    Low fat vs low carb and cholesterol

    I know there have been links posted in this forum to studies showing that low carb diets are superior to low fat diets for improving cholesterol.

    I can't seem to find them for some reason, can anyone link me to actual studies?

    here's one...

    Weight and metabolic outcomes after 2 years on a low-carbohydrate versus low-fat diet: a randomized trial


    "Conclusion: Successful weight loss can be achieved with either a low-fat or low-carbohydrate diet when coupled with behavioral treatment. A low-carbohydrate diet is associated with favorable changes in cardiovascular disease risk factors at 2 years."

    This is a guinea pig study but still has interesting results:

    Carbohydrate restriction favorably alters lipoprotein metabolism in Emirati subjects classified with the metabolic syndrome. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19748249

    A randomized controlled trial on the efficacy of carbohydrate-reduced or fat-reduced diets in patients attending a telemedically guided weight loss program. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19615091

    Carbohydrate restriction, as a first-line dietary intervention, effectively reduces biomarkers of metabolic syndrome in Emirati adults. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19587123

    And particularly relevant to this group...
    Metabolic and physiologic improvements from consuming a paleolithic, hunter-gatherer type diet. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19209185

    Sorry, got a little carried away digging around!
