More women who were instructed to follow a high-protein diet returned after one year for a follow-up (93 percent) than those who were instructed to follow a high-fat, low-carbohydrate diet (77 percent) or those who were instructed to follow a high-carbohydrate, low-fat diet (75%) according to a recent study. This suggests that people may find it easier and more effective to follow instructions to eat a high-protein diet than a high-fat or high-carbohydrate diet. REFERENCE
