Can a High Carb Diet Help Me To Lose Weight?
Any weight loss diet, including a high carbohydrate diet, which helps you to eat fewer calories than you burn will cause you to lose weight.
Most government and health bodies promote a balanced diet which contains foods from all major food groups, as illustrated in the Food Guide Pyramid.
For example, the US Department of Agriculture advises that a healthy weight loss diet should contain about 25-30 percent calories from fat, about 55 percent calories from carbohydrates and about 15 percent calories from protein. Fad diets – diets that severely restrict or ban foods from any of the major food groups – are not recommended.
