'Slow Carbs' and the Truth About Low-Carb Diets
Low-Carb Diet Versus Low-Fat Diet: Which Is Better?
- According to Dr. Meir Stampfer, a professor of epidemiology and nutrition at the Harvard School of Public Health, “The low-carb diet was the clear winner in providing the most weight loss.” He based his conclusion on a study conducted at the Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston and Ben Gurion University where 322 obese patients were randomly assigned to low-fat, low-carb and Mediterranean diet. After two years, the results showed that the low-carb dieters peeled off the most pounds, averaging 12.1 pounds. That was revealed in an interview with ABC News in July 2008.
- n the August issue of Harvard Health Letter, results from two studies revealed another twist: with regards to weight loss, low-carb and low-fat diets end up in a tie after one year. Low-carb scored higher weight loss points in the beginning: dieters lose weight faster during the first six months but regain pounds in the next six months. Dieters in the low-fat lose weight steadily and eventually catch up. The final score: There is no clear winner.
- A report by WebMd as of March 2010, unveiled a new winner—low-fat diet may be best for long-term weight loss and to maintain a healthy weight. In the study, 132 obese people who weighed an average of 289 pounds before being put on either a low-carb or low-fat diet. After six months, the low-carb group experienced the most weight loss but a year later, there was no significant difference between the two groups. However, when these dieters were tracked three years after the study and two years after the diet ended, the low-fat group came out top—they weighed an average of 9.5 pounds less before the diet as opposed to the low-carb group who weighed an average of 4.9 pounds less).
Researcher, Marion L. Vetter, MD, RD of the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania, explains in the Annals of Internal Medicine, ”Although participants in the low-carbohydrate group lost more weight at 12 months, they regained more weight during the next 24 months.
