    I think it's more that it stops you eating carbs and replaces the lost energy

    "Dr Eric C. Westman, MD and president elect of the American Society of Bariatric Physicians, has 15 years of experience helping patients lose weight and improve their health using low carb. He has also helped do several high-quality scientific studies on low carb."

    I use this also for oil pulling, since you don't swallow, just spit it out after use. Most of the brands in supermarkets taste rather ****** but Lucy Bee and Tiana is really good.

    well, eating more fat and fewer starches implies simpler fat consumption, less appetite, and a superior shot at losing weight. Leptin is another chemical significant for feeling satisfied.

    If you go higher fat you must cut the carbs or you'll pile the pounds on.
    The fat replaces carbs for your energy supply.
    I never buy low fat no fat semi skimmed products only full fat.
    Full fat is normal food all the rest are industrial products that appeared in the 70's and diabetes starts rising as the fat is removed and mostly replaced with sugar or more scientific food like products.
    Fat doesn't make you fat sugars make you fat.
    I now take a magnifying glass with me when shopping.
    Sugars come in many forms and it's worth doing a little research online and then remembering when you see three or four different kinds of sugar on a label.
    Stop and think too... what are all those ingredients in what should be a simple product?
    I can't even pronounce many of them let along digest them.
    A pie a sausage a ready meal what are those long lists of things that are in that product?
    Yes yes they help it to be stored in the warehouse for six months then six months at the shop then six months at your house but what are they?
    These are scientific industrial products from big pharma and big oil.
    Letting those people into our food chain was never going to end well was it.
    A lot of these things are what have become known as food like products but they aren't food.
    The pile you ate today was never tested for dosage with the pile you ate yesterday or how much mixing one with another messes with your mind and body so it is worth missing out as much of those unknowns as possible.
    Want a snack have some nuts and berries have a tin of fish or maybe try not to have anything.
    Celery tomatoes etc.
    Those health bars... read before buying.
    Sweeteners? Diet coke? Sweeteners actually kill your gut biome ad if you drink enugh of the stuff always have a wee little white pill in your twenty cups of tea may actually wipe out those essential bugs all together so you'r running on empty as far as those essential little bugs go.
    Eat fresh eat raw eat cooked eat preserved pickled fermented whatever but try to eat food not the chemistry set and you'll feel and perform so much better.

    I don't know if anyone has already mentioned this. I haven't read every post sorry. A few years ago I was trying to lose weight and while on Slimming World plan I had lost half my goal weight then it halted. I did some research and found a plan called the Harcombe diet. High fat low carb. It worked great, fat doesn't make you fat. It's what you eat with it.

    This is because fat requires more work for your body to break down, and it makes you feel more satiated, with less hunger between meals which leads to snacking. Since it takes longer than carbs to metabolize, it gives you energy consistently throughout the day. Carbs cause your blood sugar to spike, which results in insulin dropping your blood sugar super low. This gives you a "sugar rush" and then a crash, where you feel lethargic and hungry.
