Eating a High Fat Diet and Staying Lean
The results of a recent study show that a low carb diet (high fat, medium protein, low carb) plus exercise helps people to lose weight quicker than a low fat diet. Vascular health was also monitored, and there were no negative impact on vascular health reported with either diet. The trial was short, so the authors put in a boiler plate mention that the long term effects are "yet to be determined." Other research has demonstrated the safety of the low carb diet over the longer term.
