New York Times: “A Call for a Low-Carb Diet” Covers a Major New Study

Today’s NY TImes has a front page article in the Science Times section entitled  “A Call for a Low-Carb Diet” .  The link to the article is here,   The author cites  a recent National Institutes of Health (NIH)-funded study that shows better cholesterol and weight outcomes for people eating a low-carbohydrate vs low-fat diet.  An eight pound difference was noted, with cholesterol changes seen in the type of LDL, or bad cholesterol.  The low-carb group had more fluffy LDL, reducing their chances for heart attack and stroke.  Good article.
