Over my many years of writing this blog, I’ve received numerous “expressive” emails from readers. Needless to say, I’ve learned to tread carefully around certain topics. Whether it be politics or the minimum wage debate, there are definitely some subject matters that tend to fill up my inbox more than others. Having recently completed a series of posts about weight loss, I can now add another topic to that list: the low-carb/keto diet debate.
Despite knowing how important diet and exercise are to health and well being, it can be difficult to find the time and energy needed to take care of ourselves in this regard
Over the last few weeks we’ve been talking about diet and weight loss. I tend to view weight loss/gain from an energy balance perspective and contend that folks losing weight (associated with fat) on carbohydrate-restricted diets such as keto are likely just eating fewer calories than they were before. For the record, this is my view on any diet: if weight is being lost it’s all about the calories.
