Low Carb Approach is Superior
It all boils down to this, which diet is best for weight loss? Two new studies offer ammunition for those who say the popular low carb approach is superior and for those who say all diets are pretty much the same.
Some experts say the best diet for you may be one you can stick to longest and adapt in the healthiest way.
In the first study, published in the Annals of Internal Medicine, 148 obese adults were put on either low fat or low carb diets.
The low fat dieters tried especially to limit saturated fat, the kind found in meat, whole milk and butter. The low carb dieters were told to go ahead and eat more fat and protein, but to cut back on white bread, sugary cereals and other high carb fare.
Results after a year: The low carb group lost an extra 8 pounds.
