Low-Carb Diets Take the Cake


Low-carb and low fat diets both work well for weight loss, but low-carb is better for cholesterol, especially for increasing good cholesterol, or HDH (high-density lipoprotein), at almost twice the rate of low-fat diets. Results froma two-year study show the average weight loss was the same for both diets at 15 pounds, but the HDL had a 23% increase from low-carb dieting, whereas a 12% increase occurred from low-fat dieting. The study’s authors noted that the increase of good cholesterol from the low-carb diet was similar to that obtained by takings medicine.
