Low Carb Megathread


Hey there,

I stumbled upon this thread on low carb diets and I had to share it. I couldn't find if it was shared previously.


It has everything explained nice and simple.


Pretty informative thread. I've read a bit by Phinney and Horvath and included their studies in a research review I wrote for school.


That's a pretty great thread. Lots of information.



good stuff. For all those who still believe that a Calorie burned is a Calorie burned:

"Generally, low carb diets donĂ¢??t require you to keep track of caloric intake. A calorie is the energy needed to raise the temperature of one kilogram of water one degree Celsius. Your body does not literally burn foods like a calorimeter. Different macronutrients (i.e., carbohydrate, fat, and protein) have different effects on hormones, which have different effects on fat storage, and provide different amounts of energy to the body in different ways."
