“No carb” diets are not sustainable and are specifically designed for medically based issues metabolic and / or immune issues and should not be used unless medically supervised to ensure the management of any adverse side effects. “low carb” diets have a higher percentage of fat and protein compared to carbohydrates …. The general rule for fat and protein efficient dietary protocols are 25% carbohydrate 25% fat and 50 % protein. The low carb protocols are effective for most of the population approx. 70% of dieters do well with fat and protein patterns… as most of the population are fat and protein efficient and insulin sensitive in some respect. Other nutrition protocols are either Mediterranean … a balance of fat protein and carbohydrate or high carbohydrate like vegetarian or vegan protocols.
