There is still confusion I have about the AH diet, and all other low carb, high fat diets.
Let us assume:
- Eating in the right macro proportions (fat, protein and carbs) promotes the body to burn fat for energy instead of sugar/carbs
- Eliminating most sugars and carbs from ones diet eliminates cravings and promotes satiety on fewer calories
- Calories in – calories out doesn’t work because the body rebels by lowering metabolism and increasing hunger to maintain the set point.
Does weight loss come due to a net reduction of calories? Or because eating in this way promotes fat burning? Or both? I am confused. I have lost zero weight and think I am eating the right food, but too much.
