    Low carb diets = short term success and long term messed up metabolism and probably a weight gain of more than when you started. Your body needs carbs and any diet that you cannot sustain as a lifestyle will only lead to failure and then some.

    The only way to lose weight quickly and keep it off is to eat enough of the right foods, exercise and drink lots and lots of water. Check out the Glycemic Index diet. Just tells you what kinds of foods are best for you body to keep your blood sugar constant and avoid cravings. No big secret about it and you will never be over hungry or feel deprived.

    I guess it depends on what you mean by "quickly." The Atkins diet (zero or very low carbs) does work, and works well. I lost 17 pounds in 1 month when I gave it a try. Is that quickly enough for you? :)

    Beware -- you will *seriously* start craving french fries, bread, fruit -- all of which are strictly no-no on a real no-carb diet. But fill yourself up with healthy low-fat proteins, and while you'll still crave carbs, at least you won't be hungry :)

    A zero carb diet is dangerous. You need carbs, not a ton of them, but you need them. Not having carbs can really hurt your system, and then when you start eating them again you will pile on the pounds faster than you lost them.

    Yes, you can lose weight quickly, but you will gain back twice as much as you lost when you reintroduce carbs.

    Yes, but it's unhealthy. Moderation is best.
