    • I have not, but my mom is due to being pre-diabetic, and she lost 12 pounds, of course, she was not heavy to begin with, but she swears going carb free made her feel better.

    • Yes I have and yes I lost weight.  But it’s not something I could, or would even want to stick with.

    • Our brains need a steady supply of glucose which is most efficiently supplied by carbohydrates. That being said, we don’t need to be consuming more than about 200g per day. Carbohydrates also come in varieties. Fruits and vegetables are good sources and also provide fiber and micronutrients.

      Mary’s mother is someone who watches her carbohydrates because of pre-diabetes and that makes much good sense. For the average person who just wants to be healthy or to lose some weight, counting carbohydrate grams works well but to go completely carbohydrate free is not healthy. When the body needs glucose for energy it will break down fat or muscle but there are byproducts in that process that, over the long haul, are toxic, especially to the kidneys.
