Weight Loss Diet Study: Low Carb vs. Low Fat and Insulin Resistance

.

 

 

 

The primary objective of this study is to determine if weight loss success can be increased if the dietary approach (Low Carb vs. Low Fat) is appropriately matched to an individual’s insulin resistance status. Previous studies have observed that insulin resistant adults have more success in losing weight with Low Carb diets, in contrast to insulin sensitive adults who have either more success or comparable success with the Low Fat diets.
