Advocates of low-carbohydrate diet are voicing concern about a recent
paper that suggested the diet could cause weight gain, contrary to
previous research. One expert has even called for its retraction.
The study, published in Nutrition & Diabetes in February, also found
that the low-carb diet did little to prevent the progression of type 2
diabetes. Researchers have since criticized the study for drawing these
conclusions based on data from a handful of mice, using a poor proxy for
the human version of the diet.
