    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.

    In this video clip, Michael Eades, MD, author of Protein Power and other low carb books, tells about the Anti-Coronary Club Trial that was done in the In this trial which was launched in the late-1950’s men were assigned to eat a Prudent Diet group which reduced saturated fat and increased polyunsaturated fat and reduced overall fat intake and compared the number of heart attacks and deaths to a control group.

    In this trial, men were assigned to eat a Prudent Diet which reduced saturated fat and increased polyunsaturated fat and reduced overall fat intake, and compared the number of heart attacks and deaths to a group of men in the control group who were not asked to change their diet.

    After some period of time there were
    26 total deaths in the Prudent Diet group
    versus only
    6 total deaths in the control group.

    DIET COMPOSITION

    People lost the same amount of weight (13.9 lbs) with 15% protein as 25% protein

    People assigned to eat diets with a different composition of protein (15% vs 25%), fat (20% vs 40%) and carbohydrates (35% to 65%), but the same number of calories, lost the same amount of weight and same amount of fat according to a recent study from researchers at Harvard University. The average weight loss was 13.9 lbs after six months which was similar in all the diet groups, with 9.2 lbs coming from body fat, and 4.6 lbs coming from lean body mass (muscle) "with no differences between 25% and 15% protein, 40% and 20% fat, or 65% and 35% carbohydrate."

    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

    LOW CARB VS MEDITERRANEAN VS LOW FAT

    Mediterranean Diet caused greater reduction in blood sugar than low-carb or low-fat: -33 vs +1 v +12

    A Mediterranean diet is better for reducing blood sugar levels in diabetics than a low-carbohydrate or low-fat diet according to a two-year study comparing a low-carbohydrate diet to a Mediterranean diet to a low-fat diet.


    Among the 36 diabetics who completed the study, those following a Mediterranean diet had the greatest reduction in blood sugar levels (-33 mg per deciliter) versus an increase of +1 mg per deciliter for those in the low-carbohydrate group and an increase of +12 mg per deciliter in the low-fat group.

    Comment: The lack of reduction in blood sugar in the low-carbohydrate group after two years is probably because they were not restricting carbohydrates as much as they did during the first year. At the end of the first year, blood sugar levels in the low-carbohydrate group had fallen by -18 mg per deciliter versus -23 mg per deciliter for the Mediterranean diet group.
