The current diet study making headlines purportedly asked, and answered this question: which is better for weight loss and improving cardiac risk, a low-fat or a low-carb diet? There is on-going debate today about specific effects of specific fats, but the wholesale cutting of dietary fat intake was pretty much yesterday’s news yesterday. The concept of low-carb is also terribly outdated, and was silly when it was first spawned. It was published in the Annals of Internal Medicine, and redounds much to the shame of this generally prestigious journal. In contrast, baseline carbohydrate intake was 240 grams per day, so while fat intake was “trimmed” 5%, carbohydrate intake in that assignment was slashed 75%. That would be bad and biased enough if the researchers had made any attempt to compare comparably good, or comparably bad versions of the two diets; but they did not. And finally, the low-carb diet, since it was actually low-carb, obviously was much more restrictive than the low-fat diet, which wasn’t actually low-fat.
If this had actually been a study comparing comparably good (or comparably bad), genuinely low-fat and low-carb diets, it would still be research stuck in the Stone Age.
Not relevant, because this was a study designed to generate a predictably useless, misleading, and potentially harmful answer to an egregiously silly and perhaps even willfully disingenuous question.

If the diet is done properly, then there should be plenty of room for vegetables, berries, and nuts. Gary Taubes deals with all of his in his magnum opus, which I doubt that you’ve read right through. Instead of your rambling incoherent columns which are a source of amusement to many, from your hospital which has a tenuous connection to Yale, I suggest that you write a metaphor-free essay on how you explain away the low-insulin levels of a low carb diet, and poo-hoo their significance. Folks, for any of you reading this, the fact that people on low carb lose weight by consuming fewer calories, I do not dispute, though it may be wrong.
A woman who lost 88 pounds in one year on a high-fat, low-carb ketogenic-Paleo diet that became an Internet sensation after a Reddit user posted a five-second GIF showcasing her stunning transformation. The 5-foot-4 Amanda, who declined to give her last name, slimmed down from 222 pounds to 134 pounds on a high-fat, low-carb, moderate-protein diet. She consumed 1,200-1,300 calories a day combining the principles of the Paleolithic diet and the low-carb, high-fat ketogenic diet. She continued: "I constantly run into people who tell me it's impossible to combine Keto and Paleo (because Paleo 'allows' for too many carbs). While conventional wisdom preaches that dietary fat is evil, the demonization of fat is increasingly being rejected by experts who underscore that high-quality fats (including saturated animal fats) are critical for good health. In 2012, a 51-year-old woman named Lynne Daniel Ivey shed 185 pounds on the ketogenic diet.

Because it is long known and well established that dietary fats run the gamut from good to bad to ugly. The relevant concept today would be plant-based eating, which at the extreme of veganism, tends to be low in fat- but as an effect rather than an objective. Everything from lentils to lollipops is carbohydrate; why on earth would anyone want to treat such a vast expanse of the food supply as if it were just one thing? If you only read the headlines, you will believe it did- and frankly, most people will only read the headlines.


This might have been billed “a study to compare a really big change from baseline diet to a really small change from baseline diet.” I suppose we can all guess why it wasn’t called that. The “low fat” diet was, for starters, not much lower in fat than the typical American diet, which as we all know- is basically crap. That had the predictable result: those on the low-carb assignment took in many fewer calories (this information in summarized in Table 2 in the article).
As the head of a clinical research lab, and the author of textbooks on research methods- I am an advocate of sound answers to sensible questions. It was a comparison of a quite restricted, lower-calorie, low-fiber diet; to a less restricted, higher calorie, equally low-fiber diet. In fact, I got more vegetables while eating only 20g of carbs per day than I ever did on a low-fat diet. The reason that people on low carb diets can eat less is because their insulin is low and as a consequence their fat depots readily release fat for burning.
Then we’ll have that on file to release when the dam of nutritional ingnorance finally breaks to flood the world in a healing balm of low carbosity.
It is generally harder to most people to obtain all their essential nutrients on low carb diets. She lost the weight between July 2011 and July 2012 without exercising, and has since kept it off.
The 5-foot-4 Ivey, who once tipped the scales at 324 pounds, slimmed down to 139 pounds by eating a high-fat diet and reducing her carb intake.
Eric Westman, said a high-fat, low-carb ketogenic diet not only produces rapid weight loss, but also combats epilepsy and reverses type 2 diabetes. David Perlmutter, author of Grain Brain, told me the low-carb ketogenic diet prevents — and in some instances reverses — Alzheimer's disease and ADHD.
Jeff Volek, author of The Art and Science of Low-Carbohydrate Living, told me the ketogenic diet reverses type 2 diabetes, prevents heart disease, and causes fast weight loss without hunger. Westman, director of the Duke University Obesity Clinic, is pleased that mainstream media is finally debunking the myth that eating fat makes you fat and sick.
A graduate of the University of Pennsylvania, Samantha enjoys running, cycling and photography. I doubt even the Paleo clan find the question attractive, since they like prehistoric food; not prehistoric research questions about food. No good diet should willfully exclude the monounsaturated fats and omega-3s in nuts and seeds and avocados; I’m pretty sure everybody not stuck under a boulder knows that. But in fact, they compared a diet that allowed up to 30% of calories from fat to a diet that allowed up to 40 grams of daily carbohydrate. The baseline fat intake of the participants in the low-fat assignment was just over 35% of calories, so this was, essentially, a diet intervention that didn’t intervene much with their diets. Shockingly, the fiber intake was virtually identical, at about 15-16 grams per day, in both groups throughout the study. Over the first several months of the study, when everyone was probably on their best behavior, the low-carb group took in about 200 fewer calories per day. And those who lost more weight had more improvement in their cardiac risk measures- which were mostly a mess in the first place due to obesity. Had it been such a study, it would still belong on the walls of a cave, rather than the pages of a generally high-quality peer-reviewed journal. He is the author of 15 books, including three editions of a nutrition textbook, four editions of an epidemiology textbook, and a text on clinical research methods. I’m effortlessly at a weight on a low carb diet that I could only attain on a low carb diet with extreme continuous gut-aching hunger.
What IS important is that sticking to carb discipline, it is dead easy to maintain indefinitely.


All marks, brands and names belong to the respective companies and manufacturers and are used solely to identify the companies and products. A truly “low carb” diet is, of necessity, low in all plant foods- including vegetables, fruits, nuts, seeds, beans, and lentils along with whole grains.
You cannot possibly eat any variant on the theme of “good” low-fat, mostly plant-based eating and fix the fiber intake at that pitiful level. All the way out at the 12-month mark, when folks were falling off the wagon, the low-carb assignees were still taking in nearly 100 fewer calories per day. That dietary pattern can be low or high in fat, relatively lower or higher in carbohydrate. This is directly at odds with everything we know about diet and health across the lifespan. The only way to do that is to combine modestly low fat with preferentially crummy foods made mostly from refined starches and added sugars.
The theme is pretty universal, but the variant on the theme that best suits you and your family is really up to you, and frankly- that’s the beauty of it.
The truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth are for the most part- entirely expendable. The people affected by this phenomenon are the people (the vast majority) who get obese, who get pre-diabetes, who get heart disease, diabetes, gout etc etc etc.
The study did not provide this level of detail about the diets, but it’s clear that the low fat diet was (A) not low fat; and (B) rather crummy. The researchers themselves called their interventions “low fat” and “low carbohydrate,” and must have known from the start they were cooking those definitions over very different fires. Thus, a high fat diet is the easiest to stay on because it reduces sugar cravings significantly and you don’t feel deprived and hungry all the time.Want to High Fat Low Carb It?
