  1. In other words, these studies are garbage and can not be determined due to non controlling calories. So many possibilities due to a shitty test. We need true "controlled" complete studies

  2. norton's remarks on insulin's blunting of muscle catabolism via carbohydrate consumption is interesting, but sufficient intake of protein should induce a similar insulinogenic effect, so my guess is high-enough protein intakes in the context of low-carbohydrate nutrition should yield equally muscle-sparing effects, right?

  3. also, twelve weeks seems way to short of a study duration to meaningfully compare body composition changes between low-carbohydrate and moderate-to-high carbohydrate diets, especially if the former group isn't metabolically or behaviorally adapted to such a way of eating. didn't phinney's virta health do a related study examining glycogen levels in two groups, finding that low-carb and well-adapted athletes had equal levels of muscle glycogen compared to their moderate-to-high-carbohydrate peers? doesn't gluconeogenesis handle sufficiently handle gylcogen production and replacement in the context of low-carbohydrate eating, albeit at a slower rate than eating a higher amount of carbohydrates?

    cheers, folks.
