Abstract

Compared with a diet high in total and saturated fat, a high carbohydrate diet improves insulin sensitivity and lipid levels. Recent studies have shown that subjects on an ad-lib low fat, high carbohydrate diet lose weight and, therefore, may have even greater improvement in the metabolic disturbances of the insulin resistance syndrome.
