This is all I could find:

http://www.news.uiuc.edu/scitips/01/04diet.html

"For 10 weeks, 24 mid-life women all above ideal weight ate 1,700-calories-a-day diets. One group ate according to the USDA Food Guide Pyramid – 55 percent carbohydrates, 15 percent protein (or 68 grams per day) and 30 percent fat. The experimental group ate a modified daily diet of 40 percent carbohydrates, 30 percent protein (125 grams a day) and 30 percent fat."

Acoording to my rough calculations, the first group ate 249 grams of carbs a day (total diet of 453 grams of food), and the second group ate an average of 181 grams a day (total diet of about 453 grams).
