A List of 27 Reviewed Studies on Low-Fat Low-Sugar Diet Plans
It’s nothing new that some dietitians and nutritionists refuse to believe that Low Carb and Low Fat Diets are safe and healthy.
The problem is? They’re wrong and in this article, I’ll prove them wrong!
It used to be that there just wasn’t much evidence for a low-carb diet but since 2003, there has been over 27 randomized, controlled, scientific human trials.

Are you faithfully follow your diet but just not losing any weight?

Or maybe you lost a little at first and then plateaued?

I’ll help you understand why you might not be losing weight but more importantly, you’ll come to fully understand this critically important key to your continued success:
Weight loss is a process.
Here’s even more encouragement: when you’re down in the dumps because you keep weighing yourself and not seeing any progress on the scale, you might actually be losing something more important than weight and you just don’t realize it yet.
But you will!
I’ll teach you here to be realistic and when your mind is in the right place, I’ll have some simple tips to help you blast right through that plateau you think you’re in.
Can I Really Stick to a Low-Carb Diet Plan?
Come find out why the vast majority fail at this.
It’s incredibly simple when you understand what’s required to succeed.
One simple truth is this: the very best diet and nutrition plan is the one that works for you; not everyone else.
Feeling hungry is frustrating and your willpower does not stand a chance against hunger.
Eating a low carb diet can actually work in your favor by reducing your appetite and automatically lowering your caloric intake.
Come look at the simple scientific data and let’s find out if it’s possible to stick to the diet for good.
I think you’ll be happy and excited with that you learn!
How Many Grams of Sugar Per Day?
First of all, there are different kinds of sugar.
Here we’ll be talking about “regular sugar.”
Table sugar, sucrose, high fructose corn syrup or whatever.
Can you believe that in the year 2000, sugar consumption had increased to the point where the average American ate 152 lbs of sugar?
It’s the classic dieter’s downfall!
I wonder what it is now?
Come find out what all the experts recommend for daily sugar intake, then I’ll give you my own recommendation.
It might not be what you want to hear if you’re a sugar addict (the subject of my next piece) but it’s the truth nonetheless!

Do you think maybe it had something to do with their diet and exercise?
Proponents of the paleo diet recommend eating the same foods our Paleolithic ancestors were likely to eat, which includes meat, fish, eggs, nuts, seeds, fruits and vegetables.
Personally, I recommend a more balanced approach.
One that you can stick to while getting you quick, sustainable results.
The good news is that it’s possible to eat an endless variety of meals on the paleo diet. It just takes a little imagination and experimentation!
Are Eggs Good or Bad For You?
There’s no getting around it.
Eggs are high in cholesterol and saturated fat.
That must mean they’re bad for your health, right?
This has been rigorously tested and once again, the findings will astonish you.
For instance, scientists have not found any association between eggs and cardiovascular disease.
And the research goes on to show that saturated fat isn’t associated with heart disease in any way!
I’ll go so far as to say that if I could only pick three foods to eat for the rest of my life, eggs would be one of them.
Come find out why!

The Saturated Fat Myth
Or should I say The Saturated Fat Myth Debunked?
For the last 70 years, the self-proclaimed “health experts” have warned us of the evils of saturated fat.
They warn that it’ll skyrocket our cholesterol levels.
And give us heart attacks.
But the evidence suggests that it’s not quite so black-and-white.
In this article, I will share just the top 10 reasons (that dietitians choose to ignore) why you shouldn’t fear saturated fat.
I’ll actually show you how the science makes a clear case for making saturated fat an integral part of your healthy and balanced diet.
