The gist of recent research seems to be that a diet is a diet is a diet, whether low carb or low cal.
My take has long been that if you like low carb—if you find it a pleasant way of eating, feel good on it, and lose the weight you want—then by all means, great. I’ve written several posts explaining that my experience on such diets has consistently been the opposite. I find them tremendously unpleasant, feel physically bad while adhering to them, and to top it all off I don’t even lose weight.
Different strokes for different folks.
