A new study has found that a diet rich in protein and low in carbs may lead to weight loss and improvements in blood sugar levels and blood pressure.
The study, which was published in the journal Diabetes, Obesity and Metabolism, involved 302 overweight or obese adults who were randomly assigned to one of three diets for 12 weeks.
One group followed a high-protein, low-carbohydrate diet; another group followed a high-protein, moderate-carbohydrate diet; and the third group followed a low-protein, high-carbohydrate diet.
All of the participants were instructed to eat fewer calories than they needed to maintain their weight.
At the end of the 12 weeks, those in the high-protein, low-carb group had lost more weight, on average, than those in the other two groups.
They also had greater decreases in blood sugar levels and blood pressure.
The study’s lead author, Dr. Mary C. Shea, said the findings suggest that a high-protein, low-carb diet may be a “useful strategy” for people who are trying to lose weight and improve their health.
However, she cautioned that the study was small and more research is needed to confirm the findings.
If you’re considering a high-protein, low-carb diet, it’s important to talk to your doctor first.
such a diet may not be suitable for everyone, and it’s important to make sure you’re getting enough nutrients from other sources.
A new diet report has been released and it’s getting a lot of attention. The report is from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey and it looks at what people are eating in the United States.
The report shows that the average American diet is high in calories, fat, sugar, and sodium. It also shows that many Americans are not eating enough fruits, vegetables, and whole grains.
The report is based on data from 2009-2010. The researchers used a nationally representative sample of adults. They used dietary recalls to assess the average intake of calories, nutrients, and food groups.
The report found that the average American diet has 2,000 calories. That’s more than what is recommended for most adults. The report also found that the average diet is high in fat, sugar, and sodium.
Many Americans are not meeting the recommendations for fruits, vegetables, and whole grains. For fruits, the recommendation is to eat 1.5 cups per day. For vegetables, the recommendation is to eat 2.5 cups per day. For whole grains, the recommendation is to eat 3 ounces per day.
The report also found that Americans are eating too many empty calories. Empty calories are calories from solid fats, alcohol, and added sugars. The report recommends that Americans limit their intake of empty calories to no more than 200 calories per day.
The report has been criticized by some who say that it’s too restrictive. Others say that the recommendations are unrealistic. What do you think?
