    People lost as much weight with a high-fat diet as a low-fat, high-protein diet according to a study from the University of Adelaide in Adelaide, Australia. Subjects: 57 overweight and obese women

    The average weight loss after four months was 22.4 pounds in the group of women assigned to eat a 1400 calorie per day high-fat, standard-protein diet containing 45 percent fat and 18 percent protein compare to 21.3 pounds for those eating a 1400 calorie per day low-fat, high-protein diet containing 29 percent fat and 34 percent protein.

    Diet: 1400 calories per day for 3 months, 1800 calories per day for one month

    Both groups were instructed to eat a diet containing 1400 calories per day for the first three months followed by 1800 calories per day for the last month.

    Less hunger in high protein group

    The high-protein group reported less hunger.

    Subjects: 57 overweight and obese women

    The study included 57 overweight and obese women with an average body mass index (BMI) of 33.8.

    The key finding is: the high-protein group reported less hunger. With protein providing glucagon to balance insulin levels it would be a much easier diet to comply with.
