Experiencing Weight Gain On A Low-Carb Diet: Is It Possible?

Filed under: Low-carb side effects — @ April 4, 2008

We all know low-carb is great for weight loss, but can you gain?

When people first start livin’ la vida low-carb and come to me with all their wide-eyed inquisitive questions about this and that regarding this truly amazing lifestyle change, I am always happy to share from my own experiences eating this way for the past four years as well as asking some of my low-carb expert friends who are studying, researching, and working daily within the scientific community into why and how the low-carb diet works so well to help people lose weight and improve their health.

One question I received from a reader in the Netherlands has been partially addressed before in a previous blog post. Longtime readers may recall in December 2006 I wrote a blog post entitled ” Can Low-Carb Evolve Into Making You Fat?” It was about a ridiculous study done on caterpillars fed a high-protein/low-carb diet that claimed that their metabolism actually changed over time to begin storing the few carbohydrates they did eat into fat. Preposterous to say the least and many of my low-carb expert friends agreed.

But what if it was possible that livin’ la vida low-carb could actually make you fatter somehow? It this even within the realm of possibility? That’s what my reader wanted to know when he sent me his e-mail. Click here to read his story and for a rather surprising answer from one of the top low-carb experts in the world.
