Again, interested in your thoughts and experiences. This article offers arguments and explanations saying that the effectiveness of low-carb eating tapers off after initial, dramatic success.
The focus is on fat loss and ketogenic diets; perhaps that is the difference between Mark's long-term success and what the article's author claims will be short-term results of VLC eating. On the other hand, some in this forum have been VLC for quite a long time, with good results.
How much of a selection bias do you think we see here? (Does PB appear highly effective because those for whom it doesn't work leave?)
Is there value in carb cycling / refeeding to deal with leptin resistence?
