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-FAT VS LOW-CARB

One year weight loss on low-fat vs low-carb diet: 11.7 lbs vs 13.2 lbs

After one year, overweight people on a low-fat diet lost a similar amount of weight as those on a low-carbohydrate diet (11.7 lbs vs 13.2 lbs) according to a study from researchers at Stanford University School of Medicine in Stanford, California, USA.

“In this 12-month weight loss diet study, there was no significant difference in weight change between a healthy low-fat diet vs a healthy low-carbohydrate diet, and neither genotype pattern nor baseline insulin secretion was associated with the dietary effects on weight loss,” the authors of the study concluded.

“In the context of these 2 common weight loss diet approaches, neither of the 2 hypothesized predisposing factors was helpful in identifying which diet was better for whom.”

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
  • 30 mg per deciliter drop in triglyceride levels
  • 0.2% drop in glycated haemoglobin
  • 1.7 mg per deciliter decrease in C-reactive protein
  • 2.5 inch decrease in waist circumference
  • 1.7 mg per deciliter increase in HDL levels

“Low-density lipoprotein [LDL] cholesterol and creatinine did not change significantly, whereas limited data exist concerning plasma uric acid,” the paper noted.

This according to a analysis of 17 low-carbohydrate studies which involved a total of 1,141 obese patients.

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. Typically, nine or ten pounds are lost in the first six months.

People lost twice as much weight after three months and six months on a high-protein, low-carb diet than a low-fat, high-carbohydrate diet, but the difference in weight loss was not significantly different after one year according to the first randomized, controlled trial of a low-carb diet that was published in The New England Journal of Medicine.

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
