PARIS -- A diet low in carbohydrates could help obese people maintain their weight loss by increasing the number of calories their bodies are able to burn, experts said Wednesday. Presenting their findings at the international Obesity Week conference in Nashville, Tennessee, doctors said a low-carb diet could allow formerly overweight patients to live a healthier life by keeping the pounds off long term.
