Low carb is nothing but a scam and the truth is if you are lossing weight its not because of ketosis its really avoiding junk food and soft drinks thats doing the trick. Low carb is nothing more than a sugar deprivation diet that only limits meat, cheese, milk, unsweaten tea, as your only source of food. The whole trick is in this diet is to convince the dieter thats its the carbs thats determines everthing and you have to keep the carbs under 20 to 40 grams a day. But the truth is if anybody can avoid fast food, chips, twinkes, sodas, candy bars, and get reasonable exercise you can keep your weight in a decent range. Don't believe me the next time you check out the carbs on the back of a food product it will be almost equilavent to the sugar content. So if this diet isn't working so far for you don't give up keep it up im not saying its a bad diet but a miss representation.
