Washington: Struggling to shed the flab? Here`s an advice -- cut down on carbohydrates to reduce body fat, say researchers.
The moderately carb-restricted diet contained foods that had a relatively low glycemic index, a measure of the extent to which the food raises blood glucose levels.This diet consisted of 43 percent calories from carbohydrates and 39 percent calories from fat, whereas the standard diet contained 55 percent of calories from carbohydrates and 27 percent from fat. Protein made up the other 18 per cent of each diet.The moderately carb-restricted diet promoted a 4 percent greater loss of total body fat, Gower said."For individuals willing to go on a weight-loss diet, a modest reduction in carbohydrate-containing foods may help them preferentially lose fat, rather than lean tissue. The moderately reduced carbohydrate diet allows a variety of foods to meet personal preferences," she said. PTI
