Abstract

SUMMARY

A PRIMARY CONCERN WITH CONVENTIONAL WEIGHT LOSS APPROACHES IS THE LOSS OF LEAN BODY MASS THAT OCCURS WHEN FAT MASS IS DECREASED. CONSUMING MODERATE PROTEIN, WHILE RESTRICTING CARBOHYDRATE, ALLOWS FOR GREATER PRESERVATION OF LEAN BODY MASS. A LOW-CARBOHYDRATE DIET IN CONJUNCTION WITH PERIODIZED RESISTANCE TRAINING PROMOTES GREATER FAT LOSS WHILE PRESERVING LEAN BODY MASS AND PROMOTING ROBUST IMPROVEMENTS IN METABOLIC HEALTH.
