Contributed by Leo Tat of Authority Diet
Back in the 90s, the Atkins Diet was popular. While it was assumed a fad diet, accumulating evidence suggests that low-carb diets such as Atkins do work.
Low-fat diets have been the mainstream diet promoted for weight loss, but over 50 comparison studies of low-carb and low-fat demonstrate low-carbs lose dieters more weight.
The following infographic by AuthorityDiet.com gives reasons to why low-carb diets work.
Your body fat cannot be accessed while your insulin is high. Dietary carbohydrates raise your insulin which blocks fat burning. By reducing our carbohydrate consumption, insulin remains low, allowing the low-carb dieters to lose weight.
