The carbohydrate–insulin model of obesity theorizes that diets high in carbohydrate are particularly fattening due to their propensity to elevate insulin secretion. Insulin directs the partitioning of energy toward storage as fat in adipose tissue and away from oxidation by metabolically active tissues and purportedly results in a perceived state of cellular internal starvation. In response, hunger and appetite increases and metabolism is suppressed, thereby promoting the positive energy… Expand
The carbohydrate-insulin model: a physiological perspective on the obesity pandemic.
TLDR
An alternative paradigm, the carbohydrate-insulin model (CIM), proposes a reversal of causal direction, and provides a conceptual framework with testable hypotheses for how various modifiable factors influence energy balance and fat storage. Expand
The Carbohydrate-Insulin Model of Obesity: Beyond “Calories In, Calories Out”
TLDR
The principles of a low-glycemic load diet offer a practical alternative to the conventional focus on dietary fat and calorie restriction and provide a conceptual framework for understanding how many dietary and nondietary exposures might alter hormones, metabolism, and adipocyte biology in ways that could predispose to obesity. Expand
The carbohydrate-insulin model does not explain the impact of varying dietary macronutrients on the body weight and adiposity of mice
TLDR
The CIM does not explain the impact of dietary macronutrients on adiposity in mice and only the post-prandial insulin and fasting glucose levels followed the CIM's predictions. Expand
Ketogenic Diet and Glucose Control

  • 2019
TLDR
The Ketogenic diet includes very low-carbohydrate and high fat and is known to be effective for weight loss in a short period of time and there is a lack of evidence with respect to recommending this diet as nutrition therapy for diabetics. Expand
Excess insulin and hypoxia, linkages to obesity and type 2 diabetes
TLDR
A series of analyses of a national dataset is presented to demonstrate the mediating role of insulin and oxygen for obesity and the implications and applicability of this knowledge for preventing and managing obesity and obesity-related chronic conditions. Expand
Restoration of metabolic tempo through time-restricted eating (TRE) as the preventive measure for metabolic diseases
TLDR
There is no study confirming that TRE could prevent the development of common metabolic diseases in healthy subjects after long-term implementation, but the gap of knowledge warrants future investigation. Expand
Overweight and diabetes prevention: is a low-carbohydrate–high-fat diet recommendable?
  • F. Brouns
  • Medicine
  • European Journal of Nutrition
  • 2018
TLDR
A narrative review highlights recent metabolic and clinical outcomes of studies as well as practical feasibility of low LCHF diets, and concludes that lifestyle intervention in people at high risk of developing type 2 diabetes, while maintaining a relative carbohydrate-rich diet, results in long-term prevention of progression to type 1 diabetes and is generally seen as safe.

Impact of dietary sucrose on adiposity and glucose homeostasis in C57BL/6J mice depends on mode of ingestion: liquid or solid
Objective Although it is widely accepted that obesity results from an imbalance of energy intake and expenditure, the mechanisms underlying this process and effective strategies for prevention andExpand
Combination of a high-fat diet with sweetened condensed milk exacerbates inflammation and insulin resistance induced by each separately in mice
TLDR
The combination HSHF exacerbated the effects of each separately on insulin resistance and AT inflammatory state, and induced obesity and metabolic dysfunction in mice fed with three obesogenic diets. Expand
Ketogenic Diet: an Endocrinologist Perspective
TLDR
A review of available data on the effectiveness and durability of the ketogenic diet when compared to conventional interventions finds ketogenic dietary strategies may play a role in short-term improvement of important metabolic parameters with potential for long-term benefit. Expand

Energy expenditure and body composition changes after an isocaloric ketogenic diet in overweight and obese men.
TLDR
The isocaloric KD was not accompanied by increased body fat loss but was associated with relatively small increases in EE that were near the limits of detection with the use of state-of-the-art technology. Expand
Obesity and energy balance: is the tail wagging the dog?
TLDR
A perspective on obesity aetiology is formulated that emphasises metabolic flexibility and dietary composition rather than energy balance, and question the direction of causation of reported associations between obesity and sleep duration or childhood growth. Expand
Failure to increase lipid oxidation in response to increasing dietary fat content in formerly obese women.
TLDR
Independent of energy balance, an increase in dietary fat content to 50% fat energy results in preferential fat storage, impaired suppression of carbohydrate oxidation, and reduction of 24-h EE in postobese women. Expand
Fat and carbohydrate balances during adaptation to a high-fat.
TLDR
Both baseline insulin concentration and f1.gif" BORDER="0">O(2)max during treadmill exercise predict fat balance during the shift to a high-fat diet under isoenergetic conditions. Expand
Low-carbohydrate nutrition and metabolism.
The persistence of an epidemic of obesity and type 2 diabetes suggests that new nutritional strategies are needed if the epidemic is to be overcome. A promising nutritional approach suggested by thisExpand
Fat and carbohydrate overfeeding in humans: different effects on energy storage.
TLDR
Excess dietary fat leads to greater fat accumulation than does excess dietary carbohydrate, and the difference was greatest early in the overfeeding period. Expand
The role of protein in weight loss and maintenance.
TLDR
Data suggest that higher-protein diets that contain between 1.2 and 1.6 g protein · kg-1 · d-1 and potentially include meal-specific protein quantities of at least ∼25-30 g protein/meal provide improvements in appetite, body weight management, cardiometabolic risk factors, or all of these health outcomes; however, further strategies to increase dietary compliance with long-term dietary interventions are warranted.

Effects of Dietary Fat and Carbohydrate Exchange on Human Energy Metabolism
TLDR
The results suggest that a low-fat diet would be beneficial in the treatment of obesity, especially if subjects have a restrained type of eating behaviour. Expand
Beneficial effect of low carbohydrate in low calorie diets on visceral fat reduction in type 2 diabetic patients with obesity.
TLDR
The results suggest that, when restrict diet was made isocaloric, a low calorie/low carbohydrate diet might be more effective treatment for a reduction of visceral fat, improved insulin sensitivity and increased in HDL-C levels than low calories/high carbohydrate diet in obese subjects with type 2 diabetes mellitus.

Thermodynamics and metabolic advantage of weight loss diets.
TLDR
There is no theoretical contradiction in metabolic advantage and no theoretical barrier to accepting reports describing this effect, and a plausible mechanism that depends on the inefficiency of metabolic cycles and, in particular, protein turnover is presented. Expand
