Why you are Doomed to Fail if you Go on a Low Carb Diet

By: John Davenport
Despite the growing popularity of low carb diets, the dismal statistics remains: 95% of all people who go on diets fail. And why is that so? Why do low carb diets fail in high numbers?

Low carb diets became popular because they promised a fast fat loss. And they did deliver on that promise, but what the marketers of low carb diets didn't tell the public was that this weight loss will be short termed only.

The reason why any weight loss from low carb diets will be short termed is that low carb diets is just a fancy name for Starvation Diets. Of course you lose weight if you eat a small amount of carbs. That's because you're naturally cutting down on the amount of calories you eat and so you lose weight. Initially.

What happens to your metabolism ensures that you will not be able to lose weight in the long run.

You see, your metabolism adjusts to the amount of calories you eat and slows itself down to that level. When you go on a low carb diet, your metabolism is initially high. You reduce your calorie intake so you lose weight. But then your metabolism slows down and you stop losing weight even though you're still eating that reduced amount of calories.

Another thing which is bad about low carb diets is that it's hard to keep at them for a long time. Why? Try to imagine eating no carbs or very little of them. Sure, you can pull it off for a while. But not for long. When you stop being on that diet what happens? Your metabolism is still slow but now you're eating carbs again. What happens is that now you gain back all the weight that you lost and more.

That's why if you're using a low carb diet, you're doomed to fail.

What you should do is follow a diet which lets you eat a reasonable amount of calories of all food groups and use the Shifting Calories method to keep your metabolism running high. Then you'll succeed in losing weight and maintaining your weight loss for a long time.
