Researchers have found that there's no difference between low-carb diets and high-carb diets for those wanting to lose weight or control blood-glucose levels.
Low-carb is not worse than high-carb; and it's not better than high-carb. They are equally effective.— Hamish van Wyk, Dietician and Diabetes educator
Banting beginners have difficulty defining low-carbs and studies do not accurately reflect food intake or meal plans, according to recent findings.
When it comes to the low-carb high-fat diet, a study suggests that there are huge discrepancies between what people are meant to eat and what they actually eat.
Dietician and diabetes educator Hamish van Wyk says low-carb diet research is difficult to unpack.
However, analysis from a group of studies found that the majority of people cannot maintain their low-carb diet.
Van Wyk says it is the quality of one's diet that counts above anything else.
