Mere evidens for type B kosten

En proteinrig kost med lidt færre kulhydrater og med lavere glykæmisk index (og flere fibre og fuldkorn) er tidligere vist at kunne bidrage til især at holde vægten nede hos prædiabetikere (type B), også selvom  der ikke var kalorierestriktion (Diogenes studiet). MEN, det virker også MED kalorierstriktion.

Objective: Bodyweight loss is essential to lower risk factors for type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease in
overweight patients. Therefore, we examined the effectiveness of the RNPC® program for short and long term
bodyweight reduction.
Methods: The RNPC® program is a novel weight loss and maintenance program achieving weight loss by an
energy-restricted 800–1000 kcal/day high-protein low-glycemic diet (weight loss phase), followed by an intensive
follow-up with a step-wise increase in energy intake to reach energy balance (weight stabilization
phases). The analysis included 12,179 overweight or obese patients treated in 54 RNPC® weight loss clinics in
France.
Results: A total of 10,809 (89%) patients completed the initial weight loss phase and 2996 (25%) completed the
full program. Median weight loss percentage was 10.7% (Interquartile range [IQR]: 5.8; 16.5) after a median of
105 days (IQR: 56; 175) during the weight loss phase, and a median of 17.5% (IQR: 12.7; 24.2) after a median of
251 days (IQR: 187; 350) at program completion.
Conclusion: The RNPC® program is cost-effective and well tolerated for short-term body weight loss as well as
effective in the long term among the patients completing the program. The program might be particularly
effective among patient with elevated fasting glucose.
