Update on Research Regarding American Heart Assoc. Diet

03/13/2002

Question:

I understand that Dr. Brehm is conducting a study comparing a high protein diet with the low-fat diet recommended by the American Heart Association. I would like to know how this is coming along and if any conclusions have been reached.

Answer:

Thank you for your interest in my clinical research study that is comparing the anthropometric and metabolic effects of the Atkin`s low carbohydrate diet and the American Heart Association low fat weight loss diet. We have completed Year One of the study and are currently conducting Year Two. The results of Year One will hopefully be published soon in a professional journal. Until then, I cannot provide conclusions of the study for you.
