High fat diet wins again

The LA Times reports:
The fascination with low-carb versus low-fat diet continues; the latest news comes from a study in the Annals of Internal Medicine released today that found that people on both diets lost about the same amount of weight over two years. However, the low-carb group had an edge in raising HDL (good) cholesterol and lowering diastolic blood pressure.
Part of the fascination is that these research studies regularly prove that the American Medical Assn. and most mainstream physicians have been almost entirely wrong in most of the dietary advice that they has given over the last 50 years.
