Weight Loss Tip: It is important to eat at least some carbohydrates when you are dieting, even if you are on the Atkins diet. Without carbohydrates, your body will be unable to metabolize the nutrition coming in, which in turn, means that your body will be unable to provide you with energy. Instead, your body will just store any food you eat and hope to be able to use it later.

But weight loss? Not so much.3,4
Does that seem contrary to everything you’ve heard? Of course it does—but don’t shoot the messenger.
