Which Diet is Best?
The one that you can stick with long term!
While different diets have different health benefits, a study published in the New England Journal of Medicine found that no diet is better than the other for weight loss, especially when it comes to maintaining that weight loss. You could go on any of the diets below and the study suggests that all will be successful, as long as you’re eating in a calorie deficit, or balance with your daily expenditure (in maintenance).
The results of the study were based on findings of 811 overweight and obese adults who were asked to try one of the following four diets:
Low-fat average protein
20% fat, 15% protein and 65% carbohydrates
Low-fat high protein
20% fat, 25% protein and 55% carbohydrates
High-fat average protein
40% fat, 15% protein and 45% carbohydrates
High-fat high protein
40% fat, 25% protein and 35% carbohydrates
All diets had the same calorie reduction goals. Participants on all of the diets lost an average of 13 pounds in six months and maintained a 9 pound loss after two years.
“This provides people who need to lose weight with flexibility to choose an approach that they’re most likely to sustain – one that is most suited to their personal preferences and health needs.” Says Dr Elizabeth G Nabel, director of the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute (NHLBI), the funders of the study.
