I tried it for about a 6 weeks. The idea is simple. If your body doesn't have any carbs to burn it will burn fat instead. I lost about 12lbs in that 6 weeks. During that time I didn't exercise much more than walking a couple of miles 3 or 4 times a week. I didn't calorie count but I drastically reduced carbs and I ate no "bad" carbs. The worst side effect was constipation.
About 2 weeks ago I began weight training and playing basketball. My neighbor, (who is a trainer), says I need carbs for what I'm doing so I'm back to a more normal diet.
