This study will compare the safety and effectiveness of a low carbohydrate diet (Atkins Diet) with a high carbohydrate diet (conventional USDA diet).
Despite the considerable mass appeal of popular diet books, such diet approaches lack data to support their efficacy and safety. Despite its widespread use for more than 30 years, the Atkins diet has never been evaluated in a large, randomized, controlled trial. This study will assess the short-term and long-term clinical effects of a low-carbohydrate diet and a high-carbohydrate diet in overweight and obese men and women.
Participants in this study will be randomly assigned to the Atkins diet (low-carbohydrate, unlimited fat and protein) or a conventional USDA diet (high-carbohydrate, low fat). The study will evaluate the effects of each dietary approach on changes in: 1) weight and body composition, 2) metabolic and organ function, 3) exercise tolerance. Each participant will be enrolled in the study for 2 years.

This study will compare the safety and the effectiveness of a low carbohydrate diet (Atkins diet) with a high carbohydrate diet (conventional USDA diet).
This study will examine the effects of a low carbohydrate diet versus a high carbohydrate diet on weight loss.
This is a follow-up research study to determine if there are any differences in the long-term maintenance of two diet groups, the Atkins’ diet (low-carbohydrate) or the LEARN program (lo...
This study compares two types of diet interventions: a low carbohydrate ketogenic diet (Atkins) and a low-fat diet combined with a medication (Orlistat).
Participants 66 and older who have mild cognitive decline will be randomized to either a healthy, high carbohydrate diet or an Atkins low-carbohydrate diet for approximately 6 weeks with t...
Maternal obesity is associated with adverse effects on the health of offsprings. Consumption of a high-carbohydrate (HC) diet has been found to promote abnormal fatty acid metabolism in adipose tissue...
Obesity-associated hypothalamic inflammation plays an important role in the development of defective neuronal control of whole body energy balance. Because dietary fats are the main triggers of hypoth...
High calorie intake leads to obesity, a global socio-economic and health problem, reaching epidemic proportion in children and adolescents. Saturated and monounsaturated fatty acids from animal (lard)...
Continuous feeding of a combined high-fat and high-sucrose diet, rather than an individual high-fat or high-sucrose diet, rapidly enhances the glucagon-like peptide-1 secretory response to meal ingestion in diet-induced obese rats.
Glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) is secreted by enteroendocrine L-cells in response to nutrient ingestion. To date, GLP-1 secretion in diet-induced obesity is not well characterized. We aimed to examin...
The aim of this study was investigate the effects of a low-protein, high-carbohydrate (LPHC) diet introduced to rats soon after weaning. The animals were distributed in the following groups: LPHC45: f...
A diet that contains limited amounts of CARBOHYDRATES. This is in distinction to a regular DIET.

A diet prescribed in the treatment of diabetes mellitus, usually limited in the amount of sugar or readily available carbohydrate. (Dorland, 27th ed)
Regular course of eating and drinking adopted by a person or animal. This does not include DIET THERAPY, a specific diet prescribed in the treatment of a disease.
