Many of us seem to be constantly obsessed with working out and staying fit. Many of us also seem to fail at the task. So when news of a successful way to get in shape comes along people tend to take notice.
The latest news is actually old news. A two-year study focused on the low-carb Atkins-style diet with a low-fat diet and a Mediterranean-style diet. A report in The New England Journal of Medicine determined that the 322 participants all achieved weight loss and improved cholesterol. But it also found that a low-carb diet similar to the Atkins diet helped improve cholesterol levels more than the two competing diets.
Supporters of the Atkins diet are calling the results of the study comparing it to other weight-loss regimens "vindication."
So what do you think? Have you tried the low-carb diet, if so does it work for you? Will you try it now because of this latest study?
Myself, I think I'll just stick with the treadmill and watch what I eat.
