There is no common consensus as to why a low-carb eating plan can help with weight loss. Here is a quick-and-dirty summary for why some claim that low-carb eating can help you shed pounds: 1. Carbohydrates trigger insulin to enhance your body’s fat-storing ability. The most recent studies show low carb to be at least as effective as — and often superior to — low-fat and calorie-restricted diets for losing weight. What’s more, they nearly always lead to lower blood sugar, lower blood pressure, and other health improvements, regardless of what happens weight-wise. You don’t have to completely shun sweet potatoes, beans or whole-wheat pasta (which can all be healthy foods for weight loss).Yes, they do have more carbohydrates compared to non-starchy sources.

A cup (150g) of black beans, for example, has 23.1 grams of net carbs, an amount that may meet your entire carb limit on a keto diet (which typically targets 20–50. The main reason people follow a low carb diet is because they believe it will help them lose weight. Because there is no one-size-fits-all approach to weight loss, deciding whether a low carb diet is right for you depends on the context. Once I decided I was serious about losing the weight, I started doing research on eating plans like keto, the carnivore diet, and low-carb diets. I.

While on the low-carb diet, they ate about 2,100 calories, even though they were told to eat as much of the permitted foods as they wanted. The participants lost an average of 3.6 pounds while on. So, talking in terms of weight loss, the release of insulin post a meal high in carbs signals a shutdown of the body’s fat burning and the glucose from the carbs is used for energy. It is this mechanism that adds fire to the low-carb debate, However, there is one hitch.

If you want to lose weight fast, a low carb diet might be right for you. For many people, cutting carbs results in fewer hunger pangs, more energy, and a slimmer figure. Could it work for you, too?

Low carb dieting isn’t a magic bullet, and it isn’t right for everyone. Because of this, the researchers believed it would make some participants more likely to lose weight on a low-fat or low-carb diet. Therefore, participants were broken up into a low-carb and. The science is clear and so is the way forward: low carb can be a safe and effective way to lose weight.

And here, at Diet Doctor, you’ll have plenty of company along the way.

The reason why so many low-carb dieters lose weight fast is because the lack of carbohydrates causes them to lose glycogen stores from their muscles, and with this loss of glycogen comes a loss of a lot of water; as soon as they reinstate the carbs, the glycogen comes back to the muscles and attracts the water.

Foods that are high in fiber tend to be more filling and may help to reduce caloric intake and contribute to weight loss.32 If dieters who severely restrict carbohydrates lose large amounts of weight shortly after starting the diet, the majority of this weight loss comes from loss of water.

Diets that rely on unrefined carbohydrates are high in fiber and aid weight loss because they increase the sense of fullness by adding bulk and slowing digestion, allowing you to feel satisfied with less food.28 Weight loss is caused by a reduction in energy intake relative to expenditure.

On the other hand, diets containing low levels of carbohydrates promote ketosis, which is the process whereby some of your fat cells are burned for energy causing you to lose weight.

For me, keto isn’t just about restricting your diet and losing weight; it’s about turning your body into an optimally functioning machine so that you feel satiated, love what you’re eating, lose weight, and gain all kinds of energy and mental clarity.

  • Fruits, whole grains, oats are NOT as good for you as people think. Keto is not restrictive and combining it was IF has so many other health benefits besides just weight loss!

  • Yeah but low carb I a lot healthier because it doesn’t spike insulin and you get a lot mor vitamins from 1 cup of broccoli than 1 cup of potatoes

  • It’s not about how much weight one loses during dieting, it’s about if they can keep their weight afterwards and about how difficult it is to go through with it in the first place. Low carb (not keto) is a clear winner here it’s the easiest way to lose weight. You eat healthily, you eat less, but you’re not hungry, there are no food cravings or only very mild ones that you can deal with. Low fat is a constant fight and people are way more likely to quit. And if you follow the logic behind it, it’s not much of a surprise either.

  • For vegans watching this and wondering if you can combine it with a keto diet, the answer is YES. We can still maintain an alkaline diet full of antioxidants and anti-inflammatory foods such as:

    tempeh (1 cup = 31g protein)

    miso (1 cup = 32g protein)

    roasted soybeans (1 cup = 60g protein)

    veggie burgers/patties (recommend The Beyond Burger 21g, The Alpha Burger 20g, Dr. Prager’s beet burger 19g, chicken patties/strips, turkey patties, fish-fillet, meatballs, crab-cakes etc)

    mushrooms based meats (whole, mock burgers, mock steaks, mock ground beef, mock fajitas)

    vegenaise (soy-free vegenaise if allergic)

    avocados (whole, oil)

    olives (whole, oil)

    coconuts (whole, oil)

    ground flaxseeds (whole, oil)

    alternatives milks (soy, hemp, almond, cashew, coconut, hazelnut) no rice or multigrain.

    nutbutters/cheeses (cocoa, peanut, shea butter no jam)

    Nutritional yeast

    chickpeas (including humus)

    all leafy greens





    seaweeds (kelp, dulse, nori)




    high water content fruits (cantaloupe, watermelon, citrus, berries, peppers, tomatoes etc)

    herbs and spices

    and more…

    … with tons of vegan keto recipes online. Enjoy!����

  • The hospital breakfast replacement now has an egg (good) and 2 slices of toast. Why not get rid of the toast and replace it with an avocado. Why only cut half the sugar, cut all of it.

  • For me, not being able to eat fruit ( esp apples and tropical fruits such as bananas, mangoes, pineapples ) is the hardest part on low carb diet!!

  • Idk what to think. I only have lost 15lbs. LDL gone up to 375 and HDL up to 75, triglycerides 120. Been on diet for 5 months. Currently, Weight starts up and down between three lbs on weekly basis. Not really losing weights… I wonder if the LDLs will get flash out or I have a condition that my body cannot get rid of LDLs…

  • I have two “twin” theories about all of this that is trying to remain neutral on macro nutrient profiles. The scientists have vacillated back and forth over my own life time. The average lay person, such as myself, have tried to glean what works for my lifestyle. This investment in one’s own health cannot be substituted or overlooked. Accordingly, it doesn’t always seem to be advantageous for the food or medical industry when people take matters into their own hands.

    1. Some people are forced to epiphanies for no other reason than trying to make a living or making due with the paycheck they earn. For example, a truck driver’s lifestyle is less conducive to a healthy lifestyle than an elite athlete. In either case, neither person knows what their diet will do over the long term. It is still a safe conclusion the athlete has many more resources to stave off disease, if any, derived from diet. The athlete has a distinct advantage given athletic performance is an extreme privilege usually associated with a higher success rate for health and longevity. The truck driver has a different challenge that must be assessed on an individual basis: NOT a one size fits all approach.

    2. Diet should also include other factors that create an overall picture of health. Exercise, metabolism, sleep, stress along with other things work hand in hand with diet. This should also include food sources, as this video covers, that further contribute to one’s health. The less processed a food the more it will retain vitamins, minerals, fiber and other beneficial nutritional factors. Again, let’s not side step the underlying theory: I believe people need to find what works for them, their lifestyle and their body. This challenge is more like chess than checkers.

  • It’s high time for us to stop wasting funding on research comparing different diets to see which is superior. Instead, we should focus more on researching the ways someone can maintain a caloric deficit for weight loss and later, neutral energy balance for weight maintenance while maintaining satiety and satiation to enhance adherence to the diet in the long haul.

    One can only hope and wait…

  • Hang on there’s a big problem here. How do you know that the participants ate similar amounts of calories? If the type of food is different, the calories must be identical, so as to compare apples to apples. Fail!

  • I dont know what kinde of bread you are eating but here in Slovenia, we put cca. 1 table spoon on 750g of bread. So in our slices isnt 3tbs of it 😉

  • Cooking is a ‘process’. So everything you cook, is also a processed food. Anything which undergoes pasteurization, is ALSO a ‘processed food’. Homogenized milk is also a processed food. Waiting for that milk to separate into skim milk and cream? A process which changes the natural state of the food. In fact, even washing your veggies is ‘processing’. Cereals are ALL processed foods. So are all breads. By the time you eliminate all the ‘processed foods’, there’s not much left to eat.

  • This isn’t comparing a high fat keto to a high carb diet. Keto diet has a 5% carb only, not 30%. Taking out that extra 25% of carb makes huge differences in the body. It triggers ketosis. Ketone bodies, which are essential for utilizing body fats for energy. And it’s also great for psychological reasons. Scientists even think it may be the answer to Alzheimers. Ketone bodies are also affective in preventing epilepsy. And are a key factor for brain development in new born, because babies are always in ketosis.

  • I tried low to no carb before because I was misdiagnosed as prediabetic and it scared me. I did great the first 3 weeks however on my 4th week I almost had a mental breakdown because I was craving sugar so bad. Needless to say I fell off. I’m going to start again because I avoid stairs at all cost and if I do have to use them I’m slow as a toddler �� Tfs��

  • The study itself seems poorly designed, at least to how it was summarized in this video. A year is too little of a time frame for a nutritional study given we have storages of nutrients that will compensate for the sudden change in diet until our body adjusts to the new change.

    Were the test subjects knowledgable of what is classified as carbohydrates and fats, did they receive any nutrition education? Since vegetables are carbs, a high carb diet is one with lots of vegetables and fruits (which we obviously want for their micro and macronutrients). What was their perception of a carbohydrate? A lot of people (even health professionals) still villainize fats and carbohydrates and don’t bother being specific on what they mean. Some doctors tell their obese patients “stop eating carbohydrates and fat” and move on to the next patient.

    The diet that you can stick to sounds like an excuse for lazy behaviorif one cares for their health there should be a will and effort to improve their diet and seek professional help from people who know what they are talking about.

    Diets can be tailored to certain people because “diet” isn’t just what you hear and see on the media. If your blood pressure, blood glucose, or serum cholesterol are high well there is a diet for you that can assuage and manage those values. If you have kidney failure, liver failure, kidney stones, fatty liver disease, etc well there are diet recommendations to help your condition from worsening.

    Treating nutrition as a pseudoscience is dangerous. There are chemicals in foods, those chemicals react with your body, the excess or insufficient of some chemicals can harm or hurt you and they interact with other chemicals which ultimately affect the quality of biological systems. That’s nutrition right there.
    *Also what where the socioeconomic backgrounds of the people that were studied? Obesity and nutrition quality is greatly linked with socioeconomic status.

  • I am currently on a diet too. I already lost about 20 lbs over the past couple months (2 and a half?) and I’m feelng awesome. I noticed one important thing: I have to east a little of EVERYTHING. If I eat too much meat or fat (I’m taling the healthy kind), I feel like crap too. if I eat a little bit of HQ bread, I feel awesome for long and I have no “cravings” it’s unrelated. Recommending to go extreme to either side is brainwashing. (same with politics, art, religion and virtually any other aspect of human life). Listen to your body, observe how it feels after certain foods, and learn from it. Look at your mood, energy levels and skin/complexion. Mine are all just fine, and so much better. Perhaps for some high protein&fat will be fine, for me it’d be a torture.

  • Only NO carb worked for me. 10 yrs trying low carb and lost nothing. Lost 20 lb in 2 months on no carb KETO. Not hungry most of the time went from 3 to 2 to 1 meal a day.

  • Having tried both, and lost weight on both, I feel a low fat is superior because it allows more food choices. I was literally dreaming about beans and bread on the low carb diet. On a low fat, I eat lean meat, veggies, my own sourdough bread, noodles, rice, oatmeal, fruits, potatoes, sauces, a little cheese, and a small amount of olive oil. I don’t have any cravings, and my food bill is cheaper.

  • I’m so tired of people like you. keto and low carb diets were not developed for weight loss! Weight loss is a side effect of low carb diets! As with all side effects this varies according to several factors such as genetics and compliance to the regimen. I lost about sixty pounds with low carb and know someone who lost about 100. Notice how the results differ depending on the person. Also, how do you go about measuring the effectiveness of any diet when most people follow a diet for about two weeks and then go back to eating junk food? Doesn’t that sound stupid to you? People are the problem, not the diet. People have self control issues. They try things for a few days and because our evolutionary urges make us obsessed with satisfaction we have trouble complying with any regimen that restricts our ability to fulfill those urges. That’s science, not speculation like this stupid video encourages. Low carb diets were developed for therapeutic reasons! They help treat and in some cases cure neurodegenerative disorders such as Parkinson’s, epilepsy, Alzheimer’s, and dementia among other ailments. Acting as if it is a weight loss fad is childish and ignorant.

  • A recent study that measured not only weight but body composition shows that rate of fat burning is higher in low fat, and a lot of the weight loss in low carb comes from water weight and emptying of the muscular glycogen stores https://youtu.be/oePve0-8W0I

  • Why punish yourself with a low carb diet. Frankly I think a keto or low carb diet is bullshit. Just eat everything in moderation and you will be fine. Work out your macros (which includes how many calories carbs, fat and protein) and just stick to that. It’s all about calorie deficit and that’s it. Whoever does keto is frankly a wanker.

  • Thanks so much for this video. I’m on keto and I’ve lost 70lb in the past 4 months and I got a blood test which I found quite scary due to my doctor’s reaction to it. She wanted to put me on statins immediately. I wasn’t sure, but my instinct was that my weight loss might be the cause of my very high LDL result. Since then I’ve been super anxious about this. This video has helped me to calm down and see my result as a normal part of the process particularly because my HDL and Triglycerides are perfect: a Tri/HDL ratio of 1.0.

  • These people are idiots. They remove one major food group, carbs, and they lose weight, but they fail to realize they lost weight because of the cut in calories, not because they removed carbs. Now, I defy anybody to run a fast mile without eating carbs.

  • Low fat diets, specifically keto, have higher weight stability post-diet. They don’t just gain back the weight afterwards because the hormonal pathways affected see more permanent change (ghrelin, leptin).

  • This is interesting. Though, I remember WHO stating that red mean and processed meat are carcinogenic. I wish all of the experts agreed. It makes it difficult for the rest of us.

  • i think that “high-fat” is the wrong name. It should be called “low carb”. As in “low carb” vs “high carb”. Because a true “high fat” is ketogenic. Everything else is low/medium/high-carb

  • This should be titled “Low-Carb and Low Fat Diets Get Similar Results,” but we use inflammatory sassy language to clickbait negativity.

  • I love how Healthcare Triage kinda is just like “listen punk this stuff you thought before, is garbage, now sit down shut up and I am going to tell you what actually is what” And the moment you are “but what about…” he is all like “listen shit head, that didn’t make a difference either” haha

  • low fat diet group in the study:
    29% fat calories+48% carb calories
    low carb diet group in the study:
    30% carb calories+45% fat calories
    Now anybody knows the study is meaningless because neither of the diets is either low fat or low carb in the common sense. They are both pretty much SAD diet.

  • Hi, I’ve watched several of your videos now and really enjoy the content and relaxed easy to digest manner of them, I am enjoying the Keto low carb diet and have been very pleased with the results. I would love your take on a video that appeared on my screen directly above yours, it’s by nutritionalfacts.org and appears to totally discredit the low carb diet completely.

  • can you do a video on herbal tea vs water I say tea is more healthy cuz you cat more benefit than just water alone and can tea replace water

  • It sounds to me like they didn’t lose meaningfully different amounts of weight because they weren’t given meaningfully different diets. The high-fat dieters were not doing strict keto macros and the low-fat dieters were being told to avoid refined carbohydrates and added sugars which are a staple of low-fat “diet” foods. What they did was give two groups the same hybrid diet and get the same result. Congratulations?

  • People in every day life DONT usually meet their nutritional requirement LADY IN BLACK.

    Thats why 80% of the developed world have deficiencies.

    And the reason Doctors or people like her are so keen to just put people on a tablet. One that makes them “feel” better but not quite enough that they dont need to rely on the tablet.

  • Ha, they likely ate fewer calories because they were cooking all their own meals and didn’t want to spend more time cooking way more than they could reasonably eat.

  • I had watched how carbohydrate food were linked with weight gain and generally to abstain from carbohydrate, at the same time had under no circumstances thought as using them to lose weight. The number one idea behind the 4 cycle weight-loss strategy is for you to train your whole body to get rid of fat for energy rather than carbohydrates. It’s built around scientific inquiry into the higher than average carb diets of the Japanese combined with their incredible long-life expectancy. The findings would suggest that it’s their higher carb-cycling eating habits means which helps to continue being healthy and balanced into old age with a low body mass index (reduced incidence of excess weight).Read even more here https://truehealthreport.com/4-cycle-fat-loss-fat-burning-diet/

  • Blaming on foods people get fat because they set in the couch don’t do excersice I eat anything carbs rice pasta potatoes I work out weights 4x a week I’m turning 60 don’t take any meds

  • Keto comes from the word ketosis, which literally means starvation. Yes all your bad numbers related to eating excess food will go down when you’re eating less food. Keto is not really low carb as much as it is starvation and deprivation

  • I am sorry, I am going to ignore your inclusion of sweet potatoes, which I will continue to enjoy, in moderation of course. Same with Taro. These are fantastic food with many nutrients and fibers, everybody should eat them!

  • Wondering how much grain lobbying and saturated commercializing perpetuated the consumption of high carb diets..funny how it took us so long to wake up and realize what we knew ages ago.

  • The key to weight loss is to find a diet that gets you into a negative energy balance and that you can stick with for the rest of your life.

  • Not sure if this was asked so many comments and replies. Did the low-fat dieters also reduce their carbohydrates based on staying away from processed foods and added sugar? Thanks. Good podcasts.

  • Thank you this is what happen to me lost 26 lbs. and my doctor put me on a statin to lower my cholesterol he said it was to high and my husband made me stop the keto now I have gained all the weight back. I am going back on Keto at this weight I am very unhealthy

  • LOVE this video. I would have really liked to have seen a general sustained fitness test performed before and at the end of the study. I wanted to see how this affected overall energy production and expenditure, how satiated each percipient felt on an objective scale ect… It would have been a good indicator of which diet produces the more “efficient” energy expenditure. Which substrate (Fat, or Carbs) metabolizes better over the long term.

  • If they cut calories on average 500 a day. Shouldn’t they have averaged 50lbs of weight loss over a year. Calories aren’t what the body processes. It’s FOOD.

  • I wonder if there would be a combined benefit of a low carb combined with a low fat diet. Or would a diet like that not be very sustainable?

  • I stay losing and gaining! Ugggg….I have a gym membership that I pay for every month and don’t even use it! I feel sluggish/slower with this extra weight on me. I need to loose 40 pounds. Thin wouldn’t look good on me. I just want to be a little lighter and be able to put to my clothes on without a struggle. That struggle can be real at times.

  • The ads I got on this video were for an extreme paleo lifestyle (more than just a diet) and a magic wand that cures Lyme disease, Google really preys on people who want health advice

  • Less refined food and less calorically dense food helps you lose weight. That’s all there is to it. The way you choose to do that depends on what you like and what works for you.

  • These studies never seem to track what’s really important: Did either group show a statistically significant difference in how insufferably self-righteous they were?

  • I needed this information today. I didn’t know I needed it, so I didn’t go looking for it. However, after getting this information I realize how valuable and timely it is for me. I’m glad I subscribe. I’m writing this simply because I think that, by now, the HT staff isn’t doing these videos for profit. The only other thing of value you are looking to reap may very well be the confirmation I just wrote up.

    Thank You.

  • Six years later in 2020: Thank the sugar industry for the fat myth. Sugar and complex sugars (carbs) is the blaggard. How many lives did/does the sugar industry destroy?

  • So I won’t read a single comment that will say Carbs aren’t that bad for healthy people…all the vegetarian doctors completely wrong then?

  • Eat whatever the heck you want without concern for calories (in some moderation 2-3 meals a day) Maccaroni & Cheese? sure, a thick Pizza? no problem. a Lasagne that was probably meant for two? go for it. as long as you exercise 2-3 times per week with a good prolonged regime (every 48 hours for example) you’ll be fine. my own experience with the matter of weight loss is that it comes down to metabolism; and how your body burns energy overall. the worst is when people think starving themselves is a good idea… your body is just going to try and retain fat and slow your metabolism, it might sound oxymoronic, but to lose weight you’ve got to eat a healthy amount, and then counter it efficiently. it’s just my thought on the matter though not seeking to prove anything here but it worked for me.

    imo the surge in obesity today is due to sugar laden foods & inactivity.

  • i strongly recommend proven
    ive seen the difference and got tired of this crazy diets and workout..it may work for you as well..check out more infos as well about it….and you dont have to stop eating what you like.

  • Of course the macros are not important. When people hear low carb, they eat meat. When they hear low carb, they don’t know what that means. If you want to survive: high fruit and vegetables intake, low saturated fat… Which means low meat.

  • Im sick and tired of these morons……. I DONT WANT TO LOSE WEIGHT!! NOBODY DOES. WE WANT TO BURN FAT…. THe most important part about burned fat is gonne!!! Who cares IF I lose 12 pounds of muscle…. thats failure NOT archievement. 99% of these studies are useless cause they measure weight loss. NOBODY WANTS WEIGHT LOSS! WE WANT FAT LOSS!!!! Why low carb makes more weightloss than low fat??? Cause carbs hold water…. so its more water loss. ALL THE STUDIES ARE USELESS. This does show uselesness of nerds doing practicals studies actually.

  • A link to the study in the description would have been nice.

    From this video (and comments) I understand this:
    1. Sugar and flours (in bread, basta, tortillas and others) probably makes you hungrier, as people consumed less calories without counting calories.
    2. The low carb diet was not ketogenic, which requires an intake of 15% of carbs. However it was relatively and fairly low carb (compared with the standard american diet).
    3. A gradual adaptation period is extremely important.
    4. There was a lot of fiber in both diets (from veggies).
    5. Fruit consumption was not recommended in any diet, so it seems to me that both diets could have been low fructose diets.
