A new study has revealed that the human body can efficiently burn more calories on certain diets, especially a diet low on carbohydrates rather than a diet low on fat.

Foods with low glycemic index helped people burn 150 more calories a day than compared to a low-fat diet.

"The quality of the calories going in affects the number of the calories going out", researchers said.

Although with a low-carb diet people burned the most calories, research found that such diets increased stress hormones and inflammation which elevates the risk of heart disease. On the same lines, those on a low-fat diet will need to face the risks of insulin resistance and lipid levels.

"The low glycemic index diet gives you many of the same calorie burning advantages of the low-carb diet without any of the extremes," researchers said.
