Abstract

According to this study:

 

* The specific composition of macronutrients (fat, protein, or carbohydrate) in diets isn't important for cardiovascular risk reduction, as long as the diet is effective in causing weight loss.

 

* Nurses counseling patients on weight loss should help to design a reduced-energy diet that meets personal preferences. Engaging patients in a weight-loss support group may enhance the effectiveness of the diet.
