Default Low-carb and Mediterranean diets beat low-fat for weight-loss, lipid changes at two years

I posted this yesterday at 7pm, but it never got here. Listen to the ADA
(still nut-jobs).
--------

Beer-Sheva, Israel - Both a low-carbohydrate diet or a Mediterranean-style
diet may be "effective alternatives" to a low-fat diet, with more favorable
effects on lipids and/or glycemic control, new research suggests [1]. The
two-year study, which managed to keep almost 85% of the 322 study
participants on one of the three diets for the entire period, offers the
hope that weight-loss diets can be tailored to personal preferences, without
sacrificing efficacy, researchers say.

"Several recent one-year dietary studies have led the American Diabetes
Association to state in January 2008 that low-carb diets should be
considered for a maximum of one year," lead author on the study, Dr Iris
Shai (Ben Gurion University of the Negev, Beer-Sheva, Israel), told
heartwire. "The current two-year study suggests that one low-fat diet
doesn't fit all, meaning that the old paradigm should be reconsidered."

Yes, but it's typical. They make is sound like LC or Mediteranean
diets are some second choice alternative to the usual LF diet when in
fact both produced results that were superior to LF, including
cholesterol improvement and C reactive protein. And then for good
measure, they throw in the i year limit, which clearly implies they
still think LC is dangerous.

Only if you eat that Mediterranean food in the same quantity as the slender
inhabitants of that part of the world.

``Tailoring for personal preferences'' is simply another way of saying
``Reducing the amount of the preferred type of food.''

Doh.
