this is a Newsweek article. What bothers me is that the bacteria, which they say are less likely to cause weight gain, grow with low- carb diets. If you are eating foods with a lot of Inulin you might want to rethink this.
IMO, most of these articles, and the studies associated, take a narrow view focused on diet (eg short term weight loss). I know personally on my low carb diet, the bigger issue is keeping weight on, not how to remain slim.Maybe its because of the level of carb restriction compared to a "normal" diet plan. When your body is burning protein and fat for energy with very little carb, things remain pretty balanced. but friends of mine who have gone on "diets" like Atkins all have admitted to me they cheat on the their carb intake. for low carbers with D, i think the cheating occurs less, if at all depending on your regimen. I assume if your low carb, your tuning your body to process food with particularly protein and fat levels. If you start mixing and matching, i would assuming enzymes get out of whack that lead to inconsistent results.
When I find this stuff, I have to flip in on its head. Everything is about losing weight so you have to think the opposite. One of the reasons for starting this forum is because our issues are different and what they put out there isn't particularly helpful.
I know about a lot of folks who say they are low carb but cheat. These aren't people who have to live with a meter. Cheating doesn't work when you bg's go into orbit.
I put up this article because it talks about gut bacteria as being important to losing weight. That means it's important for keeping weight on. Inulin, they say, helps grow the bacteria that helps you lose weight so I'm thinking that might be something we want to keep an eye on.
