More good news on Atkins

As David and I prepare to go on the Atkins Diet, I'm doing research on the negative health effects people get so worried about... and finding only the opposite. Healthtalk, a firm I might be doing a little work for soon,
summarizes a recent study that showed not only did obese women on an Atkins-style low-carb diet lose twice as much weight as women on a low-cal/low-fat diet, they had no negative impacts to their lipid profile, cardiovasular health, or general health. I continue to believe that whatever small risks low-carb has, they are dwarfed by the known risks of obesity.
