Default What's the difference between low-carb and SB

I have been researching several diets to see what is right for me. I want to know what the difference is between low-carb and SB? You are watching your carbs on both of these. I'm thinking a low-carb, low-fat diet sounds the healthiest to me. I need something I can do the rest of my life. Any info. would be greatly appreciated. Everyone have a wonderful day!

Hi Amy! Welcome to our area of the boards

SB is definitely NOT a low carb diet, though many think it is, but it's surely not. SB recommends that approx 40% of your daily intake come in the way of carbs, but it's the kind of carbs that makes SB different. You want to eat whole grains, not the stripped versions. You CAN eat whole wheat pasta, brown rice, whole grain bread, cereals like Fiber One, sweet potatoes and much much more. It's a WOE you can easily follow for the rest of your life.

I think one of the best sites to go to for a good overview is:

Please, feel free to join us on our SB WEEKLY SUPPORT BOARDS where we congregate - you'll get lots of answers to your questions on the board from all our members who would be delighted to through you our 2 cents worth

I have attached an article that explains why you need to eat fat on a low carb plan

From my understanding, Sugarbusters is very much like Michel Montignac's Dine out and lose weight plan.

I just wanted to say that south beach is not low carb or low fat, it is 'good carb good fat' ie low gi carbs, and eating fats like olive oil etc ie non saturated fats.
