Nutrition Status of People with Low-Carb Diet compared to Normal Carb Diet

22 April 2018

We're investigating how LOW-CARB diets affect our body (body composition, nutritional status, heart disease risk) in people following a LOW-CARB diet for at least 1 month. Also we're looking for volunteers who eat normal carb diet as to be a control group in comparison to low-carb diet group.

Any low-carb diets are welcome! - Atkins, Paleo, Ketogenic, Gluten-free, etc.

If you have followed either a Low-Carb lifesyle or a normal carb diet, let's contribute towards Nutritional Science!
