Posted by Gregory Miller, PhD, FACN @ 9:57 AM


ScienceDaily reports on a new study examining weight loss on a low carbohydrate versus a low-fat diet combined with exercise. Both groups lost weight; however, the low carbohydrate group lost weight faster. Although the low carbohydrate diet was higher in fat, measures of cardiovascular health were not altered by the diet. This work provides additional data indicating that a low carbohydrate, higher fat diet will not negatively affect heart disease risk.
