Testosterone Nation - Experimental Biology 2007: "Prolific low-carb researcher Dr. Jeff Volek's group had a couple posters at EB as well. Here's what they had to say:
• After 12 weeks, obese women on a very low carbohydrate ketogenic-diet had much less systemic inflammation compared to those that followed a low fat diet. For those that are interested, the inflammatory markers that decreased were: TNF-a, IL-8, MCP-1, E-selectin, I-CAM, and PAI-1.
• People on low-carb diets that ate 3 whole eggs each day also had decreased inflammation compared to those low carbers that ate egg substitutes (Note: Eat your eggs! They're also loaded with leucine).
• People on a low-carb diet who ate more saturated fat had a higher utilization of saturated fat and their livers produced less saturated fat. Low-carb diets seem to allow for increased use of saturated fats by the body as well as increased clearance."
