Länsi-Virginian yliopisto kyseli karpeilta miten karppaus toimii. Hyvin näyttää toimivan.
Tutkimus: karppaus laihduttaa, vaikuttaa myönteisesti sv-tautien riksitekijöihin ja saattaa tyypin 2 diabeteksen remissioon. Niin ja pitää kylläisenä ja parantaa elämän laatua. http://insulinresistance.org/index.php/ ... view/30/86
There were 1580 respondents. The majority of respondents had consumed less than 100 g of carbohydrates per day for over a year, typically for reasons of weight loss or disease management. There was a reported decrease in waist circumference and weight with a simultaneous decrease in hunger and increase in energy level. Of those who provided laboratory values, the majority saw improvements in their HbA1c, blood glucose measurements, and lipid panel results. There was a reduction in usage of various medications, and 25% reported medication cost savings, with average monthly savings of $288 for those respondents. In particular, the usage of pain relievers and antiinflammatories dropped with a simultaneous decreased rating of pain and increase in mobility. Conclusion: We conclude that low-carbohydrate diets are a sustainable method of metabolic syndrome reversal in a community setting.
Currently recommended drug treatments, nutritional guidelines and behavioural interventions have had limited to no success in halting the obesity and diabetes epidemics. This has resulted in exorbitant health care costs122 and indirect costs from lower quality of life123 and lost productivity124 for a growing proportion of the population. The premise of this research project is that excess carbohydrate intake in the Western diet is a major driver of the obesity and diabetes epidemics, and that restricting dietary carbohydrate to a level that permits utilisation of fat as the primary fuel will yield substantial weight loss and improvement in diabetes and metabolic syndrome, other health conditions and overall quality of life. Moreover, we show that for many, a lowcarbohydrate diet is satisfying and sustainable.
