Thanks for the link nb!

I had great success with low carb diet several years ago and kept my extra weight off for 5 years I guess...then I stopped smoking AND started homebrewing in the same year. Now that the body has adjusted, I can maintain my weight (about 10-12kg overweight) but just have trouble losing.

Lowering caloric intake and exercising does help, and many people lose a lot of weight in that way, but the low carb high fat approach works well for my body when losing weight, then eating healthy and moderating fat, calories, etc. works well for maintaining...all of us are different and must find what works for our particular body.


Two weeks to ferment, two more in the kegs
but in just one night it was drained to the dregs

I tried low carb for 2 months straight, while exercising and carefully tracking all calories and carbs every day. Didn't drink beer the whole time (!)

I lost *maybe* a pound.

I went off the low carb diet but still tracked my calories and exercise, and suddenly dropped 2-3 pounds in the next week.

It's not about low carb necessarily, nor is is only about caloric intake vs caloric burn from exercise.

I lost 60 pounds and kept it off by a lifestyle change diet. There are many factors in play here, and I doubt this is the thread to explain it all in. I will say, however, that I'm able to keep that weight off and drink a fair amount of beer at the same time. Now that's a match made in heaven.
