Did you read the part about the fruit and vegetable requirements? Could the antioxidant power of these counteract the effects of extreme consumption of saturated fats?
How long was the study? What are the long-term implications of such a diet? Is a sample of 157 diabetics representative of the entire population?

Maybe it's right, maybe it's wrong. More than likely, it's somewhere in the middle.
My main point is that medical knowledge is evolving, and theories change, and to make a statement like "this would apply to anyone", and "saturated fat is good", seems very pretentious and close-minded.

Please continue to follow new developments and studies with an open mind.
: See the attached link for a summary of the studies. The studies were done on diabetics, but this would apply to anyone that is overweight. This just backs up what Dr. Atkins, Dr. Eades, and Dr. Bernstein have been saying all along. The conclusion: Low carb diets are good. Saturated fat is good too. Any comments? Alan S.
