Journal of Human nutrition & Dietetics 13 (4), 277-285 To test a novel approach to weight management based on positive advice to eat more carbohydrate-rich foods. The results of this pilot study show that replacing a main meal with breakfast cereal led to moderate weight loss, and a follow-up high-carbohydrate phase enabled weight loss to be sustained. We suggest that this regime has potential for further investigation and that promotion of carbohydrate-rich foods should be part of public health messages for weight control.
