According to researchers, low carb diets are better than low fat diets for:

  1. Lowering diastolic blood pressure
  2. Lowering triglycerides
  3. Lowering very-low density lipoprotein cholesterol
  4. Increasing high-density lipoprotein cholesterol

Isn’t that strange.

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.


Who would have guessed that???

BTW, this study was funded by the National Institutes of Health – no Atkins money in sight.
