A low-carb diet consisting of (20 g/d for 3 months) in the form of low–glycemic index vegetables with unrestricted consumption of fat and protein turns out to be healthier than the universally accepted low-fat diet consisting of limited energy intake (1200 to 1800 kcal/d; ≤30% calories from fat).
Vegetables & meat are healthier than grains.
BTW, this study was funded by the National Institutes of Health – no Atkins money in sight.
