Low-fat diet the best way to lose weight

Curated by

 

According to the BBC , recent research shows that people who cut down their fat intake lost the most weight compared to folks who only reduced carbohydrate intake. The results, published in the journal Cell Metabolism, reveal that lowering fat intake resulted in 80 percent more weight loss than a diet that just dropped the carbs. Fewer carbohydrates lead to lower insulin levels, which in turn releases fat from the body’s reserves.

 

 

  • Over a period of two weeks, they tried diets that lowered their calorie intake by 33 percent, either by reducing intake of carbohydrates or fats.
  • The study all but refutes claims that low-carb diets are the way to lose weight, but the researchers reminded readers that the best way to lose weight is to stick with a diet plan that works for you.
  • Both diets were analyzed by the National Institutes of Health, who stressed that the best diet overall is whichever one people can follow on a regular basis.
