DailyMail.com has a few of the details. A snippet:
More than 120,000 people signed up to a ‘low-carb’ diet plan launched by the forum diabetes.co.uk in a backlash against official advice.
More than 80,000 of those who ditched a low-fat high-carbohydrate diet found their blood glucose level drop after ten weeks.
By rejecting official guidelines and eating a diet high in protein and low in starchy food – along with ‘good saturated fats like olive and nuts – more than 80 per cent of the patients said they had lost weight.
An article at The Times says, “The results have led doctors to call for an overhaul of official dietary guidelines.”
Regular readers here won’t be surprised by these findings.
The road to this revolution is paved with scientific studies showing that dietary saturated fat has little or nothing to do with causing cardiovascular disease. I crossed that Rubicon in 2009.
If you want the benefits of low-carb eating, check out my free Low-Carb Mediterranean Diet. The book is even better.
