Which Is Best? A Low-Fat or Low-Carb Diet?

Good morning everyone and Happy Monday!

Low-fat or Low-Carb..? This has been a controversial topic since Robert Atkins came out with the Atkins diet with the two camps in fervent opposition. Which one is best? If you want to lose weight, feel great and keep yourself healthy long-term, which diet is right for you?

In today’s Motivational Monday I am going to talk about the results of a recent study, funded by the National Institutes of Health, that seems to answer this very question. The study followed 150 people from diverse backgrounds for one year. Half were asked to follow a low-carb diet while the others were asked to follow a low-fat diet, and the results were interesting.

One diet was particularly beneficial for weight loss and heart disease, and in today’s video you can find out which one it was. But is that the final say? Would you change your eating habits based on this study alone? Watch the video and see what you think.

Once you do I’d love to hear from you! Do you follow a low-fat or a low-carb diet? Have you ever followed one only to then switch to the other? If so, what were the results for you? I’d love to hear in the comments below.

Eating well and staying healthy is a journey that needs to be engaged every day. Whatever diet you choose, I encourage you to eat a whole foods diet. Essentially, foods as they exist in nature. That one habit alone can go a long way towards optimizing your health.

Have a great Monday everyone and a happy week!
