Weight Loss and A Increased Protein and Reduced CHO/Protein Ratio Diet

In a study of 24 adult women, >15% above ideal body weight, to test the hypothesis that a moderate increase in dietary protein with a corresponding reduction of carbohydrates (CHO) stabilizes fasting and postprandial blood glucose and insulin during weight loss, were assigned to either a Protein Group [protein: 1.6 g/(kg. d); CHO <40% of energy] or CHO Group [protein: 0.8 g/(kg. d); CHO >55%] by Department of Food Science and Human Nutrition, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, (1) found that consumption of a diet with increased protein and a reduced CHO/protein ratio stabilizes blood glucose during nonabsorptive periods and reduces the postprandial insulin response.
