What has contributed the most to your success on low carb?

What has contributed the most to your success on low carb? We asked our members and got almost 1,600 answers. The three things that have helped the most were:

  1. Intermittent fasting
  2. Education
  3. Recipes

Here’s how to get started with each of these – and improve your chance of success:

1. Fast intermittently

Eating when you’re not hungry can definitely slow down weight loss – even on a low-carb diet. Intermittent fasting takes care of this issue AND maximizes fat burning.

If you want to get started, check out this video course about how to do it:

We also offer a free guide, written by Dr. Jason Fung, about fasting:

2. Understanding why low carb works

Learning about why low carb works is also important for people to make educated decisions about what to eat (and what not to eat). People particularly put forward that learning about the fat-storing hormone insulin was an eye opener that contributed to better results.

Here are our three must-see videos about insulin:

  • Is obesity caused by too much insulin?
  • Weight control – calories or insulin
  • What causes insulin resistance?
