I've done slimming world and it's got weight off and kept it off .
I'm craving protein and fats and wonder if low carb would work and maintain the loss ?
How does it work ? Does it naturally restrict calories ? If so how ? I'd love steak n cheeses for eg allowed the former on sw but v v LImitrd amount on sw - it looks too god to be true ? Do you have to measure portion size ?

I lost 6 stone doing low carb. The science is what convinced me.

To put it as simply as possible - insulin is a fat storage hormone. To keep fat storage low and tap into the fat you've got stored you need to keep insulin low. What spikes insulin the highest? Carbs. Low carb = low insulin. It cured my sorry broken body let me tell you.
