Summary: A total of 83 men and women with type 2 diabetes were randomly assigned to an isocaloric, energy-restricted diet of either standard carbohydrate or high protein, with or without supervised RT for 16 weeks. An energy-restricted HP diet combined with RT achieved greater weight loss and more favorable changes in body composition. All treatments had similar improvements in glycemic control and CVD risk markers.
