The investigators will test the hypothesis that a LOW CARB hypocaloric diet will reduce body weight over six months more than a LOW FAT hypocaloric diet. In addition to body weight, the investigators will measure cardiovascular and metabolic variables and will take blood samples in order to determine whether certain metabolites may predict the diet success.

Iron or iron compounds used in foods or as food. Dietary iron is important in oxygen transport and the synthesis of the iron-porphyrin proteins hemoglobin, myoglobin, cytochromes, and cytochrome oxidase. Insufficient amounts of dietary iron can lead to iron-deficiency anemia.
Phosphorus used in foods or obtained from food. This element is a major intracellular component which plays an important role in many biochemical pathways relating to normal physiological functions. High concentrations of dietary phosphorus can cause nephrocalcinosis which is associated with impaired kidney function. Low concentrations of dietary phosphorus cause an increase in calcitriol in the blood and osteoporosis.
