I am very sensitive to carbs so I've found that low carb is what works best for me.
I've done Weight Watchers with success but it was not something I could maintain, it was like my body became immune to the low calorie eating.

Is anyone else planning to follow a low carb lifestyle?

Me!! Right now i'm doing Primal Blue Print, and I love it. It's easy for me to maintain, and i'm having success w/it. My energy levels are thru the roof. I'm cycling how many carbs I have though. Some weeks i'll do 25, and some weeks i'll go up to 100, but never more than that. I tend to stay more towards 50 though. Plus all of my carbs come from veggies/fruit. I don't eat any type of grains.

IDK yet, but my mom is ALL about carbs and she sent from being 250 pounds when we were growing up to 115. so I believe it in completely.

You don't have to ask, yes we know what causes it, and since you're asking and dont, google might be a nice place to start.

low carb diets generally aren't very effective unless you combine it with aerobic activity/exercise. Low carb diets lower your metabolism. you need to balance it out with exercise in order to keep your metabolism high or stable. Then if you decide to resume previous carb intake, you will not gain it all back, but instead will be stable. but always everything in moderation.

I'm not trying to start a debate, but I don't agree with this at all. Low carb diets are effective whether you exercise or not just like any other plan. Weightloss is 80% food & 20% exercise. Of course you should exercise daily, and yes it makes you lose weight faster. I haven't seen any valid research that says it slows down metabolism, and from my experience & the experience of other low carb'ers that I know this is quite the opposite. As far as adding carbs back in goes, you will never be able to eat as many carbs as the normal American does. Most of your carb sources will come from fruits, veggies, and nuts which is more healthy than receiving carbs from refined foods like wheat bread, cereal, etc. If anyone is going to do a low carb diet they need to realize that it's a lifestyle change not just a temporary way to lose weight. You need to up your amount of carbs slowly until you reach your maintenance number, and that number is going to be different for everyone. My husband has been doing low carb for ten years and eats about 100g carbs a day which only come from the 3 sources that I listed above, and he gets more veggies & fruit a day than most people I know. So if you are going to change your lifestyle & eating habits to low carb research it, and do it right.

Are you or have you been following a low carb lifestyle? Any type of diet, whether it be low cal or low carb should be combined with exercise.
