More specifically, the authors randomized 19 obese men (BMI>30 & waist >40") w/T2DM to low calorie (1,000kcal/d) meal replacement and 12 similar men to a high protein, low carbohydrate diet that decreased daily caloric intake by 600kcal//d. Within 8 weeks, these men had lost 10% & 5% respectively in both weight (~20.9lbs vs ~11.9lbs) & waist circumference. They also noted significant improvements in fasting glucose, LDL cholesterol, and inflammatory markers as well as in sexual desire (Sexual Desire Inventory), erectile function (International Index of Erectile Function), and lower urinary tract symptoms (International Prostate Symptom Score).
