I know a lot of people really go overboard on the fat when on a low-carb
diet, but I can't do it. I'm just too used to eating lean meat and
generally non-fatty food. I still try to keep things healthy.

Perhaps my better than normal experience health-wise with a low-carb diet is
because the food I eat would still be considered quite healthy, on a
low-carb or not.

When I was in Army Basic Training, we had fat guys lose 40-lbs in 8 weeks,
carbs and everything. Pure exercise weight loss. Of course, I dropped to
about 2% body fat like most of the other reasonably skinny people. You
can't help but to leave the place lean and tough. I've never seen a such
effective weight loss programs as I saw in the Army, but maybe that was just
the Old Army. :^)
