Low-carb vs. low-fat: which diet works better?

Low-carb diets are currently very popular, and have been extolled for everything from helping lose weight to preventing disease. One group of scientists decided to test a low-carb diet head-to-head with a low fat diet to see which one caused dieters to lose more body fat. This week on WRVO's health and wellness show “Take Care,” hosts Lorraine Rapp and Linda Lowen speak with the leader of the study, Kevin Hall, a senior investigator at the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases, which is part of the National Institutes of Health.

More of this interview can be heard on "Take Care” Sunday at 6:30 p.m.  Support for this story comes from the Health Foundation for Western and Central New York.
