Weight Loss at a Cost: Implications of High-Protein, Low- Carbohydrate Diets.
Gabel, Kathe A.; Lund, Robin J.
Journal of Physical Education, Recreation & Dance, v73 n2 p18-21 Feb 2002
Addresses three claims of high-protein, low-carbohydrate diets: weight loss is attributed to the composition of the diet; insulin promotes the storage of fat, thereby, by limiting carbohydrates, dieters will decrease levels of insulin and body fat; and weight loss is the result of fat loss. The paper examines relevant scientific reports and notes possible adverse effects. (SM)
