Hello kelseydiane31
I don't know if it would work, I guess it all depends on your lifestyle and body type and most of all your triggers. What do you mean by low-fat? Is it excluding fat or just eating things that have "low-fat" sign on them?
I am on a low fat diet but not by choice and it is not fun. I'm unable to digest fat (among other things) and I take digestive enzymes that contain lipase with my main meals-without them I literaly cannot eat anything. Fat makes my symptoms flare up in a painful way but that does not mean they go away if I avoid it. My diet is extremely restricted in variety and size and as a result I am underweight. At the moment I have 54,7 kg(120,6 lbs) and I'm 176cm ( 5,77 ft)..I have only 9,8 grams of body fat and I'm still loosing weight. We are not meant to live only on protein and we need fat so that our bodies can function. There are vitamins that can only be stored in fat so thread carefuly if you decide to try this diet and make sure it is not for long periods ot time.
Let us know how it goes!

To help control your fat, cholesterol, carbs and calories, eat mostly green foods such as vegetables, fruits and whole grains, and moderate amounts of lean and low-fat, animal-based foods such as meat and dairy products.
Avoid consumption of fatty and oily foods, butter, stick margarine, shortening, lard, palm and coconut oils and chocolate.
