The researchers from the University of Copenhagen found that a high protein/lower carbohydrate diet pattern is the best diet ever and according to the 'World's Best Diet', which is based on a large European study known as the Diogenes Diet, people on low GI carb and high protein combo diet not only kept the weight off during the six months of the study but they also continued to lose weight too.

Jennie Brand-Miller, Professor of Human Nutrition at the University of Sydney's Charles Perkins Centre. Brand-Miller revealed that this way of eating works because both protein and low GI carbs help us produce more of the satiety hormones that keep us feeling full.

There are no fluffy carbs in this diet. Instead it's based on fresh vegetables, lean protein sources like fish, poultry, legumes, nuts and dairy foods and dense, grainy foods like rye bread, pumpernickel and barley - the book's recipe for rye porridge with apple and hazelnuts is the polar opposite of lightweight breakfast cereal.

The researchers said that the reason these robust carbs are more filling than their more refined cousins like white bread isn't just that they keep blood sugar levels steadier and they also stimulate cells in the gut that produce one of the satiety hormones we need to feel full. These cells are located deep down in the gut - a place that rapidly digested carbs never reach because they're digested in the upper half of the gut.
