High Protein Weight Loss Diet Has Metabolic Benefits
Posted on: 06/22/2005
ADELAIDE, Australia--An energy-restricted, high-protein, low-fat diet appears to provide greater nutritional and metabolic benefits to overweight women than those observed with a high-carbohydrate diet, according to a study in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition (81, 6:1298-1306, 2005).
One hundred overweight women (body mass index of 28 to 38) were assigned to one of two dietary interventions--high protein or high carb--for 12 weeks in a parallel design. Weight loss was similar in both groups, as were low-density lipoprotein (LDL) and high-density lipoprotein (HDL) decreases.
In addition, bone turnover markers increased in both groups, and calcium excretion decreased. However, women on the high protein diet lost more fat mass, saw a greater decline in triacylglycerol concentrations and had significant increases in serum B12 levels.
