    Yes I think the cravings and hunger are the main reasons these low carb diets work for people. Helps alleviate those feelings and allow you to resist more.

    Exactly.

    All goes back to eating NATURAL foods. They promoted poison under the ruse of "fat is bad".

    No, it isn't. Obviously moderation.

    If you are going to eat it, use real butter, real fat, real oil. It isn't that hard to understand.

    The whole food industry and what is "good" for us was built on lies for profit from big companies

    There is no excuse for being overweight.

    I know, right?!

    And there's no excuse for alcoholism and smoking, as if you don't buy it you can't drink or smoke it. Stop buying it, duh! That's what has kept me from alcoholism and nicotine addiction.

    It just *might* be a little more complicated.

    I think people drop a lot of water quick, (look prunish to me ), and then declare what a fabulous weight loss regimen they are following.g
    A lb of fat Contains 4,500 calories. In order to actually lose 1lb of fat, you have to either mechanically remove it, or live in a calorie deficit until you are short 4,500 calories.
    You can get there in a dozen different ways, but essentially it's all energy in, energy out o
    We are really just working on how we feel And how we perform in a calorie deficit Of some duration
    In my case I need to lose 30 lb but I only calorie deficit 4,500 a week That's about 750 calories per day.
    That's a lot of cycling, so it's Better accomplished at the plate Or the drive through window.
    I am adding a link for clarity.

    Approx 3500 but I agree 100%. Weight loss is about calories in and calories out. Not about the specific food. The specific food is only a tool to get there. Overall health is another story and WHAT you eat impacts overall health for sure.

    It might be harder to hear the truth than to actually get off your a$$ and do it!

    I'll go all Pescidarian on you, and point out that the 3500/lb research has been revised upward to somewhere between 4100 and 4500 depending on molecular chain, fat type, and water content of a lb of body fat. Emerging technology making it even harder to lose weight.

    You're talking pure fat. People don't just lose pure fat.

    For anyone interested. Look up Dr. Shawn Baker or Dr. Paul Saldino for info on the carnivore diet.

    Ah, the orthopedic guy promoting a diet with no research into the effects of the diet. Same guy who lost his medical license due to concerns over competency.

    That’s probably the case for you. Believe it or not everyone is different. Just because something works for you doesn’t mean it works for me.

    I counted calories for years. It was a couple waste. It wasn’t until I realized carbs is what drives my weight gain that I could really control it. Now it’s not an issue. But I also realize that’s not the case for everyone.

    Eat 1200k cal per day including carbs and see what happens. If you are eating 4k, there is your problem. It isn't what you're eating it is how much of what... maybe you just don't know what your maintenance calories really are? The way to lose weight is calorie deficit. Period. It works for everyone.

    Maybe what doesn't work for you is calorie restriction while having carbs because you are eating too much when you have them?
