Not Just A Diet…It’s A Lifestyle

There are many who still think of “low carb” as a diet, but it is, in fact, a “lifestyle”. For a low-carb lifestyle to work, you have to commit to it every single day of your life. If you go on a low-carb “diet” you will only be on it for the length of time you need and then you get off it. The problem with this is that once you are off the “diet”, you will start to see the weight gain again. This is exactly why the word “diet” is loosely applied to anyone thinking about low-carbing. You should really think about this before beginning this particular way of life. Are you really up for the challenge that the “low car” lifestyle brings or are you more for the “diet” that gives you quick, but non-lasting results? For the best approach, anyone considering low-carb should do this as a lifestyle. Yes it will be hard, but the long-term outcome will be well worth choosing the low-carb lifestyle.
