low carb diet vs balanced, healthy diet, and losing weight
I recently began a ketogenic diet due to the incredible success a friend of mine had. Over an 8 week period he went from 220 to 185. The key he feels was keeping his carbs very low, under 50 grams per day if possible. I, on the other hand, started out doing the same but felt that my body needed more carbs to feel good. I have been burning roughly 1700 more calories per day than I am consuming. I have taken about 8 pounds off in the first 12 days. So, here is my question. He maintains that for me to lose weight the way he did, I would have to keep the carbs low. But my question is, if I am burning 1700 more calories than I am consuming each day, won't the weight loss be the same, regardless of whether the my diet is low carb?
