We specifically tested the idea with a 12‐week study comparing two hypocaloric diets (~1,500 kcal): a carbohydrate‐restricted diet (CRD) (%carbohydrate:fat:protein = 12:59:28) […]

In a lipopolysaccharide (LPS)–induced fever model in rats, we found that animals given the KD for 14 days showed less fever and lower proinflammatory cytokine levels than control animals. However, KD rats exhibited a decrease in circulating levels of […]
