Is a low-fat diet or a low-carb diet more effective for weight loss? The Public Health Collaboration has made a summary of randomized controlled studies that test this. Which diet do you think was the best for weight loss?
Here are the results of the summary:
- In 26 studies, the low-carb group showed statistically significantly greater weight loss.
- The number of studies won by low fat? ZERO.
In other words, when it comes to low carb vs. low fat for weight loss, the score is 26 – 0.
It seems like we have an answer to the question.
