The case against carbohydrates gets stronger
« on: November 16, 2018, 1533 UTC »
Participants in the low (20%) carbohydrate group burned on average about 250 calories a day more than those in the high (60%) carbohydrate group, just as predicted by the carbohydrate-insulin model. Without intervention (that is, if we hadnít adjusted the amount of food to prevent weight change), that difference would produce substantial weight loss ó about 20 pounds after a few years. If a low-carbohydrate diet also curbs hunger and food intake (as other studies suggest it can), the effect could be even greater.

I'll add that 20% carbs is not even that low of a carbohydrate diet. I aim for 5% or less.
