Key exclusion criteria
- Patients will be excluded if they are below the healthy weight range (BMI < 25 kg/m2)
or if they are morbidly obese (BMI > 35 kg/m2).

- Patients with heart failure NYHA Class 4 will be excluded due to their increased risk
of developing cachexia.

Summary
Brief summary
This study is looking at overweight patients with chronic heart failure (CHF), to compare the
effects of a modified fat diet with a reduced glycaemic load (diet 1); and a conventional low
fat, high carbohydrate diet (diet 2) on:

- insulin sensitivity (using the homeostasis model assessment [HOMA] model)

- lipid profile

- symptomatic status (6 minute walk distance and Heart Failure Quality of Life [HF QOL]
Questionnaire)

- body weight

- inflammatory mediators (tumor necrosis factor [TNF] alpha, C-reactive protein [CRP],
interleukin-6 [IL-6])

The hypotheses of this study are:

- Diet 1 will be associated with lower insulin resistance than diet 2.

- The lipid profile will be better in CHF patients on diet 1 than on diet 2.

- Patients on diet 1 will have a better symptomatic status than patients on diet 2.

- Diet 1 will maintain body weight in patients with CHF as well as diet 2.

- Diet 1 will suppress the expression of TNF-alpha, CRP and IL-6 more than diet 2.
