Keto vs low-fat/highcarb

Today’s Muscle PhD Academy investigate ketogenic dieting vs. low fat-high carbohydrate dieting in weight loss. . . In this study researchers put participants on either a ketogenic diet or a low fat-high carbohydrate diet for 12 months. The participants were categorized as insulin resistant if their fasting insulin was above normal ranges (>10.6μIU/mL) and they were defined as insulin sensitive if their fasting insulin was within normal ranges (≤ 6.9 μIU/mL). What they found is that people who were insulin resistant had greater fat loss on the ketogenic diet, whereas the insulin sensitive individuals had the same fat loss regardless of the diet they were on. . . The take home message is that if you are insulin resistant, which may be the case if you’re overweight or have metabolic disorders, a ketogenic diet may help in your fat loss goals over a low fat-high carbohydrate diet. . .
