Do you all find low-fat or low-carb diets to be easier? i know low-carb diets take away most sweets...low-fat just takes away fat, but still leaves the sweets. On a low-fat diet u can use nutri grain bars, oatmeal, and all that but u can still consume sugar...thats why im looking into the subway diet. In the morning ill eat a bowl of cinnamon roll oatmeal, then for lunch a Sub, for dinner a sub. I DONT workout for bodybuilding, i workout for general fitness. I go in the gym every other day just to workout every muscle, im usually done in 25 minutes, i cant get it in me to stay longer, lol. I also have workout videos at home and am doing abdominal videos everyday, or every other day for about 20 minutes a time, hoping it can flatten my belly. Sorry to get off track, but i know people say low-fat is hard for working out-so i was just stating that im not bodybuilding. So low-fat or low-carb easier???

i would say low fat would be more easy because basically everything you eat contains either simple or complex carbs...however this is just my opinion

Low fat is easier to stick to, by FAR.

Low fat's easier, but what's wrong with a "balanced" diet?

Yeah, calorie reduced diets that are balanced>any low-carb/low-fat diet.

I'm with them. There are no shortcuts.
