Explore the "hype" and "health" of trendy low-carb diets! In this topical nutrition video, two friends have lunch together but have entirely different meals. One is on a low-carbohydrate diet. In fact, for the first two weeks, she didn't eat any carbs. She thinks bread is the enemy. The other is on the track team. The whole team has a big pasta party to carb-load the night before every meet. Both hold fast to their ideas about nutrition and search for information to back up their position.

In any grocery store you'll see "Low in Carbs" printed on any number of food products. Manufacturers are responding to the popular diet programs which limit, often drastically, the consumption of carbohydrates. Many dieters claim quick and substantial weight loss while health professionals state cutting out carbs is unhealthy and doesn't support long-term weight loss.

This video cuts through the hype and looks at the facts about carbohydrates and how they work in our bodies. Teaching materials included.
