  1. Keep in mind that a low carbohydrate eating plan is designed to keep your blood sugar (glucose) from spiking which in turn would jolt insulin production in your body. And when you have too much glucose leftover your body then stores it as fat. By keeping your blood sugar at a steady rate all day long with a low carb diet you’ll have more energy and won’t feel hungry.

  2. Thanks for that information Kevin.

    I had a quick look at your site and it looks good. There is some great information for people who are dieting.
