Overall, the low-carb diet had significantly more beneficial effects on weight and key biomarkers in this group of severely obese individuals.
Overall, the low-carb group lost more weight and had much greater improvements in several important risk factors for cardiovascular disease. Many other health markers like blood pressure and triglycerides improved in both groups, but the difference between groups was not statistically significant. On the LC diet, the LDL particles partly shifted from small to large (good), while they partly shifted from large to small on LF (bad). The majority of studies achieved statistically significant differences in weight loss (always in favor of low-carb).
In most cases, calories were restricted in the low-fat groups, while the low-carb groups could eat as much as they wanted.
Intermittent fasting has as many and probably more of the benefits of calorie restriction, since under-nutrition is not a problem with fasting, as it may be with calorie restriction. As aging means an increasing tendency of an organism to break down and be more susceptible to disease, it follows that calorie restriction reduces disease.
The disease which is perhaps the archetype of aging is type 2 diabetes, which is characterized by insulin resistance and brought on by obesity and lack of exercise. In this study, the researchers put eleven people on a 600 calorie a day diet, which is very low by anyone’s standards. The participants’ hepatic glucose production and hepatic lipid content also rapidly dropped. All of this shows clearly that diabetes is a disease of over-nutrition, caused by too many or the wrong kind of calories, when those calories are not burned by exercise. One way that the issue of fasting is connected to the obesity epidemic is that most of the increase in calorie consumption that has taken place during the obesity epidemic has been through snacking.
Whenever I do intermittent fasting, my hands start feeling rather cold after about hour 14.

The low-carb group had greater improvements in blood triglycerides and HDL, but other biomarkers were similar between groups.
Study went on for 30 days (for women) and 50 days (for men) on each diet, that is a very low-carb diet and a low-fat diet.
The men on the low-carb diet lost three times as much abdominal fat as the men on the low-fat diet. There was no difference in triglycerides, blood pressure or HbA1c (a marker for blood sugar levels) between groups. Both groups had similar improvements in mood, but speed of processing (a measure of cognitive performance) improved further on the low-fat diet. Triglycerides, HDL, C-Reactive Protein, Insulin, Insulin Sensitivity and Blood Pressure improved in both groups.
Various biomarkers improved in both groups, but there was no significant difference between groups.
There was significant improvement in glycemic control at 6 months for the low-carb group, but compliance was poor and the effects diminished at 24 months as individuals had increased their carb intake. One of the key means through which calorie restriction works is through the activation of autophagy. Besides that, fasting for limited periods is just a whole lot easier to practice than long-term and severe limitation of food intake. Diabetes, in turn, predisposes to many other diseases, including cancer, heart disease, and vascular problems leading to infections and amputation, not to mention Alzheimer’s. Some researchers believe that insulin resistance comes first, leading to obesity, but whatever the sequence is, the connection is clear.
The food consisted of a liquid diet, Optifast, undoubtedly not the most optimal thing for anyone to eat, but which provided 510 calories a day, at 46% carbohydrate, 32% protein, and 20% fat; the remainder of the calories was provided by steamed vegetables. Plasma triglyceride levels, a good risk marker for heart disease, dropped in half during the first week. Jason Fung uses for his diabetic patients is fasting, and by all accounts quite successfully. The food and beverage industry, and to some extent even the fitness and health establishments, have convinced people that they need to be eating or drinking constantly. However, I take thyroid medication and have for years, and thyroid hormone replacement is notorious for not doing a complete job, so I’m unsure of how much my cold hands have to do with thyroid or with fasting.

A grueling regimen, no doubt, although the average participant weighed well over 100 kilos (220 pounds), so they perhaps could withstand the regimen well enough once they get into fat-burning mode. The treatment described in the paper was not fasting, but at 600 calories a day, was pretty close.
