This is just a hypothetical question that I'm asking purely out of curiosity: If you eat very low carb for a while and then you stop losing weight or you start gaining weight, would that be due to excess protein or excess fat (given that all the food is from healthy sources)? I've heard that if you eat too much protein it gets metabolised the same way as carbohydrates and increases insulin. But then there's also the theory that if you eat lots of fat it turns into fat because of its high calorie content. I'm not sure what to believe about calories...
No announcement yet.
Does excess fat or protein on a low carb diet lead to weight gain?
