Why Low Carbohydrate Diets Don’t Produce Long-Term Results

Came across a great article today.  It’s a long read, but a very good one.  Here’s an excerpt:
 
"During the 70s, clinicians began noticing that people that followed the Atkins’ diet regained their weight very rapidly once they ceased the diet. In fact, they found the longer a person had been on the low-carbohydrate diet, the more carbohydrate sensitive they became.

Further, when this diet was combined with exercise it caused people to become even more carbohydrate sensitive. This could be the devastating pitfall, because once the low-carbohydrate diet has ended, and the person tries to resume eating carbohydrates, his body tends to horde and store the carbohydrates as opposed to using them for energy.

The person notices a fast accumulation of body water that’s followed by an abnormally fast body fat gain. Although the water weight will eventually drop off, the person notices that he gains body fat very easily, but loses it more slowly in the future."
