Find an eating plan you can follow the rest of your life, not a short-term diet. Check w/your registered dietitian. Don't try to overly restrict or supplement fat, carbohydrate or protein.

No, life is not...: The answer is no. Life is not black and white, but rather an infinite number of shades of grey (or gray). See, even the spelling of grey (or gray) is not in black and white. Life's biological processes are all happening at the same time, so carbs / proteins / fats are all being metabolized in the body while a person is alive, but the rates or amounts of each type of "fuel" metabolism differ. ...Read more

I regularly eat a brand of low carb wrap with 26 grams of fiber. Is fiber in a processed product like this as beneficial as naturally occurring fiber?

That depends: There are benefits to both soluble and insoluble fiber. They affect the gut bacteria in different ways. So it's hard to say if it's "as beneficial". If the wrap mostly organic, I would continue to include it in your diet and I would fill it with lots of fresh vegetables! ...Read more

Taking a bit of carbs about 50 or 60 grams a day can cause u to slow down weight loss? And is it good to loose about 1 kg in 6 days ? Is it good speed

Taking a bit of carbs about 50 or 60 grams a day can cause u to slow down weight loss? And is it good to loose about 1 kg in 6 days ? Is it good speed

Actually, 50 to 60: grams of carbs daily is already pretty low. The problem with going too low on carbs is it makes a diet really hard to stick to and you can feel fatigued/brain fog with too few calories and carbs. A good formula is: calories=12X body weight in lbs; protein=1 gm/lb; carbs=0.9-1.25 gm/lb; fat=the remainder of calories. 1 kg/2 lbs per week is a little fast. Best to go at pace you can maintain!! ...Read more
