Hello Friends - we all talk about low carb diet - LCHF - from time to time.
Here is some thing I found in my old email- unfortunately not allowed to post a link.
***** What Studies Say About the Benefits and Risks of Going Low Carb ****
First, the benefits may be reaped almost immediately. According to one study in October 2016 in PLOS One, people who ate three lower-carb meals (of less than 30 percent carbs each) reduced their insulin resistance by more than 30 percent compared with people who consumed higher-carb meals (60 percent carbs).

You can see the results, too. In January 2015, the Journal of Nutrition conducted two studies comparing lower-carb and low-fat diets, finding that of the two approaches, going lower carb helped people shave off more visceral fat, a type of belly fat that hugs organs and is linked to disease. (3) A meta-analysis published in June 2016 in Obesity Reviews also concluded that in obese people, a low-carb diet reduced fat over the course of a year (but not body weight), with the greatest benefits seen in a very-low-carb diet.

NOTE : Please note, I am not an expert - have read many sites and books - but don't remember everything and do not follow l LCHF diet. Hard to do for a Gujarati - Vegetarian. This info is for newbies - general basics.
