Low Carbs diet to lose weight, Do it, or not?

Dieting is a massive factor with losing weight. Cutting out carbohydrates works to begin with, but why does it work?
To keep it sweet and simple, Carbohydrates is a macronutrient (like protein and fat) which means we need large amounts of it on a day to day basis for our body to function properly. Cutting this out will mean you will lose weight which is great, right??? No, it’s really not! When we cut carbohydrates out, we will lose weight because our body holds 3 grams of water to every gram of carbohydrate. I personally need around 200 grams of carbohydrates a day, which is around 600 grams of water, so if I cut carbs out that would explain why I have lost around 2 lb by the end of the day. Don’t worry, when you start eating carbs again you will gain weight straight away. The body is pretty amazing and has other systems to get around this depletion. Limit what you eat, stay disciplined, exercise every day and you will reach your goals.
