The rules for following a low carb diet can work for a while, until you start freely feeding. Then weight loss stops. Freely feeding on protein and veggies is a bad idea for the most efficient weight loss. It’s way too easy to eat 2,000-3,000 calories of dead animule and butter-drenched veggies in a sitting, and then bitch because you’re not losing weight. A serving of ribs from Outback is 3,000 calories, and that’s just the ribs. Most patients will stop adding out of control butter to their veggies, and switch to low calorie dressing. The problem is you probably have to limit your dead animal intake to a pound to a pound and a half a day. Because it’s hard to lose weight quickly enough to stay motivated, eating 2 pounds of protein a day. Weight loss is just too slow on 32 ounces of dead animule a day. Way too many patients start eating this much, and stop losing weight.
