Beneficial effects of ketogenic diet in obese diabetic subjects

URL: https://link.springer.com/article/10.1007%2Fs11010-007-9448-z Journal: Molecular and Cellular Biochemistry Publication Date: 04/2007 Summary: Obesity is closely linked to the incidence of type II diabetes. It is found that effective management of body weight and changes to nutritional habits especially with regard to the carbohydrate content and glycemic index of the diet have beneficial effects in obese subjects with glucose …

The effect of a low-carbohydrate, ketogenic diet on nonalcoholic fatty liver disease: a pilot study

URL: https://link.springer.com/article/10.1007%2Fs10620-006-9433-5 Journal: Digestive Diseases and Sciences Publication Date: 02/2007 Summary: Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease is an increasingly common condition that may progress to hepatic cirrhosis. This pilot study evaluated the effects of a low-carbohydrate, ketogenic diet on obesity-associated fatty liver disease. Five patients with a mean body mass index of 36.4 kg/m2 and biopsy evidence of …

Effects of a high-protein ketogenic diet on hunger, appetite, and weight loss in obese men feeding ad libitum

URL: https://academic.oup.com/ajcn/article/87/1/44/4633256 Journal: American Journal of Clinical Nutrition Publication Date: 01/2008 Summary: Altering the macronutrient composition of the diet influences hunger and satiety. Studies have compared high- and low-protein diets, but there are few data on carbohydrate content and ketosis on motivation to eat and ad libitum intake. We aimed to compare the hunger, appetite, and weight-loss …

The effect of a low-carbohydrate, ketogenic diet versus a low-glycemic index diet on glycemic control in type 2 diabetes mellitus

URL: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2633336/ Journal: Nutrition and Metabolism Publication Date: 12/2008 Summary: Dietary carbohydrate is the major determinant of postprandial glucose levels, and several clinical studies have shown that low-carbohydrate diets improve glycemic control. In this study, we tested the hypothesis that a diet lower in carbohydrate would lead to greater improvement in glycemic control over a 24-week …

Comparison of Low Fat and Low Carbohydrate Diets on Circulating Fatty Acid Composition and Markers of Inflammation

URL: https://link.springer.com/article/10.1007/s11745-007-3132-7 Journal: Lipids Publication Date: 11/2007 Summary: Abnormal distribution of plasma fatty acids and increased inflammation are prominent features of metabolic syndrome. We tested whether these components of metabolic syndrome, like dyslipidemia and glycemia, are responsive to carbohydrate restriction. Overweight men and women with atherogenic dyslipidemia consumed ad libitum diets very low in carbohydrate (VLCKD) …

Dietary carbohydrate restriction induces a unique metabolic state positively affecting atherogenic dyslipidemia, fatty acid partitioning, and metabolic syndrome

URL: https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/abs/pii/S0163782708000167?via%3Dihub Journal: Progress in Lipids Research Publication Date: 09/2008 Summary: Abnormal fatty acid metabolism and dyslipidemia play an intimate role in the pathogenesis of metabolic syndrome and cardiovascular diseases. The availability of glucose and insulin predominate as upstream regulatory elements that operate through a collection of transcription factors to partition lipids toward anabolic pathways. The …

Carbohydrate restriction as the default treatment for type 2 diabetes and metabolic syndrome

URL: https://www.tandfonline.com/doi/abs/10.1080/14017430802014838?journalCode=icdv20 Journal: Scandinavian Cardiovascular Journal Publication Date: 02/2008 Summary: Dietary carbohydrate restriction in the treatment of diabetes and metabolic syndrome is based on an underlying principle of control of insulin secretion and the theory that insulin resistance is a response to chronic hyperglycemia and hyperinsulinemia. As such, the theory is intuitive and has substantial experimental …

Carbohydrate Restriction has a More Favorable Impact on the Metabolic Syndrome than a Low Fat Diet

URL: https://link.springer.com/article/10.1007/s11745-008-3274-2 Journal: Lipids Publication Date: 12/2008 Summary: We recently proposed that the biological markers improved by carbohydrate restriction were precisely those that define the metabolic syndrome (MetS), and that the common thread was regulation of insulin as a control element. We specifically tested the idea with a 12-week study comparing two hypocaloric diets (~1,500 kcal): a …

Effects of a low carbohydrate weight loss diet on exercise capacity and tolerance in obese subjects.

URL: https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/full/10.1038/oby.2009.134 Journal: Obesity Publication Date: 09/2012 Summary: Dietary restriction and increased physical activity are recommended for obesity treatment. Very low carbohydrate diets are used to promote weight loss, but their effects on physical function and exercise tolerance in overweight and obese individuals are largely unknown. The aim of this study was to compare the effects …

Systematic review of randomized controlled trials of low‐carbohydrate vs. low‐fat/low‐calorie diets in the management of obesity and its comorbidities

URL: https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/full/10.1111/j.1467-789X.2008.00518.x Journal: Obesity Reviews Publication Date: 12/2008 Summary: There are few studies comparing the effects of low‐carbohydrate/high‐protein diets with low‐fat/high‐carbohydrate diets for obesity and cardiovascular disease risk. This systematic review focuses on randomized controlled trials of low‐carbohydrate diets compared with low‐fat/low‐calorie diets. Studies conducted in adult populations with mean or median body mass index of …
