These Low-Carb Cookbooks Make Forging a New Habit Easy (Yes, Really)

The low-carb movement might have been around for decades, but it's about to experience another major surge in popularity thanks to the high-fat, low-carb ketogenic diet, which some experts have dubbed "the number one diet in 2018."

Whether you plan to stick to all the keto diet rules or cherry-pick a few, there are a number of benefits of going low-carb. Osteopathic physician Joseph Mercola, DO, puts it simply: "In essence, the reason why low-carb diets work so well is because it helps you escape this non-fiber, carb-based metabolism that depends on insulin levels to drive blood sugar into cells and use carbs for fuel." According to the Mayo Clinic, low-carb diets are generally used for losing weight, but may have benefits beyond this, "such as reducing risk factors associated with type 2 diabetes and metabolic syndrome."
