AbstractObesity is a fast growing epidemic that is primarily due to environmental influences. Nutrition and exercise represent modifiable factors with a major impact on energy balance. Despite considerable research, there remains continued debate regarding the energy content and the optimal macronutrient distribution for promoting healthy and effective weight loss. Low-fat diets have been advised for many years to reduce obesity. However, their effectiveness has been recently challenged, partly… 
Optimal Diet Strategies for Weight Loss and Weight Loss Maintenance

TLDR
There is no single best strategy for weight management, and strategies for weight loss and its maintenance should be individualized, and healthcare providers must choose the best strategy based on patient preferences.
[Weight loss and body composition changes through ketogenic diet and physical activity: a methodological and systematic review].
TLDR
There will be greater reduction of fat mass in groups that realize diets with low carbohydrates and exercise that in those who do not undertake this type of diet, and those only perform exercise.
The role of intensity of interval training on fat oxidation and eating behaviour in overweight/obese men
TLDR
Results of the medium-term intervention indicated that current interval training levels did not affect body composition, fasting insulin and fasting glucose and that FATmax is a valid method to estimate VO2 and BLa, but is not valid to estimate HR and RPE in the MIIT session.
Effect of resistance training and hypocaloric diets with different protein content on body composition and lipid profile in hypercholesterolemic obese women.
TLDR
In this study, resistance training plays a key role in improving LDL-C and Total-Cholesterol; however, a lower protein intake (< 22% of daily energy intake as proteins) was found to achieve a significantly greater reduction in HDL-C.
From efficacy to effectiveness: Two randomized controlled trials of lifestyle intervention postpartum
TLDR
The combined results from papers III and IV provide evidence that diet treatment delivered within a primary health care setting can produce clinically relevant weight loss among postpartum women with overweight and obesity.
Weight loss effects from vegetable intake: a 12-month randomised controlled trial
TLDR
Advice to consume a healthy low-energy diet leads to sustained weight loss, with reductions in cardiovascular disease risk factors regardless of an emphasis on more vegetables, in the short term.
Differential Impact of Calcium and Vitamin D on Body Composition Changes in Post-Menopausal Women Following a Restricted Energy Diet and Exercise Program
TLDR
The results expand upon current literature regarding the impact of calcium supplementation with dieting and regular exercise and highlight that different forms of calcium in combination with an energy restricted, higher carbohydrate diet may trigger changes in body mass or body composition.
Cognitive and behavioral approaches in the treatment of obesity.
Effects of Aquatic Exercise and Walking in Sedentary Obese Women Undergoing a Behavioral Weight-Loss Intervention
TLDR
It is suggested that aquatic exercise in combination with walking can serve as an alternative to walking exercise alone for overweight women during periods of weight loss, and this can improve functional health status.

Should we recommend low‐fat diets for obesity?
TLDR
In overweight or obese individuals who are dieting for the purpose of weight reduction, low‐fat diets are as efficacious as other weight‐reducing diets for achieving sustained weight loss, but not more so.
Popular diets: a scientific review.
TLDR
The objective of this article is to review the scientific literature on various types of popular diets based on their macronutrient composition in an attempt to answer questions about weight loss and/or weight maintenance.
Dietary fat plays a major role in obesity: no
  • W. Willett
  • Medicine
    Obesity reviews : an official journal of the International Association for the Study of Obesity
  • 2002
TLDR
Diets high in fat do not account for the high prevalence of excess body fat in Western countries; reductions in the percentage of energy from fat will have no important benefits and could further exacerbate this problem.
Dietary fat intake does affect obesity!
TLDR
It is concluded that dietary fat plays a role in the development of obesity and to reduce the prevalence of obesity, there must be an increase in energy expenditure, a reduction in total energy intake, or both.
Dietetic treatment of obesity with low and high-carbohydrate diets: comparative studies and clinical results.
TLDR
Evaluation of 117 patients treated with formula diets resulted in a weight loss of over 9 kg in 102 obese patients and over 18 kg in 52 patients, suggesting that the good response to the low-carbohydrate diet was partly responsible for the successful therapy.
Effects of a low-carbohydrate diet on weight loss and cardiovascular risk factor in overweight adolescents.
TLDR
The LC diet appears to be an effective method for short-term weight loss in overweight adolescents and does not harm the lipid profile.
Fat-free mass is maintained in women following a moderate diet and exercise program.
TLDR
Results suggest that moderate levels of caloric restriction, aerobic cycle exercise, and/or resistance training are equally effective in maintaining FFM while encouraging body mass loss.
A randomized trial comparing a very low carbohydrate diet and a calorie-restricted low fat diet on body weight and cardiovascular risk factors in healthy women.
TLDR
A very low carbohydrate diet is more effective than a low fat diet for short-term weight loss and, over 6 months, is not associated with deleterious effects on important cardiovascular risk factors in healthy women.
A low-carbohydrate as compared with a low-fat diet in severe obesity.
TLDR
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.
Effect of low-fat diets on plasma high-density lipoprotein concentrations.

  • Medicine

  • 1998
TLDR
Replacement of saturated fat by carbohydrates adversely affects plasma HDL concentrations; replacement of saturatedfat by unsaturated fatty acids deserves consideration as an alternative.
