This research compare the effects of low carbohydrate intake and consumption of 3 eggs per day, and low energy diet on diabetes control and biomarkers of CVD in obese people.


This research study examines the effects of changes in weight, metabolism of glucose and cholesterol in the blood through diet and behavior modification. The main objective of this study was to compare the effects of low carbohydrate intake and consumption of 3 eggs per day, and low energy diet on diabetes control and biomarkers of CVD in obese people. In addition, HDL quantity and size as well as HDL function was compared between the group who ate the whole egg and the group who did not eat the yolk.
