I feel that low carb dieting is the way to go to loose weight. Many nutritionalists do not like this diet because it goes completely against the formal education that they have received. I know that the school system taught me the same things.... you know, the 5 basic food groups.... what you should have each day....
In my opinion, that old time thinking is what has made our society so overweight. Perhaps Low Carb dieting is not the "perfect" diet, but it works.
You should not just shoot something down just because it is new, or goes against your traditional formal education.
