Figure 1.Comparison of features of Metabolic Syndrome on low carbohydrate vs. high carbohydrate diets. Data from reference [45].

Figure 2.Per cent change in response to diet. Low carbohydrate (dark blue 25 % CHO) and low fat diets(light blue: 45 % CHO). Data from Golay, et al. [52].

Figure 4.Effect of diet on plasma glucose. Mean plasma glucose concentration before (triangles) and after 5 weeks on control diet (yellow circles: (CHO:fat:protein = 55:30:15)) or 5 weeks on lower carbohydrate diet (blue circles: (20:50:30)). Meal points are Breakfast (B), lunch (L) and dinner(D) plus 2 snacks (S1, S2). Data from reference [57].
