Friday, March 07, 2008 6:12 am Email this article
People on a calorie-reduced diet who consumed low glycemic index foods lost more weight than those eating high glycemic index foods. Those in the low glycemic index group lost an average of 7.5 percent of their body weight in two months versus 5.3 percent for those in the high glycemic index group. Subjects
Subjects : 32 people, BMI 32.5
The study involved 32 people with an average body mass index ( BMI ) of 32.5 ( obese ).
Comment : Other studies have not been very impressive
Other studies that have instructed people to consume a low glycemic index diet have not shown much of a difference in people’s weight compared to those eating higher glycemic index foods, although the previous studies I’ve seen have not restricted calories.
