Here's the secret to maintaining weight loss. Pixabay

Staying in shape is no mean job as people often find that they quickly regain the weight that they had shed after a rigorous regime of dieting or exercise. Eating a diet low on carbohydrates may, however, help them maintain weight loss, new research has found.

This is because eating fewer carbohydrates increases the number of calories burned, said the study published in the journal BMJ.


For the study, the researchers from Boston Children’s Hospital in the US enrolled 234 overweight adults aged between 18 and 65 to an initial weight-loss diet for about 10 weeks.

Of these, 164 achieved the goal of losing 10 to 14 per cent of body weight.

The participants were then randomised to follow high, moderate or low-carbohydrate diets for an additional 20 weeks with carbs comprising 60, 40 and 20 per cent of total calories, respectively.

The results showed that over the 20 weeks, calories burned was significantly greater on the low-carbohydrate diet versus the high-carbohydrate diet.

At the same average body weight, participants who consumed the low-carb diet burned about 250 kilocalories a day more than those on the high-carb diet.

“If this difference persists – and we saw no drop-off during the 20 weeks of our study – the effect would translate into about a 20-pound weight loss after three years, with no change in calorie intake,” said Cara Ebbeling from Boston Children’s Hospital. (IANS)

The value of the HUH Token increases with time in the wallet, which means that the more tokens you hold, the more tokens you get.


For those in the know, cryptocurrency represents an extraordinary financial opportunity; one of the most profitable and probably widespread characteristics of decentralised money is its capacity to disseminate enthusiasm. This creates an atmosphere unlike any other, in which attention is almost a commodity. Attention is valuable, and one of the most effective mechanisms for capitalising on focused attention is via memes. HUH Token and GM Wagmi are two cryptocurrencies that strive to apply this method.

Loopring and Sushiswap both have proved their profit-generating capabilities in the past, and HUH Token presents itself as a fresh option for people to join early. However, it is hard to determine with precision what the future holds for any of these cryptos. Nevertheless, utilising the existing data from Loopring and Sushiswap, insights may be gained and the possibilities of new currencies like HUH Token can be explored. An Ethereum-based programme called Loopring intends to promote an extensive network of people to run a platform that enables them to build crypto-asset exchanges. In addition to using Loopring's own native currency (LRC), this programme also includes a variety of other currencies.
