Where do the low carb diets fit in if you’re trying to lose weight? For women, it’s a very good thing. For men, it may not be so good, and here’s why I say this. Women often try to lose weight and maintain on a diet, and they do much better than men. Men try to lose fast, and then return to their old habits. That can be a shortcut for disaster. Men will lose a great deal of muscle mass and they won’t build back. Women who turn to these diets and stick with them, actually can do quite well long term.
