Cut Carbs From Your Diet
Over 20 randomized controlled trials have now shown that low-carb meal plans lead to 2-3 times more weight loss than low-fat meal plans.
This is true even when the low-carb groups are allowed to eat as much as they want, while the low-fat groups are calorie restricted and hungry. Low-carb diets also lead to quick reductions in water weight, which gives people near instant results… a major change on the scale is often seen within a few days.
There are also studies comparing low-carb and low-fat meal plans, showing that low-carb meal plans specifically target the fat in the belly, and around the organs and liver. What this means is that a particularly high proportion of the fat lost on a low-carb meal plan is the dangerous and disease promoting abdominal fat. Just avoiding the refined carbs (white breads, pastas, etc) should be sufficient, especially if you keep your protein high.
However… if you need to lose weight quick, then consider dropping your carbs down to 50 grams per day. This will put your body into ketosis, killing your appetite and making your body start burning primarily fats for fuel. Of course, low-carb diets have many other health benefits besides just weight loss. They can have life-saving effects in type 2 diabetics, for example.
Bottom Line: Studies have shown that low-carb meal plans are particularly effective at getting rid of the fat in the belly area, around the organs and in the liver.
