And let’s not overlook the significant reduction in high-glycemic carbohydrates: Cutting out refined grains and most added sugars eliminates two top sources of empty calories that raise your body’s level of insulin, our primary energy-storage hormone.
If I eat very low carb for a long period of time and then indulge in a (always grain/sugar-free) higher carb day, my weight loss stalls and it takes a long time to start losing weight again. Since nobody is 100% perfect on any diet, all the time, is it better for me to increase carbs to 20-25% overall, or just continue on very low carb? It’s so confusing.

Another person may only be able to train moderately 2 times a week, depending on their health status. Everyone needs to find their own threshold. That is not irresponsible advice, in my opinion.
