Well said, all of you. You each make excellent points and give me something to think about.

If there's one thing reading these boards has made extremely plain to me, it's that the results obtained by force-feeding lab rats under very restrictive conditions are highly unlikely to generalize to free-eating humans, especially ones who invest food with a great deal of surplus meaning and moral value. There's a certain substrate of generalizability, obviously, but by the time you work through all the layers of habit, ritualistic behavior, denial, food availability, and a thousand other things, that substrate gets buried pretty deeply. I'd be a lot more convinced by a study with human subjects.

It is good to know opposing studies, don't you think? In physical sciences, there can't be subjective answers. Only results that conflict because not everything is known about what is going on.

And yet the low-carb proponents can probably name 15 studies proving low carb is better for you and leads to better weight loss success.

I think the lesson is - everything works for somebody. Find an approach that suits YOU, and don't tell others your way is the only way. There are many paths.

of what was already known. According to this study, low carb high fat diets are worse off than high carb low fat diets at the same caloric intake. www.nature.com/oby/journal/v14/n8/full/oby

I came across this study because for the past 6 weeks in which I ate low carb and high fat (almonds), I could not lose any significant fat. I will increase my complex carbs to my daily allowance so that I can at least work out comfortably.
