Eliminating carbohydrates is no guarantee that you’ll lose weight. By consuming so many more high-fat and protein-rich foods, you’ll likely end up consuming far more calories than you did previously. If this doesn’t lead to weight gain, it will at least stall any weight loss.
Many diets give dieters a meal plan, rules, lists of foods to eat – some sort of structure. The low-carbohydrate diet entirely lacks that. Most people won’t know what foods to replace carbohydrate-laden foods with, and some won’t even know which foods to eliminate. People run the risk of nutritional deficiencies if they attempt a low-carbohydrate diet without proper planning. Lowering carbohydrates will probably only induce weight loss within the confines of a formal diet prepared by a commercial company or dietician.
