The initial rapid weight loss you get with any calorie restricted low carb diet is mostly glycogen and water. You're actually mobilising/oxidising fat at about the same rate as that guy who did the Twinkie diet.

Yep. If your energy intake is less than your energy output you'll lose weight regardless of what you eat or the macronutrient ratio of your diet with the amount of fat mobilised and oxidised being determined by the extent and duration of the caloric deficit.
