Weight Loss is Complex.
We Did the Research So You Don't Have To.

24 Week Low Carb/High Fat Study

Below is a 24-week study on a low carb high fat diet vs. a low-fat diet among adults. 120 adults participated. Only 57% of the low-fat diet participants finished as opposed to 76% in the low carb high fat diet. The low carb high fat diet participants experienced a greater weight loss than low fat participants (-12.9% vs -6.7%). Patients lost 20.7 lbs of fat mass on a low carb high fat diet vs. 10.58 lbs on a low-fat diet. What does this mean? It is more likely for people to sustain a low carb high fat diet than a low-fat diet and you can lose almost twice the amount of fat in the same amount of time.

Obese Women on Low Carb/High Fat Diet Lost More Than on a Calorie Restricted Diet

Below is a study that took 42 obese women and placed them on a 6-month low carb/high fat diet vs. a calorie restricted diet with 30% of calories from fat. The low carb diet group lost 18 lbs in 6 months and had no evidence of increased cardiovascular risk factors! The calorie restricted diet only lost 8.6 lbs in 6 months. Mean levels of blood pressure, lipids, fasting glucose, and insulin were within normal ranges in both groups at baseline. However, all of these parameters improved upon completion of the study.

What does this mean? If you want to lose more fat and lose it faster, choose a low carb/high fat diet!

Have You Ever Wondered- Doesn’t Eating Fat Increase LDL, Cholesterol, and risks of heart Disease?

This study compares the National Cholesterol Education Program Diet with a diet of low carb, high protein, and high unsaturated fat to determine the effects on hypertension, dyslipidemia, and cardiovascular risk factors. 29 women and 31 men with a mean age of 44 years were randomly selected. The results showed significant weight loss in the MLC diet (low carb, high fat) over the NCEP diet averaging 13.6 lbs lost vs. 7.5 lbs lost. There were significant changes in all lipid levels within the MLC group but not within the NCEP group. Other results showed a significant decrease of waist-to-hip ration within the MLC group averaging .009.
