Want to win at weight loss? Good news or bad news first? In this case, they’re the same!
In a study published today in JAMA, a meta-analysis of over 48 unique randomized trials (that included over 7,000 individuals) showed that both low-fat and low-carbohydrate diets produced nearly the same results at 6 months. Weight loss differences between individual diets were minimal. The conclusion of the researchers: the practice of recommending any diet that a patient can adhere to can produce weight loss results.
