|Issue Date:||2009||Publisher:||0029-6643||Journal:||Nutrition Reviews||Abstract:||This paper compares the efficacy of two widely used weight-loss diets differing in macronutrient composition - a low-carbohydrate diet versus a low-fat diet. Although "a calorie is a calorie" under the controlled conditions of a metabolic unit (i.e., only the level of calorie intake matters and not the source of calories), we conclude that these interrelationships are far more complex in the free-living situation. The different diet-related factors that condition energy balance, including total energy intake, satiety and hunger sensory triggers, and palatability, must be considered when assessing the efficacy of weight-reducing diets of different macronutrient composition. © 2009 International Life Sciences Institute.||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/10553/44769||ISSN:||0029-6643||DOI:||10.1111/j.1753-4887.2009.00169.x||Source:||Nutrition Reviews[ISSN 0029-6643],v. 67|
