Count Calories, Not Carbs
Interview: George Bray, MD, professor
chief, Division of Clinical Obesity and Metabolism, Pennington Biomedical Research Center
Modern dieters obsess about their carb, protein and fat intake. But a new study challenges the idea that weight loss depends on adjusting nutritional components.
Obesity researcher George Bray, MD, found that weight loss (and gain) depends solely on the number of calories an individual consumes, not the constituency of the calories.
Sound Medicineís David Crabb, MD, discusses Bray's work and its implications.
Dr. Bray is a professor and chief of the division of clinical obesity and metabolism at Pennington Biomedical Research Center.
