I’m trying to decided which one of these diets will help me to lower my body fat % in the fastest amount of time. I am a 16 year old male and plan on lifting weights soon, if that matters. And please, no bias answers. I’m looking for scientific facts, not opinions. Thank you. Well, I have your answer right here. Low carb is definitely better. Carb, as in the bad carbs that exist in potatos, white rice, white bread, etc. That stuff makes you bloat like mad, and it’s just not healthy for you. Carbs also turn into sugar so you’re basically inhaling a lot of carbs that end up being sugar streaming through your body. By cutting our carbs, your body will be more defined (instead of bloated) plus you feel millions better and you don’t have such a risk of diabetes and whatever. It’s better to eat fruits with natural sugar, than carbs that will turn into far more dangerous sugars in your body. I gave up carbs and I’ve lost weight. I am also less bloated (my stomach has no pudge haha) and I feel better too. As yummy as carbs is, I thought I’d live eating carbs forever since I love them so. . but seeing how it is super unhealthy for you I suppose this is my lifestyle now. I find that incorporating more protein in your diet helps a lot with building more and getting leaner without losing muscle.
