Many other high carb vs low carb metabolic ward studies have shown no difference in total weight loss when controlling for total calories.

Controlling total calories is obviously the name of the game, but LCHF diets help to curb calorie cravings because there are less sugar spikes. Obviously replacing things like potatoes with vegetables create great calorie deficits as well.

LCHF diets work really well for hundreds of thousands, if not millions of people. I'm not really sure why there is so much hate for them. Probably for the same reason why people hate vegans and probably politically motivated


There's no hate.

It's when you start mouthing off at people who eat carbs and blame obesity on carbs and claim that endurance athletes don't need carbs and other science denying things you've said in this thread.

Stop preaching.

Ketotards = Vegans = CrossFitards = Jehovah Witnesses

Just don't.

There's more than one way to skin the cat.
If you think eating red meat is the pinnacle of health, go right for it.

But seriously, have you tried DMT?
