If you are following a low-carb, high-fat diet (similar to the Atkins diet) then you may be angry according to a Food report recently published in the Archives of Internal Medicine.

This study which was done in Austraila with 106 obese members participating showed that those with a low-fat, high-carb diet were less depressed and angry after a year than those on a low-carb, high-fat diet.

Both diets did work for weight loss and on average the participants lost 30 pounds.

There are many reasons as to why those who were on the Atkins like diets were not as content as the others on the low-fat high carb diet. One hypothesis was that the participants may have been going through withdrawal symptoms from removing carbs from their diets which shows us how addicting carbohydrates can be to some people.

No matter which diet you chose to incorporate into your life you need to make sure it is something that you can live with long term as it will become a lifestyle change. If you are feeling depressed, or angry, then you might want to find play around with your food to find a diet that makes you feel happy and energized.

What were some of your experiences if you followed a low-carb/high-fat diet or a high-carb/low-fat diet?
