Inclusion/ Exclusion Criteria

Inclusion criteria for the dietary patterns-cancer systematic reviews included the following:

• Human subjects
• Subject populations from countries with high or very high human development, according to the
2012 Human Development Index
• Children, adolescents, and adults aged 2 years and older
• Subjects who were healthy or at elevated chronic disease risk
• Randomized or non-randomized controlled trial, prospective cohort study, or a nested case-
control study
• Intervention studies with a dropout rate ≤20% and a differential dropout rate of ≤15% between
• Intervnetion studies with a sample size of ≥30 subjects per study arm
• The intervention or exposure was adherence to a low carbohydrate diet (<45% energy from
• The comparator was adherence to a diet with different macronutrient proportion (including diets
>45% energy from carbohydrate)
• The outcomes were:
o Body Weight: BMI, BMI z-score, waist circumference, weight change, % body fat mass,
weight-for-age, length/stature-for-age, weight for stature, BMI-for-age, incidence of
healthy weight, overweight, obesity
o Cardiovascular Disease: LDL-C, HDL-C (including TC:HDL and LDL:HDL ratios),
triglycerides , blood pressure (systolic and diastolic), and incidence of hypertension,
myocardial infarction, stroke, CHD, CVD-related mortality

o Congenital Abnormalities: Risk of neural tube defects, congenital heart defects, cleft
lip/cleft palate

In addition, articles were included if they were published in English in a peer-reviewed journal between
January 2000 and October 2014. If an author is included on more than one primary research article that is
similar in content, the paper with the most pertinent data/endpoints was included. If data/endpoints from
both papers are appropriate, it was made clear that results are from the same intervention.

Exclusion criteria for the dietary patterns systematic reviews included:

• Animals and in vitro models

• Subject populations from countries with medium or low human development, according to the
Human Development Index
• Children under the age of 2 years
• Subjects who were hospitalized, diagnosed with disease, and/or receiving medical treatment

• Systematic review, meta-analysis, narrative review, before and after, uncontrolled, cross-
sectional, case-control, ecological designs

Articles were excluded if they were not published in English, or were published before January 2000.
Articles, abstracts, and presentations not published in peer-reviewed journals (e.g., websites, magazine
articles, Federal reports) were also excluded. Finally, if an author was included on more than one review
article or primary research article that is similar in content, the paper with the most pertinent
data/endpoints was included, and others were excluded.
