The advantage of living on a very low carb diet (10-20 grams of carb per feeding) is that you’ll be less hungry, you’ll have fewer cravings and you’ll have more energy. The disadvantage of very low carb living is that carbs are fun, and you deprive yourself of the feel-good carb kick, you don’t get the high, and you have to monitor what goes in your mouth very carefully. You also won’t lose weight living very low carb, unless your keep your calories under 1500 a day or so. You absolutely, positively cannot freely feed on a very low carb diet and expect to lose weight. Most patiients feel better and do better losing weight the very low carb way, because they are less hungry and have fewer cravings. Your call.
