New 2-year Diet War Study - Atkins Diet wins!!

In the news: Recently the Atkins diet was stacked up against the Mediterranean-style diet (a variant of a low-fat diet) and the low-fat diet in a two-year study on 322 participants residing in a controlled environment with meals laid on. The low-carb dieters lost the most weight and had the most improved cholesterol. The part I find weird is this and I quote: “The low-carb diet set limits for carbohydrates, but none for calories or fat. (that's fine, but read on) It urged dieters to choose vegetarian sources of fat and protein.”
