As you may have heard there's a new LC vs. LF diet RCT out there. I'll have more to say about that when some time frees up, but I have had a chance to look at the full text and it is quite the horribly conducted study -- at least by the description put forth in a fairly highly regarded peer review journal. (disturbing ....)
In any case, the LC group was instructed to keep carbs under 40g per day. If you arm a person with some tables of carb content or links to online databases, etc., this is a pretty straight forward and "simple" task. By that I mean, disregarding any issues with compliance, the task remains an easy and straightforward one.
The LF group was instructed to reduce total fat to a maximum of 30% of calories and sat fat to a maximum of 7%. We are then told that no calorie goals were specified (for either group).
Pray tell, how does the LF group accomplish their goal?
