Is a fat free diet or a low fat diet or a full fat diet best for fat burning?

== == Never ever attempt a fat free diet or any diet recommending that you get less than 10% of your calories from fat. You could cause yourself serious harm, as fat is needed to absorb vitamins A, D, E and K as well as several other important bodily functions.

Both low fat and low carb diets are effective in burning fat, with the low carb diet being slightly more effective. This is because carbohydrates cause insulin to be released, which suppresses a hormone that allows for fat mobilization. Also, in a low carbohydrate or low calorie diet, the body must break down fat tissue which leads to the production of ketones. If they accumulate they are eliminated from the body via the urine, meaning that your body is actually "peeing out" excess calories. One reason why the low carb diet is popular is that it generally doesn't require you to be as hungry while dieting, but rebound is very common on this diet as well.
