The result of the Atkins craze? People are still fat, and now their cholesterol is higher too.
A new set of studies released by the Mayo Clinic and the American Heart Association show that the low-carb craze has caused Americans to eat more fat and cholesterol without appreciably reducing their overall obesity.
The summary: Americans eat too much, eat too much fat, and don’t eat enough fruit, vegetables, and fiber.
Get this through your heads people, the way to lose weight is to–stop the presses–eat less, eat better, and exercise more. Alas, as long as people can make a buck by selling the “eat whatever you want and lose weight” diet, Americans will be lardasses.
