Dear Mini
There is no evidence that the girl in question would not also have lost a lot of weight with the low-GI diet. Each person has a different metabolism and will react differently to each one of the diets that are available. I am aware of the fact that some people lose masses of weight with a high-protein diet (a lot of this is water due to the diuretic effect of protein and ketosis), but I cannot as a responsible dietitian recommend any diet or procedure that can cause potential harm to my Readers. And the high-protein diets are potentially harmful. If you think that the diet you are using is not tailored to your metabolism you can always have a gene test done to determine if you are such an individual and to find out what type of diet and exercise you genetic makeup will react to most favourably.
