one, does not work for others.

I agree that cutting out any entire food group is ridiculous. I work with a lot of 20 something females who do nothing but eat salads ( some sort of white lettuce) with protein and fruit is a dirty word.

The truth about carbs is FAR DIFFERENT than this article would lead you to believe. Watch this TEDx talk from a cutting-edge endocrinologist who is essentially HEALING her Type-2 diabetic patients by CUTTING their carbs to the bone, and WHY it is working. After that, if you'd like to know more, visit dietdoctor.com for information that will change your life.
