Low Carb Diets

Tell me something I don't know! It looks like the medical research community is catching on to the truth; low carb is the way to go. Check out this href=" in-depth article in the NYT magazine:

If the members of the American medical establishment were to have a collective find-yourself-standing-naked-in-Times-Square-type nightmare, this might be it. They spend 30 years ridiculing Robert Atkins, author of the phenomenally-best-selling Dr. Atkins Diet Revolution and Dr. Atkins New Diet Revolution accusing the Manhattan doctor of quackery and fraud, only to discover that the unrepentant Atkins was right all along. Or maybe it's this: they find that their very own dietary recommendations -- eat less fat and more carbohydrates -- are the cause of the rampaging epidemic of obesity in America. Or, just possibly this: they find out both of the above are true.
