Are you considering a weight-loss program?  That can be confusing for anyone.  Some recommend fat restriction, while others recommend cutting the carbohydrates.  So which one is it?  A research team led by Dr. Kevin Hall of NIH’s National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK) conducted a study to determine the way the body responds to fat vs. carbohydrate restriction.  The findings appeared online on August 13, 2015, in the Journal Cell Metabolism.

Here is the latest from a research study conducted at the NIH.

  • In adults with obesity, decreasing dietary fat led to greater body fat loss, than cutting the same number of calories from carbohydrates!!!!

  • According to Dr. Hall “Compared to the reduced-fat diet, the reduced-carb diet was particularly effective at lowering insulin secretion and increasing fat burning, resulting in significant body fat loss.  But interestingly, study participants lost even more body fat during the fat-restricted diet, as it resulted in a greater imbalance between the fat eaten and fat burned,”

Summary:

  1. Cutting Fat is better then cutting carbs!
  2. Cutting carbs helps to burn more fat!
