Unlimited calorie, low-carb diet better and healthier for obese children

Brian S. Dunlap, James R. Bailes, Jr.. Unlimited Energy, Restricted Carbohydrate Diet Improves Lipid Parameters in Obese Children. Metabolic Syndrome and Related Disorders. March 1, 2008, 6(1): 32-36. doi:10.1089/met.2007.0023.

Background: Childhood obesity is a leading health concern. We have previously demonstrated the effectiveness of a restricted-carbohydrate, unlimited energy diet for weight reduction in elementary school–aged children. To our knowledge, there are no studies that have looked at the effect of this diet on lipid profiles in elementary school–aged children. Therefore, the objective of this pilot study was to examine the effect of a restricted-carbohydrate, unlimited protein, unlimited energy diet on lipid profiles in obese children 6 to 12 years of age.

Methods: Overweight children (body mass index >97%) referred to our obesity clinic were treated with a restricted-carbohydrate (<30 grams daily), unlimited protein, and unlimited energy diet. Weight, height, body mass index, and fasting lipid profiles were obtained at baseline and at 10 weeks on each patient.

Results: Twenty-seven patients were enrolled in our study, with a total of 18 patients returning for our 10 week follow-up (67%). The study group included 10 males and 8 females, with an age range of 6 to 12 years. Both total serum cholesterol and triglyceride levels showed a significant reduction; 24.2 (P = 0.018) and 56.9 (P = 0.015) mg/dL, respectively.

Conclusions: We have demonstrated a significant decrease in total cholesterol and triglycerides in elementary school–aged children after 10 weeks of a restricted-carbohydrate, unlimited protein, and unlimited energy diet. We suggest that this diet may decrease cardiovascular risk factors in obese children. Long-term studies will be needed to substantiate these data.

COMMENT: Although this a new study, and it calls for yet more studies of an unlimited calorie, low-carb diet in weight loss, such diets have been promoted and shown to work and be safe for nearly a century and a half. How much more evidence do we need that Government programmes supposedly aimed ath the growing obesity problem in the West, are hopelessly wrong?
