A Review on Low-Carbohydrate Diet and Women’s Health

  title={A Review on Low-Carbohydrate Diet and Women’s Health},
  author={B Udaya},
low-carbohydrate eating regimens can bring about weight reduction and enhance metabolic wellbeing. There is some proof that a low-sugar eating routine may help individuals get more fit more rapidly than a low-fat eating regimen and may help them keep up that weight reduction. While low-carbohydrate weight control plans are frequently characterized by the supreme measure of sugar admission, normally under 70 g for each day, different levels of dietary carbohydrate are generally characterized in… 



Effect of a Low-Carbohydrate Diet on Appetite, Blood Glucose Levels, and Insulin Resistance in Obese Patients with Type 2 Diabetes

The effects of a strict low-carbohydrate diet, which included the diet supplements recommended by Dr. Atkins, on energy intake and expenditure, body weight and body water, glucose metabolism, and insulin sensitivity in obese patients with type 2 diabetes in the controlled environment of a clinical research center are determined.

A low-carbohydrate as compared with a low-fat diet in severe obesity.

Severely obese subjects with a high prevalence of diabetes or the metabolic syndrome lost more weight during six months on a carbohydrate- restricted diet than on a calorie- and fat-restricted diet, with a relative improvement in insulin sensitivity and triglyceride levels, even after adjustment for the amount of weight lost.

Low-carbohydrate-diet score and risk of type 2 diabetes in women.

The data suggest that diets lower in carbohydrate and higher in fat and protein do not increase the risk of type 2 diabetes in women, and in fact, diets rich in vegetable sources offat and protein may modestly reduce therisk of diabetes.

Long-term effects of a very low-carbohydrate diet and a low-fat diet on mood and cognitive function.

There was a favorable effect of an energy-restricted LF diet compared with an isocaloric LC diet on mood state and affect in overweight and obese individuals, and both diets had similar effects on working memory and speed of processing.

Low-carbohydrate-diet score and the risk of coronary heart disease in women.

It is suggested that diets lower in carbohydrate and higher in protein and fat are not associated with increased risk of coronary heart disease in women and when vegetable sources of fat and protein are chosen, these diets may moderately reduce the risk of heart disease.

Dietary Intervention for Overweight and Obese Adults: Comparison of Low-Carbohydrate and Low-Fat Diets. A Meta-Analysis

This trial-level meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials comparing LoCHO diets with LoFAT diets in strictly adherent populations demonstrates that each diet was associated with significant weight loss and reduction in predicted risk of ASCVD events.

Comparison of weight-loss diets with different compositions of fat, protein, and carbohydrates.

Low-calorie diets result in clinically meaningful weight loss regardless of which macronutrients they emphasize, and improved lipid-related risk factors and fasting insulin levels.

The effects of a low-carbohydrate, ketogenic diet on the polycystic ovary syndrome: A pilot study

A low-carbohydrate, ketogenic diet led to significant improvement in weight, percent free testosterone, LH/FSH ratio, and fasting insulin in women with obesity and PCOS over a 24 week period.

Beyond weight loss: a review of the therapeutic uses of very-low-carbohydrate (ketogenic) diets

The meaning of physiological ketosis is revisited and whether there are still some preconceived ideas about ketogenic diets, which may be presenting unnecessary barriers to their use as therapeutic tools in the physician's hand are questioned.

The effect of a plant-based low-carbohydrate ("Eco-Atkins") diet on body weight and blood lipid concentrations in hyperlipidemic subjects.

A low-carb carbohydrate plant-based diet has lipid-lowering advantages over a high-carbohydrate, low-fat weight-loss diet in improving heart disease risk factors not seen with conventional low- fat diets with animal products.
