Low-Carb Diets

Low-carb diets have been popular for decades — especially for weight loss. There are several types of low-carb diets, but all involve limiting carb intake to 20–150 grams per day. The primary aim of the diet is to force your body to use more fats for fuel instead of using carbs as a main source of energy.

How it works:

Low-carb diets emphasize unlimited amounts of protein and fat while severely limiting your carb intake. When carb intake is very low, fatty acids are moved into your blood and transported to your liver, where some of them are turned into ketones. Your body can then use fatty acids and ketones in the absence of carbs as its primary energy source.
