The one easy diet that truly melts away pounds

It seems like you’ve been trying to lose weight forever, and you keep going back to those “low fat” foods that everybody’s been pushing on you — even though you haven’t seen any results.

You’ve cut the fat out of your milk, and you’ve given up on nuts and avocado altogether because they’re “high fat” foods — and everybody’s been telling you that’s a bad thing.

The latest example of that can be found right in the pages of the once-respectable Journal of the American Heart Association, where a new study claims a low-fat diet is just as good as a low-carb one for weight loss.

Over six months, dieters lost about 15 pounds no matter which one they tried.

That smelled fishy to me. Heck, I know many low-carbers who’ve lost that much weight in the first month alone!

So I dug into the details and uncovered the little stunt the researchers pulled. Turns out this study, which supposedly compares a low-carb diet to a low-fat one, contained ZERO actual low-carb dieters.

The low-fat group got 65 percent of their calories from carbs, while the “low-carb” group got 45 percent of their calories from carbohydrates, with some of them also getting walnuts.

That’s lower in carbs than the first group, sure, but it’s not a TRUE low-carb diet by any stretch of the imagination.

At the start of a REAL low-carb diet such as the first phase of Atkins, dieters are limited to just 20 grams of carbs per day. Yet in the study, the “low-carb” dieters were allowed roughly 900 grams of carbs per day — 50 TIMES more than folks in the first phase of Atkins, which is considered the gold standard.

Even with the odds stacked in its favor, the low-fat diet STILL didn’t help people lose more weight…only as much as the “slightly reduced-carb” diet.

But don’t settle for “as good as.” You can do so much better — because studies routinely show that low-carb dieters lose more weight more rapidly, keep it off longer, AND have better heart health along with a lower risk of diabetes.
