Weight Loss and A Reduced Ratio of Dietary Carbohydrate to Protein
According to the study of 24 women, ages between 45 to 56 with BMI>26 kg/m(2), in examining the efficacy of two weight loss diets with modified CHO/protein ratios to change body composition and blood lipids in adult women were assigned to either a CHO Group consuming a diet with a CHO/protein ratio of 3.5 (68 g protein/d) or a Protein Group with a ratio of 1.4 (125 g protein/d). conducted by Department of Food Science and Human Nutrition, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (1), found that women in the CHO Group had higher insulin responses to meals and postprandial hypoglycemia, whereas women in the Protein Group reported greater satiety. This study demonstrates that increasing the proportion of protein to carbohydrate in the diet of adult women has positive effects on body composition, blood lipids, glucose homeostasis and satiety during weight loss.
