Re: The other side of high cholesterol

I am puzzled as to how a low-carb diet and a low-fat diet can both be beneficial to good health. I done a lot of reading about the two diets and both seem to have good theory. Now we have the “optimal” diet, or Polish Diet which recommends the high consumption of fat daily. I read of one case where a man with a prior MI and CAD developed diabetes while on the low-fat diet and in desperation tried the “optimal” diet with astonishingly good results.
My best lipid profile was while on the low-carb diet but that fact is tainted because I was also taking 10mg of Lipitor at the time.
How can both diets be right? Maybe, in spite of their differences, they have something in common. Just a thought.
