Obese children and low-carb diets
I thought this story was interesting enough to share, Obese kids have hard time sticking to low-carb diet:
“For the new study, researchers randomly assigned 100 obese 7- to 12-year-olds to one of three eating plans: one that followed the conventional wisdom of portion control; a low-carb diet; or a reduced glycemic load plan that cut down on certain carbs that typically cause surges in blood sugar…
“Over one year, all three plans worked equally well in controlling kids’ weight gain. The difference, researchers found, was that the low-carb plan was tough to stick with.
“…kids in all three diet groups ended up with healthier cholesterol levels.”
