A Low-Carb Diet is More Effective in Reducing Body Weight Than Healthy Eating in Both Diabetic and Non-Diabetic Subjects
Details: 13 diabetic and 13 non-diabetic individuals were randomized to a low-carb diet or a “healthy eating” diet that followed the Diabetes UK recommendations (a calorie restricted, low-fat diet). Study went on for 3 months.
Weight Loss: The low-carb group lost 6.9 kg (15.2 lbs), compared to 2.1 kg (4.6 lbs) in the low-fat group.
Conclusion: The low-carb group lost more weight (about 3 times as much). There was no difference in any other marker between groups.
