WIDE SPREAD FEAR OF CARBS
Low carb high fat diets have been around since 1960’s but only people that like fatty foods and don’t like to drink alcohol and/or are not into sweet and starchy food can do well on it long term.
Jumping on a low carb diet wagon just because it’s popular and there is lot of buzz around it can be a huge waste of time, and restricting an an entire food group can backfire long term.
Effectiveness of a diet depends on wether you like the food you eat and can stick to it long term.
If you can’t make it a lifestyle don’t bother.
Get educated about different types of carbs and best ways, times and volumes to eat them. Spend time considering which diet will suit your preferences , unique life style and health challenges.
