Effects of Macronutrient Distribution on Weight Change and Related Cardiometabolic Profiles in Healthy Non-Obese Chinese: A Randomized, Clinical Trial
Meeting Rooms 1&2, Level 4, Institute of Metabolic Science, Cambridge Biomedical Campus
This 6 month randomized controlled-feeding trial was conducted to determine whether the traditional low fat, high carbohydrate diet is more effective than the higher fat, lower carbohydrate diet at preventing obesity among a non-obese healthy population in China. The trial included 307 young adults aged 18-35 years with a body mass index of less than 28. It showed that the low fat, high carbohydrate diet reduced body weight to a greater extent than a higher fat, lower carbohydrate intake.
