Some people who are against low carb diets argue that the diet allows the consumption of more amounts of bad cholesterols by not limiting the amounts of saturated fats in their diets. However, studies of both groups in the yearlong studies showed that there was no significant difference between the LDL levels of both groups. Low carb dieters though, have been shown to have lower blood fats and good cholesterols were better too. It has been surmised that a low carb diet is more recommended for people suffering from type 2 diabetes because of its suggested nature.
The averages derived from the studies are suggestive but are not conclusive. There was a wide range in terms of weight differences in weight lost (or gained) in the diet plans to be able to draw a conclusion. Experts agree however, that low-carb diets should be supplemented by the intake of healthier fats from better sources such as olive oils and plant derived oils instead of saturated fats and trans fats. Low fat diets should also supplement their diets by taking in carbohydrates from healthier sources like foods made from whole grains and foods composed of complex carbohydrates.
People who are serious about losing weight should talk to their doctors and dieticians about the best diet recommendations for them. At the end of the day, diets are influenced by many individual factors such as genetics and personal taste that there is no cookie cutter solution for everyone. You might want to experiment with your diet and see which one works best for you.
