It warms my heart to see something like this published in the New England Journal of Medicine. Maybe just maybe people are starting to come around.

While I agree with you Derek that this is good news, it seems there may have been some issues along with the study. For more info, read the comments here (http://www.marksdailyapple.com/unrestricted-low-carb-diet-wins-hands-down/)

"low-fat" diet ????

"The low-fat diet was based on American Heart Association guidelines....They took in just 30% of calories from fat...."

...just 30%...they coulda been on the zone.

The debate about the best weight loss diet is on again, with all the usual contenders.

It's probably ironic that the people that sit around and debate this stuff are most likely overweight themselves....it's the needing to find the perfect diet that is keeping people fat...just eat healthy...it's not that hard.....

MOD by eating low fat--they think they are eating HEALTHY!

Just saw a thing on Good Morning America that the "expert" solution from this study is to eat:
Low-fat
Low-carb
Low-calorie
Make sure to get plenty of "good fats" and "good carbs"

Jeez. Talk about trying to confuse people. They had to bring up the protein toxicity issue yet again, while still never including amount of protein in any of their "expert" recommendations.
