High Protein Diet

Along with the Low-Carb vs Low-Fat Diet study is another paper (also in published Obesity) on the effect of a high-protein vs high-carbohydrate diet (both low fat) on weight loss maintenance.

Following a 6 week energy restricted diet, subject were placed on a 12-week weight maintenance plan of either high protein or high carbohydrates.

The study shows that low-fat, high protein weight maintenance diets are more effective for weight control than low-fat, high carbohydrate diets.

Here is the abstract: High-protein vs high-carbohydrate diet for weight maintenance
