I dramatically cut back on carbs 3 years and 2 months ago. So for the last 38 months I have had NO bread (of any type or color), no rice (whatsoever), no bagels, no muffins, no donuts, no pizza (other than a few pizza bites), no pasta, no cakes, no pies, no ice cream, no puddings, no desserts! Yes, I lost some weight.
That is NOT to say I do not ingest carbs. That would be impossible. Plus I worked out that I need some amount of carbs, if nothing else to keep my digestive tract somewhat appeased (though I can tell you (for free) that low carb diets wreak havoc on your stomach especially when you are old (as am I)). I still have my mandatory, medicinal DAILY glass of red wine. That has carbs. I eat Activia yogurt (because it is supposed to help with my stomach). That has lots of carbs. I eat one cup of oatmeal a day — again for my stomach (along with quite a bit of Metamucil). So I do ingest a fair amount of carbs and of late I am PUTTING ON WEIGHT, however hard I try. C’est la vie.
Not sure whether I believe this study. But wanted to share it with you for what it is worth.
