Success With Low Carb Diets?

Curious how people have used this in the past. Most often low-carb diets are paired with diets high in animal protein.

This is a new article to show how low carb can fit well into a nutrient dense diet, with no need to add extra meat, which can increase health risk.

How To Do Low Carb Diet The Right Way

Low carb is not high protein. Most low carb diets still recommend about 30% or less of your diet being protein- which isn't 'high' protein. Low carb is usually a high fat diet.

The 'increased health risk' from eating animal protein is the result of combining high carb with high fat- as part of that insulin problem mentioned.

Bean and lentils raise sugar slowly?? Says who? PT have you ever bothered to test your blood sugar after food, or are you just repeating the same tripe that the people advocating the use of whole grains use to advocate a high carb diet?
Glucose monitors are cheap- have you ever considered doing your own experiment to actually see how your body reacts?
