Two Studies Cast Further Doubt on the Effectiveness of Low GI/GL Diets for Weight Loss
Date:2/11/2008

culture Human Nutrition Research Center on Aging at Tufts University (USDA HNRCA) also showed that the glycemic load of the diet doesn't matter as long as calories are reduced. In this study, 34 overweight, but otherwise healthy, men and women achieved and maintained similar weight and body fat losses after one year, whether they were on a low-glycemic-load or a high-glycemic-load diet. The reason? Both groups reduced their energy intake by 30%.

According to Glenn Gasser, Associate Professor of Exercise Physiology at the University of Virginia, the results of these studies are not surprising. "If you want to lose weight reduce the number of calories you consume, not carbohydrates!" In a recent review published in the Journal of the American Dietetic Association, Gasser found that diets high in carbohydrates are almost universally associated with slimmer bodies and consuming a high-glycemic diet is not associated with higher body weights. "It is not the GI or GL that makes for healthier bodies, but the overall quality of a high-carb diet, which includes more fiber-rich and nutrient dense foods. Potatoes can certainly fit into this category."

The United States Potato Board was established in 1971 by a group of potato growers to promote the benefits of eating potatoes. Recognized as an innovator in the producer marketing industry, the USPB was one of the first commodity groups to develop and use a nutrition label that was approved by the FDA. Based in Denver, CO, the USPB represents more than 4,000 potato growers and handlers across the country. For more information about the USPB and its programs, visit http://www.healthypotato.com.
