Dietary carbohydrate restriction improves metabolic syndrome independent of weight loss


Journal: JCI Insight

Publication Date: 06/2019

 Summary: Obese subjects cycled through 4 weeks each of a low, medium and high carb diet. Consistent with the perspective that MetS is a pathologic state that manifests as dietary carbohydrate intolerance, these results show that compared with eucaloric high-carbohydrate intake, LC/high-fat diets benefit MetS independent of whole-body or fat mass.
