Low-Fat Vs Low-Carb? Which Diet Works Best for Weight Loss? A National Institute of Health major study concludes that for weight loss results, neither diet works better than the other diet. In a year-long clinical trial conducted by the National Institute of Health, there was no significant weight-loss differences between the low-fat and low-carb groups in the study.

After 12 months, National Institute of Health states “the low-fat group had lost 11.7 lbs (5.3 kg) and the low-carb group 13.2 lbs (6.0 kg); this difference of 1.5 lbs over 12 months (0.125 lbs/month) is neither statistically significant nor clinically relevant.”

This study, along with a large body of other evidence indicates that neither low-fat nor a low-carb will significantly improve your chances of losing weight (if caloric intake is the same). Instead, choose a diet based your personal preferences and health goals, plus choose a healthy diet that you will be able to maintain for life.
