Protein Intake and Weight Loss in Obese Men and Women with Cardiometabolic Risk Factors

Despite its popularity, increasing dietary protein appears to have modest effects on weight loss. Furthermore, the proportion of total energy from protein that facilitates weight loss in nutritionist-recommended moderately energy-restricted diets is not clarified. We studied the association between protein intake and weight loss in obese men and women with cardiometabolic risk factors. A total of 158 subjects with abdominal obesity and at least 1 other metabolic syndrome risk factor were randomized to follow a low glycemic load diet high in protein [LGLHP] or a low fat diet with normal protein (LFNP). Weight loss (mean, 4-5 kg) was similar between groups after three months. The groups were combined and dietary intake was assed with a 7-day food record after three months. A general linear model was performed to test the association between dietary intake and weight loss in the combined group.
