Sheryl Young, family nurse practitioner at Creston Medical Clinic, 1610 W. Townline St., Suite 200, said there's plenty of information about low-carb diets.The problem is, not all of it delivers the same message. "There is so much different opinion on this," she said."But basically what I think happens is, it's fewer calories." Young said protein-rich foods sometimes serve to decrease a person's hunger, or cravings, thus lowering daily caloric intake.But they can also supply too much fat and cholesterol and not enough nutrients. "They are not necessarily low-fat," she said.Young said she promotes weight loss, when it's needed, by using a common-sense approach. "Everybody who is grossly overweight needs to lose weight," she said."I encourage my patients to do what works for them. ...I wish there was a magic pill." But such a pill doesn't exist.In its place, Young said, there needs to be a lifestyle change, not a quick-fix diet.She only recommends a low-carb diet to those who believe they can stick to it long term. "It's a change of eating for life," she explained.As for Young, she thinks it's valuable to look at all aspects of weight loss, and, later, maintaining a healthy weight. "You know - moderation," she said.
