Why choose LC?
 
For me, low carbing is:

very effective
very satiating
Decreases hunger & cravings
Quite easy to eat anywhere
Healthy !!!

Yup. All of the above.

Family history of type 2 diabetes.

Better nutrition, in my opinion (with whole foods, though; I don't do bars and shakes and stuff like that).

The book made sense to me.

This type of food is preferable to my personal tastes--I'd rather have eggs and give up cereal.

A low carb lifestyle provides me with-
- Natural appetite control
- Natural antidepressant/mood stabilizer
- Stable weight control
- Great sleep
- Clear headedness
- The ability to remain a ‘foodie’ by allowing me a lot of choices
- Satisfying and healthy nutrition
- An effective tool to create FREEDOM from compulsive eating!!!!!

It works :) I also feel better when following a LC WOE. I've tried WW as well as typical low fat/low cal diets and always felt tired and foggy. I get the same result from consuming supposedly healthy whole grain bread that I do from sugar laden ice cream.

Low Carb was not actually what I chose, but I did choose a whole-foods, semi-paleo diet which is low carb by default :D I chose it to be healthier, I just don't want all the additives, preservatives and mystery ingredients in my body.

I don't follow a specific diet plan (other than my own) or a specific type (LC, HC, etc) of diet.

By coincidence (or not?) my nutrition is technically LC. Why? Because it was all that was left once I eliminated all the GMO's, processed foods, etc. that I consider unhealthy.

Why am I eating low carb, and why do I plan to eat this way for the rest of my life?
  • It's healthy. I don't have any lifestyle-related diseases, and I don't want to develop any.
  • To lose weight and keep it off. See above.
  • I can stick to it long term, enjoying my food options, both at home and while eating out.

That's it. It's not rocket science.

Low carb in trading up in most all respects.
