Is Low Carb Good For Women?

I used to be on a low carb diet, I quit when the weight stopped coming off and I had weird things that happened to my body. Embarassed soon after that I heard that high protein and low carb diets could affect women who want to get pregnant now or in the future. I am not sure that this is true but like I said I had weird things happening to me and am debating if low carb diets are even worth it. Question any help would be great!! Smile

thanks!

Only uneducated people say that lowcarb is bad. Go to Atkins.Com and read about the health benefits. That's right, benefits! If it was so bad to go low carb then doctors wouldn't be putting their patients on it.

You are only eating a very low amount of carbs for the first two weeks and then you start adding them back on. You add until you get to your bodies carb intake needs. This way you aren't really on a lowcarb diet, you are just eating the carbs that you need and not the carbs that you don't! What is so unhealthy about that?
