OBJECTIVES To compare the effects of a low-carbohydrate (LC) diet with those of a low-fat (LF) diet on weight loss and serum lipids in overweight adolescents. [] Key MethodDESIGN A randomized, controlled 12-week trial. SETTING Atherosclerosis prevention referral center. METHODS Random, nonblinded assignment of participants referred for weight management.

Comparison of a low-fat diet to a low-carbohydrate diet on weight loss, body composition, and risk factors for diabetes and cardiovascular disease in free-living, overweight men and women.
TLDR
The data suggest that energy restriction achieved by a very LC diet is equally effective as a LF diet strategy for weight loss and decreasing body fat in overweight and obese adults.
A randomized trial comparing low-fat and low-carbohydrate diets matched for energy and protein.
TLDR
Investigating whether, when protein and energy are held constant, there is a significant difference in fat and weight loss when fat and carbohydrate are dramatically varied in the diet found no significant weight loss, lipid, serum insulin, or glucose differences between the two diets.
An evaluation of the atkins' diet.
TLDR
Caloric intake is decreased when otherwise healthy overweight and obese adults self-implement Atkins' Induction and Ongoing Weight Loss diets and significantly altered their dietary micronutrient intake.
Very low-carbohydrate and low-fat diets affect fasting lipids and postprandial lipemia differently in overweight men.
TLDR
The very low-carbohydrate diet was more effective at improving characteristics of the metabolic syndrome as shown by a decrease in fasting serum TAG, the TAG/HDL-C ratio, postprandial lipemia, serum glucose, an increase in LDL particle size, and also greater weight loss.
A Low-Carbohydrate, Ketogenic Diet versus a Low-Fat Diet To Treat Obesity and Hyperlipidemia
TLDR
Body weight, body composition, serum lipid levels, and adverse effects over 24 weeks in hyperlipidemic persons who were randomly assigned to follow a low-carbohydrate, ketogenic, or low-fat, low-cholesterol, reduced-calorie diet are examined.

Similar weight loss with low- or high-carbohydrate diets.
TLDR
The results of this study showed that it was energy intake, not nutrient composition, that determined weight loss in response to low-energy diets over a short time period.
The Effects of a High-protein, Low-fat, Ketogenic Diet on Adolescents With Morbid Obesity: Body Composition, Blood Chemistries, and Sleep Abnormalities
TLDR
The K diet can be used effectively for rapid weight loss in adolescents with morbid obesity and loss in lean body mass is blunted, blood chemistries remain normal, and sleep abnormalities significantly decrease with weight loss.
Weight loss and changes in energy metabolism in massively obese adolescents
TLDR
The results indicate that in massively obese adolescents, REE for fat‐free mass is decreased at the very beginning of the process of losing weight and remains decreased as long as energy restriction and weight reduction carry on.
Body composition and hormonal responses to a carbohydrate-restricted diet.
TLDR
It is concluded that a carbohydrate-restricted diet resulted in a significant reduction in fat mass and a concomitant increase in lean body mass in normal-weight men, which may be partially mediated by the reduction in circulating insulin concentrations.
A ketogenic diet favorably affects serum biomarkers for cardiovascular disease in normal-weight men.
TLDR
The results suggest that a short-term ketogenic diet does not have a deleterious effect on CVD risk profile and may improve the lipid disorders characteristic of atherogenic dyslipidemia.
Changes in plasma lipids and other cardiovascular risk factors during 3 energy-restricted diets differing in total fat and fatty acid composition.
TLDR
Significantly greater decreases in LDL cholesterol during active weight loss are achieved with diets low in saturated fatty acids, and changes in HDL cholesterol between diets appear dependent on both the fat content of the diet and the duration of energy restriction.
Diets high and low in glycemic index versus high monounsaturated fat diets: effects on glucose and lipid metabolism in NIDDM
TLDR
High-mono high-GI and high- CHO, low-GI diets are superior to high-CHO, high- GI diets with respect to HDL metabolism but no effect was noted on glucose metabolism in variably controlled NIDDM subjects.
Ad libitum intake of a high-carbohydrate or high-fat diet in young men: effects on nutrient balances.
TLDR
The results emphasize the important role of the dietary fat content in body fat storage and the impact of diet composition on macronutrient intakes and nutrient balances in young men of normal body weight.
