DNA diet tests can not prophesy who will lose more weight

In dieting low-fat or low-carb are the same study

"Unfortunately, it still remains unclear which diet is the best for weight loss, and who the true demons really are ... carbs or fat", she says.

Diets are definitely not one-size-fits-all, as what works for one person may not prove successful for someone else. "It's because we're all very different, and we're just starting to understand the reasons for this diversity".

"In any weight loss diets, adherence to the diet and the overall quality of the diet are probably more important than any other factors", said Hu.

Gardner and his team of researchers assessed 609 overweight adults across the United Kingdom with ages ranging from 18 to 50 years over a period of 12 months. The theory is that people whose bodies respond in a more extreme way to a giant slug of sweetness might do better on a low-carb diet. The participants were initially instructed to reduce their total fat or carbohydrate intake to 20 g/day during the first 8 weeks of intervention, and then slowly added back either fat or carbs into their diet, not surpassing the lowest level of sustainable intake each participant could individually maintain.

She says: "There are pros and cons of both low carb and low fat diets but the fundamental take home message should focus on the commonalties of the two diets, i.e. what the participants were advised to eat, aside from restricting either carbs or fat".

Kratom - the opioid withdrawal plant - linked to salmonella in 20 states
According to an official statement released by the FDA, kratom may not appear as an ingredient on those product labels. But she is also an advocate for stronger consumer-protection rules in regard to the substance.

"Over one year, the low-fat group lost 12 pounds on average", he tells EndocrineWeb, and "group following the low carb diet lost about 13 pounds".

He added that the best way to lose weight is to eat less sugar, consume more vegetables, and go for whole food, whether that is a wheatberry salad or grass-fed beef.

But contrary to expectations, individuals randomized to a diet favored by their genotype did not lose more weight than those assigned to the mismatched diet.

"By becoming engrossed in counting calories and restricting our food intake, which is often what a diet requires us to do, it means becoming more and more confused in regards to what it means to be healthy".

Besides comparing low fat and low carb eating plans for weight loss, Dr. Gardner and his colleagues also looked at whether levels of insulin production or genetic factors affected individual weight loss and made one diet better than another among those trying to lose weight, as some experts have suggested.

New Zealand cleans up after Cyclone Gita devastation
In New Zealand , a state of emergency has been declared in Christchurch and two other districts as cyclone Gita hit the country. The supplies went to the clinic in Golden Bay, which was running short because the storm has cut the Takaka Hill Road.

For the study, researchers led by Gardner recruited 609 men and women between the ages of 18 and 50 and placed them into one of two dietary groups: low-carbohydrate or low-fat.

'On both sides, we heard from people who had lost the most weight that we had helped them change their relationship to food, and that now they were more thoughtful about how they ate, ' said Gardner.

What they did find, though, was that cutting down on sugar and refined flower while upping your intake of vegetables and wholefoods would lead to weight loss.

Within the diet groups, some lost more weight than others, with a range of weight loss from losing 30kg (4 stone 10lbs) to gaining 10kg (1 stone 8lbs). "But let's cut to the chase: We didn't replicate that study, we didn't even come close". "I feel like we owe it to Americans to be smarter than to just say 'eat less.' I still think there is an opportunity to discover some personalization to it - now we just need to work on tying the pieces together".
