Low-carb vs. low-fat: New research says it doesn't really matter

For every patient I have who comes to me believing that a low-carb diet is the way to be healthy or control weight, I have another who has been unable to shrug off the vestiges of the low-fat era, convinced that eating more fat will lead to heart disease or weight gain.

I remind them that the evidence strongly suggests that when you reduce something in your diet — such as carbs or fat — it’s important to be mindful of what you replace it with. For example, when the public was advised to lower fat decades ago, most people swapped it for foods high in sugar and white flour, rather than with fruits, vegetables and whole grains. Not ideal.

When it comes to weight loss, the past several years of research show that low-carb diets may have a slight short-term edge on average, but that neither can claim true superiority, especially given that about 95 percent of dieters end up regaining. A decade ago, a group headed by nutrition scientist Christopher Gardner, professor of medicine at Stanford University, published a study comparing the Atkins, Zone, Ornish and LEARN diets among a group of 311 women. After a year, average weight loss was only a few pounds, but when you looked beyond that, the difference between losers and gainers on each of the four diets was huge: some lost 55 pounds, others gained 10 to 20 pounds. Why?

Should I be concerned about my already-skinny stepmother's unending quest to be thinner?

My stepmom is already thin. People comment on it all the time with worry in their voices. She's always been thin, yet she will not be convinced that she doesn't need to lose weight. In the 15 years I've known her, she has not stopped counting calories,

Hi, thats so wonderful that you are concerned about her. I definitely would be as well. My parents are both in the medical field so I know a bit myself about these sort of things. I would suggest first going to the person with the most sway over your

After fifteen years of this I would say it's a bit late for an intervention. I think she should be left alone now because she won't change and the harm has already been done.

you have every right to be scared..your step mom is extremely skinny and taking this huge amount of pills could lead to heart, blood, and a couple of other problems in her body...if she becomes too skinny she will have a problem with her stomach and her
