While I don’t agree with much (anything?) of what the nutritionist has to say, I do believe many people jump into low carb dieting without much knowledge on how to eat right [10]. The result is a diet low in both carbs and fat, thus not enough fuel to maintain strength and energy. Let me know what you think.
