So true!

This isn’t actually true… Cutting carbs helps you lose FAT:
Your body usually runs on glycogen, which comes from carbohydrates
When your glycogen stores are depleted, your body needs to run off another fuel
It oxidates fatty acids and uses that as energy (ketones)
Hence, fat loss.

^^ Actually, studies have shown that on the long term there is no difference in terms of weight loss between people on a balanced low calorie diet and those on a ketogenic diet. And what the post says here is that the bigger initial weight loss of those on the ketogenic diet is due to water weight. When you’re on a ketogenic diet, the body tries to get rid of the excess ketone bodies in the blood through urine. That is why you lose more initial weight.
