Authors: Tracy K. Her, William S. Lagakos, Matthew R. Brown, Nathan K. LeBrasseur, Kuntol Rakshit, Aleksey V. Matveyenko

From the authors: “These studies support the hypothesis that low carbohydrate/high fat diets provide anti-obesogenic benefits and suggest further evaluation of the effects of these diets on beta cell biology in humans.”

This study is highlighted as one of June’s "best of the best" as part of the American Physiological Society's APSselect program.
