Well considering people that were themselves frighteningly thin were among the first to tell me this I'd say their opinion was valid.

Re: Low Carb diets always make you gain weight in the long run. Here is why.
OP is full of shit. The fact of the matter is that a low carb diet can help folks loose weight and gaining it back is no more or less likely than with any other diet.

It doesnt appear that OP knows much about nutrition. Processed carbs and high sugar foods are terrible for you and your metabolism. Proper balance between fat, protien and carbs is key and low overall carb intake (especially white carbs like pasta, potatoes and rice) is best for long term health. The balance depends on your goals (lose or maintain weight/muscle) and your body type/weight/heigth etc.

I lost 30 pounds (215 to 185) in 8 months and went from 25 to 12 percent body fat on a low carb high protein diet. First two months I did not workout. Month 3 through 5 I worked out 3 days per week. Month 6 to present I work out 6 days per week.

Goal is sub 10% bodyfat and then to gain more lean muscle and maintain 10-12% body fat so abs are always visible.

Body is a machine and can be hacked. Calories in versus calories burned...deficit means weight loss. Not rocket science.

The reason people add more weight than they lost when they get off of any diet is that when they cut weight they cut muscle as well. This lowers metabolism and when they eat high calories again this makes them gain weight faster and they become bigger than ever. Viscous negative cycle. Lean muscle equals high metabolism equals fat burning.

Re: Low Carb diets always make you gain weight in the long run. Here is why.
Honestly, the best diet I have implemented was the following:

Eat one meal a day (green veggies and meats only)
Drink coffee all day except for the one meal
only use regular pure cane sugar (speeds up metabolism)
Do not eat any fruits
Do not eat crap (potato chips, candy, etc)

Do this for a month and the pounds will come off (worked for me). I lost over 30 lbs this way. It seems that the coffee and sugar stimulate the metabolism, while the greens/meat dinners feed carbs.

After you get to the weight you want, you can start eating two meals a day but try to stay away from fruits and general junk foods. Lunch, for me, consists of meats, bread, nuts, etc.

Try it and see. Once your system adjusts, you will find that you only need to consume a small portion of food. If you get hunger pains, suck down more coffee. The reason for coffee is that it has less of the bad crap than soda. The only soda I even consume nowadays is Grapefruit soda from Jamaica (no fluoride in water and only pure cane sugar).

Hope this may help someone.
 Quoting: Bithead


I have done that before I was on a med that did not make me feel like eating. I drank a large iced coffee with cane sugar and skim milk for breakfast/lunch and then I ate a dinner salad and like chicken fish etc and I lost like 30 pounds. I don't even think I was doing any daily exercise. Whenever I want to loose weight quickly for something I do that diet it has always worked.

I've lost 40 pounds on a high fat, moderate protein, low carb eating plan, explain that OP. I eat at least 200 grams of fat per day.

The biggest difference between this and Atkins is with the fat added in, I suffer zero cravings.

Chest pains gone, random body pain gone, rash that I had for 20 years gone. Skin is super soft, getting ripped by doing ZERO exercise. I'm almost to my high school walk around weight but I actually look better now even though I worked out in high school. (sports, etc.)

The benefits of this eating plan are too many to list.

Most everyone who diets in any fashion gains the weight back, my dear.

You are mistaken about low carb diets if followed intelligently, also the Atkins diet which meets the description of low carbs.

It is certainly not a starvation diet, quite the opposite.

They work really effectively and your blood sugar gets in balance as well.

If you do not like it don't do it but quit knocking it. It has been the only way I have ever gotten my husband's weight and blood sugar under control. His doctor loves the results.

Re: Low Carb diets always make you gain weight in the long run. Here is why.
In response to the OP's example of Japanese obesity vis-a-vis the U.S., and why the Japanese are thinner on average, a quick search online of the "average daily caloric intake by country" yields the (what should have been intuitively obvious) answer. The Japanese eat far less calories on average then Americans.

Low-carb diets have never been starvation diets, just the opposite in fact. Fat and more specifically protein yield much higher satiety than carbohydrates. It is actually surprisingly difficult to gain weight on a very low-carb, high-fat, high-protein diet, in spite of the caloric density of fat vs. carbohydrates.

A few simple points:
Low-carb diets effectively eliminate glucose/insulin spikes.
Low-carb diets result in higher levels of satiety for the same caloric intake.
Low-carb diets yield a higher loss of body fat vs. lean tissue compared to low-fat diets. Someone losing 5 lbs on a low-carb diet will generally enjoy a much higher percentage of the weight lost being body fat while preserving lean tissue, compared to a low-fat dieter losing the same amount of weight.

I won't post the studies but they can be easily found if you care to look.

Your examples with regard to "your friend who drinks 10 sodas a day", the overweight vegans pouring olive oil on their salad, and even with Atkins himself are irrelevant(Not to mention inaccurate). Genetics play a factor and always produce outliers. Pointing out one or two specific examples of those outliers proves nothing. You must look at research done on large data sets, preferably legitimate scientific studies.

By the way, Atkins actually weighed 195 lbs upon admission to the hospital and gained a considerable amount of water weight due to a combination of water retention and IV fluids supplied to him. Yes, it is very possible to retain 60lbs of water weight in this situation and is not uncommon. ~260 lbs is the weight you commonly see thrown around which was not his true normal body weight before he died. Furthermore, he did not die of Myocardial Infarction as most people think, but in fact from "blunt impact injury of head with epidural hematoma" (He slipped on ice and hit his head). People seem to get some intense satisfaction from saying "See? Atkins was fat and he died of a heart attack, isn't that delightfully ironic?". Spending 30 seconds to research whether that is true or not might rob them of said satisfaction, and so why would they bother?

As a very high level summation of the many studies conducted on this topic, in *general* most people fare better on low-carb diets with regard to almost all relevant factors: amount of weight lost, *type* of weight lost(profoundly important and too often ignored), general feelings of satiety, cholesterol, blood pressure, insulin resistance, etc, etc, etc...

Re: Low Carb diets always make you gain weight in the long run. Here is why.
All you have to do is look at how bodybuilders drop fat for competitions, as they are time proven professionals at shedding fat.

They temporarily carb limit, and it's a proven reality that it works.

However, sustained carb limited diets fail.

Temporary carb reductions are extremely effective, but so is the body at adapting.

You need the proper ratios of carbs, proteins, and fat, and eat frequent meals i.e. 6 times a day.

Eating infrequent large portion high calorie meals is what makes you fat. Especially with lack of exercise.

If you want to know once and for all, just read "burn the fat, feed the muscle".

It's the final word on getting your body to drop fat.

The rest is just noise.

Americans get 35% of their calories from Fat. 15% from protein. And 50% from Carbs. They are fat.


Japanese get 80% from Carbs. 10% from Protein and 10% from Fat. They are thin.



We eat the fewest Carbs as a percentage of total Calories out of any industrialized nation.


If low carb diets made you thin we would be thinnest on the planet.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 5616706


I can tell you are super smart by your use of big words, or f-words. LOL.

Anyways, Japan is thin for the most part because they still eat real food. Americans are fat because we no longer eat real food but processed crap.

Any country that turns to processed crap will become obese. Processed crap is made up of lots of carbs.

If you live in Japan, and you are eating real food, and you are thin, the rice will not affect you. I have seen plenty of Japanese teens snacking on crap, and they are fat.

If you are fat, and you want to lose weight the BEST way is to stop eating processed crap, and eat real food.

How many people gorge themselves on veggies and chicken??? No one. People binge on processed crap.

So yes, if you are eating real food on low carb and not allowing your insulin to spike, you will lose some serious weight. If you are eating real food and starving yourself on a diet you will also lose weight, but it will be harder.

Your brain actually needs a reasonable amount of healthy fats to thrive. On low fat diets people experience depression. They are not satisfied. If they eat processed diet food their blood sugar will spike then drop and they will feel fatigued and hungry.

And yes, if you stop eating real healthy food and go back to processed crap you will gain weight again.

But 90% of the food in the stores is processed crap. And I would say that if MOST people eat cereals, bagels and toast for breakfast--sandwiches, crackers and cookies at lunch, and pasta with garlic bread for dinner that practically 90% of the American diet is carbs (not to mention juice, starbucks, gatorade, soda, and RedBull/Monster drinks).

As a whole rice is not our problem, refined grains and sugar are. They have NO nutritional value and we should not eat them. If we stop eating them our health will improve along with our weight.

Have a great day : )

1. Asian people are going to get fatter b/c now fast food is coming over there like it has here. OP just give them a decade or so and they will be like fat Mexicans and Americans..

2. Losing weight, when your obese or morbidly obese, TRUMPS everything. Having the weight gone has far more health benefits then any pill or exercising...could ever do

3. There is two ways to eat if you have weight issues. All Carbs and ABSOLUTE minimum fats/proteins or ONLY proteins and fats.

Eating calories equal to your maintenance you can eat what you want as long as you know what your limit is based on a week of balancing calories in and out. And this is just not going to work with fast food and chips in the long run.

Fast food makes you lethargic b/c is full with crap. It tires you out and makes you eat more for no reason other then it must be addicting b/c there is no other reason..

Re: Low Carb diets always make you gain weight in the long run. Here is why.
I would like to postulate that you are a shill : )

Most people on GLP are smart enough not to buy the standard mainstream health garbage (i.e. the food pyramid).

Since no one has yet shown evidence to your false claim, I felt I might as well do it myself.

The TRUTH about Atkins death:

He did not die obese.

"William Leith, an writer who interviewed him around the time of his cardiac arrest stated that "he looks to be just under 6 feet tall and around 200 lbs – not skinny, not thin, but definitely not fat." A report from Atkins Nutritionals states that he played tennis competitively and that his weight was frequently checked, and in the years before his death was below 195, and six feet tall. And a medical report at the time of his admission to the hospital, which was later made public by his widow, states that he was 195 lbs on admission to the hospital.

On April 8, 2003, at age 72, Dr. Atkins slipped on the ice while walking to work, hitting his head and causing bleeding around his brain. He lost consciousness on the way to the hospital, where he spent two weeks in intensive care. His body deteriorated rapidly and he suffered massive organ failure. During this time, his body apparently retained an enormous amount of fluid, and his weight at death was recorded at 258 pounds. His death certificate states that the cause of death was "blunt impact injury of head with epidural hematoma".
Following this, a Nebraska doctor known to be anti-Atkins, and associated with the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, requested Dr. Atkins' medical records, which should not have been released, but which mistakenly were sent. The Medical Examiner's report had a hand-written note that Atkins had a history of myocardial infarction (heart attack), congestive heart failure, and hypertension (written "h/o MI, CHF, HTN"). The above Committee made much of this and began the rumor that Atkins had "died of his own diet". The misconceptions remain to this day.

The year following his death, his widow released a statement taking what she called "unscrupulous individuals" to task for spreading falsehoods about her husband.

Apparently, those individuals are still having a measure of success."

Without exercise, and eating small frequent meals your metabolism will adjust, and the weight loss will stop.

The human body is a master at defeating weight loss through diet alone, without exercise. It's called survival, and you body will try do it no matter how much your try to fool it with diet alone (i.e. it will store fat to survive).

Point being you're losing muscle mass continually as you age past 21, and that reality continually lowers your metabolic rate.

There is no such thing as sustained weight loss without exercise. Weight training in particular.

You body is in ketosis perpetually with a zero carb diet, and that is not healthy for you at all.

On top of that, your energy level will be terrible without carbs compared to a proper ratio diet.

People who "diet" for weight loss really have no idea what they are doing.

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.

When you cut out the wheat products you are cutting out the processed carbs which are so bad for you. You are eating fresh fruits and veggies (which are, technically carbs but healthy, low calorie, and high-fiber).

Eat the meat, milk products, fruits, and vegetables you want - just cut out that bad-for-you wheat!

The reality is a lot of people want easy diets when a more ideal plan is to work out and just eat right. Drink water, not soda. Eat fresh food, not processed food. Avoid red meat and cheese. I was fat up until my 20's when I started running every day and stopped buying frozen dinners.

You know what? I'm sorry but people on this forum are fucking blind.


Atkins the low carb pusher was obese when he died.

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.

I just wanted to say, doctor atkins was 195 before he went into the hospital,and died weighing 260 something.when people are in the hospital for serious injuries they usually tend to swell up and gain weight.he died from a head injury.facts are simple.i for one did the atkins diet some years ago and kept it off.i exercise daily,eat my fruits and veggies,and some meat.as long as people know how to control their appetites then everything should be good.now the carbs you spoke of from different countries,asians for one,they have different sources of protein,fiber,and dairy then america.fish,pork,peppers.america is rated number one obesity for a reason.people have no self control and junk food is cheaper than the healthy food in stores.if anything we should be blamimg the government and not carbohydrates.
