This is big news?

Low-Carb Diets Combat Metabolic Syndrome

I guess it is to people who have had their head buried in the sand. Low-carbers have known this for years. We live it.

I'm glad to see that a study was done, however small it may be. And these participants got good results even though they didn't follow it as the study suggested! How much better it would have been had they followed it to the letter!

Of course they always have to have the "doubter" in the article somewhere. Sadly, this one comes from right here in St. Louis. I'll give her credit though.. she isn't outright saying the whole study should be dismissed. She's just saying that it may not apply to everyone. She seems to think it might not work for those who do not have metabolic syndrome. I disagree! I know many who do not suffer from metabolic syndrome, and they are doing excellent on a low-carb diet.

I can't wait to see what "surprises" them next....

I think if a person does not have metabolic issues, lowcarb will still work, but won't be "needed" -- they could do traditional highcarb dieting and still lose fat. Maybe that is what she actually meant... or not! Oh well. I agree... we live it every day!

You may be right PJ.. that may be what she meant. We can hope, right?

Low carb can help prevent metabolic syndrome just as it can treat it. Makes sense to me....I firmly believe this is the way we were meant to eat!

I agree Cindy! I think LC is an excellent option for most people - metabolic syndrome or not!
