What are low carb dieting plans?...

In today's market you'll find many weight loss programs that revolve around carbohydrates. Low-carbohydrate programs are also referred to as controlled carbohydrate, low glycemic, and reduced carbohydrate programs. The programs vary in the foods you eat, some will eliminate carbohydrates while others focus on foods high in sugar and starch.

So how do you decide if this is the right weight loss program for you? One way is by looking at the weight loss programs you've been on before. What type of diets have you tried... what did you experience on those diets... were you able to stick with the program or did you give up?

Did you feel the urge to eat even though you had just eaten or when you weren't hungry? Have you felt groggy or extremely tired and have problems concentrating? Have you just finished a meal but you still want to eat? Do you feel especially tired or sluggish after eating foods high in sugar and/or starches?

If so you may be sensitive to glucose or carbohydrates and this type of diet may be best suited for you.
