There has been a lot of confusion when it comes to the benefits and reliability of low-carb diets in view of all the conflicting studies and confusing interpretation of the information. Debates are everywhere. So, before making any decisions consider first the a few factors. First, determine the over-all success rate for low-carb and other types of diets are similar. Another factor is little information exists on the long-term efficacy and safety of low-carb diets despite their huge popularity. Lastly, dieters usually experience boredom with a strict version of the low-carb diet and are not able to stay on diets of low carb food. More thorough and controlled long-term studies are needed. Choosing a reliable diet will provide you with a lifetime of proper eating habit and nutrition. If you can see yourself on the diet for a long time then stick to it.
