Fantastic New Study!


I want to highlight the results of a well designed study looking at overweight children using a low carb diet (also known as a ketogenic diet) . The randomized controlled study, which took place in Greece, included 58 patients who were followed over the course of 6 months. Half of the patients were placed on the low carb diet and half were placed on a low fat, calorie restricted diet. In addition to weight loss, metabolic indices were followed. It should come as no surprise as to which group came out healthier (and also less hungry!) We can add this to the growing body of evidence which clearly concludes low carb to be a much healthier and sustainable lifestyle change for the increasing number of overweight/obese children in our society. I continue to work with these families in my office – they are as excited and motivated as ever!
