Secondly all the diets were calorie reduced only the control group was not tailored to the genetics. It was ordinary calorie reduced. Menaing the food was different. The Blog article is a bit limited. Though thanks for sharing. The calorie reduction for both types was 600 calories.
Yes, I found that very interesting. All the diets were calorie-reduced by 600 calories, and they all lost weight. But the people following nutrigenomic diets lost a lot more weight.
This isn't testing whether low-carb or low-fat or low-calorie works better. I think they were assuming that low-calorie would work in general, and were trying to determine whether the nutrigenomic diets, low-calorie would work better than just plain low-calorie. They kinda stacked the deck toward weight loss, since all of the diets were reduced calorie. However, I think that focuses the difference between the nutrigenomic diets and the regular diet even more.
Plus, I'd never heard the term "nutrigenomic" before, and I think it's cool. *grin* I love words.
