All calories do not have a direct effect on our weight
The children are like sand by the sea, and new ones are added every week. Who should follow? In the latest large-scale food study, for a long period of time, different diets were observed to determine which diet is growing in weight loss. It also turned out that weight loss is not just calories. Although all participants received the same number of calories over 20 weeks, one group decreased the most.
An American research team from the Boston and Framingham State Universities watched and controlled people with overweight during the 20-week period while following the prescribed diet plans. During this period, measured body weight, insulin levels, metabolic hormones and burning calories at regular intervals. Weight loss has been shown to be more important than the number of calories. The results of the study were recently published in the journal BMJ.
Obesity and obesity – a growing health problem
Overweight and obesity are an increasing health issue, not just in America, but also in Germany. Obesity promotes numerous heart disease, hypertension, diabetes, and depression (see: obesity can cause depression). Doctors and scientists are desperately looking for effective methods for suppressing this condition. Children are good measures for weight loss, but for many, success is short-lived. A few months later, weight returned, sometimes more than before.
What diet is best for weight loss?
Which diet is most effective for long-term weight loss? The US research team answered this question. The researchers compared three children with a group of obese subjects over a period of 20 weeks. The University has fully provided nutrition so that all participants get the same amount of calories.
Three children – the same number of calories, different weight loss
Participants are divided into three groups. One group received a diet that consisted of 20% of carbohydrates, 40% of carbohydrates in the second group, and 60% of carbohydrates in the third group. Although the number of calories was exactly the same in all three groups, participants in the low-carb content group showed the smallest negative and sustainable weight.
Calories are not equal to calories
Researchers have concluded that carbohydrate calories lead to faster storage of fats. "Carbohydrates increased insulin levels during diet and brought fat cells to store more calories," says the research director. Med. David Ludvig in a press release on the results of the studies. Increased storage will be available for the rest of your body with less calories. Result: Metabolism slows down and hunger increases, so an expert in nutrition. This condition can result in rapid weight gain.
Loss of weight in a low-carbine group was significantly higher
As the researchers documented, overall energy consumption in the low carbohydrate group was highest in 20 weeks. With the same average body weight and calories, participants who followed low-carrageenan foods burned about 250 calories a day more than those with higher carbohydrate intake. People who already had high levels of insulin at the beginning of the study were even more drastic. Here, a low-carbon group burned 400 calories a day.
Model of carbohydrate insulin
The study provides evidence that the so-called carbohydrate-insulin model is suitable for the treatment of obesity. Researchers could have shown that carbohydrate intake led to higher insulin release. This promotes the buildup of fat deposits, slows down the metabolism, prevents satiety and promotes a sense of hunger. "Our observations provoke the belief that all calories are the same for the body," says another director of the study, Cara Ebbeling. (Vb)
