Long-term effects of a very-low-carbohydrate weight loss diet compared with an isocaloric low-fat diet after 12 mo.
Interesting because it looks at a very low carb diet: 4%, 35%, and 61% of energy as carbohydrate, protein, and fat, respectively. Conclusion: The LC diet may offer clinical benefits to obese persons with insulin resistance.
And the second one:
Low-carbohydrate diet disrupts the association between insulin resistance and weight gain.
The adoption of LCD promotes a unique metabolic state that prevents insulin resistance, even in guinea pigs that gained more weight. The association between weight gain and insulin resistance seems to be dependent on high carbohydrate intake.
That is an interesting conclusion!
