The stories are all about the current meeting at American Heart Association and presentations. All published in the last 24 hours, and there are many more.

What these stories fail to mention, is that there were 3 seperate studies presented, all showing the same results, better weight loss, and improved cholesterol numbers.

They do mention that one study (from Duke university, which we mentioned a few months ago) was funded by Atkins.

Yet they do not mention that the other study was funded by the American Heart Association, and the finding are essentially the same.

Atkins diet gains respect from unexpected quarters
By DANIEL Q. HANEY, ASSOCIATED PRESS

CHICAGO - Multitudes swear by the high-fat, low-carbohydrate Atkins diet, and now a carefully controlled study backs them up: Low-carb may actually take off more weight than low-fat and may be surprisingly better for cholesterol, too.

For years, the Atkins formula of sparing carbohydrates and loading up on taboo fatty foods has been blasphemy to many in the health establishment, who view it as a formula for cardiovascular ruin.

But now, some of the same researchers who long scoffed at the diet are putting it to the test, and they say the results astonish them. Rather than making cholesterol soar, as they feared, the diet actually appears to improve it, and volunteers take off more weight.

Still, the number of overweight people studied this way is small, and the research does not examine possible long-term ills or advantages, including how long people keep the pounds off.

So for now, the researchers say that much more research is necessary before the Atkins diet can be given an across-the-board endorsement, but at least they believe it is safe enough to take into much larger studies.

At least three formal studies of the Atkins diet have been presented at medical conferences over the past year, and all have reached similar results. The latest, conducted by Dr. Eric Westman of Duke University, was presented Monday at the annual scientific meeting of the American Heart Association, long a stronghold of support for the traditional low-fat approach.

Westman, an internist at Duke's diet and fitness center, said he decided to study the Atkins approach because of concern over so many patients and friends taking it up on their own. He approached the Robert C. Atkins foundation in New York City to finance the research.

Westman studied 120 overweight volunteers, who were randomly assigned to the Atkins diet or the heart association's Step 1 diet, a widely used low-fat approach. On the Atkins diet, people limited their carbs to less than 20 grams a day, and 60 percent of their calories came from fat.

"It was high fat, off the scale,' he said.

After six months, the people on the Atkins diet had lost an average of 31 pounds, compared with 20 pounds on the AHA diet, and more people stuck with the Atkins regimen.

Total cholesterol fell slightly in both groups. However, those on the Atkins diet had an 11 percent increase in HDL, the good cholesterol, and a 49 percent drop in triglycerides. On the AHA diet, HDL was unchanged, and triglycerides dropped 22 percent. High triglycerides may raise the risk of heart disease.

While the volunteers' total amounts of LDL, the bad cholesterol, did not change much on either diet, there was evidence that it had shifted to a form that may be less likely to clog the arteries.

"More study is necessary before such a diet can be recommended,' Westman said. "However, a concern about serum lipid (cholesterol) elevations should not impede such research.'

No single study is likely to change minds toward the issue, especially since an initial weight loss is hard to maintain on any diet. Some answers could come from a yearlong study being sponsored by the National Institutes of Health. That experiment, being directed by Dr. Gary Foster of the University of Pennsylvania, will test the Atkins diet on 360 patients.

In the meantime, the heart association's president, Dr. Robert Bonow of Northwestern University, said the organization will reconsider the Atkins diet as more research results become available.

"Having our top academic centers look at this is wonderful,' he said. "We are still dealing with small numbers of patients. We just need more data.'

Dr. Sidney Smith, the heart association's research director, said it was a surprise that the Atkins diet did not raise LDL cholesterol. "One small study like this flies in the face of so much evidence. We can't change dietary recommendations on the spot,' he said.

Here in the Chicago area, I saw three different channels, discuss the diet. With a great big "BUT in the study group the participants took fish oil which skewed the results. Fish oil lowers LDL and raises HDL" All three channels almost announced this news verbatim... and all three had a negative tone in their voices.. At least it was announced and maybe it got some peoples attention.

One article was the AHA's response to all the media attention to the Duke University study. It was very dismissive, saying it was a "small" study, and was too short to show long-term effects of a high fat/low carb diet. But this statement is what really got to me:

"By way of contrast with this small study, a 12-year Harvard study funded by the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute was also reported at this meeting. This study of 74,000 women showed that those who consumed more fruits and vegetables were 26 percent less likely to become obese than women who ate fewer fruits and vegetables over the same time period. "This is a much more compelling study regarding weight control, because it involved many more individuals over a much longer period," says Bonow. "

#1 There is a huge difference between what it takes to PREVENT gaining vs. what it takes to LOSE weight.

#2 There is always the assumption that Atkins doesn't allow vegetebles, which, of course, is false.

On the positive side, the whole article just seemed like they were back-peddling, trying to come up with a snappy reason why their dietary guidelines are still the only way to go.

Everytime I turn on the tv, I am hearing more and more positive news stories about the Atkins diet. Lowcarbing is finally catching on. Pretty soon all of us here will be able to say that we were lowcarbing when lowcarbing wasn't cool.

it's true they shouldn't have taken fish oil, as it probably did alter results, in a true scientific sense but then....

who cares ??? that's a stupid comment. If doing Atkins and taking fish oil supplements promotes good weight loss AND better cholesterol, what are you going to say.....oh well we don't recommend Atkins because it requires taking supplements ? duh !

Everyone should take some kind of omega 3 rich supplement anyway, no matter what kind of diet they are following.

I hope "crow" is part of a low fat diet, because the Dean Ornishes and other low fat guru's will be eating plenty!!!!!!

Was..
But there is a problem with the study.. atkins funded part of it.
The man can't win. For years Ornish has been at him to fund the study.... like who funed ornish by the way??
So.. finally he does fund part of it.. then they imply that the results are skewed because he funded part of it.

Oh well..
yup. I am glad to be part of such an unpopular group!

From WGN-TV in Chicago comes this newsbite about the Atkins Diet. http://wgntv.trb.com/news/local/noo...noon%2Dnews%2D1


[B]Atkins diet
SOME BAD NEWS IN THE QUEST FOR A QUICK WAY TO SHED POUNDS AND STAY HEALTHY... DOCTORS ARE WEIGHING IN ON THE ATKINS DIET STUDY AND THEY SAY IT'S NOT AS GOOD AS IT SEEMS. THE STUDY WHICH WAS FUNDED BY THE ATKINS FOUNDATION FOUND THE HIGH FAT, LOW CARBOHYDRATE DIET HELPED PEOPLE SHED POUNDS, GAIN GOOD CHOLESTEROL LEVELS AND POSSIBLY BOOST HEART PERFORMANCE. BUT THE STUDY ONLY LOOKED AT 60 PEOPLE ON THE ATKINS DIET FOR SIX MONTHS. EXPERTS AT THE AMERICAN HEART ASSOCIATION SAY THE STUDY IS TOO SMALL. THEY WARN THERE WAS NOT ENOUGH TIME FOR THE STUDY TO OFFER AN ACCURATE PORTRAYAL OF HEALTH BENEFITS. AND THEY POINT OUT THE LACK OF LONG TERM EVIDENCE, INSTEAD CITING A 12 YEAR HARVARD DIET STUDY WHICH FOUND A HIGH FAT INTAKE LIKE IN THE ATKINS DIET INCREASES THE HEART DISEASE RISK. Vegetables AND FRUIT, OFTEN AVOIDED BY ATKINS FAITHFULS DECREASES THE CHANCE OF OBESITY OVER TIME./[B]

My question is? Was there ever a 12 year Anti- Atkins study at Harvard ???? I wonder if they got that confused with the Willett Study mentioned by Taubes????

I think I'll E-Mail Channel Nine and ask..

Sometimes I wonder if the people writing the news actual research the topics.

In most cases, the complaints against Atkins that I have found are not even true. I've heard people say that he doesn't encourage exercise, that's it's all about eating eggs and steak, that it's called "low-carb, high protein".. reading New Diet Revolution you realize that none of that is true.

Makes you wonder what else is being skewed by the news. (Course, next month another story will vindicate Atkins again and they'll be all over that in a positive way. )

Here is the dumbest part...the studies that show saturated fat is bad are far less scientific. One, that some Anti-Saturated Fat types have latched onto...studied 9 men who were in perfect health and had great cholesterol. They locked them in a building and fed them nothing but meat, eggs, and cream for a month. When they tested them at the end, their TOTAL Cholesterol (no mention of LDL/HDL ratio) had gone up.

How is it that anyone can tout studies like this, with only 9 participants, who were fed an all-meat diet (not Atkins) for only a month...Yet, they can dismiss studies with 120 participants, fed exactly according to either Atkins or AHA Guidelines, over 6 months ??? I'd love to know what conditions their other Anti-Saturated fat studies were done under. I'd bet most were far less scientific than these Pro-Atkins studies.

Maybe the AHA should do a long-term CONTROLLED study...As I doubt they've ever done so. Alot of the studies they rely on are not too well controlled. For example, finding that people who eat lots of vegetables are more healthy, does not take into account other aspects of their diet. Was the rest of their diet more Atkinsish or more AHAish ??? Despite what they'd have you beleive, Atkins is very high in green vegetables (the best kind).
