Years ago I tried ketogenic dieting & got really ill in just a few days. Several years ago I tried it again & lost some weight but then stalled. I was bored with salads & meat or chicken, and missed all the other tasty vegetables. A coworker did well long term but it wasn't right for me. I am on Rx for prediabetes & insulin resistant yet being a fast digester w/ type O negative blood I must have a balance of red meats & starchy root vegetables. I am very intune w/ my body & recently found myself doing IF which for now seems more doable. I have slowly lost 30+ lbs which for an inactive senior is good. My body is adjusting; thyroid med dosage decreased; blood pressure normal & cholesterol total of 78. A balanced approach is working for my diet & I don't want to be bothered trying to track net carbs when calorie counts are working. Report
Iā€™m on low carb now only for a short time. I feel better. And Iā€™m eating much less calories because Iā€™m not as hungry! Yay. Also I am very active and hopefully I will shrink a size or two finally. Report
I like the guidelines, and the explanations. Always great info. Here we are going to s more plant based lifestyle šŸ˜ŠšŸ‘ Report
Each one of us has to find what works for us. I think what works for me may not work for someone else. Report
Thank you! Report
Outdated info! Report
I try for a low carb being a diabetic. Some good info in the article but again follows the SAD which is not a good diet to follow. Report
thank you Report
This article is full of misinformation. I would suggest you read the works of Stephen Phinney, Jeff Volek and Peter Attia. Especially for a lot of older Americans, low carb is an excellent way of life to keep healthy. I keep my carbs under 75g a day and I run up to 35 miles a week. Prior to low carb, I could run 6 hours a week and still gain weight eating less than 2000 calories a day. Insulin is a bully and Insulin resistance is real. I tried diets and tracking calories, but it did not work. Now I just keep an estimate of carbs I eat and I have lost 10 pounds in 2 months, a seemingly impossible feat until I went low carb. Report
I try very hard to limit my carb intake. Report
