What do you think, GR8 dieters? Have you seen or experienced a rivaling success with a low carb or low-fat diet? Weigh in on your weight loss experience with the rest of our GR8NESS community. For diets’ sake, let’s delve into what the latest information tells us about the most effective diets for losing weight. People everywhere are confused: which diet should they select?
Keto vs. Low-Fat Diets
There seems to be much debate on whether ketogenic principles (high fat) versus diets requiring low fat intake are better. Media, celebrity endorsements, and social media all have their takes—but what’s the deal?
What’s the Difference?
The keto diet is composed of a high protein, high fat, and low carb intake. So, in comparing keto versus a low-fat approach, the question to ask is: Is low carb or low fat more beneficial in losing weight? While there are countless testimonials on behalf of both, the latest studies speak for themselves.
What Science Says
Some studies might argue that one diet is more effective than the other, but other studies show that the two approaches both have their successes. The central fact to note, however, is that research has not concluded a “one size fits all” solution to the best diet, but rather general guidelines. This makes sense, as if there was, in fact, a statistically proven “best” diet, we likely would never hear the end of it.
Instead, studies suggest that the results of each are comparable, and determined on a case by case basis—all depending on a variety of factors about the individual at hand.
