Most patients can lose 10-30 pounds by (almost) freely feeding on a low carbohydrate diet. The first 20 pounds or so is fairly easy, when you restrict your carbohydrate intake to 10-20 grams per feeding. To lose much more than 30 pounds, most patients need a way to limit calories as well as carbohydrates. It is way to easy to eat way too many calories, (almost) freely feeding on a low carbohydrate diet. The average Chef Salad at most restaurants is more than 800 calories. IHOP doesn’t sell an omelet with less than 1200 calories. California Pizza Kitchen has more than half a dozen salads with more than 2000 calories. Just because you’re restricting carbohydrates, doesn’t mean you are going to lose weight.
