BACKGROUND Childhood obesity has been recognized as the new epidemic in developed countries. Caloric restriction with physical activity is the main therapeutic treatment available for these children. We compared two different dietary protocols to assess treatment efficacy. METHODS Obese children from the Pediatric Endocrinology clinic were prospectively recruited for the study. Children and their parents were allowed to choose one of two dietary protocols: (1) carbohydrate restricted diet…

Unlimited energy, restricted carbohydrate diet improves lipid parameters in obese children.
TLDR
A significant decrease in total cholesterol and triglycerides in elementary school-aged children after 10 weeks of a restricted-carbohydrate, unlimited protein, and unlimited energy diet is demonstrated, suggesting that this diet may decrease cardiovascular risk factors in obese children.
A 12-week, whole-food carbohydrate-restricted feasibility study in overweight children
TLDR
Overweight children aged 8–13 years provided with whole-food, carbohydrate-restricted dietary guidelines achieved some weight loss and health outcome success using this dietary approach, and reports of affordability by parents were mixed.
Effects of a low glycemic load or a low-fat dietary intervention on body weight in obese Hispanic American children and adolescents: a randomized controlled trial.
TLDR
No evidence was shown that an LGD and an LFD differ in efficacy for the reduction of BMI or aspects of metabolic syndrome in obese Hispanic youth, when prescribed in the context of a culturally adapted, comprehensive weight-reduction program.
Low‐carbohydrate interventions for adolescent obesity: Nutritional adequacy and guidance for clinical practice
TLDR
Dietary manipulation was required to minimize saturated fat and reach micronutrient adequacy, particularly for calcium in males and females, and iron for females.
Weight loss programmes using low carbohydrate diets to control the cardiovascular risk in adolescents (Review).
TLDR
It was observed that those who control the quality and quantity of their carbohydrates, by consuming more fruits and vegetables, associated with increased physical activity reduce their CVR, and the nutritional interventions for this population that could decrease CVR were synthesized.
Effects of meals high in carbohydrate, protein, and fat on ghrelin and peptide YY secretion in prepubertal children.
TLDR
The patterns of secretion of ghrelin and PYY in the study of prepubertal children suggest that they may play a role in the effectiveness of high-protein/low-carbohydrate diets in promoting weight loss.
UK evaluation of family-based behavioural intervention for paediatric obesity
TLDR
The present findings suggest that FBBT was an effective and feasible treatment for childhood obesity in this study and would benefit from replication with a larger, randomised sample.
Dietary Management of Hypercholesterolemia in Infants and Children
TLDR
The prevalence of lipid abnormalities in children is increasing, primarily in association with the concomitant epidemic of obesity and the metabolic syndrome, and elevated non-HDL-C concentrations during childhood and adolescence also have been shown to predict high non- HDL-C concentration during adulthood.

Safety of a fat-reduced diet: the Dietary Intervention Study in Children (DISC).
TLDR
Lower fat intakes during puberty are nutritionally adequate for growth and for maintenance of normal levels of nutritional biochemical measures, and are associated with beneficial effects on blood folate and hemoglobin.
High protein vs high carbohydrate hypoenergetic diet for the treatment of obese hyperinsulinemic subjects
TLDR
A low-carbohydrate (LC), HP hypoenergetic diet could be the diet composition of choice for a weight-reducing regimen in obese hyperinsulinemic subjects.
Long-term safety and efficacy of a cholesterol-lowering diet in children with elevated low-density lipoprotein cholesterol: seven-year results of the Dietary Intervention Study in Children (DISC).
TLDR
Changes in the usual care group's diet suggest that pediatric practices and societal and environmental forces are having positive public health effects on dietary behavior during adolescence, and dietary fat modification can be achieved and safely sustained in actively growing children with elevated LDL-C.
Adiposity in childhood predicts obesity and insulin resistance in young adulthood.
TLDR
It is confirmed that adiposity in childhood is a strong predictor of young adult adiposity and cardiovascular risk in young adulthood is highly related to the degree of adiposity as early as age 13.
Lipid Profiles of Obese Children and Adolescents Before and After Significant Weight Loss: Differences According to Sex
TLDR
A combination of diet, behavior modification, and exercise, is an effective instrument for lowering total cholesterol and triglyceride levels in obese children and girls tend to be more susceptible to a decrease in LDL level, which might result in an increased cardiovascular protective effect.
Sugar and body weight regulation.
TLDR
Whether consumption of high amounts of sugars presents a public health problem by contributing to the development of obesity is considered, with no reason to associate high-sugar diets with obesity.
Effect of habitual dietary-protein intake on appetite and satiety
TLDR
The hypothesis that the satiating effect of dietary protein varies inversely with habitual protein intake is supported, with significant correlations between satiety after the three meals and daily protein intake.
Childhood obesity in a population at high risk for type 2 diabetes.
TLDR
The early onset of type 2 diabetes in childhood is increasingly observed in many populations and Childhood obesity is a strong risk factor, and early detection and intervention directed at obesity are potential strategies to avert the long-term consequences ofType 2 diabetes.
Insulin sensitivity, lipids, and body composition in childhood: is "syndrome X" present?
TLDR
The present study concludes that after the onset of puberty, basal insulin levels are positively correlated with VLDL and TG regardless of the degree of adiposity, suggesting that the relationship of insulin sensitivity to lipid levels was secondary to the effect of body composition on lipid levels.
