A friend sent me a copy of a study sent out by a doctor who suggested this new data proved the correctness of Dr. Atkins approach. The flaw in this study lies in the fact that the plant based participants were allowed up to 30% of their caloric intake in fat. To characterize this as a low fat diet is absurd and consequently the findings of the study are of no use.
