Are you on a low-carb diet?

THE SAD SIDE OF LOW CARB DIETS

Recently a report in the Archives of Internal Medicine stated that people who stuck to a low fat moderate carbohydrate diet for a year not only lost as much weight (30 pounds) as those on a low carb plan, but they also felt happier.  The reason: “Too much fat and protein may reduce your levels of mood boosting serotonin, leaving people feeling depressed,” says lead study author Grant D. Brinkworth, Ph.D.

The Skinny: 

If you are feeling down for no apparent reason you should monitor your carbohydrate intake and do not dip below 130 grams per day.  Ideally, weight loss expert Christine Avanti recommends a minimum of 200 grams per day and says that her clients continue to lose weight at that range.
