Re: Low Carb diets always make you gain weight in the long run. Here is why.
i think the reasoning is that not all carbs are created equally. some carbs get converted to 'sugars' quicker than others. veggie carbs are 'slow' carbs in that they con't get converted quickly. bread, pasta, crappy food etc are fast carbs. protein, good fats (like olive oil, avacodoes etc) and veggies are what we should be eating the most of.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 11698818


It has nothing to do with the type of carbs.

Look at FACTS

JAPAN EATS 80% CARBS- They are thin.

US Eats 50% carbs= WE ARE FAT.

I've seen obese vegans because they drizzle olive oil on their salads.

Judge by RESULTS. RESULTS PROVE THAT HIGH PROTEIN DIETS GIVE YOU GOUT.

Results prove I'm right.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 5616706


the people re-gain the weight when they go back to carbs. lets see.. i lost 2 to 3 lbs a month for 2.5 years.... havent put a pound back on. almost 4 yrs now. LOL

also, the OP forgets one very important aspect and that is brain chemistry, fat satiates and allows one to feel an overall calming effect.

mind you there are many different types of people and not one cookie cutter diet is recommended for all. i think that is where the OP really goes astray.

Low carb diets do work, and quite well I might add. True if you don't change eating habbits when done and continue to stuff your face with cabr laden goodies, then yes the fat will come back.

The science behind low carb is just that scientific fat. Restricting the carb intake, which your body is used to digesting and eating protein and fats, pulls a fast one on the metabolism. The digestive system when it comes to digesting the proteins and fats determines it is too much effort to perform this function for energy, so it then uses stored fat for current energy needs. The proteins and fats are then duked out.

Personally I like the diet because it is also refered to as 'the drinkers diet', I don't have to give up my prefered method of decompression.

Re: Low Carb diets always make you gain weight in the long run. Here is why.
I've low carbed it every spring, just as I am now, for the last decade, drink vodka instead of beer(vodka no carbs), drop like 35lbs by summer (end of june), look much better, I do excercise regularly, cheat one day a week(sunday), by tuesday I'm back in ketosis. When all is said and done I attempt to form better eating habbitts and about 10lbs come back on. then inevitably around christmas stress time I eat like one of those chicks who has cottage cheese going down her thighs and wears those big poofy pasely dresses that used to be table cloths, you know the one's with dark hair, mustache, and when she moves just right the slight seperation of her ass crack causes an odor to whaft through the room.......well any way I eat like one of them for a month or so, and bamm as soon as the nice weather comes around I wake up out of glutonnous slumber and realize I've gained it all back, full circle, one year....yes I've been doing it a decade, people don't think of me as fat even at my heavy wieght.

Because low carb diets are starvation diets.


People think that the complex carbs in a donuts is what is making them Fat but it's the fact that 60% of the calories in a donuts are fat calories.

The United States eats the highest percentage of fat and protein in their diet of any industrialized Nation so it should be no surprise that they are the fattest.


Japan, which eats highest percentage carbs out of any industrialized nation. Is the thinnest.


European nations fall in between with both with the fat consumed and with obesity rates.

See a pattern.


Low carb diets are complete horseshit. You might lose weight initially but you will wreck your metabolism which means in the long run you will gain it all back and then some.

1 gram of fat has 9 calories.
1 gram of carbs has 4 calories.


I can go on.

My friend drinks 10 Sodas/day and eats rice/fruits/vegetables and is thin. In fact most thin people I see eat all of the carbs they want. They don't restrict them at all.

EVERY SINGLE PERSON I'VE SEEN DO LOW CARB GAINS THE WEIGHT BACK.

Hell even Atkins was 260 fucking pounds when he died. OBESE
 Quoting: Dan 5616706



you know little about health. Try the Paleo diet, which is basically eating like a cave man. Plenty of energy and solid as a rock, thats how I roll. Don't gimme that horse crap that carbs are necessary. Get em from veggies and some fruit.

That is a fact. He was over 260 pounds.


Why should I take advise from you people when I'm the one sitting at 8% body body fat. Bye.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 5616706


Last week, the Wall Street Journal reported that Dr. Atkins weighed 258 pounds when he died, which, for a man of his height, 6 feet, is medically obese. The Journal said that it got its information from the Medical Examiner's Report forwarded from the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine. The PCRM, it turns out, got its information from Dr. Robert Fleming, a Nebraska cardiologist and longtime critic of the Atkins diet.

How Fleming got it from the New York Medical Examiner is still unclear. He says he did nothing wrong, and yet the medical examiner's office has issued an apology to Atkins' widow, Veronica Atkins, for mistakenly releasing the papers to Fleming. That office has called for an investigation of Fleming's conduct by the Nebraska Health Department.

Thing is, Atkins died from skull fractures that he got when he slipped on some ice. And he weighed 195 pounds at that time. One writer (cited below) has balked at that figure because it was taken from an echocardiogram report which, he claims, might not be the doctor's actual weight. But the figure was verified by Dr. Stuart Trager, Atkins' personal physician and head of the Atkins Physicians Council. And while it is not the ideal weight, by any means, it is nowhere near obese, according to the BMI calculator from the Centers for Disease Control.


[link to boards.straightdope.com]



Dr. Stuart Trager of the Atkins Physicians Council and the widow, Veronica Atkins, lambasted the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine -- a group of doctors who oppose the Atkins diet. The Wall Street Journal article said the panel had sent the medical report to the newspaper, and Trager and Veronica Atkins accused the group of illegally obtaining it.

The committee and the newspaper both declined to comment.

Trager said the weight cited in the medical report was added between the time of Atkins' accident and his death. He said Atkins weighed less than 200 pounds at the time he was injured.

"During his coma, as he deteriorated and his major organs failed, fluid retention and bloating dramatically distorted his body and left him at 258 pounds at the time of his death, a documented weight gain of over 60 pounds," the doctor said in a written statement. "How and why the Journal reported that he was obese remains the only unanswered question in this pathetic situation."

Trager said the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine should have "understood that this was not obesity."

I am a runner. I love carbs. hf

Well, be glad you don't have lp(A)... Remember Jim Fixx?

If you have lp(A), you can suffer heart attack even if you run all the time. Best way to keep lp(A) from making it worse is by cutting carbs.

Ironic, huh?

Read Wheat Belly, Heart Scan Blog, Track Your Plaque, etc.

We all gonna die sooner or later.

In the meantime, I got a hot body, I can eat whatever I want, and I feel great. I can also out run the cops, if needed.tomato

Re: Low Carb diets always make you gain weight in the long run. Here is why.
Been on keto for 6 months now, took 12 weeks to lose 40lbs and now I am maintaining my weight by fluctuating between the 30-100 ratio to 50-100 ratio. +- 5lbs a day and it is still going great!

No idea what the purpose of the OP is, maybe it didn't work for him or he couldn't stop himself from cheating. It is true that if you are in ketosis and you intake too many carbs, you will regain what you lost plus extra! It's a cycle that has certain delays you need to respect while going on or off of.

I wouldn't recommend keto to everyone, it takes motivation, caring and willpower. It was perfect for me since I lived a pretty sedentary life, not exercising much... Cut all sugars from my life and never felt better about it!

This is the first link that turned me on to Ketosis, maybe it can help you out!
