Having too high of a protein diet can make your metabolism go haywire, and metabolism is good for weight loss. Carbs though, can actually be good. There are complex carbs (I think, remembered reading it somewhere) that you can obtain from fiber and fiber keeps you regular and can help with weight management. Now about the protein list, you could have meat, eggs, and tofu. Now the carbs, I'm not too sure because I've only attempted low calorie diets rather than low carb.

The point of the low carb diet is that after a week your body goes into a state of ketosis, which means instead of running off of carbs as a primary energy source your body switches to fat. So you pretty much are forced to restart, unless you plan on eating only fat which is kinda gross. These low carb diets alone will not loose weight for you. It is all about calories in vs. calories out. Just because you cut carbs out of your diet does not mean you can sit and eat all day. You can gain weight eating anything if you eat enough of it. So you need to count calories regardless of what diet you are using. As for what diet to use - pick whichever one you feel more comfortable doing. Either will work as long as you are eating less calories than you are burning off. Good luck

That's funny, I JUST saw a report on the news half an hour ago that talked about a massive study to find the best diet for losing weight and keeping it off, and it was a high-protein low-carb diet that came out on top.

Why is it so hard to lose weight and keep it off? We have all heard that weight loss is just a matter of taking in less calories than we expend. That certainly sounds very logical, but is it really that simple?

Nope. Its about calories. Sadly, the information is misconstrued in that article and on the news. If you go over your metabolic rate for calories (whether it is protein, fat, carbs) you will gain weight. PERIOD!!!

researchers found that dieters who ate eggs in the morning were less hungry than those who ate carb heavy meals

you may be used to fried foods but there are other sometimes healthier ways to cook including roasting steaming poaching baking braising and broiling

Yeah, there are some types of diets which try and fool the body by adjusting the calories up or down (around the normal required daily calorie intake), they called this "zig-zagging" and helps avoid or get past plateaus in weight loss diets. Of course to do this you need to have pre-determined your daily/weekly calories needs based on current body weight, target body weight and current activity levels. The calorie calculation is done via the BMR method (google Basal Metabolic Rate). Low carb, high-protein is good for weight loss as long as physical activity is kept low to moderate, otherwise you could run into trouble with fatigue, as your blood sugar levels will drop due to low carbs. Binging on carbs one day a week - well I dont know how many calories that would be, it depends on the type of carbs, but if your calorie surplus for that day was greater than the total calorie reduction for the previous 6 days....well, you see where I am coming from don't you? Also, a massive carbs binge will do all sorts of strange things to blood sugar and insulin levels, especially after the body has been carbs starved for the previous 6 days. Personally, I started off on a similar diet to get back to my normal weight (13.5 st) which I am still on, though I had to up my carbs as I was running of out energy in the gym. I eat carbs with a low Glycaemic Index (GI) - they release their energy at a slower rate than sugary or starchy carbs and therefore keep you fuller for longer, rather than a short, intense sugar spike. Low GI foods - wholemeal pasta, brown rice, oats, green veggies, sweet potatoes, pulses etc. Occasionally, I 'binge' on carbs in the week (not every week, only as and when my body tells me that I need to) as I am trying to balance my weight loss needs against my nutritional needs for training at the gym 4 times a week (usually hard sessions with a mix of cardio, free weights and martial arts). These extra calories gained are an insurance policy during times of intense exercise - better to have a bit more fuel in the tank than consistently running on empty, as over-training and chronic fatigue syndrome are dark places for a fitness enthusiast/athlete, which can take literally months or even years to fully recover from. A "carbs binge" for me would be one of the following - two extra bowls of crunchy oat cereal, - two or three, small, wholemeal pitta breads - snacking my way through 200-300g dried dates (high carbs, from natural sugars though) - or if im really naughty, 2 or 3 flapjacks. (saturated fats - bad, oats - good) However, I am always conscious of this binge and try to regain some lost ground later on the week (though not all, as this would defeat any required carbs gains). If you are serious about losing weight, I would selectively choose your carbs beforehand and avoid binging on sugary, processed foods, chocolate, ice-cream, white breads, pastry-related products etc - yeah I know it sucks, cos all the yummy foods fall into this group. That's the price we have to pay for results In short, you will lose weight with a low-carb, high protein diet, but after some time you would run out of energy, when your calorie intake dips below the minimum threshold for your needs, then your body will go into starvation mode and whatever you eat will be converted straight to fat and perversely, you will stop losing weight and may even put back on what you lost the previous week. Other signs that your metabolism has effectively 'switched off' is the feeling of being cold all the time, beyond what is normal for you at this time of year. Hmm, I appear to have rambled, however I feel there are some pearls in there somewhere and good luck! : )
