What are low carb diets? And why do low carb diets work. In this video I will give an overview about which people could benefit from a low carb diet. I talk about the difference between eating a carbohydrate versus a protein versus a fat meal. The 2 compartment model of calories and how a high carb or low carb diet will dictate through insulin whether fat is stored or whether fat is burnt. I will talk about why low carbohydrate diets work. Finally, I will talk about how many carbohydrates per day is considered a low carb diet. Low carbohydrate diets are often called ketogenic diets or keto for short because when fat is burnt, ketones are produced as fuel for your body.
