The summary of the recent Lustig et al study on low carb vs moderate and low fat is misleading.

The study hardly showed that eating low carb equals high CRP, high cortisol, and a heart attack waiting to happen! Just read the study yourself. Some markets got better, some didn't, but none changed that much. One thing that did improve, leptin sensitivity, probably explains why low carbs diets actually work and the rest are blowing smoke.

I've been doing low carb since 2008, and CRP, leptin, triglycerides, cholesterol, and cortisol all went from horrible to excellent. I lost 120 lb and kept it off. I eat a big bacon breakfast every day and total cholesterol is 124.

Try not to scare people away from what works with such weak innuendo!
