    VEGETABLE-BASED, LOW-CARBOHYDRATE DIET

    High-vegetable-based, low-carbohydrate diet associated with 20% lower risk of death over 20 years

    The one-tenth of people with the highest score for consuming a vegetable-based, low-carbohydrate diet were 20% less likely to die during a 20-26 year follow-up when compared to the one-tenth of people with the lowest score for consuming this type of diet according to a study from researchers at the Harvard School of Public Health in Boston, Massachusetts, USA.

    LOW-CARB DIET vs HIGH-CARB DIET

    People on a low-fat, high-carb diet had less anxiety and depression than those on low-carb diet

    People randomly assigned to either a low-fat, high-carbohydrate diet for one year had lower scores for anxiety and depression than people who were randomly assigned to a high-fat, low-carbohydrate diet according to a 2009 study from Australia.

    Both groups lost an average of 30 lbs after one year.

    “In conclusion, we found that despite similar weight loss after energy-restricted [high-fat, low-carb] and [low-fat, high-carb] diets for 12 months and rapid improvements in mood during the first 8 weeks with both diets, over the long term many of the benefits regressed in the [high-fat, low-carb] diet group such that participants on the [low-fat, high-carb] diet achieved better outcomes,” the authors of the study concluded.

    LOW-CARB DIETS

    Low-carbohydrate diets reduced blood pressure, blood sugar, insulin, triglycerides, increased HDL

    Weight loss on a low-carbohydrate diet was associated with improvements in a number of cardiovascular risk factors including:

    • 5 mm Hg decrease in systolic blood pressure
    • 3 mm Hg decrease in diastolic blood pressure
    • 1 mg per deciliter drop in fasting blood sugar
    • 2.2 micro IU per millileter drop in fasting insulin

    BOOK - WHY WE GET FAT

    The idea that exercise causes weight loss due to nutritionist Jean Mayer, notes Gary Taubes

    "The dubious credit for why we came to believe otherwise goes almost exclusively to one man, Jean Mayer, who began his professional career at Harvard in 1950, proceeded to become the most influential nutritionist in the United States, and then, for sixteen years, served as president of Tufts University (where there is now a Jean Mayer USDA Human Nutrition Research Center on Aging)," writes Gary Taubes in his excellent book Why We Get Fat and What To Do About It.

    "Prescribing low-calorie diets for obese and overweight patients, according to a 2007 review from Tufts University, leads, at best, to "modest weight losses" that are "transient"- that is, temporary.

They argued, as I will, that it is absurd to think about obesity as caused by overeating, because anything that makes people grow -- whether in height or in weight, in muscle or in fat -- will make them overeat," Gary Taubes writes in his excellent book Why We Get Fat and What To Do About It.

    LOW CARB DIET

    Low-carb diet causes more better results after one-year than low-fat: 11 lbs vs 7 lbs

    "Participants on a low-carbohydrate diet had more favorable overall outcomes at one-year than did those on a conventional [low-fat] diet," concludes a new study conducted at the Philadelphia Veterans Affairs Medical Center. People who were assigned to follow a low-carb diet maintained a weight loss of 11.2 pounds after one-year compared to a weight loss of 6.8 pounds for people who were assigned to follow a low-fat diet. The difference in weight loss between the groups was not statistically significant, however there still was an 80 percent chance that this difference in weight loss was due to the diet. Some articles have concluded that this study shows that low-carb diets are no better than low-fat diets, however this was not the conclusion of the study. Read the entire article | Email this article
