    Although "dietary compliance [after one-year] was poor in all groups, women maintain more of their weight loss with a high-protein, low-carbohydrate diet than a high-fat, low-carbohydrate diet or a low-fat, high-carbohydrate, high-fiber diet according to a recent study from researchers at the Edgar National Centre for Diabetes Research in Dunedin, New Zealand. Weight Maintenance

    Weight Maintenance with high-protein vs high-fat vs high-carbohydrate : 14.5 lbs vs 12.1 lbs vs 9.7 lbs

    Those on a high-protein, low-carbohydrate diet maintained a weight loss of 14.5 pounds after one-year compared to 12.1 pounds for those on a high-fat, low-carbohydrate diet versus 9.7 pounds for those on a low-fat, high-carbohydrate, high-fiber diet.

    This represented a weight loss maintenance of 7 percent for the high-protein group, 5.6 percent for the high-fat group, and 4.5 percent for the high-carbohydrate group.

    This was following a six-month weight loss of 17.6 pounds or 8.5 percent of their body weight for those instructed to eat a high-protein diet versus 18.7 pounds or 8.7 percent of their body weight for those instructed to eat a high-fat, low-carbohydrate diet versus 13 pounds or 6 percent of their body weight for those instructed to eat a high-carbohydrate, low-fat diet.
