Low-Carb Beats Low-Fat For Short-Term Weight Loss, Study Concludes

Filed under: Study — @ March 22, 2006

Researchers at the University of Cincinnati conducted a four-month study that found obese women on a low-carb diet lost more weight and body fat than obese women on a low-fat diet.

The results of this study appear in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism.

Lead researcher Dr. Bonnie J. Brehm was confused about why there was such a noticable difference in weight loss when the subjects ate the same number of calories and expended similar amounts of energy.

She even surmised that the low-fat diet group must have been “underreporting” that amount of food they ate.

bq. Hmmm. Could it be those high-carb, low-fat diets were making the study participants in that group HUNGRIER?! I just can’t imagine that ever happening. LOL!
