In my life experience, the ketogenic (low carb/high fat) diet has been the only protocol that has resulted in reliable weight loss. And it's been pretty predictable. That is not to say the weight loss has been in a straight line. Anything but. There have been ups and downs. And occasional flat lines. But it works.
Thing is, it works differently for everyone. Variables such as age, gender, starting weight, level of insulin resistance (how much your pancreas has gone on strike and has stopped trying to regulate getting excess glucose out of your blood, also known as type 2 diabetes), etc., can all impact the rate of weight loss.
In my reading on different sites and support group pages I see that many are frustrated if weight loss isn't dramatic. The video below addresses my thoughts on that. [roll tape....]
I’ve been fortunate to have exposure to leading researchers, physicians and journalists regarding the ketogenic diet, also known as LCHF (low carb/high fat). We are all responsible for our own choices, including what we put in our mouths. I welcome questions, comments and even civil criticism. I’m still learning. So, if you have something to add, go for it. Thanks! - Casey
