A big mistake that a lot of people make when they’re trying to lose weight is cutting carbs.
The reason people make this mistake is simple: it works… or at least, it does for the first week.
You see, your body needs carbohydrates for fuel. When it doesn’t have this fuel it turns to your body’s energy stores. And since it’s easier to get energy by breaking down muscle rather than fat, it’s only a matter of time before your body starts converting your biceps for energy.
