RIP IT OUT OF THEIR HANDS! New Study Reveals NIGHTMARE Effect of Heavy Screen Time on Young Brains



A new study figured out if you should try a low-fat or low-carb diet

  • A study from the Stanford University School of Medicine tried to answer the question of which diet is better: or .
  • Overall, those on the healthy low-fat diet lost an average of 11.68 lbs and those on the healthy low-carb diet lost an average of 13.22 lbs.
  • The researchers revealed that the difference did not prove one was necessarily better than the other.

It's lunchtime: Do you pick the low-carb chicken bowl or reach for the noodle salad with no fat? The answer may depend on which side you picked in the low-fat vs. low-carbohydrate diet debate. But we have good news for you: You can eat both! A new study reveals that both diets give similar results, so one isn't necessarily better than the other.

Low-fat vs. low-carb

A low-fat diet includes foods like fruit and cottage cheese.

A study from the Stanford University School of Medicine tried to answer the hotly contested issue of which diet is better: low-fat or low-carb. Researchers followed 609 overweight adults, split into two groups based on their diets, to monitor their weight changes for 12 months. They found that there was no significant difference in their weight loss based on the low-carb and low-fat diets. This means that they didn't see one dietary strategy as more successful than the other.

Although researchers didn't list every meal that study participants ate over the course of 12 months (just imagine the size of that spreadsheet), they did share that both groups focused on eating healthy foods. For instance, they couldn't drink soda despite it being low-fat. And they wanted everyone to view this as a lifestyle change instead of a temporary diet, so they didn't force anyone to restrict carbs or fat in an unhealthy way.

Here's how the numbers break down:

  • The low-fat participants ate a diet consisting of 48 percent carbohydrates, 29 percent fat, and 21 percent protein.
  • The low-carb participants ate a diet consisting of 30 percent carbohydrates, 45 percent fat, and 23 percent protein.

Overall, those on the healthy low-fat diet lost an average of 5.3 kg (11.68 lbs), and those on the healthy low-carb diet lost an average of 6.0 kg (13.22 lbs). Researchers didn't view this as a significant difference.

Despite warnings, people are still drawn to fad diets because they want a quick fix and instant results. Unfortunately, these trends are usually not sustainable long-term, and many gain the pounds right back. The experts also warn that extreme versions of the low-fat and low-carb diets can be dangerous for your health. If you cut out too much fat, then you could have a higher risk of depression, infertility, and problems absorbing nutrients. If your carb-cutting goes too far, then you're more likely to have kidney problems, headaches, and nutrient deficiencies.

That's why a well-balanced approach is the key, instead of hopping on the next version of the trendiest diet fad. Colette Heimowitz, VP of nutrition, communication, and education at Atkins Nutritionals, Inc., thinks what sets this study apart is that the participants were asked to focus on eating healthy foods. "It does prove that when you limit added sugars, refined flours, trans fats, and processed foods and embrace a healthy whole-food diet, you can lose weight and make lasting lifestyle changes," she says.

Kitty Broihier, licensed dietitian and scientific advisor for nutrition navigation and rating company Guiding Stars, agrees. "Eat whole grains, fruits, vegetables, proteins, and healthy fats. A diet that is made up of these foods will in many cases be lower in calories and will be more filling, in large part due to more fiber from the whole grains and increased produce," she explains.

This should make picking out lunch easier tomorrow. Don't worry about counting carbs or fat. Instead, focus on whole, nutritious foods.
