Participants in each group received exercise recommendations and nutritional supplementation (a multivitamin, chromium 1,000 mcg/day, and vanadyl sulfate 60 mg/day) and attended group meetings, The LGI diet consisted of an individualized 500-kcal reduction per day in energy intake, deriving 55% of energy from low-glycemic carbohydrates, whereas people on the LCKD restricted their carbohydrate intake to less than 20 g per day.
But the amounts they were given--enough vanadyl sulfate to supply 20 to 30 mg a day of vanadium--was more than 10 times higher than the tolerable upper intake level (UL) of 1.8 mg.
