Default Re: "Two Studies Vindicate Atkins Diet"

This is great news, despite the negative spin by poor disappointed dieticians

We've made it into the New England Journal of Medicine

Dr. Frederick F. Samaha of the Philadelphia Veterans Affairs Medical Center, who led the VA study, said both studies indicate that people do lose more weight on Atkins, ``but the difference is not great.''

The 132 men and women in the VA study started out weighing an average of 286 pounds (129 kilograms). After six months, those on the Atkins diet had lost an average of 12.8 pounds (5.8 kilograms), those on the low-fat diet 4.2 pounds (1.9 kilograms).

The difference is not great, just 3 times the weight-loss
