Question: What’s the first thing you think about ditching when you’re looking to lose weight?
Carbs, right? I mean, the most popular diets out there right now — like Whole30, or the keto diet — focus on limiting carbohydrate intake, and they seem to yield pretty legit results. So it only makes sense that if you’re looking to lose weight, you’d think to nix carbs from your diet first.
But also, cutting carbs seems…really hard (pasta! bread! granola!). Luckily, nixing carbohydrates isn’t necessary for weight loss—in fact, most people can lose weight without cutting carbs drastically, says Christy Brissette, registered dietician, and owner of 80 Twenty Nutrition in Chicago.
