September 1, 2014 http://www.nytimes.com/2014/09/02/health/low-carb-vs-low-fat-diet.html?smid=tw-share&_r=0 People who avoid carbohydrates and eat more fat, even saturated fat, lose more body fat and have fewer cardiovascular risks than people who follow the low-fat diet that health authorities have favored for decades, a major new study shows. We’ve eaten Paleo/low carb for the past 4 years or so. I’ve probably been less physically active than ever in that time (this will be changing soon!) and still lost about 30 lbs (60lbs off my all time high) and have my other health numbers all in good shape. It’s remarkable.
