Low-carb, low-fat in dead heat after one year

Filed under: Study — Tags: — @ July 30, 2004

Even though people drop pounds faster on low-carb diets out of the gate, results from two studies summarized in the August issue of the Harvard Health Letter show that with regards to weight loss, low-carb and low-fat diets end up in a statistical tie after a year.

The first study says that low-carb dieters jumped ahead of their low-fat counterparts during the first six months, only to regain pounds in the next six. In the second study, the low-carb group kept off the pounds, but the low-fat group caught up with them by continuing to lose weight.
