Has anyone safely lost weight on a low-carb diet?
I am considering a low carb diet. I know protein makes you feel more full, and I like protein (eggs, meat, etc). Does anyone know how low you can go on carbs? The brain runs only on carbs, so I don't think you can go too low.

You can focus on eating complex carbs versus simple carbs (the white stuff) but I wouldn't eliminate carbs that's unhealthy and at best temporary most people gain the wait back...and then some.
For health reasons, my DH cut out all carbs, and has lost a lot of weight. Be sure and let your doctor know what you decide first. The white refined carbs seem to be the worst.
