When it comes to treating diabetes, obesity and epilepsy, low carb diets have been used for many years as a therapeutic tool.

Millions of people have been very successful with it.

In spite of all of this, nutritionists and other health experts do not recommend a low carb diet citing that it can be too dangerous and unhealthy in the long run.

Many claim the scientific evidence behind low carb diets is insufficient and refer to them as a ‘fad’ diet.

In this article, I will prove them wrong.

Ten years ago, there was not much scientific evidence behind the low-carbohydrate diet, however since 2003, there have been over 27 randomized, controlled, scientific human trials.

Randomized controlled trials are the gold standard in the public health and medical science community that prove safety, cause and effect.

In this article, I will review 27 trials that were published in the New England Journal of Medicine, American Journal of Clinical Nutrition and Nature (2003-2016)

Over the years, I have asked Nutritionists and other health experts who are against low-carb diets to prove they are ineffective or unsafe.  The fact is – such trials do not exist.

All of the randomized controlled trials compare the low-carb diet to the standard, calorie-restricted, low-fat diet that is often recommended by many health professionals.

While I like a low carb diet,we all remain unique and it doesn’t always work for everyone.

Most people who give it an honest try do quite well and lose weight without restricting calories or feeling hungry.

However, after a few weeks, some people reach a plateau.

The weight may have fallen off at the beginning, but now the scale won’t budge.

Have you tried a low carb diet for one day and ready to throw in the towel ? Do you feel totally deprived of your favorite foods ?

Many people can’t imagine a day without bread, whole grains or some kind of sugary confection.

While you need to limit many of these processed foods on a diet in order to lose weight, following a low carb diet, however, is not as hard as you might think.

Eating a low carb diet can actually work in your favor by reducing your appetite and automatically lowering your caloric intake.

If you are attempting to lose weight by simply cutting back on calories, but still eating the same foods, your brain will respond by triggering your ‘hunger’ button, making you feel miserable and frustrated.

Studies show that when you compare low fat diet to low carb diets, calories are restricted in the low-fat group, while those eating low carbohydrate foods, they can eat as much as they want to.
