Obesity is a problem. It is a medical emergency and is a bigger threat to our health than smoking. Obesity is a disease that can affect anyone, regardless of race, gender, age, or socio-economic status. It can strike anyone at any time.
You may have heard that low carb and fasting are two of the most effective ways to lose weight, but what does the science say?
The Low Carb-Fast Diet is a low-carb, high-fat diet that restricts carbs and encourages fat loss. It typically consists of bacon, eggs, steak and cheese. While the scientific community is skeptical of the diet, the diet’s popularity is on the rise, and for good reason.
Which is more successful for weight loss: starving or a low-carbohydrate, high-fat diet? It’s like to debating whether Superman or Batman is the more powerful superhero.
You’ve probably already figured it out. If not, here’s what Dr. Jason Fung has to say in his most recent article:

Spoiler alert: Superman is the most powerful of them all……along with the mail. When it comes to weight reduction, no diet is better than no diet.
However, depending on your perspective, the LCHF diet may offer about 70% of the advantages of fasting without really starving oneself. It isn’t all terrible.
Actually, it’s more superheroic. Like Batman, for example.
