    you know what the best way to lose weight is? the one that works for you. I’m glad you found yours. I also missed any scientific references to your assertion that the low-carb diet is the WORST way to lose weight. If you do some research, you will see that for losing weight and keeping it off it seems that low-carb diets actually do work and work generally better than most alternatives. If you feel like testing your beliefs against facts, give Gary Taubes new book a read. I doubt you will and frankly, why bother? You lost your weight and so far, you have kept it off for one whole year.

    Now we can go back to all of the examples of why the low-carb diet is the WORST way to lose weight. Because anecdotal examples are what really matter.

    The low carb diet is unhealthy and not the best way to lose weight. People need carbohydrates to burn, to get energy and fiber from. As a diabetic Type 1 I could not do the Atkins diet or I’d die; but putting your body in a ketoacidosis state is not smart.

    Counting calories is the best way to lose, eat smarter.

    I knew a guy who did low-carb for a while. He lost weight fast but he said he felt horrible all the time. He said he has absolutely no energy, was irritable all the time and had a general feeling of being ill all the time. He also looked bad too; you could tell that whatever he was doing, it wasn’t healthy. He was the poster-child for why not to do low-carb diets.
