Originally Answered: Some Low-Carb Questions?
I too like the low-carb diet, however its one of those diets that works best when you do it for about 3 or 4 months, and then you alternate with another diet. When I did a low carb diet, for the first two weeks I had little to NO carbs. If you do this, you can expect a 10-15 pound weight loss, it also prepares your body for the diet. After the two weeks, I ate under 30 carbs a day. I followed the Atkins plan, and if you go on the website you can send away for an atkins package that gives you a booklet, a book of foods with a list how many carbs are in what foods, and these chocolate carb free snack bars. Also this book:
Lists the carbs, fat, calories and other stuff in meals from literally EVERY resturaunt, which makes it perfect for the low carb diet.
Also, I lost like 40 pounds in 4 months. After four months I alternated to low calories, because I read that your body tends to slow down on a diet after a while.
