What nobody tells you about the low carb high fat diet.

1. Food, more than exercise, is the key. 30 minutes of exercise burns you approximately 300 to 400 cal depending on the intensity of what you’re doing. That’s not enough to burn off one Jimmy John’s oatmeal cookie. It’s unimaginable to think that simply going to the gym can make up for all you can…
