Thank you. It was an interesting article. Really enjoyed it. I used to get skim milk, low fat everything. Never could keep the weight off. Then one day I decided the real thing had to be healthier than the artificially lower fat versions and made the switch. Still significantly over weight, but no heavier than when I was using low fat.

I am curious though. How many carbs daily is considered low carb? I am currently eating around 160 carbs daily give or take a few. Doing this I have been very successful in bringing my sugar levels down to normal levels.

Less than 50 grams per day depending on your sensibility.

Graou is right - you need to get at or under 50g per DAY, to consider it low-carb. But low-carb is not normally sustainable without the high-fat part. When you remove the carbs which have been your fuel for energy, you then need to provide a different better fuel for energy and that is fats. When you get rid of the carbs, and get the fats high enough, your body then converts from a glucose-based energy system, to a ketones-based energy system, which is much better especially for diabetics.

Hey guys, LCHF isn't the diet plan that I used. I used a variant of Roy Taylor's 600/calorie a day diet and it worked for me, in 8 weeks my blood sugar levels had normalized and I lost a couple of pounds along the way. The diet basically still functions the same way but with better meal plans since it was developed by a chef.

You guys can look it up and tell me what you think or Pm me

Could you please tell us about your experience with this? It looks like starvation to me. How can it be sustainable? What happens to blood sugar when one goes off this "diet"?

Well, it's a variant but it's not the exact thing. See, David, the guy who made this, is a chef. So he took Dr. Taylor's research and added his own twist to it, he basically made the whole thing balanced and he factored in the time that you would eat.

As for my own experience, it was difficult at first. I had to adjust to a new diet plan, my body had to get used to the intake and the meal schedules. I'm going to admit it's not for everyone because I actually had to commit to the meal plans and the meal schedules so, I guess yeah, I could say it worked for me.
