Low-Fat, High-Carb Diet For Post-Menopausal Women

The findings of a pilot study by The New Women's Health Initiative (WHI) suggests, a prolonged dietary pattern significantly deficient in fat but rich in carbohydrates results in negligible weight gain. //

WHI investigated the connection between weight alterations in postmenopausal women Vis a Vis variations in consumed foods during a specific timeframe. Women in this category were advised to reduce the fat consumption to 20% of calories and instead consume carbohydrates commensurate to displaced fat calories. There was no change in the total calorie consumption.

The study aimed at examining the effects of a low fat high carbohydrate diet and its assistance in lowering the risk of cancer and cardiovascular diseases. Diet-related education content was made available to the control group. The Participants lost about 5 pounds in the beginning and were about a pound less after 9 years as compared to the usual diet control group.

The Journal of the American Medical Association has published the findings of the study titled "Low-Fat Dietary Pattern and Weight Change Over 7 Years - the Women's Health Initiative Dietary Modification Trial." The National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) of the National Institutes of Health has funded the study.

The NHLBI is under the purview of the National Institutes Of Health (NIH). NIH belongs to the U.S Department of Health and Human Services.
