Low Carb vs Low Fat for Greater Weight Loss?

Is a low-fat diet or a low-carb diet more effective for weight loss? The Public Health Collaboration has made a summary of randomized controlled studies that test this. Which diet do you think was the best for weight loss?

Public Health Collaboration: Randomised Controlled Trials Comparing Low-Carb Diets Of Less Than 130g Carbohydrate Per Day To Low-Fat Diets Of Less Than 35% Fat Of Total Calories

Here are the results of the summary:

  • In 26 studies, the low-carb group showed statistically significantly greater weight loss.
  • The number of studies won by low fat? ZERO.

In other words, when it comes to low carb vs. low fat for weight loss, the score is 26 - 0.

It seems like we have an answer to the question.
