Cut Carbs Or Cut Fat? Study Helps To End The Diet Debate!

August 14, 2015 2 min read

Nothing is more confusing in the world of dieting than the debate over whether carbs are the culprit causing you to put on weight or whether fat is the macronutrient responsible. So who's to blame? Metabolism researcher Kevin Hall conducted a study to find out. He had 19 overweight patients stay in a secure facility on two separate occasions. During their stays, their food intake was very closely monitored along with their workout routine. Each time, the patients had one of the two components restricted from their diet - either carbohydrates or fat. The analysis of the study found something surprising. While patients who ate a reduced fat diet lost more weight, when put side by side the results from both diets weren't substantially different. carbs Cutting 800 calories from carbs per day, coupled with one hour of exercise, had the patients shedding a daily average of 53 grams of body fat. Cutting 800 calories from fat per day along with exercise resulted in 89 grams of body fat being lost each day. It sounds like fat is the clear winner, but this is really a difference of only 3 ounces. cut fat "If you cut calories, every diet works. The thing that is most important is to find a plan that works for you." explains Madelyn Fernstrom, health and nutrition expert at NBC news. "People need to worry less about the specifics of the macronutrients — is it high or low fat— as long as it is balanced." What are your thoughts on the study? What type of diet plan has worked best for you? Source: Today Do you follow us on Instagram?

Fast, Express Shipping.

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. While health and wellness companies are essential services, there is simply an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as individuals and hospitals need more supplies than ever before. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-5 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. You will receive the tools you need to stay safe and strong at home through this difficult time. Thanks for your support and understanding.
