Abstract

It has been previously established that low-carbohydrate diets are an effective method of inducing weight-loss in significantly overweight individuals. However, concerns have persisted about the effects of the large amount of animal fats included in traditional low-carbohydrate diets like Atkins. To test the effectiveness of a low-carbohydrate diet that does not include animal fat, a randomized trial was devised to compare the cardiovascular health markers and weight-loss of a low-carb vegan diet against a lacto-ovo vegetarian diet after 6 months.
