2. Popular Low-Carb Diets

Many people choose low-carb diets for potential weight loss, reduced appetite, lower blood pressure, and improved blood sugar levels. The general low-carb diet is anything less than the recommended amount of 130 grams per day. Paleo diets require somewhere between 100-130 grams per day. The ketogenic diet is highly restrictive and may call for no more than 20 grams of carbs a day.
