What is it about the low carb diet that makes it so popular?

Here are 3 reasons:

1. You can eat as much as you want

While the type of food is restricted to low carb or no carb, you don't have to restrict how much food you eat (in theory).

Low Carb Diet

Low carb diet can produce significant weight loss in short period of time.

2. You can eat 'bad' food.

Human nature being what it is, we love to break the rules, step over the line, tempt fate, and do something 'bad'.

We've been told for years that low carb foods - foods like eggs bacon, cheese, cream cheese, butter etc, are bad for us.See the Race Nights Australia site - for fundraising for schools . With low carb diets we can lose weight while breaking all the low fat rules we've come to resent.

3. People feel out of control with carbs

You've seen the plethora of new books and articles surfacing regarding carbohydrate addictions or cravings. Many people have bought into the mentality that they are 'addicted' to carbs (much the same way we get addicted to cigarettes or caffeine).

They feel that when they eat carbs, their cravings get out of control and instead of having one brownie for example, they can't stop the cravings and they eat the whole tray. So for some, low carb foods become the safe territory where they can eat and not feel out of control.

Atkins Diet - the most popular Low Carb Diet

The Atkins Nutritional Approach, popularly known as the Atkins Diet or just Atkins, is the most marketed and well-known low-carbohydrate diet.

Food pyramid

It was adapted by Dr. Robert Atkins in the 1960s from a diet he read in the Journal of the American Medical Association and utilized to resolve his own overweight condition following medical school and graduate medical training. After successfully treating over ten thousand patients, he popularized the Atkins diet in a series of books, starting with Dr. Atkins' Diet Revolution in 1972. In his revised book, Dr. Atkins' New Diet Revolution, Atkins updated some of his ideas, but remained faithful to the original concepts.
