Low Carb for Weight Loss

Weight loss is a complex, personal process. Instead of eating less, some obesity experts recommend focusing on cutting carbohydrates rather than calorie counting.

Those with pre-diabetes and Type 2 diabetes may also be placed on a low-carb diet plan. A recent study supports the idea that adjusting eating habits this way can positively impact diabetes remission.
