The idea that fewer carbs is usually more effective for weight loss and type 2 diabetes reversal is mainly based on the consistent experience of experienced practitioners, and stories from people trying different levels of carb restriction [weak evidence]
The only intervention study – to our knowledge – that compared different levels of carb restriction was a small trial that found trends towards greater weight loss and greater improvements in cardiometabolic risk factors as carb intake went lower.
The lower the carb intake, the more glycemic control appears to improve:
