Although low carbohydrate diets have been controversial over the years, there have been many people who have lost weight and kept it off. The issue regarding the controversy comes from the thought that with the reduction of carbs, the dieter increases the protein and fat in their diet to compensate for the lost calories. Today, this isn’t the case. Low carb dieters now balance their diet with increasing their vegetable intake. Yes, some of the recipes do call for higher fat content, but people are losing weight and feeling better while living the low carb lifestyle. Below are five bloggers who have succeeded (or are succeeding) in losing weight and they are sharing their recipes with the world.
