Research Behind Low-Carb Diets
Several studies show a link between weight loss and low-carbohydrate diets compared to conventional calorie-restricted diets and low-fat diets. Results of a study published in the New England Journal of Medicine in 2003 showed that more weight loss occurred in the low-carb group in a randomized trial. Another study published in Obesity in 2007 showed that overweight individuals following a low-carb diet lost almost twice as much weight as those following a low-fat diet for six months. Those who were low-carbing also experienced less hunger. Research shows that low-carb diets may, in fact, be more beneficial than other diet programs.
