#3 People feel out of control with carbs

You've seenrepparttar plethora of new books and articles surfacing regarding carbohydrate addictions or cravings. Many people have bought intorepparttar 149568 mentality that they are 'addicted' to carbs (muchrepparttar 149569 same way we get addicted to cigarettes or caffeine).

That depends on which study you read. There have been mixed reports, some say they work, some say they give yourepparttar 149573 same results as a low fat diet.

You have to be dedicated to getting overrepparttar 149575 transition period (often called carb withdrawal) which can feel pretty lousy.

However for those just looking for a chance to eat allrepparttar 149577 'bad' food they want and still lose tons of weight in 2 weeks - save yourselfrepparttar 149578 pain,repparttar 149579 carb withdrawal andrepparttar 149580 keto-strips and just cut down your portion sizes.
