    Most high protein, low carb diets are higher in fat and saturated fats. They avoid certain vegetables, whole grains and fruits - a risky approach, since unprocessed produce is packed with vitamins, minerals, fibre and water; all essential to good health as well as sustainable weight loss. Don't cut out food groups - a balanced diet is recommended with daily physical activity.
