This study was funded by the National Institute of Health and compared the results of a low carb diet to that of a low-fat diet. The results were that the low-carb dieters lost more weight even with their normal fat intake than those on the low-fat diet. Over a 12 month period, the low-carb dieters lost 3 kg (6.6 lbs) more than those who were on the low-fat diet.

Also, at the end of the study, the low-carb dieters had increased their HDL (good cholesterol) that lowered their risk for future heart disease.
