” ‘So-and-so’ lost a ton of weight. All he did was cut out his carbs and the fat just melted off!”
Low-carb diets have been the latest craze with fat-loss recently.
There are a ton of supposed benefits with low-carb: hunger-control, decreased appetite, management of certain illnesses, and of course, fat loss.
But is it all true? And is low-carb really the “golden calf” of fat loss?

So, while low-carb does have its benefits, it does have its down-sides, too. And ultimately, caloric-intake and “calories-in vs. calories-out” is what dictates whether or not you lose fat.
