Low-carbohydrate diets reduce calorie intake, cause weight loss, and reduce markers for cardiovascular disease according to a study from researchers from Duke University Medical Center in Durham, North Carolina and the University of California, Davis in Davis, California, USA. Comment
Comment: It is good that the scientific community has opened it’s eyes to low-carb diets
It is interesting that after bashing low-carb diets for 30 years or more and saying that they were dangerous, saying that they did not work, and saying that the only weight loss people experienced was due to a loss of water, that the scientific community finally started testing these diets several years ago and have come to appreciate their usefulness.
In 1993-1994 while writing my first book “The New Diet Pills”, I failed to do any research on these diets because I believed all the myths I had been told about high-protein, low-carbohydrate diets.
It wasn’t until I heard weight loss doctors after weight loss doctor after weight loss doctor say things like, “High-protein, low-carb diets always work,” that I finally thought, “Ghee, maybe I’ve got it all wrong.”
