Weight Loss and Carbohydrate-Restricted Diets High in Either Monounsaturated Fat or Protein

In a randomized study of 72 overweight and obese volunteers with the BWI in kg/m(2)=:33.8 +/- 0.9, and insulin concentrations >12 mU/L received either a low-fat, high-protein (LF-HP) diet (29 +/- 1% fat, 34 +/- 0.8% protein) or a high-fat, standard-protein (HF-SP) diet (45 +/- 0.6% fat, 18 +/- 0.3% protein) during 12 wk of energy restriction (6 +/- 0.1 MJ/d) and 4 wk of energy balance (7.4 +/- 0.3 MJ/d) conducted by Department of Medicine, University of Adelaide, in Australia (1), found that glucose and insulin responses to test meals improved after weight loss (P < 0.001) with no significant diet effect. Bone turnover, inflammation, and calcium excretion did not change significantly.
