I went to the NLA Pittsburgh meeting 2 weeks before this Obesity meeting. I was surprised the NLA PART lifestyle guidelines advised a diet with saturated fat less that 10% and cholesterol less than 200 mg/d.
I found out that Look Ahead advised its lifestyle arm to eat less than 30% of calories from fat, with < 10% from saturated fat.
Below are 3 graphs showing 10 years of data.
The red circles are the control data.
There was no difference in outcome data making this a negative trial.
What does this say about lifestyle changes of saturated fat less 10% and low fat diet in the lifestyle change group?
