Is a Low-Carb or Low-Fat Diet Better for Weight Loss?

There's a longstanding debate among scientists and dieters alike about the best way to shed pounds. Those in the more traditional school maintain that decreasing total calories is most important, while others passionately argue that the "calorie is a calorie" dogma is wrong, and that cutting carbohydrates in particular is the most effective way to trim fat. According to researchers in the low-carb camp, carbohydrates are more likely to promote weight gain than protein or fat because they increase levels of insulin, a hormone that drives fat storage.

I believe there are good carbs and bad carbs. If you read the Bible, the food that seems to be most often presented is bread or something else of grain, such as parched "corn". Those who lived for over 100 years ate bread.

I believe this low-carb diet can go to extremes. It's true that wheat and some others are GMO, and some have gluten intolerances. The key is to find good carbs (I still eat wheat though) and be temperate in all things, like the Bible tells us to.

It's not healthy to eat a lot of anything, but carbs can help us. Oats are actually good for us, including the fact that they can help to lose weight.

The idea of a low-carb and high protein diet that some take on, I believe is especially dangerous, because it seems to encourage eating a lot of meat, and very few grains, which (whole grains) contain a lot of fiber. Meat takes a long time to pass through the system, and isn't healthy, but fiber can help with that (I think). But...carbs that don't have a lot of fiber, such as the refined stuff, may be best to cut down on those...

I'm not a professional though.

Carbs, Not Fats, Bad for You: Study

Global dietary guidelines should possibly be changed to allow people to consume somewhat more fats, to cut back on carbohydrates and in some cases to slightly scale back on fruits and vegetables, a large study suggests.
