According to the inventors, carbohydrates do not make you feel full and might even make you hungrier. Fats and proteins should make us feel full. Therefore, the advice is to eat (very) few carbohydrates and to not worry about fat. In addition, it is advised to eat less sugar and less salt.
According to Dr Noakes, carbohydrates cause an insulin reaction. If you are insulin resistant, it is more difficult to process carbohydrates. That is why it is important for these people to reduce carbohydrates, according to this diet.
Consult your doctor or dietician before starting this (or any) diet, especially if you are insulin resistant.
