In a low-carb diet, or a ketogenic diet (an extremely low-carb diet), you drastically reduce or completely eliminate the amount of glucose you eat. Once glucose has been eliminated from the body and there are no carbs available for your body to use for energy, the body will turn to stored fat instead, helping you lose weight fast.
How They Work: Fat blockers are similar in nature to carbohydrate blockers in that they are intended to inhibit the absorption of dietary fat and cholesterol into your system.
