Something really worth sharing!

Here is a brilliant excerpt from one of Dr.Eades' books, Protein Power LifePlan, page 51.

"If you want to lose weight you have to watch the calories - even on a low-carbohydrate diet - particularly if you’re a small person. Remember, low-carbohydrate intake means a lower insulin level; and a lower insulin level means that you can easily unload fat from your fat cells. But, if your body has no need to use any of the fat from your fat cells because it has more than enough fat to meet all its needs coming from your diet, it’s not going to go after your stored fat, and you won’t lose weight. To lose weight you’ve got to create an energy deficit.For the vast majority of people, simply following a low-carbohydrate diet will easily create enough of a caloric deficit to bring about a reasonable weight loss."

This is completely true for me. I am shortish at 5 foot 3 inches, peri-menopausal,and I have Hashimotos' Thyroiditis (hypothyroidism that can mimic insulin resistance).

Feel free to comment on this topic. It is very interesting to me.
