Throughout my career in health I got sucked into the diet craze for personal and professional interest. I wanted to maintain a healthy weight, feel better, avoid illness, and be a sound resource for clients and students. Low carb and high protein meal plans never provided me with consistent positive results. I kept gaining weight, the 'diets' were not sustainable, and I would get sick. Pre-diabetes was right around the corner for me, and thankfully, I dodged that bullet. Check out this brief 8-minute interview with Dr. Michael Greger, founding member of the American College of Lifestyle Medicine, explain why a low carb diet is an epic fail.
