Low-carb diet is a general term referring to numerous specific diets which advocate for a reduction of carbohydrate intake, as a healthier balance of foods. The concept is based in the fact that grain-based foods cause the body to store the fat it consumes, rather than to burn it for fuel. Low-carb diets, in various prescriptions, favor "complex carbs" (vegetables) over "simple carbs," (grains and starches), while also reducing the consumption of saturated fat in favor of unsaturated fat.
